Holiday Movies on Hoopla

It’s the holiday season and a time to get festive. Playing outdoors in the snow can be fun, but on some cold days, it’s great to just stay cozy at home. Why not bake some cookies and make some hot chocolate or eggnog and watch a holiday movie inside. Snuggle up these holiday films on Hoopla:

  1. Miracle on 34th Street – A holiday classic, in which a department store Santa Claus claims to be the real one.
  2. A Christmas Carol –This Christmas staple by Charles Dickens, is a must watch. There are many different adaptations on Hoopla.
  3. The Nutcracker – Watch a cartoon version of Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky’s famous Christmas ballet. The 1892 ballet was originally, based on a book, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, written in 1816 by E.T.A. Hoffman.
  4. Little Women – This movie adaptation is based on a 19th century bildungsroman or coming of age novel by Louisa May Alcott.
  5. The Night Before Christmas – This movie is inspired by the popular poem, The Night Before Christmas, originally titled, A Visit From St. Nicholas. It was originally published in 1823. 
  6. Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer – This is a childhood favourite.
  7. Babes in Toyland – The live action version stars a young Keanu Reeves and even younger, Drew Barrymore. It is worth a watch.
