3A Christmas Story

Classic. Love this movie, it symbolizes Christmas for so many! It feels like Christmas once I have seen it. - davidthenurse

Great movie, hilarious. Quality control not quite there... Not Quite there... Almost there.. Almost.. Just a little more and I might have it, come on. Come on. Come on.. Little bar, go into green please.. YES!

I watch this movie every Christmas. I love it so much I sometimes even watch it when it's not close to Christmas. It's a movie with tons of character. It's a great classic. It should be number one on the list!

YES! Watch it every Christmas Eve. Oh fudge...

4It's A Wonderful Life

I think this movie is more than just a Christmas movie. it's just a movie that happens to take place around Christmas. the main plot doesn't concern Christmas and instead focuses on the impact one man can have on the world. this movie is so heartwarming because it makes you consider how well you've influenced the lives of others. we all have, in some form or another, made the life of somebody better, which is why we all deserve to exist.

Even though I'm an atheist (which I have nothing against other religions), this movie doesn't rub Christianity in my face. instead it allows me to keep my beliefs that individuals are all special and unique (by special I don't mean overly selfish or narcissist. it's not about you you know), and none of them deserve to die.

I bet if everyone were to watch this movie, the world would be a much better place to live in.

Such a beautiful movie that is STILL the best Christmas movie of all time! R. T made this the best Christmas movie of all time, and who really cares if it's black and white? One does not simply not watch it's a wonderful life...

The meaning behind this film is so beautiful. I love how this film isn't actually about Christmas but still has falls into a Christmas theme, I love the ending to this film. A True classic compare to most of the junk you get on your T.V. around Christmas time about flying reindeers, talking snowmen & toys. This film shows that the most simple & free things in life are the BEST & that LIFE is a gift.

Best Christmas movie of all time I have seen it about 2000 times

5National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

A great quality movie. My favorite part was when Uncle Eddie calls his toilet the "S******"

Watch it every year. Home Alone came close and so did a Christmas Story though. - FakeGlasses

AWESOME movie. I love the part where Clark tells the kids he heard on the news that Santa was in their area, and Uncle Eddie says "are you serious Clark? ". My vote for #1!

I watch this movie every year around the holidays as a tradition.

6The Polar Express

The polar express always gives me the Christmas spirit. I could not go a Christmas without watching it. Even though I am older and santa claus does not visit me, I still believe in the spirit of him.

Best Christmas movie ever made. It's so heartwarming and it never gets old. Plus, Tom Hanks. Enough said.

How can you not love this movie? It has all the Christmas spirit you can possibly get! This is the one Christmas movie I watch the night of Christmas Eve every year. It's so heartwarming it always puts me in a good mood, and makes me like Christmas that much more whenever I watch it. The Polar express will always be number 1 in my world!

I love this movie I cry every time!

7A Charlie Brown Christmas

Simple, sweet dialogue. Great jazzy soundtrack. A classic.

Great message about the true meaning of Christmas - Ajkloth

A fun, light movie that shows what Christmas disallowed about. Love it!

The singing at the end warms my heart.

8Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

I was about to vote for Charlie Brown until I saw this. It takes place in NYC and the toy store is so awesome and plot makes sense and the humor is more hilarious than the first one. This is a all time classic. After this movie, the series went downhill an now we have the stupid Home Alone movies. 1 and 2 are classic. Also it's a underrated movie and you could enjoy it with your family. - JaysTop10List

Cause not like you expect and in york so yeah

I like this movie even more than Home Alone 1

Not as good as the first, but still a brilliant movie that Christmas can't be celebrated without!

9Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

How is THIS not in the top ten? This is the most nostalgic holiday movie ever made! The song "There's Always Tomorrow, " when Clarice sings it to Rudolph especially tugs at my heart strings. And I'm fifteen years old! - ElleWoods

10The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is one of my favourite Christmas movies and is now a classic. This movie is timeless. Every year around Christmas AND Halloween I have to watch it. Tim Burton is a creepy, creative genius.

13A Christmas Carol

Please note that my vote is for the 1951 film. I cannot honestly say any other adaptation is anywhere near as good. - BKAllmighty

Why the hell is this not on the list? You commercialism lovers!

I LOVE the 1938 adaptation. It just stands out for me. - Derpyderpderpderp

16Family Guy Presents: Road to the North Pole

Was a pretty good episode of the show. - BeanBag343

17Die Hard

How is this not on the list? It takes place in Christmas! And as a response of all these things you will say like: "Oh, but it doesn't mean anything about Christmas! ", as Nostalgia Critic said: "F*** you, it's Die Hard! "

Absolutely. I was wondering the same thing. This might be my favorite Christmas movie. It was a blast to see in the theater back in the day and it never gets old. Not the typical holiday movie!

It counts! It takes place around Christmas.

Wasn't Tom Cruise in this... - venomouskillingmachine

18A Christmas Carol (1951)

This one is my favourite Christmas movie. It is a bit scary but that is what I like about it. I have no idea why it is all the way down here. - birdechosplash

Should be number obe. They don't make movies like this anymore. LOVE IT!


This is an all-time classic comedy, Christmas or otherwise. It's quotable and has a wonderful combination of drama, cynicism, comedy, absurdity, and (as any Christmas movie should) redemption. Bill Murray at his slapsticky sarcastic-and-vulnerable peak.

This movie is absolutely hilarious. The three ghosts are perfect!

V1 Comment

It is not humanly possible to watch this movie without laughing. Its scenes switch from kid friendly to incredibly violent in seconds with no transitions. The whole thing is so absolutely horrible that the only movie I can think of that is funnier is Gremlins 2.

It might seem like a horror film, but it is great on it's own. - AlfredFJones

It's incredibly scary and comedic at the same time.

I watch it every Christmas without fail.
