Christmas Movie Must Haves

Here's the post that goes with my must have music: must watch movies!!!!  These are the Christmas movies we (my family) watch every single year.  The schedule for the last 4 movies is always the same, our favorite classics.  Starting on December 19th we watch one each day in this order:  It's a Wonderful Life, Holiday Inn, White Christmas and Scrooge.  Click the DVD covers to read more and buy them! :D
Top 4 Favorites
 Holiday Inn (Special Edition)White Christmas (Anniversary Edition)It's a Wonderful Life (60th Anniversary Edition)Scrooge
The Classics - Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town are my favorite old Christmas Classics.  And who can forget the Peanut's Christmas?!
Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerSanta Claus Is Coming to TownA Charlie Brown Christmas
The Santa Clause - These movies are a new-ish classic for Christmas movies, they may be new but they definitely capture the spirit of Christmas and are perfect for young kids.  The first isn't new since its been 16 years, but 2 and 3 are newer.  The third isn't as good as the first two, but its not bad.
The Santa Clause (Widescreen Special Edition)Santa Clause 2 (Widescreen Edition)The Santa Clause 3 - The Escape Clause
Home Alone - Another set of classics, these movies are SO funny, I could watch them every day.  But only the first 2, all the rest stink because they changed the characters and everything. I can't believe it's been 20 years since the first one came out, it makes me feel so old!
Home AloneHome Alone 2: Lost in New York
The Grinch - The Grinch is another classic, I love the cartoon and Jim Carey versions.  A lot of people don't like the Jim version but I find it so funny...haha
How the Grinch Stole ChristmasDr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Widescreen Edition)
Ernest Saves Christmas - This movie is sooo funny (I've been saying that a lot in this post...). Ernest is always getting into trouble and this movie is no different, but as usual he finds a way to save the day.

Bonus: The Twelve Days of Christmas - Here is one movie that we used to watch at my grandma's house that no one really knows about, it is so funny, I haven't seen it in years though because my Grandma got rid of the VHS (I should just buy the DVD)

  4. Ii love the tradition of watching Christmas movies with the family. It's so wonderful. And I can't believe national lampoons Christmas vacation isn't on your list (because it's so funny!)

  5. Wow you're going to watch a lot of movies haha!
    Most of the time I watch a movie who's broadcasted at one of the tv channels.

  6. I love Scrooged - and A Christmas Story - I watch those two on pretty heavy rotation during the holidays.

  7. Excellent round up! I just love holiday flicks. Your list would make quite the movie marathon!

  8. Weird, I have barely seen any of these movies...I remember watching The Santa Clause wayyyyy back in the day (also got a kid's meal from Burger King with a toy "from" the movie), and I like Rudolph. All the others I haven't seen! Bah humbug, I guess, on my part!

  9. Great picks! Have you seen "A Christmas Story?" I've seen it umpteen times! Also, I watch "Love Actually" and "The Holiday" every year, they're great holiday movies.

  13. My family always watches Scrooge. The old black and white one. We know it off by heart by now!

  14. I don't think I have seen any of those! I have to say I'm not big on Christmas stuff... however I DID get to see HP7 the other day, I had my car serviced so had 6 hours to kill, couldn't think of a better excuse to go to the movies!!

  15. Lovely post m'dear - Home Alone films never cease to make me laugh...
    I can't believe how different the little girl from the grinch (taylor momsen) looks nowadays, I was stunned by her transformation when I realised it was her :O

  18. Girl sign me up for The Classics. And the GRINCH!! YAHOOOO!!

    I love all those movies/show/wonderful moments of zoning out like I'm 5 yrs old again.


  19. good, good picks. my fav- the bishop's wife. it's so old and b&w but I love me some cary grant :)

    ♥ Ellen

  23. White Christmas, I'll be watching that one!! =)

  24. Haha Home Alone always cracks me up, no matter how many times I have seen it!

  25. rudolph!!!!!! id say it is my number 1 christmas movie, always has been and always will be! :)


  26. Just last year I saw Holiday Inn and White Christmas for the first time. They're wonderful! I'm surprised it took me so long to see Holiday Inn because I've always loved both Crosby and Astaire. You might like Christmas in Connecticut, it's an old classic with Barbara Stanwyck - it's cute, sweet and quite funny in the old screwball way. (:

  27. great post! i want the entire second row!

  28. Home Alone.. what a great movie..
    I would watch again..

  29. The Grinch and Home Alone's are some of my favourites :)

    I also love Christmas with the Kranks :)

  30. Home Alone!! :D Great post and thank you for your lovely comments!

  31. There is no Christmas without the "Home Alone," but I prefer "A Christmas Carol" ... I love it.

  32. Eeep! Love this list. Especially Home Alone.

  33. Ohhh. But I forgot! The Muppet version of A Christmas Carol is pretty much the greatest classic ever.

  34. Ahh I can't wait for Christmas now!
