There are so many great Christmas movies to choose from so here at Lovable Labels we’ve narrowed it down for you with what we’ll be watching over the holiday season!
10. Jingle All the Way, 1996: This movie gets a bad reputation for focusing more on comedy than tradition and showing the true misery of the holiday shopping season, but that’s exactly what makes this movie clever and entertaining. It has several quotable lines and is a fun movie to watch with family or friends.
9. The Dog Who Saved Christmas, 2009: This movie premiered during an ABC Family programming block which featured a Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas, and ended up with 4.0 million viewers. A fresh take on a classic tale, the plot is similar to Home Alone but with the family dog Zeus as the hero who protects his home from burglars.
8. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, 1964: In this stop-motion animation narrator Sam the Snowman tells the tale of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, who with Hermey the Elf and other Misfit Toys teach us to the importance of our differences. A perfect holiday movie for cozying up or playing while you decorate the tree!
7. The Polar Express, 2004: A fantastical adventure tale based on the beloved book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg. This movie’s exciting to watch and has a whimsical take on common Christmas themes and folktales.
6. The Santa Clause, 1994: Who doesn’t want to know what it’s like to be Santa Clause? Tim Allen’s hilarious and endearing portrayal of man who reluctantly finds out first hand just what a difficult job it is to be the big guy at the North Pole, makes this movie memorable.
5. Nightmare Before Christmas, 1993: A movie that works for two Holidays! This movie has a truly unique take on holiday celebrations and how they come to realization, tied together with catchy tunes. An unlikely classic which made Tim Burton a household name and changed the way people considered the potential of cartoons.
4. A Charlie Brown Christmas, 1965: A staple of Christmas movies, with artful animation, music, Charlie Brown and the rest of the cast of unlikely friends who learn what Christmas is all really about.
3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, 1989: Big laughs and relatable family shenanigans make this movie high on the list for holiday favorites. It gives everyone around the television a good chuckle to go with their hot chocolate.
2. It’s a Wonderful Life, 1946: The movie or the play, we love both! This story puts everyone in the perfect holiday mood of being grateful and measuring life not in our accomplishments but in the love of our family and friends.
Drum roll…..The number one spot goes to….
1. Home Alone, 1990: A classic and a favorite of all of us at Lovable Labels. A movie with a unique plot, witty comebacks and truly memorable characters, what’s not to love?
