The Top 10 Christmas Movies To Watch This, And Every, Holiday Season

Now that the semester is officially over, we're able to actually sit back and enjoy the holidays for a bit. For my family, that means cozying up with a dangerous amount of cookies and hot cocoa in our living room and turning on the projector to watch nothing but Christmas movies every night.

Personally, I am of the belief that every movie can be a Christmas movie if you try hard enough, so from one movie loving family to another, here are the top ten Christmas movies to watch this season.

10. "The Shop Around the Corner"

I think James Stewart was just made for Christmas movies, because "The Shop Around The Corner" is absolutely lovely.

9. "The Christmas Chronicles" (1 and 2)

Kurt Russell as Santa Claus with a musical number. That's all I'm saying.

8. "Anna and the Apocalypse"

Zombies? Christmas? A musical? The main character has the same name as me?? What more could you want out of a Christmas movie?

7. Any Harry Potter movie

Wintertime is the best time to have a Harry Potter movie marathon. I don't make the rules here.

6. "The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"

Father Christmas makes a three minute appearance, so it technically counts as a Christmas movie

5. "Rise of the Guardians"

If no one else is going to say it, then I will: we were all in love with Jack Frost when this movie came out and guess what? Some of us still are.

4. "The Santa Clause"

I'll be honest, I watch this movie even when it's not December.

3. Any Rankin-Bass Christmas Special

While technically, these aren't movies, they never fail to put someone in the Christmas spirit.

2. "It's A Wonderful Life"

It's a classic movie with a great message, and if you don't tear up when Harry Bailey calls his brother "the richest man in town," then we just can't be friends.

1. "Die Hard"

Arguably one of the best Christmas movies, period. And for those of you who say it's not a Christmas movie – the whole thing takes place at a Christmas party!

So, go make yourself a cup of cocoa and turn the TV on! Merry Christmas!

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
