All Time Favourite 10 Christmas Movies​​

I love to watch Holiday movies, and so do my family. These movies are fun, entertaining and full of colors, perfect mood boosters after the busy weekdays and a nice way to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends. When the days are getting shorter and not enough outdoor playtime left for my kiddos in these dark winter evenings, then often to overcome the boredom, we gather in front of our fireplace with a big bowl of caramel popcorn and warm cocoa cups, playing our favorite Christmas movies on Television, hmm, such a bliss.

Here, my family’s favorite 10 Christmas themed movies:

HOME ALONE- 

You will never too old to watch this again and again. Really, I forgot the count.

An eight-year-old troublemaker must protect his house from a pair of burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.

THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS-

A movie that tells about Halloween and Christmas, beautifully created.

Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE-

The classic feel-good movie.

An angel is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.

THE POLAR EXPRESS-

Who does not love to hear Tom Hanks’s voice as the ticket master? It’s a beautiful story that will be embraced by every future generation. A true Christmas movie.

On Christmas Eve, a young boy embarks on a magical adventure to the North Pole on the Polar Express, while learning about friendship, bravery, and the spirit of Christmas.

ELF-

Will Ferrel is awesomely funny as ELF. A nice Christmas comedy movie to light up your holidays.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS-

When Dr. Seuss story meets with Jim Carry, then it has to be a laugh riot. Indeed, a happy classic Christmas movie.

THE SANTA CLAUS-

Watch how a commoner can become the Santa and the consequences he faced afterward. Nice comedy, feel-good movie.

Another funny movie.
