The Polar Express is a movie favorite that spreads Christmas spirit to everyone watching.

Miracle on 34th street (1994)

Initial release date: November 18th, 1994

Genre: family, holiday

Rating: PG

Rotten Tomatoes: 96%

Although there is an older version, the newer remake still stays true to the original movie. Six year old Susan is starting to have her doubts about Santa Claus. Her mother told her the secret about Santa so she doesn’t expect to receive the more important gifts on her Christmas wish list. That is until a special department store Santa who’s convinced he’s the real Santa comes along and restores her faith in Christmas.

 

Thursday: Cousin Eddie comes to visit what family during Christmas?

Answer: the Griswold family from the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Christmas Vacation

Initial release date: December 1st, 1989

Starring: Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo

Genre: comedy

Rating: PG-13

Rotten Tomatoes: 64%

No matter how optimistic Clark Griswold is, family vacations always go severely wrong. As the whole Griswold family comes to stay under Clark’s roof for Christmas he tries desperately to stay sane. All Clark wants is a big old-fashioned family Christmas but despite all the careful planning, Christmas starts to go downhill with crazy squirrels, SWAT teams, burning Christmas trees, an overcooked turkey, and a visit from crazy cousin Eddie. This movie is guaranteed to leave the whole family laughing.
