Best Studio Ghibli Films To Keep You Warm Until Christmas

Thanksgiving has passed, and now we must start prepping for Christmas. It's time to venture away from Disney and Pixar, and appreciate the world of Japanese animated films.Whether you need a movie to keep your spirits up during finals week or get into the cozy feeling that comes with Christmas, you need to look no further than this collection of Studio Ghibli films:

1. "My Neighbour Totoro"

This is, without a question, the coziest movie in all of cinema history. Whether you have a love of all things whimsical, sibling bonds, or fluffy grey cats, this is the movie for you!

2. "Spirited Away"

This movie will either make you want to go on an adventure immediately or fly to Japan and go to a bath house.

3. "Whisper of the Heart"

Step one: Watch this movie. Step two: Cry about your non-existent love life. Step three: Drown yourself in chocolate. Step four: Repeat.

4. "Grave of the Fireflies"

Warning: If you have a sibling you miss, this is probably not the movie for you. (Unless swimming in a pool of tears sounds like a fun activity to you!)

5. "Howl’s Moving Castle"

Something to keep in mind while watching this movie: Howl is a fictional character, but it’s acceptable to OK to crush on him.

6. "Kiki’s Delivery Service"

Reasons to watch this film: bakeries, witches, cats. Need I say more?

7. "From Up on Poppy Hill"

There’s arguably no fantasy, action, or adventure in this one. But it wins in its simplicity. This sweet film is guaranteed to charm you in the most surprising ways.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
