Top 10 Christmas Movies

Top 10 Christmas Movies

This article is dedicated to my Christmas loving sister, Erin. Merry Christmas!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! One of my favorite things to do during Christmas time is curl up with some fuzzy socks, pop some popcorn, and watch Christmas movies. Here are some of my favorites!

1. Elf

This Christmas movie is such a classic. Buddy the Elf travels through the Candy Cane forest and through the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops just to find his dad in New York City. One of my favorite scenes is when Santa visits the North Pole. This movie is by far one of the best Christmas movies there is.

2. Four Christmases

Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon will literally keep you laughing out loud in this movie. I can only imagine being a part of the four christmases they both have to go through. Oh and not mention, the two actors playing Mary and Joseph in the church play. My favorite one liner from this movie is, “Swaddle that baby!” If you don't know what I am referring to, please do yourself a favor and watch the movie.

3. Christmas with the Kranks

This one is such a good movie. Nora and Luther Krank, christmas fanatics, “skip” Christmas and decide to go on a cruise. Their plan was going all too well, until their daughter Blair decides to come home from the holidays.

4. The Polar Express

This movie takes me back to being a child and dreaming of the North Pole. I can only imagine being a child and waking up to a train picking me up in the middle of the night to see Santa on Christmas Eve. My favorite scene from the movie by far is when all the children are served hot chocolate on the train.

5. Home Alone

KEVIN!! If you didn't just say that in Kate McAllister’s voice, then you definitely need to watch this move. A young boy surviving in New York City alone while his entire family is on a vacation. I must say that Kevin is quite intelligent with all the little tricks he comes up with to scare off Marv and Harry.

6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

What can get any better then a Dr. Seuss themed Christmas movie? In the town of Whoville, all the who’s love Christmas, well except the Grinch. Throughout the movie, the cutest who of all, Cindy Lou Who, decides to become friends with the Grinch. Just one small act of love, changes the life of the person who hates Christmas the most.

7. Jack Frost

Jack Frost is one of my favorite Christmas movies. Although it is a sad one to watch, it teaches the lesson of loving one another.

8. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

No movie is quite like this one that tells the story of a unique reindeer named Rudolph. known for his bright red nose, Rudolph, the unlikely hero saves Christmas all due to his bright red nose.

9. A Christmas Story

This one is a classic. Ralphie’s obsession with getting a BB gun for Christmas turns into a lesson about not “shooting your eye out”.

10. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Clark Griswold and Christmas lights; enough said.

How Starting Your Journey Is Half Of The Battle

"You can start your journey any day at anytime."


Not that long ago, I wrote an article about a little phrase I heard on my friend's snapchat story. It got a tone of views and a lot of great feedback. And just in time for the beginning of the new school semester, he said something else that just kind of stuck with me.

He said that you can start your journey any day, at any time.

Okay so we've all heard this before but have any of us actually taken the time to put that saying into action? Well, quite recently I have. I used to be the type of person who waited until last minute to do everything, whether it was homework, a workout plan or whatever I wanted to accomplish. I used to be the type of person who said that at whatever time I'll start my homework and if it was a minute past that time I would have to wait to the start of the new hour....yes like the meme.

But now, ever since I heard that quote, it's been replaying in my head on a loop. Which is why I now just do things at the moment they're thought of and not a certain time. I decided that this is the semester, I don't wait until the last minute to do all of my work, and so far it's going well. I decided that this is the perfect time to get in shape, and not wait until the New Year, because I'm the skinniest most out of shape person that I know. I decided that instead of waiting until the new year to eat healthier that I'm going to do it now.

For a while I have wanted to get back into dance. I kept saying that I'll sign up for classes again when I finish school. But instead I decided to do it now, registered for a ballet class at school and signed up for ballroom dance, and it hands down has been one of the best decisions I have made.

Honestly it's been weird not having a set start date and time for certain things, but why would I put off doing something that I want to do? What I will say though, is that not procrastinating on homework has made these first couple of weeks of the semester fly by and seem like a breeze.

Just by letting go of the idea that every thing needs to have a set start date and time and a set date and time to end has made the pressure of things go away. By just starting my journey for whatever I'm doing right now, has increased my happiness and my overall productivity of what I'm doing.

So a little word of advice just go for and just do whatever you want to do right now.
