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
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
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.
