Let’s be honest; we all know what happens when November 1st comes around. We dust off the Christmas decor and blast Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ for the rest of the year. The holiday cheer is going nowhere this year, especially with this list of our favorite holiday movies to watch at your VIDA apartments in Studio City.

Our Top Five Holiday Movies to Watch This Year

Die Hard

Die Hard is a must-watch for those of you living in Los Angeles who prefer their Christmas turkey with a bit of action on the side. Die-hard is like a stocking: the packaging is not the same, and sometimes it hangs far from the tree, but that makes it no less part of the tradition.

Jack Frost

Jack Frost lived a somewhat bitter life and ended up dying in a car accident on Christmas Day. A year later, Jack’s son plays a song on his old harmonica, and he comes back to life, but this time as a snowman!

Love Actually

Five words: To me, you are perfect. Why not hate-watch Love Actually a thousand more times? The moment we all adore when Mark comes to the door with handwritten notecards confessing his love for Juliet makes us melt EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. This movie captures the complex, inspiring, and stressful time of the year that is the holidays.

Jingle All The Way

A workaholic dad wants to make things up to his son and wife by promising to get his son the hottest toy of the season, even though it’s Christmas Eve, and the toy is nearly sold out. As Langston hunts down the gift, he runs into another father on the same quest. With the clock ticking, Langston’s moral code is tested as he begins to understand the real meaning of Christmas.

The Santa Claus

1994 was a rather exciting year for most children. The fear was that Santa would fall off their roof and to his death. What a way to make a cheerful holiday into a nightmare, huh? When Scott Calvin causes Santa to die on his property, he has to assume the role of the next Santa Claus. This movie is one for the books and is our last recommended holiday movie for this season to watch in your VIDA apartments in Studio City!
