Our Favorite Holiday Movies



The holidays mean different things to people, and that goes the same for our team of writers when it comes to the movies we like to watch during the holiday season. It was fun for each of us to share our top five favorite holiday movies. Some of us like the same movie, so there is a list of our overall top five favorites with details for where you can watch them. As inspiration for future travel, I have also included the location that the movies were either shot or is the setting for the story.


Need a break from studying for finals, shopping or just some holiday cheer? If you like the traditional classics or a romantic comedy we have something on our lists for you this holiday season.
