The Christmas season is finally upon us. One thing that makes this season so glorious besides the decorations and presents on Christmas morning is all of the Christmas movies.

For most people, Christmas movies mean "Home Alone" and "The Santa Clause." But for others such as myself, this is the time when the OG Christmas movies make their rounds; the claymation movies.

Rankin-Bass is the mastermind behind the claymation stop-motion movies that we all grew up on, and now I'm here to tell you the top 5 of these types of movies.

"Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer"

The classic Christmas story we all know and love comes to life in this claymation story. Rudolph is mocked by his fellow reindeer and ends up with his new buddies Hermey, Yukon Cornelius, and even the Abominable Snowman. This is one movie you can't skip during Christmastime.

"Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town"

This story tells the background of the man himself, Santa Claus. Kris Kringle begins to transition into Mr.Christmas in this story and brings a little bit of warmth and love to viewers' hearts.

He has some bumps in the road when the mayor bans toys, but it all comes to a happy ending.

"Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey"

This movie is a classic almost everyone seems to forget about it. I even forgot about it until recently! This movie is an emotional one because Nestor is rendered an outcast because of his long ears and becomes basically depressed over it.

On his way to Bethlehem, he luckily finds his destiny. This is a Christmas movie that'll tug on your heartstrings.

"Rudolph's Shiny New Year"

This movie isn't technically a Christmas special, but it still resides in the holiday season as it prepares for a New Year. Rudolph is our beloved Christmas character, so anything he is in still makes it feel like Christmas time.

Baby New Year goes missing and it's up to Rudolph to find him and save the day. Anything that Rudolph does will warm our hearts.

"The Year Without A Santa Claus"

This is my personal favorite Christmas movie of all-time. This special entails different aspects such as singing, dancing, and a little bit of conflict.

Santa gets sicks and decides to cancel Christmas because many people no longer have very much Christmas spirit.

It's up to Jingle and Jangle to find that spirit in a town called Southtown but run into a bit of trouble when the Miser brothers get involved. It's a holiday special that's unlike any other.

If you haven't watched any of these movies, don't worry. You still have time before Christmas hits! Once school winds down and you get that well-deserved break, have a little claymation movie marathon and unwind.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
