3The Polar Express

The film that looks more on Christmas Eve

4Frosty the Snowman
5Mickey's Christmas Carol
6Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
7Frosty Returns

This was repeated many times on ABC Family

8Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The good thing about this movie is a remake coming soon

9The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story
10SpongeBob Christmas Special

The Contenders

11Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas

I love Elf, and I love this special too. It's so cool, it reminds me of a lot of stop-motion Christmas specials from Rankin/Bass. Best Christmas special EVER!

12Arthur Christmas

I was so proud and happy that Aardman and Sony Pictures Animation gave us an amazing Christmas movie. Believe me, this is different from Marc Brown's Arthur's Christmas. Arthur Christmas was directed by Sarah Smith, and was awesome.

13Olive, the Other Reindeer
14How Murray Saved Christmas
15Bah Humduck!: a Looney Tunes Christmas

Funny and brilliant!

16The Night Before Christmas (1968)

Better than the Rankin Bass version that came out 6 years later.

17Kung Fu Panda Holiday
18Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol
19The Night the Animals Talked
20Fat Albert's Christmas Special
