#LoveElf

“Elf” tells the story of Buddy, a human raised as an elf who reunites with his biological father. Will Ferrell’s natural exuberance gives the role a charm and innocence that would have been cloying with a less talented comedian. 

#LoveDieHard

BuzzFeed opened up a can of worms when it declared that “Die Hard” was a Christmas movie. While its status as a holiday film is debatable, for our purposes here, we’re saying it is. "Die Hard" is not your typical “learn the true meaning of Christmas” fare, unless you think the true meaning of Christmas means defeating terrorists while spitting out snappy dialogue. 

And it that’s how you roll, well, our warmest yippy-ki-yay to you and yours this holiday season.
