The 10 Best Holiday Films

The list could go on forever, but here are my top 10.

The 10 Best Holiday Films

The holidays are the best of times, and the worst of times. Every channel is constantly playing the greatest holiday movies, so you never have a shortage. Here are 10 of my favorite holiday movies:

1. "Love Actually"

This is my go-to, all-time favorite holiday flick. It never fails to make me laugh and cry, and laugh some more.

2. "Elf"

A classic. It's a tradition in my household, and I watch this movie like 15 times in 20 days.

3. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (Jim Carrey version)

Jim Carrey is hilarious in this movie and has been one of my favorites since I was a kid.

4. "The Holiday"

My mom and I love this one; it's so cute and such a sweet story. Also, Cameron Diaz is all of us when we are stressed during the holidays.

5. "A Christmas Story"

This is also a movie tradition in my family. One year, my sisters even re-created the scene where Ralphie and Randy stuffed their faces in food, snorted like pigs, and screamed "Momma's little piggies."

6. "Christmas Vacation"

The Griswold's are all of us. Classic.

7. "Home Alone" (1 and 2)

Are you even human if you don't watch these on repeat throughout the holidays??

8. "The Polar Express"

This is just some of the best advice. Such a beautiful movie.

9. "Miracle on 34th Street"

This is one of the first Christmas movies I remember watching. It's always been a favorite for my family.

10. "It's a Wonderful Life"

I watch this every year with my mom - another timeless movie that makes me feel like it's officially the holidays.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
