The Best Movies to Watch This Christmas

Christmas is the holiday that seems to have the most build up. It’s all about the holiday spirit that Christmastime brings and, even though Christmas itself only lasts one day, if you get yourself into the holiday cheer, it will make the holiday last a bit longer in your heart.

One of my favorite ways to get into the spirit is by watching Christmas movies. There are so many great ones and all of them bring about a feeling of nostalgia and sweet memories from past Christmases. Here are a few of my favorite Christmas movies that everyone should watch this year to really get into the Christmas spirit.

 

White Christmas. Bing Crosby’s voice is all you need to make this a great movie, but bring in the dancing skills of Vera-Ellen and you’re left with Christmas magic. Set just after World War II, this film takes place at an inn located in snowy Vermont, where the musically talented cast put their skills to work in a Christmas show to bring more business to the inn. The scenery and Christmas colors will get you in the spirit and the musical numbers sprinkled throughout the film will be stuck in your head till New Years!

 

Elf. Smiling’s my favorite. That’s why this movie is one of my favorites. You can’t help but smile every time Buddy speaks. I’m sure this one doesn’t need too much of an introduction so all I’ll say is, if you haven’t seen it yet, you are missing out. It’s not Christmas without a little Baby It’s Cold Outside duet between Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

 

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This movie has something for the crazy family that just seems to lose it every holiday season. With the crazy, drunk cousins that come visit in their RV and the ornery grandparents that always have a complaint, everyone will be able to see a little part of their family in this movie. And for those of you who have that family member that goes to the extreme for Christmas, you’ll appreciate the over use of Christmas lights and the Christmas tree that is a foot too tall to fit in the house.

 

Miracle on 34th Street. The magic of Christmas that can sometimes get lost in the business of the season is brought fully to life in this classic (and remade) film. Every version is excellent and showcases the importance of believing in all that comes with Christmas. Bonus, this movie begins with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade so you have a good excuse to start watching it now! I like to watch it after Thanksgiving dinner as the official beginning of Christmas season.

 

Disney’s A Christmas Carol. Who doesn’t love Charles Dickens and Jim Carrey all wrapped into one with a Christmas bow on top? There have been many adaptations of Dickens’ classic and cautionary Christmas tale but this version is gold. The animation is entertaining and true to the most important parts of the story. It’s a tale that has been around for almost 200 years and is still captivating audiences. This movie is one that must be watched each year to remind everyone of the real meaning of Christmas joy.

 

A Charlie Brown Christmas. This is nostalgia at it’s best. Every time I see this classic Peanuts movie I consider getting a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, dry pine needles and all. One of the best parts of this movie is the music. Linus’s piano playing skills are in full effect and the music alone will bring you an abundance of holiday cheer. I should know, I’ve had the soundtrack for years. ABC airs this classic a couple of times during the season so make sure you catch it! You don’t want to miss Linus explaining the meaning of Christmas. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
