The Top Ten

1 Home Alone

Things to do on xmas vacation
1 watch home alone
2 watch home alone

It's a really good and a loving movie

We seen it almost 100 times but it can take out every time the Christmas spirit - MatrixGuy

My favorite and funniest Christmas movie I have seen. Should be #1 and is.

2 Elf

This movie is a must-watch for me every Christmas. Makes me laugh every time!

This movie is funny watched it many times even in the middle of the summer - trains45

Funniest Christmas movie and my second favorite!

Why is this not #1? Elf is way better than Home Alone! - Kefka

3 It's A Wonderful Life

True meaning of the Christmas spirit, love devotion and family & friends

Very classic American movie

Always my favorite

The ultimate tear-jerker. Beautifully produced and performed.

4 A Christmas Story

A staple at Christmas!

Best Christmas movie. Literally a classic film.

What is it? Never seen it before.

This is one of my least favorite movies ever. Why is it here? This stupid movie is the reason why people stick their tongues to frozen poles. - PandasNGaga

5 National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Watch this every year near Christmas time

Nothings better then this masterpiece

I like a good laugh

Best Ever!

6 The Polar Express

This is one of the first movies that I ever watched. Even after so many years it still continues to be amazing.

The motion capture animation is very beautiful - ElSherlock

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.

7 A Charlie Brown Christmas

Classic for the whole family!


The ending was pretty heartwarming - ElSherlock

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

8 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

This should be number 2 because this unlike other movie sequels is actually good. Better because it also is a Christmas movie.

The best sequel film, not easily achieved but they nailed it with this one.

Have to watch it every year

One of the few sequels that is better than the original.

9 Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

I love this special. A true treasure of the holidays! Along with every other film listed. - NickXH

This is my third favorite Christmas movie and I wish it was the third one.

This was my childhood Christmas movie! - ArcticWolf

Childhood favorite

10 Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Love it makes adults believe in Santa


A classic!

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

The Contenders

11 The Nightmare Before Christmas

Is this a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? - Oliversky

Best Chrismas/Halloween movie

This should be number 1.

I just love the movies that Tim Burton directs along with Edward Scissorhands, Frankinweenie, and Corpse Bride. He is also very well known for his Sleepy Hallow, Beetlejuice, Miss Peregrine, Dumbo, and Alice In Wonderland. - JoMama163

12 Die Hard

Who would have thought that an action film could ever be a true Christmas classic but, Die Hard is definitely in my top 10 of Christmas classics

Not a Christmas movie in the traditional sense, but come on! Who can resist a little Bruce Willis at Christmas?

Now I have a machine gun ho ho ho

And "lethal weapon"...

13 Scrooged

Funny & belongs in the top ten.

My personal favorite- love Bill Murray!

Watch this every year

Definitely a great Christmas movie, checks all the boxes for me!

14 A Christmas Carol (1951)

Great film well worth a watch

Old traditions die hard (no pun intended.)

I won a poetry competition so me and the other winners in my school got to go to Waterstones (british book shop) to have hot chocolate in its cafe (it was delicious! ) and to pick any book. Any. Book. I was going to pick a Harry Potter one, wait no! A Jacqueline Wilson one,... oh! A Rick riordan. Then I saw my friend getting Oliver Twist. I wished I got that book, I asked him if there were any more, and he said no, but there was one like it. That was the original Christmas Carol. This happened yesterday and Iā€™m in love with the book so much, the description, the characters... everything. Thank you, Charles Dickens. - DijaUnicorn

Great story to feel the true meaning of Christmas. Charity, family love and Not greed! love it!

15 The Grinch

It's been my favorite Christmas movie ever since I was little. I love it so, so much. "Where are you Christmas? " Is my favorite Christmas song, too. It has such a good message, too.

Age old Christmas story which demonstrates that Christmas and Christmas spirit isn't just for Christians.

Great movie

Amazing movie - Jim Carrey is amazing

16 How the Grinch Stole Christmas

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

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

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

How is this not in the top 5?

17 The Santa Clause

Absolutely iconic, this version of santa is a LEGEND I watch it every year with my christmas tree

This is the best Christmas movie I never laughed so hard and it is a stand up family fun classic.The north pole was awesome and the elfs were the best.

The North Pole looks beautiful - ElSherlock

Yay I would love to see a 2018 vision of the movie and I would love to see Ashley Taylor Dawson take on the role Scott calvin

18 White Christmas

One of the classics!

Absolutely love the wonderful singing and dancing. Should be Top 5!

Amazing! Singing is timeless and acting is amazing! I will forever love this musical.

This should be top 5 at least! - westofohio

19 Meet Me in St. Louis
20 Gremlins

This film is a classic - ElSherlock

hell yea

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

21 Love Actually

I love this movie so much, it is so emotional and just great. It's always fun watching it.

Everything about it is great

In My own opion one of the best Movies for Christmas! It's a wonderful Movie about love and the Christmas Feelings

I simpy love this movie, and watch it every Christmas!

22 The Shop Around the Corner


23 Miracle On 34th Street

I love both the 1947 version and this one as well.

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

I got suspended during this movie at school :P

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

24 Jingle All the Way

One of the best. - HoldenFanatic

I love this movie so much! It is my family's tradition to start every Christmas season by watching this movie while putting up the tree.

I've seen it like a billion times you can never stop laughing at it. Home alone is very overrated.

Arnold rocks in this movie! - Toptu

25 The Muppet Christmas Carol

Great movie

I love a whole lot of Christmas movies, but the Muppet Christmas Carol is probably the best. With an outstanding cast (Michael Caine! ) the amazing Muppets, a heart warming soundtrack and laugh aloud moments, it's the best movie ever. Staying true to Charles's Dicken's classic but still perfect for all ages... It's the best.

Absolutely outstanding and the best representation of the Dickens classic by a long shot.

Love this one, been watching it for years! - SionicRelations

26 Bad Santa

Not very well known, but without a doubt the most fun I've ever had watching a Christmas movie. It's dark, crude and extremely over the top, and its by far the funniest holiday movie ever made"

I have never laughed so hard in my life! It is hilarious, smart and sweet. Just gets me in the Christmas spirit.

How is this not in the top ten?

This needs to be higher

27 Batman Returns

Tim Burton's Magnum opus

A masterpiece. My favorite Christmas movie (It takes place at Christmas time). - girlcool

How is this christmas

Not really a Christmas movie but still awesome best one in the franchises

28 Holiday Inn

I guess I'm a true traditionalist. Have to add this to the list.

A must see Christmas Movie..

This belongs in the top 10

48th. Should be top 10.

29 Arthur Christmas

I have no shame in saying that this is the best christmas movie of all time.

The animation is great and well made - ElSherlock

I've Got to be honest I didn't really like this film it was good but it was too modern for my liking not a Christmas traditional classic. Just my opinion

This is not just one of the most underrated Christmas movies ever. It's one of the most underrated movies in history.

30 Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Nah mate - 0w0uwu

31 Babes In Toyland

This is a perfect movie to sit down with your kids and grand kids and watch, I am talking about the black and white movie with Laurel and Hardy. Not the newer one, I think the first one was called March of the Wooden Soldiers.

32 Disney's A Christmas Carol

That movie is very good (especially Jim Carey) but scary at the same time, especially the ghost of Christmas yet to come (Future).

Underrated masterpiece - PumpkinKing109

I like some things but hate others. The movie is too dark for Christmas Carol. - iliekpiez

the best - josenaveen

33 Frosty the Snowman

Love this all time classic

The animation is decent - ElSherlock

This should be #1

All time best Christmas movie ever

34 A Christmas Carol (1938)

Love it

Best Christmas movie ever! Watched every Christmas Eve on NYC channel 11 T.V. growing up

35 Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

The stop motion is very appealing to look at - ElSherlock

Great Christmas movie, always gives me Christmas sprit

This needs to be higher up in the list.
It's the origin story of Santa šŸŽ…!

36 The Apartment

Billy Wilder's magnum opus. - DysenteryGary

37 Iron Man 3

Shane Black's magnum opus

If Die Hard can count why not Iron Man 3 count? Same logic given it's set around Christmas time.

If its not about Christmas, its not a Christmas movie. Arkham origins is not a Christmas game either

Very underrated because of the Mandarin twist. It's not really a Christmas movie though

38 The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The most amazing movie ever should so be in the top 10

Some of the "movies" on this list aren't movies at all, or at least not in the traditional sense. I would argue that the 1964 Rudolph, 1965 Charlie Brown and 1966 Grinch are more T.V. specials rather than movies. If you're gonna include them you may as well include the Top Gear specials too.

At least The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a legitimate selection.

It was great. I love how they are doing more of these.

A very enchanting, under-rated Christmas movie.

39 Edward Scissorhands

Watched this in class one time. Fairly good movie! - 0w0uwu

Love love love this Film

40 Fred Claus

Funniest Christmas Film Ever! - DijaUnicorn

41 The Santa Clause 2

Better than the original

42 Deck the Halls

I love this one

Another one rated too low!

43 Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
44 Black Christmas (1974)

Very innovative - ElSherlock

So a good Christmas movie - germshep24

45 Carol (2015)

It has a Christmas setting but the main plot is a lesbian romance between Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett - jezza0

46 I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown

I actually like it better than the Christmas Charlie Brown

Best Movie EVER. Let alone Christmas. I watch this every year. It is so funny and gets the Christmas spirit up. - 19ROXX

This special SUCKS! It's disrespectful to Charles Schultz, who died 3 years before this special was made!

It should be number 1 - 19ROXX

47 Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Best Christmas movie

48 Eight Crazy Nights

This movie is horrendous!

This movie is my least my favourite animated feature - iliekpiez

Apparently full of unfunny crap jokes according to a youtuber I watch - Lunala

49 The Holiday

Very underrated. This is a great one to watch with the SO.

Its just a very sweet Christmas movie

50 A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
