Favorite Christmas Movies to Get You in the Spirit of Christmas!

If you can't tell by now, let me just spell it out for you: I love Christmas, and I love Christmas movies. Here are some of my favorites:


Do you get the fact that I'm obsessed with this movie yet? It's my favorite. If you've never seen it, I feel so sad for your life. Nothing says "Merry Christmas" quite like watching Will Ferrell parade around New York City in yellow tights.

Favorite quote: "You sit on a throne of lies. You don't smell like Santa, you smell like beef and cheese." 

The Grinch. 

This movie never gets old. I always forget how funny it actually is! We watched this after we decorated our tree this year, and we laughed so much. It's a must-watch every December. 

Favorite quote: "Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more." 

The Holiday. 

Jack Black and Jude Law in a heart-warming movie about Christmas? Pass the popcorn and the tissues, please.

Favorite quote: "In the movies, we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason, you're behaving like the best friend."

Home Alone. 

I love Christmas movies that make me laugh--and this one never fails to do that.

Favorite quote: "Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal!"

A Charlie Brown Christmas. 

I cry every time Linus reads the Christmas story.

Favorite quote: "That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

Polar Express. 

I'm not a huge fan of animated movies, but this one is absolutely incredible.

Favorite quote: "Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see." 

What are your favorite Christmas movies?


  1. You hit all of my favorites, lady! I've never seen Polar Express, though! Need to add that to my list.

    I love the Holiday, such an amazing movie!

  2. I love Charlie Brown's Christmas! And can you believe I have never seen Polar Express?? I need to. My Christmas movie favorites are It's A Wonderful Life, and A Muppet's Christmas Carol. Home Alone is a favorite, too!

  3. Yes to all of these!!! Polar Express probably doesn't make my top favorites list but the rest do!! I just love Christmas movies!

  4. All great choices! Some of my other favorites include The Family Stone, It's a Wonderful Life, Little Women, and Christmas with the Kranks

  5. I love Christmas, too. So so so much! I also really love National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I watched it last night.

  6. Great choices! I love Elf and Home Alone. But my favorite is it's a wonderful life.

  7. Christmas Vacation and White Christmas are two of my faves too! Along with your list too!

  8. Oh, my kids watched Elf the other day with me and loved it! I eat up all these movies this time of year, it is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season;)

  9. It's all about Elf. I watch that one year-round!

  13. Elf is one of the best movies ever made. In fact, a couple of years ago when I was severely depressed, Elf was what got me through the holidays. I don't even know how many times I watched it that year.

    To this list I would add Love Actually and It's a Wonderful Life. But otherwise, you got the good ones!

  14. Yes to ALL of these! My favorites are Love Actually, Elf and Home Alone, of course! Happy Holidays pretty lady!

  15. The Polar Express was my favorite Christmas book when I was growing up. I was almost upset when a new movie came out for it - the books are always better.

    I love all those movies too. The scene when Elf goes up the escalator is priceless.

  16. LOOOOVE the holiday. That and Family Stone are two of my favorites!!!

  17. so many good ones! my favorite, along with the holiday, is the family stone. i love a dysfuntional family movie to make my own feel "normal"

  18. My faves are The Holiday (love Jude Law and Kate Winslet is my favorite actress) and Home Alone. So funny and such a classic!

  19. you and my sister are soul-mates. she LOVES holiday movies - all these are on her must watch. haha

  20. All but the Polar Express are my favorite. I thought the movie was a little weird, but I love the book!

  21. I've been watching The Grinch almost every Christmas eve for the past 10 years! I think I'll spice it up this year with Home Alone though. Great list!

  22. YES to your movie choices! We have been watching tons of Elf and Home Alone (1 & 2)!

  23. I love The Holiday!! We tried to rent it to take to the cabin with us last weekend, but they were all out! Bummer...but I found out I can rent it on YouTube Whoop!! Elf always cracks me up. That escalator gif...hahaha and I love when Buddy tries to put the star on the tree. Great list!

  24. Love the grinch! It's my favorite :) My dad and I watch it together because he's obsessed. It's the only Jim Carrey movie he's ever liked.
