Five Classic, Family Christmas Movies You Need to Watch This Year

I can remember as a kid loving to watch television in the weeks preceding Christmas. That's when all the great Christmas movies began coming on. There were several favorites I loved watching year after year. It's gotten a little more difficult to watch those Christmas classics on television because we don't use cable. So for us, it's searching on Netflix or on Amazon video or pulling out the DVDs of these classics. (I actually enjoy them more this way because they aren't filled with pesky commercials.)


If you're looking to start a new Christmas tradition this year, pick up some of these Christmas classics and establish a Christmas-themed family movie night. Stay up late, have some fun Christmassy snacks, and binge watch classic Christmas movies. Here are some of our favorites.

Even hearing the name of this movie makes me picture the green Grinch and the Whos down in Whoville singing their song. I love this classic and its a good reminder of what Christmas is really all about.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

Not much can beat Linus with his blanket telling everyone the true Christmas story. And there have been years when we could relate to the Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty is another one with a great theme- friendship, love, and sacrifice. And of course, there's Christmas magic as well.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

I think that Rudolph may possibly be my favorite Christmas classic. I love the tale of the spunky little reindeer who hated his difference until it became the one thing that saved Christmas.

A Christmas Story

I think that this classic movie has birthed many great one liners. The story of Ralphie's desire to get a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas and all of his ensuing adventures is a Christmas story that can be watched again and again.
