The holiday season is just around the corner, and we all know it's the best time of year. Freeform's annual "25 Days of Christmas" is always something I look forward to.

However, the Christmas movie lineup seems to be lacking a ton of the holiday classics. How can I get through December without seeing "Home Alone"? Or "Elf"? Or even "A Charlie Brown Christmas"?

Despite the lack of my favorite films, I will always be loyal to Freeform and will still be watching, of course. How else will I get into the holiday spirit? The holidays just wouldn't be the same without these iconic Christmas films, and Freeform should put them on their list ASAP.

1. "Home Alone"

Freeform may be playing the sequels to "Home Alone", but it's not the same without the original classic. Watching Kevin take down the burglars with Christmas ornaments and other festive decorations is the best part of this movie.

2. "Snow Day"

This 2000 film had every kid wishing their snow days were like Natalie's. Her success in plowing the snow back onto the streets in order to get two days off of school definitely had me thinking about doing the same thing. Also, seeing a young Josh Peck is always a plus. Anything can happen on a snow day!

3. "Elf"

This movie is literally the epitome of the holiday season. It's everyone's favorite movie, and usually Freeform has it playing on repeat, but this year it didn't make the lineup! Don't forget that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

4. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"

The Griswold family's Christmas plans going wrong is always sure to give you a laugh. It reminds us that not everything goes as planned, especially when your family is involved!

5. "The Polar Express"

What kid didn't want to be woken up in the middle of the night by a magical train that takes you to the North Pole? This movie is sure to bring out your inner kid and shows you to never stop believing in the spirit of Christmas. It's essential to watch it during the holiday season.

6. "A Christmas Story"

TNT does their annual "24 Hours of A Christmas Story" where they play this classic 12 times in a row, but Freeform would be 10 times better if they added it to their list. This movie is full of iconic moments and hilarious jokes, all surrounding the wonderful holiday of Christmas. Don't shoot your eye out!

7. "Frosty the Snowman"

A literal ICON of the holiday season. How can you even think about snow and the holidays without the image of Frosty? It's impossible not to tear up when Frosty melts, but Santa comes through with that magic and makes Karen's holiday one to remember.

8. "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"

The classic holiday claymation movies are my personal favorite. What's the holiday season without Rudolph, Hermey, and the island of misfit toys?

9. "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

What's the holiday season without Charlie Brown? The iconic Charlie Brown Christmas tree is one of my favorite decorations I have in my house. The soundtrack from this film is sure to get you into the holiday spirit.

10. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (1966)

Freeform is playing the 2000 version of this film, but I've always liked the cartoon better. Did Jim Carrey as the Grinch scare anyone else as a kid?

11. "Love, Actually"

This beautiful film reminds us that we're all connected by love, and it's important to remember that during the holiday season. There's no better time to fall in love than during the holidays!

12. "Eloise at Christmastime"

This was the Christmas movie of my childhood. I adored Eloise and her crazy antics, and I was always wishing I could have a life like hers. Christmastime at the plaza was something that seemed so magical.

13. "Jack Frost"

This may be the saddest movie EVER, but it is such a touching story. A young boy's father passes away and comes back to him in the form of a snowman named Jack Frost. It's a beautiful Christmas story that reminds us of love and family.

Freeform always has the best films premiering during the holiday season, but this year they're definitely missing some of the classics! Don't worry, that won't stop me from watching them. Happy Holidays!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
