The ULTIMATE Christmas Movie List

If you know me, you know I LOVE Christmas time and more importantly, Christmas movies. After Halloween, you will find me ONLY watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music.

Where I live, we get snow here and there, but never all of the time. Watching a Christmas movie keeps me in the festive mood and gives me all of the cozy vibes!

Christmas movies also take me right back to my childhood and the magic that comes along with Christmas. There is nothing like being a kid around Christmas time and anticipating Santa coming! Sitting here writing this I am immediately in the Christmas mood and it is only October, ugh. When do you being Christmas shopping? I just bought my first Christmas present yesterday!

Below I am going to list my all-time favorite Christmas movies that I have to watch AT LEAST once a year, but most I watch more than once.

  • Home Alone (ALL of the Home Alones)- Personally, I LOVE them all. My husband on the other hand only enjoys the first two! This is a movie I find myself watching year-round, but especially around Christmas time.
  • The Santa Clause (again, ALL OF THEM)- I think of these, they are all equally as good. This is one I have been watching since I was a child and they never get old.
  • The Ultimate Christmas Present– This is a Disney Channel movie that I have literally loved since I was in elementary school. It comes a blizzard for these girls that have stolen a weather machine and Santa comes to save the day!
  • Holiday in Handcuffs– This one is from ABC Family and is one I have always loved! It is hilarious and full of Christmas vibes. This is a comedy, love story, and even has someone get abducted in it!
  • Noelle– This is a newer Disney Channel Christmas movie and it doesn’t disappoint! Noelle is full of Christmas spirit and has to go on a hunt for her brother in time to save Christmas!
  • Elf– This is a no brainer! You MUST watch Elf at least once every year, if not more. Elf is a hilarious Christmas movie that brings so much Christmas spirit!
  • A Christmas Story– Now, if you have your TV on you will watch this more than a handful of times because I swear it is ALL that plays on Christmas Day!
  • The Grinch– OMG. This movie. My husband highly dislikes this movie, but of course, it is one of my favorites! I used to get scared watching this when I was little. I personally don’t care for the newer version of this movie, but the older one is one that I watch numerous times during the holidays.
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation– This movie is a great movie to watch with your family for a good laugh! Nothing right can happen when you have your in-laws in for the holidays!
  • A Madea Christmas– Who doesn’t love a Madea movie? Like, come on! This one will not disappoint. It is funny, surrounded by Christmas spirit, and the perfect bit of a love story.
  • Christmas with the Kranks– Now, this is another one that I watch year-round. I find this one to be almost my favorite Christmas movie of all time. A couple sends their daughter off, they plan a cruise at Christmas, and all of their plans come shattering down when their daughter makes a quick visit home for their favorite holiday!
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas– What 90s baby didn’t grow up watching Charlie Brown Christmas? This was something I always looked forward to watching. Now, it is hard to find to watch!
  • The Polar Express– This is my husbands FAVORITE Christmas movie! We always dedicate a night to hot chocolate and watching this movie! I can also say, it is one of my favorites!
  • A Christmas Carol– Ah, this one. When I was little, I would’ve told you this was the worst Christmas movie you could ever watch. Since living with my husband, it has grown on me, but still not what I would say is a favorite of mine!
  • Miracle on 34th Street– I haven’t watch this movie since I was in elementary school and stayed with grandparents every weekend! I remember they had this movie on VCR and I would watch it with my grandmother. This one is on my list to watch this year!
  • Four Christmases– I don’t watch this one every year, but it is a good one! This unhappy married couple soon let’s everything and everyone come together even though they weren’t expecting it.
  • Arthur Christmas– Now, not the Arthur you are thinking of if you are a 90s baby. This one can be found on Amazon Prime and is so cute!
  • Jingle All The Way– This is another one from my childhood! This one is seriously hilarious and I can still remember watching it when I was little with my mom. All the little boy wants a specific doll and his dad does EVERYTHING he can to get it for him!
  • Frosty the Snowman– This is such a classic. I can’t say I can sit down and give my full attention to this at 22 years old, but it is great to have playing decorating the Christmas Tree or wrapping presents!
  • Santa Paws– SUCH A CUTE MOVIE. I love this one! It isn’t one I would choose over all the above, but it is great for little kids and dog lovers!
  • Snow Dogs– This is another one from Disney Channel and I love it during this time because of all the snow, cozy vibes!
  • Good Luck Charlie It’s Christmas– Follow along as Charlie and the family go to Florida for a family Christmas! Unfortunately, the travel there doesn’t quite go as planned! This one is perfect to watch with the family.
  • The Mistletones– This is one on my list to watch this year that I never have before! It isn’t new, but I haven’t got around to watching it yet. It can be found on Disney Plus!

These are all of the Christmas movies that I have on my Christmas Movie Bucket List! I can promise you that I will probably watch these all more than once! What are your favorite Christmas movies to watch with the family?

I have added links to all of the DVD forms of these movies on Amazon! I like to keep building my collection every year even if we are moving to a streaming world!
