Christmas Movies for the Holiday Season

Christmas time can be one of the best times, especially with all of the existing Christmas movies! If you enjoy getting into the Christmas spirit by watching Christmas movies then check out the suggestions below:
  1. How The Grinch Stole Christmas -  With Jim Carrey starring in this film, it makes it hard not to adore this Christmas movie! The movie tells of a story of the Who's in a town called Whoville, all in a snowflake! The Grinch is undeniably cranky and hates the thought of Christmas so much, but all of that changes when he is influenced by the sweet Cindy Lou Who. 
  2. Home Alone - This movie features the adventures of a little boy when he protects his home from burglars when his family accidentally leaves him home during a family vacation. 
  3. Elf -  If your family enjoys laughing until you cry at movies, then this is the perfect movie for you! This movie features an over sized, adult elf that was adopted by Santa and is sent to the U.S. to find out his true identity.
  4. The Polar Express - More suitable for younger audiences, but open to older audiences as well, the movie tells the story of a little boy who goes on a magical adventure to the North Pole on a train called The Polar Express. On his adventure he learns about bravery, friendship and the spirit of Christmas! 
  5. The Muppet Christmas Carol - Adapted from the original Christmas Carol, the comical Muppets tell their own version of the Scrooge.
  6. Frosty The Snowman - This touching movie tells of a little girl and a live snowman named Frosty, who struggles with a musician that is very greedy and is after Frosty's magical hat!
  7. Christmas With The Kranks - One of the most comical Christmas movies, the movie features a family that decides not to celebrate Christmas when they find out that their only daughter is not coming home. However, they go to great lengths to celebrate Christmas at the last minute when they find out that their daughter is coming home after all. 
  8. A Christmas Carol - This movie is an animated version of the classic novel by Charles' Dickens, about a miserable man who despises the Christmas season, as well as everything that comes with it. Because of this, Christmas apparitions take him on a journey that makes him realize that he has to change. 
  9. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - Though this movie is older than the others, it is still a widely adored film, especially among the young ones. A reindeer that gets himself into trouble, along with his friends, searches for a place where they will all be accepted. 
  10. The Christmas Shoes - While this movie is very sad, it is also one of the most touching Christmas movies. The movie features a poor boy who goes out of his way to buy shoes for his dying mother. The movie also features a lawyer that  has to struggle with divorcing his wife.
