The Top 50 Best Christmas Movies of All Time

There are so many reasons to love the holiday season! One of which is the chance to snug up by the fire and watch your favorite Christmas movies. I personally love having them play while baking, decorating the tree or wrapping gifts!

 

Gamesradar came up with a great list to pick from! My favorites include:

1) Love Actually (2003)

This is one of my personal favorites. The reason why it's so great is because it's a modern take on Christmas today. No one celebrates Christmas the same way in this film making it a favorite for everyone. There's everything from big romantic gestures to a couple of old friends spending the holidays with nothing but a beer and each other.

2) How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

This Dr. Seuss fable staring a misanthropic creature played by the talented Jim Carrey is great for all ages! The sarcastic undertones paired with the Christmas spirit is fun for everyone! The best part of the movies is when The Grinch eagerly awaits the cries of disappointed children when they wake to find no gifts under the tree. Instead the Grinch finds to his surprise a chorus of singing brought on by the Christmas spirit.

3) Millions (2004)

This film isn't necessarily a classic but is perfect for the Christmas season nonetheless. Two young brothers discover a bag of bank notes that are set to expire at the end of the year. They must decide what to do with the money. Spend it? Give it to charity? Watch to find out.

4) A Christmas Carol (2009)

This well known tale is played out on screen by Jim Carrey. Not only does he play the Scrooge but he also plays the three ghosts. One of the best scenes in the film is the flash back provided by the ghost of Christmas past which shows Scrooge and the audience all that was given up in the pursuit of wealth.

5) Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)

While all the Home Alone films are good this one is particularly grand due to the fact that it captures New York during Christmas time. Who can forget when Kevin reunites with his mom under the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree? Not me.

6) The Shop Around the Corner (1940)

Retail co-workers Alfred and Klara are working during the busiest time of the year and tensions are high. Little do they know that they are each other's secret pen pals who have fallen in love via letter writing. *Spoiler alert* They declare their love to one another on Christmas Eve.

7) The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

A Tim Burton classic this claymation about Halloween characters taking over Christmas is good to watch from October 31st all the way to Christmas day. I for one which Christmas town was a real place.

8) Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Young Natalie Wood plays a naive girl named Susan Walker who is convinced the Santa at the Macy's department store is the real deal. This is one of few films that can be enjoyed by all generations.

9) Elf (2003)

Buddy the human elf leaves the North Pole and takes on the big apple as well as his jolly-less father played by James Caan. Seeing a full grown man enjoy Christmas like a child is heartwarming. As unlikely as this would be in reality, there is a group of New Yorkers who help sing carols in order to restore the Christmas Spirit and start Santa's Sleigh.

10) It's A Wonderful Life (1946)

This film about a suicidal man in a small town hardly sounds like a feel-good Christmas film. Don't be fooled, this story has a happy ending! James Stewart's character is saved by divine intervention and a second class angel finally earns his wings!
