There is a reason why you should watch all the classic old Christmas movies when the times comes.

Gather around your friends and family and watch it together!

Home Alone - The Most Popular Christmas Movie #popularmovie
Studio: Twentieth Century Fox

To be honest, Home Alone remains one of the most popular Christmas movies throughout the years. Clearly, there is a reason for that since what can be better than an 8-year old punishing classy burglars. At times it is fine to feel pity for them, but just a little.


The Man Who Invented Christmas - Magic Christmas Movie

The Man Who Invented Christmas - Magic Christmas Movie #magicmovie
Studio: Bleecker Street

If there is anything better than a Christmas story and some magic to it, we know nothing about it. The Man Who Invented Christmas is a warm and kind movie with a pinch of humor and magic to it. Even those of you who generally do not watch movies like that will fall in love with this one.


Elf - Funny Christmas Movie #funnymovie
Studio: New Line Cinema

Elf is clearly on the list of funny Christmas movies that are fit for all families. Will Farrell is a human raised as an elf, and that makes the movie sound a little twisted. However, when you begin to watch it you will forget about that since you won’t be able to stop laughing. A cheerful atmosphere is granted!

Four Christmases

Four Christmases #familymovie
Studio: New Line Cinema

It is hard to predict where your happiness may come from. Four Christmases is one of those family Christmas movies that may begin sour and uninteresting but as the movie goes on, it turns out that things come to a good end when it is Christmas outside.



Scrooged #traditionalmovie
Studio: Paramount Pictures

With our hectic modern lives, it is easy to forget what is the most important thing in the world. Scrooged is that one movie that will remind anyone what Christmas is about and what it is worthy of. If you are losing your faith in something, this movie should be the one on your to-watch list.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas #kidsmovie
Studio: Touchstone Pictures

Some people say that Tim Burton’s Christmas movies for kids are scary and unfit. We beg to differ. It is true, Burton kind of mixes the Halloween with Christmas one, but in the end, he manages to come up with a heartwarming, interesting, maybe a little spooky holiday picture.

Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn #musicalmovie
Studio: MCA Universal Home Video

If you wonder which best Christmas movies of all time we have in store for you – we say how about Holiday Inn? It is a classy musical, that has introduced White Christmas to the world. You are bound to watch it at least once in a lifetime.


How The Grinch Stole Christmas

How The Grinch Stole Christmas #familymovie
Studio: Universal Pictures

Still wondering, what is a good Christmas family movie? Well, then we say How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the movie you should at least consider. We can promise you one thing though, and if you have kids, they will be in the total awe throughout the movie. Besides, we need to mention that Jim Carrey plays the role flawlessly.

The Santa Clause

The Santa Clause #holidaymovie
Studio: Buena Vista Distribution Company

There are times when you think that there are no more good Christmas movies to watch. We say that is not true since The Santa Clause if the one you may be missing. It is a movie shot according to that good old holiday vibe that can’t be mistaken for anything else.

The Holiday

The Holiday #romanticmovie
Studio: Sony Pictures

In case you do not know, romantic Christmas movies exist too. The Holiday is clearly on the list. We say that everything is amazing about this movie, the cast, the plot, the atmosphere. All you need is a cup of hot tea or coffee or maybe a glass of wine, sit back, and watch the miracle happen!



Gremlins #funnymovie
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures

Who does not remember famous Christmas movies creatures – Gremlins! They seem so cute and fluffy in the beginning but then the scenery changes, and you do not know what to expect. Whether you have seen it or not, you must watch once more when the Christmas season starts!

The Family Stone

The Family Stone #familymovie
Studio: 20th Century Fox Distribution

If you do not know whether comedy or dram you want to watch on a wintery evening, we say you opt for something in between. The Family Stone is one of those great Christmas movies that make you view some things differently after watching it.

Joyeux Noel - Traditional Christmas Movie

Joyeux Noel - Traditional Christmas Movie #traditionalmovie
Studio: Sony Pictures Classics

It is safe to say that Joyeux Noel is not a traditional Christmas movie at its core. However, it is still worthy of attention since apart from the festive theme it opens up far greater questions and problems. The movie wouldn’t fit the traditional movie range, but we still think that it is worthy of your attention.


Jingle All the Way

The Santa Clause #holidaymovie
Studio: 20th Century Fox

If you do not want to think about some greater paradigms of this life and all you want is to share a good laugh with your loved one, Jingle All the Way is the kind of Christmas movie that you want to choose. Charming Arnold Schwarzenegger is just a juicy treat for all the fans.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang #traditionalcomedy
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures

There are many traditional comedy Christmas movies but Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang isn’t one of them. It has that peculiar kind of humor that has a bitter aftertaste. If you want a movie with a deeper meaning to it, this one starring Robert Downey Jr. would be the one.


Serendipity #romanticcomedy
Studio: Miramax Films

Very often, Serendipity is excluded from the Christmas movies list. However, we think that it is a poor approach to the season. This romantic comedy totally has the vibe and fits in the season just perfectly. It is a bit old-fashioned, but we think it is rather an advantage than the flaw.

Christmas movies are as special as the season itself. We wish that you do not miss a single worthy movie this year, that is why we have fathered all the top viewed movies from sites like 123movies in one place!
