Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and hope yogot what you wanted and gave someone a gift that made them smile. Every year on Christmas and the holiday season, my family and I watch Christmas movies to celebrate the holiday. Now we watch one everyday until Christmas so we watch 25 movies and well some aren’t as great as others but we still watch them to get in the holiday spirit. Throughout the years there are 10 movies that I absolutely love watchin during the holiday season and here they are.
#10. Arthur Christmas
With a fresh take on the premise of Santa Claus delivering presents, this funny animated film is a joy to watch. With a heartwarming plot line about delivering a missed Christmas present to a girl in order to save her Christmas, it was pretty hard not to shed a tear.
#9. Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas This Christmas is sequel is fun and beautifully animated. Cut into five shorts with each having a different plot and theme, the movie teaches morals and ethics during the holiday season. It’s enjoyable entertainment for both children and adults.
#8. A Charlie Brown Christmas Might just be a special, but it’s a classic and very good. With the story reminding the viewers on the meaning of Christmas (the birth of Jesus), rather than caring about presents. The Peanuts gang makes light of Christmas stress and brings it home with the most honest recognition on what Christmas is all about.
#7. The Polar Express Visually stunning Christmas film that makes you feel like a kid again. It’s a wonderful story about the spirit of Christmas and the importance of believing. With amusing and touching musical moments, this film touches your heart and also fills it with joy.
#6. The Santa Clause 2 A vast improvement on the previous installment of the series. Very touching and enchanting, this sequel has a better story and more holiday cheer than the first one. All the characters, main and supporting develop and make the movie more touching and relatable.
#5. Christmas With The Kranks Another Tim Allen Christmas movie. This one is funny and really takes an important look on family, friends and the community during the holiday season and how they can be affected when you do/don’t have holiday cheer. It shouldn’t be taken too serious, it’s still very enjoyable and touches the heart and because of that, I love watching this movie every Christmas season.
#4. Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas Wonderful animated film with great messages in each short. While the first is a little weak, the other two really touch your heart and really gives you a sense of holiday spirit. Perfect for families and really cemented itself as a holiday classic.
#3. Jingle All The Way A great Christmas adventure full of laughs and mayhem, it ends with a heart warming moment. Mocking commercialism of toys and the shopping frenzy, this film makes light of the situation with humor. Speaking of humor, Sinbad was absolutely amazing and hilarious in the film.
#2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation The most beloved modern Christmas classic that is full of laughs and good cheer. There’s isn’t much more to say, but it’s timeless and stays fresh even after all these years. When it comes to watching Christmas movies, this film is one of the first ones I watch.
#1. A Diva’s Christmas Carol Love this movie! Using the Christmas Carol story as the format and using a fresh take on it, the movie has funny and musical moments that get you in a good mood. Also has heartwarming and sad moments that get you testy eyed. Vanessa Williams is perfectly casted and so is the rest of the cast. I watch this movie about 2-3 times around the holiday season and will watch it every year.
So there you go, my favorite Christmas movies that I watch every year. What are your favorite Christmas movies you watch during the holiday season? Comment below.
