Holiday music vs. movies

Gaby Perez and Grace Cloherty

Grace: Holiday music has been a staple of Christmastime for years and years. It is one of the things people look forward to the most. It puts everyone in the best of moods for the happiest time of the year.

Gaby: Holiday music is extremely overplayed, and the same songs get old very quickly. While some people might look forward to Christmas music, the constant repeat of the same songs get boring to listen to after a while. Christmas movies delivers on true holiday cheer.

Grace: The originality of Christmas music is in the repetition. It all depends on the singer. The singer brings their own twist to a classic song. If you want to talk about getting old quickly, talk about the plots to 90% of all Christmas movies. The same boring storyline gets replayed with minor variations in each movie.

Gaby: Even though Christmas music is enjoyed and loved by many because of the catchiness, Christmas music lacks what Christmas movies have. They lack the ability to bring families and friends together to enjoy films. People can relate more to the movies by actually being able to see them. By gathering with loved ones and enjoying a Christmas movie, people are not only entertained, but also enjoying the bonding time.


Who doesn’t like singing at the top of their lungs to some good jolly music? I’m pretty sure movies aren’t the only things that bring people together. We love to be happy and sing along in cheer. As a song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”

Gaby: I do agree that songs bring Christmas spirit to those who are exposed to it. Although, in general if you’re trying to get into the Christmas spirit, get into it cuddled up and enjoying a movie that helps create a picture of what Christmas really is. And who doesn’t love popcorn, amirite ladies?
