11 holiday movies to raise your spirits

This time of year is stressful, not to mention a scary election having just passed. So, instead of dwell on the what could be in the next four years. Let’s enjoy some turkey, mistletoe, and candy canes!

1. “Elf”
I mean let’s be honest, it’s Will Ferrell’s best movie. There’s nothing better than candy canes, candy corn and syrup. For all of you who need something sweet right now, here ya go.

2. “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”
Anything Charlie brown is a mood changer. Whether its the disregard for adults or the massive amount of turkey, its a real win!

3. “It’s a Wonderful Life”
If you want the moon, George Bailey will tie a lasso around it and pull it down for you. This movie will truly make you think about all the things you should be grateful for. I promise there’s at least one thing if you look hard enough!

4. “A Charlie Brown Christmas”
Do I need to repeat myself? Linus, Charlie, and Lucy oh my! Bring it on, Charlie. We’re waiting.

5. “Polar Express”
All aboard for some truly fantastic hot cocoa, Tom Hanks, and love of Santa Claus (people have been trying to tell me for years, but I know Santa is real). I believe, and so should you!

6. “Home Alone”
YES! We’ve all been waiting, so whether all your friends and family have ditched you or you are surrounded by loved ones, sit down and have a laugh

7. “A Christmas Story”
How about we all stick our tongues to frozen poles and watch this flick. While we are at it jump into your bunny onesie and pop some corn.

8. “Love Actually”
I had to throw in a few for my ladies. Nothing will melt your heart like this flick in the winter.

9. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
There are two versions, but let’s be real: anything with Jim Carey beats anything without him.

10. “The Holiday”
Jude. Law.

11. “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”
Not a movie, but…WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOREVER!!! So go watch it Nov. 25!!!

Happy holidays Duhawks!
