Holiday Movies

The holidays are known for many things, such as snow, Christmas break, and the
wonderful movies that come with it. Even if you don’t really enjoy the holidays, you have probably seen at least one iconic Christmas movie. However, not every person has the same taste in movies.
If the holidays remind you of love, as they do for junior Bridget Stevenson, the movie
‘Love Actually’ might be for you. Stevenson said, “‘Love Actually’ reminds me so much of home and the cast is amazing. I always watch it. It really gets me in the holiday spirit.” With all the different story lines that keep you on the edge of your seat, the movie will have you smiling and crying.
In case you like crying from laughter, Elf is a classic. With Will Ferrel as Buddy and
being one of the most watched Christmas movie in the U.S., you’re bound to love the movie.
Junior Morgan Hall said “The movie has everything you want in a Christmas comedy. Some romance, heartbreak, and love are all you need for some good Christmas movie.”
But if you just want a Christmas movie to watch, junior Grace Gerding suggests ‘It’s A
Wonderful Life’. The movie is a classic from 1946, where George Bailey meets his guardian angel. Gerding said, “It’s the only holiday movie I’ll watch. I don’t know why I like it so much. It’s just always been a favorite of mine.”
The holidays are a time for joy and gifts, so make sure to treat yourself by watching
movies with your friends.
