12 SpongeBob Christmas Special
13 Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol
14 The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story
15 Elf: 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!

16 Arthur 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.

17 Olive, the Other Reindeer
18 How Murray Saved Christmas
19 Bah Humduck!: a Looney Tunes Christmas

Funny and brilliant!

20 The Night Before Christmas (1968)

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