My Favorite Christmas Movies

Where do I even begin?! I LOVE Christmas movies. I feel like I cant get enough of them during the holiday season. There is nothing better than snuggling up under some blankets, sipping some hot coco and watching Christmas movies!!! There isn’t a Christmas movie that I have met that I haven’t liked! So, instead of just five total…I am going to break it down into three lists of five: newer Christmas movies, the classics and cartoons/animated.

New Movies

1. Elf – Last Friday, I told you all why Buddy would be my best friend…so naturally Elf is one of my favorites.

2. Family Stone – I just love this movie. After seeing it the first time, I suddenly worried that one day I wouldn’t fit in well with my future husbands family. I think (gosh I hope!) that I do alright!

3. Bad Santa – Freaking hilarious! Need I say more?

4. The Santa Clause – I love all three of them. I cant help it! Could you imagine if your dad was Santa?

5. The Holiday – Could you imagine switching places with someone in another country? I wouldn’t exactly want to do it for Christmas because I love to be around my family…but this movie is just so cute.


1. The Grinch – I seriously can quote this entire movie and sadly, apply most of it to my life. Perhaps I might do a post on that! Ha!

2. Home Alone – Both the first and second Home Alone are classics!!! I love all the shenanigans that Kevin manages to get himself in to!

3. Miracle on 31st Street – I just love the story line of this one. I like both the old one and the newer one.

4. Jack Frost- Parts of this movie make me bawl my eyes out, but I LOVE this movie!! I feel like this one is highly underrated and not talked about nearly enough!!!

5. Jingle All the Way – The lengths some parents will go to ensure their kid gets what they want on Christmas!


1. Charlie Brown Christmas – I love Snoopy. Chris loves Snoopy. My mom loves Snoopy. My nephew Will loves Snoopy. How can you not love Snoopy or this movie?

2. The Grinch – LOVE the original cartoon classic.

3. Frosty – When Frosty comes to life and says Happy Birthday, tears come to my eyes.

4. Rudolph – I cry when he gets made fun of. I cry when he gets accepted. I am just a big baby.

5. A Christmas Carol – I love the Jim Carrey version of this movie! And the Mickey one too!

What are you favorite Christmas movies?

    I love Elf and everything on your cartoon/kid list. I also really like The Year Without a Santa Claus. Honestly I love all the Christmas movies. So hard to choose!

    At first I didn’t see that you divided them into categories and I was so confused by the numbering LOL i agree with so many of these, esp. the cartoon Grinch movie! Do you watch the Lifetime Christmas movies or Hallmark? You know the cheesy ones? You should list those for us too 🙂

    A Christmas Story is probably my #1, followed closely by Home Alone!

    I quote Rudolph year-round. “She said I’m cute. I’m cuuuuuuute!”

    And where is Love, Actually? I need to watch that this year!
