Holiday Movies To Watch

Enhance holiday feeling this winter
Holiday+Movies+To+Watch
Cleo Kilpatrick

Christmas is just around the corner, and with finals week coming to an end, what better way to unwind during break than cozying up on the couch with a hot cocoa and watching some of your favorite Christmas movies to spark the holiday spirit? The special thing about Christmas movies is that, whether it’s your 1st or 50th time watching it, the pure excitement and familiar nostalgia never change. While there are thousands of Christmas movies accessible throughout many different platforms to choose from, here are some of the best ones to reignite the holiday feeling. 

Some originals worthy of re-watching: The Grinch, Elf, The Santa Clause, Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Spirited, and A Christmas Prince (all 3!). If you’re looking for a good cringe-worthy holiday rom-com, you might be interested in Holidate, Falling for Christmas, and Christmas Without You. Esther Lee ‘27 recommends watching “The Nightmare Before Christmas”: “It’s a classic, and I watch it every year with my family. It’s like a tradition!” Jessica Atteberry ‘27 says that her favorite movie to get in the Christmas spirit is “8 Bit Christmas”. She describes it as “old and sentimental, especially to watch with your family.” It seems that Upper School students really value spending time with family during the holiday season, especially to watch Christmas movies!

With all the stress from this week’s heavy workload, it’s only right to give ourselves a break from all the commotion. Spend some time with your family and friends over the well-deserved holiday break, and watch a Christmas movie!
