6 Movies to Binge Watch For Christmas

6 Movies to Binge Watch For Christmas

You have until December 25th. Ready, Set, Go!

With Christmas around the corner and festivity running high, I wanted to write something about Christmas but couldn't think of what exactly to write about, mostly because there were so many topics. Should I write a remix of "Twelve Days of Christmas?" Should I list the ten amazing gifts for your secret Santa? After some thought, it all came down to what I love and what I will be left doing on Christmas-- binge watching Christmas movies. So, here's the list; feel free to hop in anytime and join this lonely soul on Christmas.

1. The Polar Express

The most conventional Christmas movie of all time, Polar Express is by far my childhood favorite. I remember watching this movie for the first time when I was six or seven in Korea, and although I had no idea what the movie was about since I couldn't understand English back then, the thought of a train riding children to a winter wonderland on Christmas day was all too magical to me. I guess that's the reason why the movie is still loved by so many people to this day.

2. Edward Scissorhands

Many people associate Tim Burton's movies with Halloween, but Edward Scissorhands is actually a heartwarming Christmas movie. The movie centers around a grandma's narrative as she tells her grandchildren why it snows on Christmas. With Johnny Depp starring as the awkward but cute Scissorhands, this movie is a must watch if you are looking for some atypical romance movie or something Tim Burton on Christmas.

3. Music and Lyrics

This movie is not really a Christmas movie, but rather a movie that I enjoy watching on Christmas. "Music and Lyrics" came out quite a while ago, but the main soundtrack in the film "Way Back Into Love" is still my number one on my Spotify Christmas playlist. If you're all about romantic Christmas movies or looking for some healing movie with some amazing soundtracks, "Music and Lyrics" will be a perfect movie for you on Christmas day.

4. Home Alone

The first movie of the Home Alone Series is one of my favorite movies because, I mean, who can resist watching the cute little Macaulay Culkin? Although the movie is targeted towards kids, it is loved up by people of all ages worldwide. If you are up for some light-hearted and fun mischief, this movie will be the perfect one for you to watch this Christmas.

5. Bridget Jones's Diary

Sometimes it's really hard to believe that fifteen years have passed since this movie came out. The two juxtaposing and dysfunctional characters played by Renée Zellweger and Collin Firth add to the comic element of the entire movie, making it utterly hilarious to watch. An amalgamation of passionate romance, light comedy, and heartwarming storyline, "Bridget Jones's Diary" will once again enlighten my Christmas day.

6. A Christmas Carol

When I first watched "A Christmas Carol," a 2009 adaptation of the infamous novel written by Charles Dickens, I was more engrossed with the amazing computer graphics than the plotline itself. However, when I rewatched the movie a couple of days ago, I realized how significant it was as it contained many meaningful life lessons that we tend to gloss over most of the times. With Jim Carrey as Scrooge, meet the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come to delve into Scrooge's past.

Merry Christmas!

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
