I have done hours of research along with my 20+ years of extensive knowledge on Christmas movies. However, I do have one qualm – why isn’t there a Christmas Birthday movie yet? Do I need to make my own movie to put on my own list? I think so. 😉 Anyways, here is a detailed, thorough Christmas movie list of the absolute best holiday movies for you and loved ones to enjoy this holiday season!

The Classics

I will keep this simple. If you haven’t watched half of these, you are not ready for Christmas. You will not receive your Christmas presents until you watch A MINIMUM of half of these movies. Plain and simple. Oh, and you have to do it while wearing comfy jammies, snuggling your pet, while drinking hot chocolate in a Santa hat. Hey, I don’t make the rules. Christmas does.

Christmas Movie List: The Honorable Mentions

These honorable mentions are movies that are pretty fresh off the presses. Think within the last 10 years or so. Being that young, that can’t be considered holiday classics just yet – but they definitely will one day in the future. Many of them are also originals of their respective streaming service. Although you can find most every movie ever made on any given streaming service, these newer Christmas movies can be found on Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube.

Can’t Forget Claymations

You can’t have Christmas without these classic Christmas claymations. These are actual masterpieces. We are so used to CGI and greenscreen magic that we have forgotten that movies used to be made frame by frame, one little tiny motion at a time. If your family doesn’t have a tradition of watching these cinematic beauties, then make it a thing for this year and every year from here on out.

If these holiday movies make you happy, then make an effort to really divulge into making a list of your own that you need to watch for the rest of the winter season. Which Christmas movie are you going to watch first? I bet you can’t guess what I am watching literally right this second!

    OMG yes I love this, I’m slowly making my way through my list, yesterday we watched A Christmas Prince Royal Baby( pretty sure that’s how it’s called) on Netflix, tonight is either home alone 3 (my fave) or Santa Clause. I still need to see Elf but I’ve watched the Grinch twice ahhaha
