While Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, there is something magical about the Christmas season. Whether you celebrate the holiday or not (I personally don’t), I still like to drink hot chocolate, go ice skating, and of course, watch magical movies that put me in a good mood. Everyone has their favorites, below is a mix of old and new classics, the best of both worlds!
- Love Actually
This is the best romantic comedy of all time. The multiple plot lines and the attachment to every single character make this movie a must-see. It will make you feel amazing and definitely put you in a jolly mood.
- Polar Express
I grew up watching this movie as a child, so it definitely has sentimental value. That being said, watching it now that I am older makes me laugh and reminisce about my childhood.
- It’s A Wonderful Life
If you don’t like old movies, maybe skip this one. However, the black and white makes me feel transported into a faraway world and the ending is sure to make up for any bias you may have against old movies.
- While You Were Sleeping
I love Sandra Bullock, so anything she is in I am going to support. She is funny and a little wacky in this movie, and it does have a happy ending. This is another hidden classic that I make sure to watch every year.
- The Holiday
This movie has a house swap, so you know it is going to be good. It is the perfect ‘chick flick’ as this change in environment is what the ladies needed to find love.
