12 of the best Christmas movies you need to watch

Happy November! This year has passed by with an alarming speed. And now it’s almost time for the Festive Season with all the craziness that it brings. I know, if you are anything like my husband, you might think I’m crazy because it’s only the beginning of November. But let me inform you Grinches, I have been listening to Christmas Music from the beginning of October! So this list comes as no surprise to those who know me.

Staying in for a movie night during the holiday season is one of our traditions, which I forced my husband into. Haha! And along with Christmas movies and Christmas songs, what better way to feel festive?

So whether you’re having a family movie night, an at-home-date-night, or just feeling festive, watching Christmas movies is a fun and affordable way to get everyone in a holiday-festive mood!


Here are some of our favourites:

  • The Nightmare before Christmas
  • The Polar Express
  • Elf
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • Home Alone 1 & 2
  • Four Christmases
  • Christmas with The Kranks
  • The Santa Clause 1, 2 & 3
  • The Family Stone
  • Love actually

Hopefully, this list of our best Christmas movies provides you with enough choices to create a Movie Night Tradition just like ours.

As a bonus, here are some movies you might like which didn’t reach our list of favourites.
