“Keep the change, ya filthy animal!” An iconic quote from the classic Christmas film, Home Alone. It is time to kick ofthe holiday season right with some of your favorite Christmas movies. December is here and it is time for the holiday cheer on television.  

“I like a Christmas Story because I like the narration of a little kid’s point of view coming from an adult, and I love the sarcasm,” Hunter Moore (’24) said.  

“I love Home Alone,” Tyler Williams (’23) said. “I enjoy Home Alone because it’s funny,” Ryan Cruzado (’22) said. “I feel like Home Alone is my favorite just because it’s a super original Christmas movie and it’s just really funny,” Silas Mendoza (’23) said. 

Home Alone is clearly a fan favorite and loved by most, but it is not the only great movie made for the holidays. Some other iconic Holiday movies include: The Grinch, The Polar Express, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Christmas with the Kranks, or even the classic movie Elf. 

Another form of popular entertainment during the holidays is something to listen to while setting up your decorations or opening your gifts on Christmas Day. Some holiday songs include favorites such as “Jingle Bells,” “Silver Bells,” or even “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.”  

Everybody has their preference for their favorite festive film, whether it is Snow globe or The Grinch. So, I hope you had a great Christmas this past December!
