Five Festive Films


Carmon Williams

During the holidays we all want to cuddle up to a good movie and drink a warm cup of hot chocolate. Good movies aren’t hard to find but these are the best of the best. You won’t regret watching them.

1)How The Grinch Stole Christmas: This movie is one of the original Christmas classics. It tells a story about how an ugly, green and mean creature can find happiness and has a big heart. No matter how old you are this movie will not do you wrong.

2)A Charlie Brown Christmas: Out of all the Christmas movies out there, this one is on the top of the tree. After a young boy, Charlie Brown, chooses the smallest and most messed up tree out of all the beautiful big ones, he figures out the true meaning of Christmas. He then shares it with all his friends and they decorate the tiny tree all together. 

3)Home Alone: No matter what time of year, this movie is a great choice to watch. It has a lot of comedy and is good if you want a laugh but it also has a very heartfelt meaning. This movie shows that family is important and you will always need them. 

4)A Christmas Story: If you like classics, then this movie is perfect for you. It’s about a dysfunctional family trying to get along for the holidays. Behind the comedy shows the true reality of life. 

5)Polar Express: The Polar Express has many wonderful messages. The story focuses on a boy who is confused on whether or not he should believe in Santa because his family doesn’t. He ends up having faith in Santa because of the long and rough journey on the Polar Express.
