Sorry Twilight's, " New Moon " did not make the list, lol

The following movies are based around Christmas. These are my personal movies that I own and enjoy watching during the Christmas season. This list doesn't contain any of those classic cartoon Christmas movies. We all love those classics, like Rudolph and Frosty.

If you think any of these movies should not be on this list or if any movies you think should be on this list, please leave them in the comments.



Here We Go.

#10 The Muppets Christmas Carol. Old Classic with good ol' Mr. Scrooge. Not a big fan of the Muppets though.

#9 The Polar Express with Tom Hanks. I loved the book as a kid, but I wasn't too sure about the animation in the movie. Its a great movie with a great story line though.

#8 The Santa Clause with Tim Allen. Lots of short lived laughs only due to the success of Tim Allen, without him this movie wouldn't be half as good.

#7 Bad Santa with Billy Bob Thornton. Its more a of Dark Comedy Unlike " The Santa Clause " this movie should not be watched by young kids, as this is one bad ass Santa story.

#6 The Nightmare Before Christmas by TIm Burton. Its actually my favorite movie by Tim Burton. Funny story, with lovable characters. Good Christmas film, if it doesn't scare the kids!

My Top 5 Great Christmas Movie Classics

#5 Scrooged with Bill Murray. This guy is just crazy. He is so funny in all of his movies. The classic take of Ebenezer Scrooge and how he almost ruins Christmas.

#4 National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. I love Chevy Chase as Clark Griswald. Tons of laughs as to be expected, as with all the National Lampoons starring Chevy Chase! Good, clean Christmas fun with the Griswalds on vacation.

#3 Home Alone with Macaulay Culkin and Joe Pesci. This was an instant classic. Grossed huge at the box office. What is better then a 12 year old kid fry some really funny burglars? This movie will have you laughing hard!

#2 Elf with Will Ferrell. This movie is super funny. Specially if you like the dumb humor of Will Ferrell. This is most of his best roles yet. Finally a movie he made with a good story line.

MY #1 Favorite...IS NOT A Chistmas Story. You know that movie that plays every Christmas on the TBS channel for the past 25 years. Yea, well, I have watched it enough to know I never want to see it again. lol.So, sorry for all those big fans of this movie but its gotta go, we need something else to watch every Christmas!


The Actual #1 Great Classic Christmas Movie is...



Miracle on 34th Street

This story really gets me in the Christmas spirit. It is not just laughs and all light hearted comedy. It gives us hope that wishes can come true. It's a dark story that will lift anyone's spirits of the holidays. It all started with a chance, and ended with a Miracle.
