Beautiful snow at my house

There may be 12 days of Christmas, and 24 days in an advent calendar, but there are at least 20 required holiday movies to watch in my world – and I wanted to share my favorites with you!

For me it all begins with movies that aren’t actual Christmas movies, but have great Christmas scenes. The next phase of viewing includes movies that occur at Christmas time. And finally as it get closer to Christmas I watch the classic holiday movies that I’ve loved for year (and years…). Mixed in are a few fun movies that I may still watch (even though my son is an adult now). My fave movie lists are below – maybe you’ll see one of your own favorites, or find a new fave! Each movie has a link to more information in case you’re interested. If the weather outside is frightful, or you’re wrapping gifts, or just want to relax into the holiday spirit, movies about Christmas are one of my favorite parts of the season!

Movies with awesome Christmas/Holiday scenes:

Christmastime movies:

Christmas Classics:

Fun Movies to enjoy with, or without, children:

And even a couple for the New Year!:

{ Note: Because many of these movies are from a different time period than ours they aren’t all what some would call acceptable viewing. So, of course,exercise your freedom to choose and don’t watch anything that upsets your own sensibilities.}

I wish for you the most delicious holiday season!! Drop me a line at and let me know your favorite movies of the season! Or share your love of one of the movies mentioned here. I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Holidays!!
