The ultimate ranking of movies depending on how your workday treated you
This time of year, nothing says relaxation like making a nice cup of hot cocoa and putting on a timeless Christmas classic. As our world continues on this chaotic path we call the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nice to put the work away for the evening and turn on the TV. Here is a list of Holiday favorites that you should watch depending on your mood:
When You Need to Unwind and Have A Good Laugh – Elf
This modern-day classic can always make you laugh when you’ve had a long, stressful day. This slap-happy comedy can always put you in a great mood, even when you have been hard at work planning your Hybrid event. You can watch this movie and reminisce about the good ole days when you could walk around NYC at Christmas time, mask-free on crowded streets. Before you know it, we will be back to normal times and the floor plan you are already working on for next year’s show will be put to good use.
When You Need to Take A Trip Down Memory Lane – The Christmas Story
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can take its toll on the average adult. Worrying about working on your exhibitor directory AND providing a super fun Christmas for your kids can be massive tasks. When you want to take a step-down memory lane and remember simpler times, the Christmas Story is a great watch. The story of a young kid around Christmas can get anyone in the spirit of the holiday. Just be sure to be careful and “don’t shoot your eye out, kid”!
When You Are Feeling Like a Misfit – Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer
With the transition to virtual shows and heavily using technology to complete day to day tasks, you may feel like a misfit not knowing how to use all your new tools, just like Rudolph! This stop action classic tells the story of the most famous reindeer of all, and how he was born with the gift to lead the way (he just had to learn to love his gift first). As you continue to pave the way using new software, like online booth sales, you too can be just as successful as our red-nosed friend who went down in history!
When You Are Feeling Down About Having to Social Distance – Christmas Vacation
It will no doubt be a challenging holiday being away from family, but you can step out of your sorrows and into Clark Griswold’s shoes and remember that having all your in-laws at your house can be quite chaotic. Your day-to-day life is stressful as it is, so take the next few weeks to relax and enjoy downtime with your immediate family. At the end of the day, while the big light shows and a full dining room table sounds idyllic, it can also turn into a bottomless pit of chaos.
When You Need to Remember the Reason for the Season – It’s a Wonderful Life
The Christmas blues are a real thing, especially this year. The world feels like it is falling around us all, and some days you may think to yourself, “my team would be better off without me”. However, as George Bailey will tell you, this is not the case! It’s a Wonderful Life is the ultimate Christmas classic that will supply all the feels and will give you the ultimate reminder of the reason for the season. Even through the hardest of times, the people around you will rally together in order to make sure you continue down the path to success!
No matter your mood, you deserve to relax at the end of the day and switching on a Christmas classic is a great way to reward yourself after a hard day’s work.
