Top 10 Family Christmas movies

I know it’s been a while since I posted last. I’ve been settling into my new job, and it’s been taking more of my time than I expected. However now that I’m more settled I’m hoping to be able to get back to my regular positing.

Christmas is just around the corner and anyone who knows me knows that I get a little nutty around Christmas.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I love the festive season, the lights, the decorations and even the songs! This year we started off the festive season early by watching a bunch of older Christmas movies with Zoey (and Dean) just too properly get us all in the mood for Christmas.

We spent some great quality family time enjoying some classic family Christmas movies and enjoying some snacks while we watched the movies. We even spent one night driving around our town trying to look at the different lights and decorations. I specifically used the word ‘tried’ as in our whole drive there was a total of 1 house decorated. Very disappointing.

Anyway, I decided to share our list of movies with you all. They work great for getting the kids excited about Christmas, but are also nice for the adults to enjoy!


Here is my list of top movies to watch before and during the Christmas Season:

  • Home Alone
  • Home Alone 2
  • The Santa Clause
  • The Santa Clause 2
  • The Grinch
  • Jingle all the way
  • Christmas with the Kranks
  • Arthur Christmas (animated)
  • Nightmare before Christmas (animated)
  • Deck the Halls

There are a LOT of other movies that are also great, but this is my top 10 list of family movies.

So get the popcorn, cookies and warm milk ready. Grab a movie and enjoy with your family.

Ps. These movies will also work great with Christmas Eve movie gift boxes for kids.
