11 Movies To Watch This Holiday Season

From Elf quotes to fuzzy little monsters, these movies will help you pass the time until the big day you've been waiting for. Just make sure you don't turn into a Grinch while waiting for it to arrive. Instead, just sit back, relax, and drink a nice big cup of "hot, hot, hot. hot cho-co-late!" - Polar Express.

1. Home Alone.

These movies always made me think about why his parents continuously left him home alone year after year, even though this kept happening. Fortunately, this kid has an endless pit of ideas that keep him safe each and every year.

2. Elf.

Can't we all be as excited as Buddy is when we see Santa? Or at least know that Christmas is slowly approaching? Well, maybe we don't have to be as excited as Buddy is, but we can at least show a little bit of excitement and enthusiasm on the approaching days and not just the day of.

3. Bad Santa.

Remember, just because you're a mall Santa, doesn't mean you're immediately going to go on the nice list. You need to play the part as well, unlike Mr. Thorton here.

5. The Polar Express.

Does the bell still ring for you? If it doesn't I suggest taking some time to watch this movie, so you'll start to "truly believe".

6. Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

"Then one foggy Christmas eve, Santa came to say. Rudolf with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" - Gene Autry

7. The Santa Clause.

Unless you want to end up being Santa Claus like Tim Burton. Just let that noise you hear on your roof late on Christmas eve be. Cause if you don't, you'll be in for a nice surprise.

8. A Christmas Story.

Remember when mom always said "You'll shoot your eye out" if you get that bb-gun? Well, how do we know if that'll happen if we don't get it?

9. Eight Crazy Nights.

"Hanukkah is the festival of lights, instead of one day of presents we get eight crazy nights" - Adam Sandler. We have to remember that this holiday season isn't just about Christmas. Even though there are tons of movies leaning that way, Adam Sandler felt like a movie about Hanukkah was very much needed.

10. Unaccompanied minors.

For those of you who travel to other parts of your family during the holidays, you've probably experienced this once or twice. Well, maybe not to the extent of these guys, but you know what I mean.

11. Dr. Seuss's: How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

"Maybe Christmas." the Grinch thought "doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas" ...perhaps... "means a little bit more" - Dr. Seuss. Enjoy your holiday season, be with family and friends, and don't be a Grinch.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
