With Thanksgiving now over, it’s time to digest that turkey and pumpkin pie, and get ready to sit down with the entore family to enjoy Christmas movies that the whole family can enjoy together.
I asked all of my Christian friends and family members the past few days what is their favorite movie to watch during the Christmas season, and below are the movies that came up the most.
Please let me know if any of the movies below have made your list of Christmas favorites.
1 – It’s a Wonderful Life
I really love this “old” Christmas classic, but it can be a slight bit boring for the younger kids, so make sure to serve some hot chocolate while watching this black and white holiday delight.
2 – A Christmas Story
Honestly, not one of my favorites, not sure why really, but my friends and family all love it, so I have to go with the popular vote on this one to make it number 2 on my list.
3 – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
When I was little this was my favorite, but it;s kind of lost it’s lustre over the years, but again, my loved ones and freinds disgagree with me and really love this Chevy Chase classic.
4 – The Santa Clause
-Now we are talking! I grew up with this Tim Allen classic, and it’s number 2 on my list even though it only broke the top 5 on this list.
5 – Home Alone
This is by far and away my favorite Christmas movire of all time, and not sure how it only made it to number 5 on this list.
6 – A Christmas Carol (Mickey Mouse cartoon)
I don;t ever remember seeing this movie, so I think I’m going to give ot a shot this weekend!
7 – Christmas with the Cranks
Another awesome Tim Allen Christmas movie that I really enjoy watching during the holidays!
