It’s December! Now the countdown to the holidays begins. This also likely means exams; sorry I had to say it, but the holidays are what we look forward to once we have conquered finals season.
During the holidays, some may decide you need a vacation to get out of the snow. Others are getting ready to spend this time with their family and the 100 questions they ask you about your future. Today, we will talk about the importance of family and Disney movies you should watch to feel the family love (Or watch with your family to distract them).
This film shows us students that our family may try to protect us from the world but that is only because they love us. The song “We Are One” shows that our family is always there to support us even through the challenges.
Not all families are the average people who follow the norms of society. So why should we not let them be who they are.
As students, we may often get embarrassed by our family for showing up at screaming/cheering at events or watching you while your trying to talk to your crush (like seriously though). While we tend to say, “My family is crazy”, what we should really learn from this film is that deep down we would not change who our family is for the world. They are our superheroes who help us when we need it most.
Ever have that one song that just brings up all these tears of joy, that is me when I hear Phil Collins sing “You’ll be in my heart”.
As students, this film teaches us that what makes us family is not what’s on the outside but the love we have for each other in our hearts. This love is strong enough that we will stand up to defend those we care about.

Ending this list with my favorite and must watch family film to watch with your loved ones. This film also shows that any arguments you have with family that may want to keep you away from them this holiday season will only leave you with regrets.
As students, this film teaches us to forgive our loved ones and no matter where they are we should remember how much we love them.
This holiday season we must remember to cherish the loved ones we have in our lives. Whether its your special someone, sibling, aunts & uncles, grandparents and parents; they are our support system who wants to see us be successful. Wherever you are, your Ohana is behind you and you can overcome exams knowing that you are not alone.
