Top 10 Christmas Movies of All-Timered christmas bow

  • Die Hard (1988) – Not Christmas-y enough for you? We’re sorry, but this action flick – which takes place on Christmas – is just too good to pass up.
  • Elf (2003) – Purists may have a problem with this pick, but Will Ferrell is as funny as he’s ever been in this holiday movie that offers laughs regardless of the season.
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989) – This favorite – perhaps best to watch when the young ones are asleep – offers belly laughs, memorable and relatable characters, Christmas cheer and so much more!
  • Home Alone (1990) – When Kevin McAllister is mistakenly left home alone over Christmas, a series of fun and exciting events take place. It’s tough to get sick of this modern classic!
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1967) – Skip the Jim Carey version and check out the original cartoon featuring the misunderstood Grinch and his holiday adventures in Whoville.
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) – This visual masterpiece is a dark and memorable and offers both Halloween scares and Christmas joy.
  • Batman Returns (1992) – Sure, it may not be that much of a Christmas movie, but what’s more fun than a 90’s Batman movie? ‘Tis the season!
  • Scrooged (1988) – Every movie marathon needs Bill Murray, so don’t miss him living out a crazy version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ in this gem.
  • Miracle of 34th Street (1947) – This movie is just so emotional … no, these aren’t tears.
  • It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) – Shout out to the greatest of all-time. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is one of the very few movies that doesn’t lose its luster after a yearly viewing.
