3 A Christmas Story

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

A good heart warming Christmas family classic and it should be ranked number 2 on this list I mean what's not to like I mean most of characters are pretty likeable except for the bullies and father at times and what I really love about this movie is that it doesn't just focus on Christmas but childhood as well and I like the way the kids in this movie act like regular 9 year olds unlike some movies today but aside from its such a charming fun movie that it's impossible to hate well for me it is so for anyone of you who hasn't seen it watch it because your missing a classic and of course it can never be has good has anything like home alone but it's close its very close. P.S never watch the crappy sequel.

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!

This should be #1!

4 National 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!

A great film with manny quotable lines. What is not to love?

5 It'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.

This is my favorite christmas and favorite movie of all time

6 The 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, it isn't my favorite Christmas movie and I don't watch it every year but it's still great. It shows how you can have true Christmas spirit. - PeeledBanana

7 A Charlie Brown Christmas

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

A lot better then that Frozen thing that plays almost everywhere during Christmas and this is not even mentioned, not because it is 52 years old but because Frozen is way more popular. If Frozen did not exist, then people will not know what a homeless guy is, 4-12 year old girls would be singing nothing, and Charlie Brown christmas will be on T.V. during Christmas. Frozen is not even a Christmas movie, and when they have to sing a song that has to do something with Winter, everybody will be getting ready for singing that overrated songs Let it go. Let it go? More like Let it poop. - MinecraftHater

Great message about the true meaning of Christmas - Ajkloth

I really like this one. - PeeledBanana

8 Home 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!

9 The Nightmare Before Christmas

Also the greatest Halloween movie ever made. - ninjacobra

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.

Better than most on here. needs to be a lot higher - evil7

This is more Halloween than Christmas

10 The Grinch

Love this movie, love Jim Carrey! My family use to watch this movie every Christmas. Just amazing!

Such a classic tale and so funny with Jim Carrey! Dr. Seuss has always since I was a child been one of my favourite authors

Love it. LoVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I LOVE CINDY LOO-HOO!

I really like this one too! - PeeledBanana

The Contenders

11 Rudolph 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

A Christmas classic, sure Elf and Home Alone are super funny and popular, but Rudolph is a real keeper. It reminds me of my childhood, I'm 13 and I still enjoy sitting down with some hot chocolate and watching Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer on Christmas Eve!

12 The Santa Clause

This is a staple in the days leading up to Christmas. Hilarious and heart-warming, gets me in the spirit.

This should be #2 next to Christmas vacation but still good

Under-rated in my opinion, should be in the top 10.

13 How the Grinch Stole Christmas

How the grinch stole Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie ever and it will always be my favorite

Transformers 3 is my favorite movie ever it's my 4th favorite movie ever

Way better than Jim Carrey's version. I didn't like it at all

Pretty sure this should be higher than jim careys grinch. Greatest Christmas movie ever

This movie is already on this list.

14 A 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

15 Miracle On 34th Street

Well, it just proves there really is a Father Christmas, doesn't it?

This is the best Christmas movie of all time this should be number one!

I got suspended during this movie at school :P

In my opinion this is the number #1 Christmas movie 💕

16 Die 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 may not be the best, but it's the most AWESOME Christmas movie. - Lasvegasxavier

This is technically a Christmas movie. This should be #1. This is a classic. awesome movie!

17 A 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!

18 Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

I think they actually mean this one is #11. - Derpyderpderpderp

Way better than the Mara Wilson version

Why is the remake better than this one? -

Love natilie wood

19 Family Guy Presents: Road to the North Pole

Was a pretty good episode of the show. - BeanBag343

20 Scrooged

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!
