The start of December always brings to my mind the upcoming holidays, and spending time with family and friends. It is also the time in the IMC when we begin to pull together our favorite holiday movies to share with our WCU community. While we’re unable to do this physically this year, I thought it would be a great time to reflect on our favorite holiday movies. We all have that special movie we watch each year around this time, so I decided to look and see which of the movies from our holiday display were the most popular—you might be surprised!
The most popular movie was Love, Actually, which may not (actually) be a surprise. We love to watch a happy ending and this movie, along with taking place during the holiday season, does a wonderful job portraying that.
Our next popular movie was Frozen because, of course. Winter Wonderland themed with catchy music to match, how could this not be a favorite movie? Another (non-surprise) movie on our list was Elf, again, very self-explanatory.
The next movie surprised me, but perhaps because I’ve never seen it—Four Christmases. It has a great cast (Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon) so that always helps. And finally, our 5th most highly rated holiday movie was Happy Feet. This is an adorable movie, and I’m glad it got some love on our holiday list.
Was your favorite movie in our top 5? If not, what is it? Tweet us @fhglibrary or shoot us a message on Instagram so we can highlight your favorite holiday movie. I also noticed that we had some movies from our holiday display that had never been watched, so I’ll be planning to take home one of these movies and see how good (or bad) it is—stay tuned!
