Snow has finally arrived in Happy Valley and that means one thing—Christmas movies! Why go to class when you can get cozy on your couch with a cup of hot chocolate and watch your favorite childhood movies? The absolute classic favorites are How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, and Home Alone.
In How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Grinch and his hapless dog, Max, sneak into Whoville to swipe everything holiday-related from the Whos. He encounters a hitch in his devilish plan when he meets Cindy Lou Who, the sweet girl with the crazy hair. In Elf, Buddy is accidently sent to the North Pole as a toddler and raised by elves. He realizes that he doesn’t fit in and sets out to find his father in the Big Apple. As for Home Alone, Kevin McCallister’s family leaves for Paris without him. He soon discovers that two con men are planning to rob his home, which is only the beginning of a hilarious series.

You have a holiday love-hate relationship. You’re always sad because your parents keep forgetting to include you. You’re destined to be part of the McCallister family because you most likely spend a lot of time by yourself, dreaming up cool things to do alone.
