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 in midwestern 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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11274

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
