Spending time with family and friends to watch movies is undoubtedly a key part of celebrating the holiday season. Many films, including Home Alone, Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Polar Express, and A Christmas Carol, are all-time favorites. As Winter Break approaches, here are some of Harrisites’ favorite holiday movies this year that you may want to consider watching.

“The first thing that comes to mind when I think of the holiday season is The Grinch or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But, I would say my favorite holiday movie is Home Alone It makes me feel wonderful because I watch it with my friends and family a lot during the holidays.” said Junior Quing Fen Chen. 

“My favorite holiday movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love that it’s fun Christmas-themed, and a stop-motion animation,” said Freshman Tashfia Mahmud. 

Other Harrisites prefer watching nostalgic movies for a sense of warmth. Sophomore Ivan Sun said, “My favorite movie is probably The Polar Express. It’s the first holiday-themed movie  I recall watching and it now [gives me] a sense of nostalgia as the memories of watching it as a kid come back.” 

Junior Lamiah Tasnim said, “I like the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas because of the powerful message behind its storyline. It’s touching to see how showing a little love can restore the holiday spirit, even for someone as evil and grumpy as the Grinch. It shows the power of the holidays and makes me feel warm inside.”

Harrisites are also open to watching newer holiday movies that have been debuting recently. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid Christmas: Cabin Fever, a comedy film based on the popular book series A Diary of a Wimpy Kid, was released on December 8, 2023, becoming a hit for many Harrisites. Lamiah adds, “This film is very exciting, since I loved the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies. It brings your childhood favorites into the holiday spirit, making it even more special.” 

As the snow falls and festive lights twinkle, Harrisites are settling in with their favorite holiday movies, transporting into a world of joy, laughter, and winter spirit.
