Your New Favorite Holiday Movies

Your New Favorite Holiday Movies

8 holidays. 8 perfect movies.

This past July 4th, I realized that my family likes to watch certain movies for almost every holiday. There's something about coming together and making time to watch the same, classic movies year after year. Here's a list of movies that you may not have thought to watch during the holidays, but are sure to become your new favorites!

1. Valentine's Day - The Lakehouse

This is a suspenseful and intriguing romance movie in which a super significant event happens to take place on Valentine's Day. Plus, it has Sandra Bullock in it. How can you not like Sandra Bullock?

2. St. Patrick's Day - The Fugitive

So, the only reason I have for watching this on St. Patrick's Day is because there is a St. Patty's Day parade in the movie. Even if crime thriller movies aren't your thing, at least skip to this scene where you get to see Harrison Ford in a leprechaun hat.

3. Mother's Day - The Blind Side

I know, this is another Sandra Bullock movie - sue me. But it's definitely one of those heartwarming, "feel good" movies that is perfect to watch on Mother's Day.

4. Father's Day - Enchanted

This is another great family movie that showcases a really cute relationship between Patrick Dempsey's character and his daughter.

5. The Fourth of July/Independence Day - The Patriot

I don't want to spoil anything about this movie for those who haven't seen it, but I'll say that it's guaranteed to make you cry at least 15 times.

6. Halloween - A Cinderella Story

This movie isn't about Halloween at all, but it has a Halloween dance in it - that's good enough for me! A Cinderella Story is literally the #GOAT, and if you've never seen it, I'm begging you to rent it this Halloween.

7. Thanksgiving Day - Soul Surfer

This movie isn't focused on a holiday either, but it does focus on the importance of family and remind you of everything that you have to be thankful for. There's a Thanksgiving dinner scene in the movie so that kind of counts, right?

8. Christmas Day - It's A Wonderful Life

Words can't describe how beautiful this movie is. All I need to say is that, if you want to get in the Christmas spirit, you need to put It's A Wonderful Life on your list of movies to watch this Christmas. Lucky for you, Christmas in July gives you an excuse to watch it right now!

The End Of The Semester As Told By Todd Chrisley

Because we're all a little dramatic like Todd sometimes.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
