As a child, I loved watching Christmas movies, every weekend during December there was tons of new movies to watch. Sometimes I even got to see my favorites more than once. If you’re lacking in Christmas spirit this year and I want to restore it, why not check out some Christmas movies? I tried to pick a mixture of a live action and animated movies for you lovelies. But I’m not going to lie, I’m a big cartoon fan, so it was a bit tough not to fill the list with them. I’ll probably make a post just of Christmas cartoon movies and specials. But for now, check out this Christmas movie list I’ve made, and checked twice.
6 Christmas Movies
Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas
If you read my Christmas tag post (which you should, and do the tag too), you’ll know my absolute favorite Christmas movie is the Grinch. This is the live action adaption of the popular Dr. Seuss Christmas tale. I watched this movie for the first time when it premiered in 2000 and I fell in love. Ever since it started airing on television, I watched this movie every year during Christmas. As an adult, I watch it as many as three times during the Christmas season.
I’ve only watched this a couple times and it’s honestly such a silly movie. But in a good way! You’re sure to get some laughs and finish the movie with a grin on your face. My boyfriend swears by this movie, (to the point of watching it once a month). Okay he’s a bit obsessed, and with good reason!
A Charlie Brown Christmas
If you’re like me and still watch cartoons, or at least have a soft spot for them then this is for you. I remember watching this on ABC as a kid on the first Friday of December, every year. This is another one of my Christmas staples that just doesn’t grow old for me. And if you have kids, you can introduce to a movie from your youth!
Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer
Another Christmas movie targeted towards Children that I just love. If you know how the song, then you might also be acquainted with this stop-motion animation. This movie is a very interesting take on Rudolph. What with the misfit toys and the elf who would rather go into dentistry. There’s a reason why CBS has been airing this special since 1972.
The Santa Clause
Another ABC favorite of mine growing up as a child. This tells the story of a dad, who causes Santa to fall off the roof of his house and disappear. As a result of a clause (putting on Santa’s suit and riding his sleigh), the dad now becomes to new Santa Claus. He then has to convince his family and loved ones that he is indeed ol’ Saint Nick. Honestly, I haven’t watched the move in years, but I still have very fond memories of it.
Miracle on 34th Street
A movie beloved by many and won many awards, and with good reason. If you don’t mind it being in black and white, I highly recommend it. Based on a story, it depicts the impact that a Macy’s Santa Claus has on the people around him. It’s a very heart-warming film that may even have you believing in Santa yourself.
So this is my list, what do you think? Are there any Christmas films that you’d like to recommend? If you do, just leave it in the comment section below. I can’t wait to read your lovely responses as I’m always on the look out for new seasonal films.
