We know it may still be November, but from the moment we take our Halloween decorations down, it's pretty much It's a Wonderful Life season if you ask us. That's why we were so excited when our friends at Simplemost shared that you can view the 1946 classic film for free on Amazon Prime. "The streaming service even allows you to watch the iconic movie in color! For the purists, however, a black-and-white version is still available," write Kate Streit in the piece, reminding us to make a mental note to carve out time to watch both versions this holiday season.

It's worth noting for non-Amazon Prime users: In order to watch the classic flick for free, you'll have to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime (don't forget to cancel it if you don't want to continue with the service after your trial month).

WATCH: Dolly Parton and Hallmark Are Teaming up for the Christmas Movie of Our Dreams!

If you've already commenced your holiday movie kick, may we suggest checking out some more old-timey hits? Rotten Tomatoes recently released its list of the best Christmas movies of all-time and the top five list is sensational: After It's a Wonderful Life in the #1 slot (phew), comes Meet Me in St. Louis, followed by Miracle on 34th Street, The Shop Around the Corner, and Holiday Inn.

What's your absolute favorite movie to watch during the holiday season? Are you all about the traditional classics or do you have some modern-day Christmas movies on your must-watch list? If you ask us, it just doesn't get any better than James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, and Thomas Mitchell in It's a Wonderful Life.

We'll see you on the living room couch in a few for some quality streaming time together.
