This past weekend was the first the first in which Disney’s Frozen was not one of the top ten grossing movies at the box office since it was released on November 27th.

Frozen is the 13th highest grossing film of all time and 2nd highest grossing animated film, falling second to Disney’s Toy Story 3. Long story short, you are completely legitimized for still having “Let it Go” stuck in your head.
