We always have our classic Christmas favorites like Rudolph, Frosty, and even Charlie Brown's Christmas, but sometimes we forget some of the other amazing movies we can watch. Some movies we've grown up with and others you may have never heard of, but here is a list of 8 of my favorite movies I sometimes forget about watching during the holidays.

1. Home Alone

A true classic about a family vacation gone wrong when the youngest child Kevin is left to fend for himself in their Chicago home. Not only does he battle the struggles of being 8 and alone, but must also protect his house from two bumbling burglars, "The Wet Bandits." Featuring one of my childhood favorite actors Macaulay Culkin, John Hughes and Chris Columbus bring to life an amazing Christmas favorite.


2. A Year Without a Santa Claus

My all time favorite Christmas movie describes the story of the year Santa catches a cold and decides to cancel Christmas. With the help of Mrs. Claus and some elves they go off to convince Santa that he is still loved by many and continue his yearly trip. Stop Motion animated with two songs from Heat Miser and Snow Miser the two sons of mother nature comes a 1974 classic from the same creators of your beloved favorites Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman.


3. White Christmas

With actors Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen comes my familys Christmas-day tradition, White Christmas. Two ex-WWII vets, Bob and Phil set out to be a top singing and dancing act while pairing with two sisters Betty and Judy. With intentions of perfoming a Christmas show the group heads to a Vermont Lodge to help former General Waverly from his failing business.


4. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey's classic retaling of Dr. Suess's character the Grinch documents revenge seeking plans to ruin the joy of christmas for the Whos. Although, an unlikely pairing, a small who, Cindy Lo trys to befreind the green creature and show him the importance of christmas. Not exactly a moive anyone would forget, but one we forget to watch during the spirit of the holidays.


5. Unaccompained Minors

A comedic chrsitmas film to remind us of our least favorite part of the holidays, traveling comes Unaccpmpained Minors. A group of ragtag minors bond over a snowed inmidwestern airport as they try to find anyway to entertain themselves in the airport. Escaping the UM room and causing trouble with the christmas hating owner Oliver comes one of my favorites a movie unknown and underappreciated.


6. The Nightmare Before Christmas

TIm Burton's classic is often questioned on when it's the right time to watch such a film Halloween or Christmas, being within the title I say Chrsitmas. Adding a beautifully dark and bizzare twist to the Christmas season comes catchy songs as Jack Skellington stumbles upon Christmas Town. With pure fascination he trys to convince Halloween town to put on thier own christmas.


7. The Polar Express

With catchy songs and names like Tom Hanks and Josh Hutcherson comes the Polar Express. A young boy boards a midnight train to the North Pole and Santa's home, embarking on a journey of self-discovery explaining the importance of "believing."


8. The Santa Clause

A movie that could never completely be forgotten, The Santa Claus, the first in a holiday trilogy, explains how Santa is really "chosen." Tim Allen's character Scott, mistakenly scares Santa off his roof leading to his death and Scott is now stuck delivering the rest of the gifts to the children of the world. Eventually leading to his whole life being flipped upside down as Scott now has to take on the role of Santa Claus.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
