The Best Movies for Christmas 2018
With Thanksgiving in a few days, and Christmas in just over a month, there are so many great movies showing this year. I wanted to showcase what I think are the best and most classic Christmas movies for 2018 and when/where they will be shown.
The next parade is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is always an awesome event to watch while you are preparing Thanksgiving Day food. This is the ninety-second annual parade, and there is also tons of floats. Some of the best balloons include the Pillsbury dough boy, Snoopy, a large Turkey, SpongeBob SquarePants, Shrek, and the Energizer bunny. There is also tons of fantastic bands, dancers and even live performances by Celebrities! Performances include Bazzi, Pentatonix, John Legend and many more. The parade will be broadcast only on NBC and will start at 9:00 a.m.
Now, let’s talk about movies and the top three best ones in my opinion. These are in no order.
The first one is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This is one of the most classic and in my opinion, funniest movies of all time. Clark Griswold can’t seem to ever get a break, and all the antics he has to deal with are insane. However, that never has stopped him from trying to have a great Christmas with his family. I personally think this movie reflects the life of most people during Christmas. They want to have a Christmas that goes perfect with their family. However, nothing seems to go right. From a crazy relative, to overcooked food, we always have those bad moments. But the important lesson to learn is that Clark still made his Christmas the best he could. The movie will air on AMC on the 28 of November at 7:15 and 9:00 P.M. It will also be available to see in theaters on December 1, at 7:30 P.M. There will also be other showings throughout the money, so keep an eye on T.V Listings.
The next movie is Home Alone. This is another great movie to watch, and Macaulay Culkin would agree. This movie follows Kevin McCallister as he is left home alone when his family goes on a trip. He has to defend his own home from Marv and Harry. Home Alone also shows the struggle of his Kevin’s mother, and I think the ending of the movie sums everything up. Sometimes, we do or say things to people we love that may hurt them, but in the end, we forgive and love them. Kevin wished that he would never see his family again. However, when they got home he was thrilled to see them. The movie will be showing on November 27, on STARZ network at 1:33P.M and showing in Theaters on Thanksgiving Day at 1:40 P.M and 7:15 P.M at Park West Village.
The final pick was a tough tie between the Grinch and The Polar Express. Both of these movies are awesome, and teach us great lessons. However, I had to go with the Polar Express. The one reason I choose the Polar Express was the message it conveys: To simply believe in the spirit of Santa Clause. People forget what the spirit of Santa Claus is, and that is to give. In The Polar Express, we see how young Hero Boy has forgotten to believe in the spirit of Saint Nick. He goes on a wild train ride on the Polar Express. The best part of the movie in my opinion is the train ride, and the tails going through the forest. The scenery is fantastic for a movie, and I loved watching the singing part on the back of the train. The movie will show at the Wells Fargo IMAX Theater at Marbles from the 21 of November to the 26 at 11:00 A.M. There are no current airings for T.V, but I am positive they will be out soon.
So what Christmas movie is your favorite? Do you agree or disagree with me? Let us know below!
