A Lunachick Holiday: Holiday movies for you





Hey Lunachicks! In my recent posts, I’ve talked a lot about how difficult the holidays can be for some people. With that being said, I want to bring all you lovely Lunachicks some ways to make this Holiday season more cheerful. Every week from now until the end of December, I will present you with ideas to brighten up your holiday season. This series will be called “A Lunachick Holiday” series. I hope to make this a tradition that I can carry on in years to come! To kick things off, here is a list of movies that I love to enjoy during the holidays. If you haven’t seen any of them, I suggest you do so! Some can even be found on Netflix :) Enjoy!

  
1.     Home Alone

Home alone is a classic that most of us have seen at some time in our lives. It was written by John Hughes, directed by Chris Colombus, and released in 1990. For all you 90s kids out there, this one is for you! Starring Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern, the film centers around a little boy who is left home alone during the holidays while his family goes on vacation. He is left with the task of protecting his home from a couple of pesky burglars and he makes some friends along the way. If you you enjoy the 90s blockbuster feel, you’ll love Home Alone.

2.       It’s a Wonderful life



Directed by Frank Capra and starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, this film was released in 1946. It’s a wonderful life tells the story of a businessman, guided by a guardian angel, who gets the opportunity to see what life would have been like if he never existed. If you’re looking for all of the classic Christmas feels, this is the film for you.

3.       The Best Man Holiday



Ugh. What to say about this film. Released in 2013 and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the film is a second to “The Best Man”. College friends reunite after 15 years of living their own lives and conflict ensues, threatening to ruin the reunion altogether. However, tragedy unites the group. If you want to cry, watch this movie. It is heart breaking, moving, and tells the story of the bonds of friendship. Definitely one of my favorites.

4.       Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas


If you haven’t seen this Jim Carrey favorite, what have you been doing since 2000? This film tells the story of an outcast of the town called Whoville. He makes every attempt to destroy Christmas for the Whos, but in the end is the one who ends up anointed by the Christmas spirit. It is the perfect holiday movie and Jim Carrey plays the hell out of this role.

5.       Elf



Are you looking to laugh your head off? Watch this film! Will Farrel plays a man who was raised as an elf in the North Pole. As an adult, he is sent home to figure out who he really is and comedy follows! Elf was released in 2003, directed by Jon Favreau, and written by David Berenbaum.

6.       Miracle on 34th St.



Now, I’m a 90s kid so I’m talking about the 1994 version here (sorry old school folk!). Starring Mara Wilson aka the best darn kid actress of the 90s!, the film tells the story of a woman who does not believe in Santa clause, a girl who wants to believe but has her doubts, a man who loves the two of them regardless, and another man (Kriss Kringle played by Richard Attenborough) who does everything in his power to make a believer out of all of New York. Again, for the Christmas feels, watch this film.

7.       Love Actually



Who says falling in love is impossible? In this 2003 film directed and written by Richard Curtis, love is in the air all throughout the holiday season and all over London. If you’re looking for a holiday love story, this is a sweet one to watch. You get about 6 or 7 different love stories all wrapped up in one film. What’s the film about? Love, actually. Haha, like what I did there?

8.       The Family Man



Set over the holiday season, a successful investment broker gets mixed up with an angel of sorts and wakes up to find what his life would have been like if he chose the family over the career. Although he resists at first, he learns to love his life as a Family Man. The movie stars Nicholas Cage and Tea Leoni, was directed by Brett Ratner, was written by David Diamond and David Weissman, and was released in 2000.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I look forward to sharing more with you on how I make my holiday season joyful! Please be sure to comment, share, and subscribe! Also, join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lunachicks.org. Happy Holidays chickadees!
