12 Christmas Moments that Christmas Movies Got Right
Deseret News Media & Books

Christmas movies range from the heart felt Hallmarks to classics made in the 1970s to holiday comedies.

A Christmas Story, A Christmas Vacation, and Christmas with the Kranks are a few of my favorite Christmas movies and found moments in each that are pretty relatable. Here are 12 of them.

1. "I can't put my arms down!"

Winters can be brutally cold in the northeast which means you have to bundle up. We can thank the iconic "I can't put my arms down!" in A Christmas Story. It takes us back down memory lane to when we were kids where we were forced to wear those horrible puffy winter suits.

2. Nature's slip and slide

Yeah, I'll admit it, ice has gotten the better of me multiple times. You're lying if you said it hasn't and I may be gullible, but no, I'm not going to believe you.

3. Thank god, we finally found the tree

Finding the Christmas Tree

Let's face it, finding the tree is a ton of fun but it can get cold. By the end, when you once thought you'd never find that perfect tree for the year, you've done it. Congratulations! Cut that tree down and go put it up!

4. Let the branches go

Okay, so maybe it's not as dramatized as it was with the Griswolds, but nonetheless it's still pretty bad. We've done it multiple times in my family and thankfully, no windows were broken...yet.

5. You get sap! And you get sap! And you get sap!


Trees are sappy. Get use to it. Accept it. Love it. Because it's not going anywhere!

6. Hey, what's that in the tr--?

We've all had that Christmas where we accidentally brought too much nature into the house.

7. Trees are a beast in their own

Something always goes wrong with the tree. The star is crooked, the tree falls over, cats attack it. You just have to make the most of it.

8. Risking your life on the roof for Frosty

Okay, maybe it's not exactly a Frosty decoration you're putting on your roof like the Kranks but you probably have something and you're probably risking your life to put them up.

9. Some Santas are scary.

Yes, when I was little, I cried when I visited a Santa. Everyone has at least once, yes, even you.

10. Stress snowballs

Stress. It's inevitable. There's too much to do and not enough time to do it. You just have to keep on, keeping on.

11. The dreaded pink bunny suit

Ralphie and the Pink Bunny Suit

Everyone has that dreaded pink bunny suit. No, it may not literally be a bunny suit but it's always something. We can't help it and don't even try to deny it.

12. And that's a wrap

Now that the stress and the hustle and bustle have come and gone, sit back and just relax until the New Year. You guys deserve it. And yes, that pun was most definitely intended.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
