Examples of themed McDonald's holiday items like the "Frosty the Snowman" McFlurry.

An iconic food chain is helping people get into the holiday spirit by combining classic menu items with beloved holiday movies. McDonald’s holiday film character meals should definitely be on your Christmas to-do list. They’re fun, festive, and (best of all) free!

From Dec. 14-24, McDonald’s will offer free holiday menu items inspired by famous Christmas characters. To get the deal, just order in the app and make a least a $1 purchase. You’ll then be qualified to add the daily deal to your cart. Deals include Frosty’s favorite McFlurry, fries with just a tip of ketchup for Rudolph, and on Christmas Eve, Santa’s fave chocolate chip cookies.

“After a year like 2020, I think we could all use some extra cheer this season,” Morgan Flatley, McDonald’s U.S. chief marketing officer, said in a press release. “What better way to celebrate and get into the holiday spirit than with free McDonald’s menu favorites for everyone, including Rudolph, the Abominable Snow Monster, and yes, even Scrooge.”
