Top 10 Greatest Christmas Movies
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is a magical film that captures your imagination.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Considered by many as a masterpiece among Christmas movies, It’s a Wonderful Life is a timeless classic that still resonates today.
There are not too many horror films that become a Christmas movies favorite, but Gremlins is an enchantingly funny film.
The Santa Clause 2 (2002)
A truly fun movie to watch with the kids, The Santa Clause 2 is a worthy sequel to one of the best Sana films of all times.
Many of us have tired of the many versions of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but Scrooged is a modern and irreverent adaptation that you will love.
The Santa Clause (1994)
Tim Allen has to be the best Santa ever! The Santa Clause was an instant Christmas classic that is both fun to watch and teaches the true spirit of the season.
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
Miracle on 34th Street is charming, delightful, and funny. If you have lost your Christmas spirit, and stopped believing in Santa, this film will turn you around.
The Polar Express (2004)
The Polar Express is a spectacular movie, and one of the best holiday fantasy films for the kids.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)
A bit of a guilty pleasure, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation has way too many similarities with holiday celebrations at my house.
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Jim Carrey is the perfect Grinch, and this live-action version of the Dr. Seuss classic is smart, funny, and a bit twisted—which is why I love it.
