9 Of My Favorite Holiday Movies

One of the things that always puts me into the holiday spirit is Christmas movies. It seems that this time of year all I watch is movies, whether it be while I'm doing homework, doing puzzles, or anything at all really, I just always seem to be watching holiday themed movies. The holidays just aren't the holidays without all of the movies I watch while I'm running around acting as if I'm not losing my mind over all of the things I have left to do before Christmas. These are some of the Christmas movies that I tend to like, maybe you will like them too.

1. The Ultimate Christmas Present

So I still am in love with this Disney movie, what can I say? I've always loved it ever since I was young. It just gives me happy feelings and I typically watch it at least once every holiday season. It's just a fun movie for me to watch.

2. Elf

Sometimes you just need to have some comedy with your holiday movies. I don't know what else to say besides I find this movie hilarious, and I absolutely love it. Each time I watch this movie, I swear I find something else or catch another new joke from it.

3. How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The grinch is another great Christmas movie. There isn't a year where I remember not watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

4. Four Christmases

Four Christmases is a funny Christmas movie, it's one of those movies that just makes me laugh. If you haven't ever watched it, you should because I think most people would find this movie funny.

5. Home Alone

One of the classics, what can I say, it's funny. It's just one of those movies that you relate to Christmas time.

6. Charlie Brown Christmas

I don't know what it is about Charlie Brown, but I always love all of the Charlie Brown shows, at least the Thanksgiving and Christmas ones. I guess it's just that inner child in me.

7. The Polar Express

This movie is one that I tend to find more cute than anything, I think. I don't know what else it would be that makes me love this movie so much. That, and I am always watching little kids and seeing their reactions to movies like this always make the movie much more enjoyable.

8. The Santa Claus

When I was younger, I believe, these movies were just coming out. It wasn't something I liked at first, but as years went on this series of movies began to grow on me more. Sometimes when you just need a good Christmas movie, this movie can be it.

9. Any Hallmark Movies

Hallmark is like the mother of all Christmas movies. Always so dramatic, always such happy endings. It always puts me in such a cheery mood, the one time I enjoy wrapping Christmas presents is when I am watching a Hallmark movie. There's just something about Hallmark movies that absolutely makes me love them.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
