Snuggle up with these holiday classics
The Holiday season has roared in this year with some of the earliest – and heaviest – snowfall on record.
This holiday break, if the weather outside stays frightful, you now have something to do, like sit back, relax, and watch some Christmas Movies as you snuggle up by a fire in the warmth of your own home.
This year, for the Knight Times Holiday Issue, I surveyed KHS seniors to determine what their favorite holiday movies were. And here are the results. Is your favorite in the top five?
The Polar Express
This movie, my personal favorite, brings in some child mastalgia that everyone should experience at least once in their life. It is about a young boy, who has losing the Christmas spirit, until The Polar Express comes and invites him on board to find the Christmas spirit again and visit the big man himself, Santa. See above for the trailer.
This movie, which I forgot to mention on the survey (sorry guys), is a great movie that really brings in the humor of the season. It is about a elf, who finds out that his dad lives in the city of New York. He goes out to find him, and brings around his goofy Christmas spirit with him, to meet his stern dad.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Grinch Stole Christmas is a classic movie that dates back to the the 60s when a small cartoon tv show hit the television screens. It became a hit, and is still played today at least once a year. In 2000, it became a good hit when Jim Carrey took on the role of the Grinch, in a big screen debut. This movie got poor reviews, but still hits the hearts of many people during the holiday season.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a funny comedy featuring Chevy Chase, which brings the humor and laughs in a big way. This movie is still getting played in select theaters around Ohio, it hit that hard with the fans. This movie will bring a smile to people’s faces as you watch the train wreck of a Christmas Vacation.
A Christmas Story
This movie is a story that all ages will love, it will make you smile, laugh, and zip back to a simpler age, where all kids wanted was a BB gun for christmas, instead of the new generation of iphones. Watch it as you watch Ralphie get into trouble during the Christmas season. This is a must see for all ages!
If you need more movies to watch, here some other holiday classics recommended by the seniors: Home Alone, Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, and The Santa Clause.
