Please note that this list is subjective.

Also note, we strongly suggest watching the movies them with a hot drink, warm blankets and good company.

  1. Elf (2003) starring Will Ferrell
    This beautiful coming-of-age story portrays the loss and value of childhood innocence. As a result, Elf has been a contender for this list since the moment it was released.  The story revolves around a misidentified elf attempting to reintegrate himself into human society and find his parents.  Will Ferrell’s performance is just the icing on this Christmas cake.
  1. Home Alone (1990) starring Macaulay Culkin
    A movie so successful that it spawned a trilogy, Home Alone features the ever-witty Kevin McCallister and his defense against a duo of thugs.  It’s a feel-good story about being resolute in the face of daunting adversaries while conquering those them through wit alone. Home Alone embodies the traits we hold dear in society.
  1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
    A relic from a bygone age where color did not exist, It’s a Wonderful Life speaks to all those who sacrifice for the sake of others and their struggle to stay whole. It’s a Wonderful Life follows George Bailey and the impact he has made on the lives of those around him. Although it deviates from the comedic theme of the previous movies, It’s a Wonderful Life is not a movie to overlook this Christmas season.
  1. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
    It may not seem like a Christmas movie, but don’t let the characters fool you. The Nightmare Before Christmas shows that everyone can grow a heart, including skeletons.  The story follows Jack Skellington as he tries to introduce a new holiday and ends up ruining everything.  Whether or not he has a change of heart is the question that leaves us on the edge of our seats.
