6 Most Popular Movies to Watch During the Holidays
Ready to kick up your feet, grab your SURE Universal and watch some movies? It’s a great time to stay inside all warm and cozy with on demand shows, your TV or Blu-Ray discs to keep you company. Whether you’re itching to watch a belly laughing movie or a tear-felt drama, here at Tekoia, we’ve got you covered. So find some good snacks, a comfortable place to sit and binge watch some oldie, but goodie movies. Here are the top six holiday movies you can watch with your loved ones.
1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
The classic holiday move to rewatch year after year. The best is to watch it with a full belly and with your family close by. The film looks at the life of George Bailey and we catch him at the worst time possible – he’s feeling down on his life and is contemplating suicide. Luckily, fate intervenes and an angel shows up to help steer him in the right direction. This angel points out all the good he has done and all the people he has helped along the way. Check your local listings, catch it on Netflix or dust off your DVDs to enjoy this quintessential movie.
2. Home Alone (1990)
Who doesn’t like Macaulay Culkin as a young prankster? Home Alone isn’t just for kids; it’s for the kid at heart. Kevin McCallister mistakenly gets left home alone after acting out the night before and being sent to sleep in the attic. In the franticness of packing and getting ready to leave for their holiday trip, the entire family (extended family included) didn’t realize they left one McCallister home alone. Enjoy the pranks and watch the bungling burglars try to invade Kevin’s house this holiday.
3. Christmas Vacation
For many people, Christmas Vacation staring the ever funny Chevy Chase is hands down the best holiday movie. And the best part of the movie? When Chevy, ahem, we mean Clark Griswald, greases up a sled and goes barreling down the hill faster than any kid could ever – onto oncoming traffic. Sometimes we face big choices in our lives. In the Family Man, Jack Campbell – played by Nicolas Cage – has to choose between his fast-paced lifestyle with fame and success, or a family life with the woman who got away. In the spirit of A Christmas Carol, The Family man looks at a life that could have been and a life that is.
5. Elf (2003)
Who doesn’t like a 6ft+ tall Elf at their front door? Will Ferrell stars in this now-it’s-a-classic movie loved by children and adults alike. While the movie is far fetched – a young baby hitched a ride with Santa and grew up with his Elves – it has a little something for everyone. So, sit by the fire with your family and enjoy the funny antics of Buddy the Elf.
6. Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Growing up we’re sure you’ve heard the classic story of the Grinch. Now you can see this story come to life. With Jim Carrey as the Grinch, you won’t be disappointed. Relive a story from when you were a child with your own family.
