Celebrating Christmas As Told By Your Favorite Christmas Movies

Favorite Holiday Traditions


Christmas time is one of the best times of the year because it is full of joy and giving. It is a time for pretty lights, white snow, holiday songs and giving and getting presents. Here are a couple of Christmas traditions as told by some of our favorite Christmas movies.

Looking for the perfect presents for people

Home Alone


There is stress and joy that comes with getting presents. The stress is the cost and getting something that you know the other person would like. The joy is the fun in buying people you love presents and coming up with ideas that people will love.

Struggling to wrap the presents

Wrapping the presents can be fun but also a hassle especially if you aren't really good at wrapping. As long as the present is covered and it has a name to who it belongs to, you're good because it is the thought that counts.

Looking for the perfect tree that will fit inside the house

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation


Getting a Christmas tree is a very fun tradition. It can be a struggle to find a tree that will fit into the house. Once the tree is in the house and the 1,000 of ornaments you have are on, your tree will light up the house.

Watching all of the classic Christmas movies

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer


All of the classic movies are a must during Christmas time. The classic movies like Charlie Brown, the Grinch and Rudolph. Get some popcorn and some candy canes and watch your favorite classics.

Putting up Christmas Lights

Putting up Christmas lights can be a chore but the way the house looks makes the house look very festive. Hopefully there aren't any bulbs that are out and please do not fall of the roof. Be careful but make your house shine with Christmas spirit.

Listening to Christmas music



During the month of December is the time to get your Christmas music out and listen away. It gets you in the holiday mood and is a perfect thing to listen to when making Christmas cookies or wrapping presents.

Anytime you think of hot chocolate, the song from polar express has most likely gotten in your head. Making Christmas cookies and drinking hot chocolate is a delicious Christmas tradition.

Realizing you have many Christmas parties to go to



During Christmas there are a lot of different parties to go to. Friends and family are having their parties that you want to attend and so it is time to get your schedule ready.

Getting ready for all the Christmas parties

How the Grinch Stole Christmas


Trying to find your outfit for all the Christmas parties and so you try on different outfits to see what you like best. Then there is also picking which outfits you are going to wear different days of your Christmas parties.

Going sledding and snowball fighting



Hopefully you will have a White Christmas so then you can go sledding, snowball fighting and making snow angels. Winter can be cold and miserable sometimes but it also can be fun and pretty.

Opening your Christmas presents on Christmas morning

The Nightmare Before Christmas


Everyone gets excited to open presents and see people open the presents they got them. It is a fun time of getting and giving, that also allows you to spend time with your family and friends.

Enjoy all of your Christmas traditions and check out these Holiday movies. Remember to spend time with friends and family because that is an important part of the Holidays. Enjoy the music and the lights. Have a Merry Christmas!

'That 70's Show' Christmas Episodes, Ranked

Holiday classics ranked for your bingewatch convenience.


Last week, I ranked The Office's Christmas episodes, so this week I'm going to rank the episodes from That 70's Show, my favorite show as a teenager. Still with the highest number being the best because of how this website works.

1. Winter (Season 7)

The show peaked in seasons 5 & 6, so while this episode has some great moments, it just doesn't measure up to the others on this list. Not to mention the Jackie & Hyde drama was a real downer.

2. The Best Christmas Ever (Season 1)

The first season's Christmas episode also has some classic moments, but the comedy just wasn't as strong in the earlier seasons.

3. Hyde's Christmas Rager (Season 3)

The Christmas party at Hyde's place was great, however, the Jackie & Donna plot feels a little lacking compared to some of the other Christmas episode plots.

4. An Eric Foreman Christmas (Season 4)

I tend to skip season 4 because Eric and Donna's breakup was hard on me, but this is a really good Christmas episode. Not to mention, Kelso's Christmas special is everything.

5. Christmas (Season 6)

This episode has everything. Red as Santa, Jackie and Hyde being adorable, the school dance, Eric finally being popular, Donna's bacon, and Fez with the bullies. And the TNT scene. Everything a Christmas special should be.

So there you go. Enjoy your holiday bingewatch!

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
