Best Family Christmas Movies

If you remember, Part 1 of this post was for adults. When reading your comments, it was very difficult not to agree with you on some of your picks. However, I knew I had to reserve the “reveal” of those favorites in this post. Shall we begin? Yes, we shall.

#9. (First of all, who starts with 9?) Rudolph. If you are anywhere near my age (you know, like 23), this was thee show to watch when we were kids.

#8. Jack Frost. My son always likes to watch this each year. It seems like it might be corny, but it’s a good story. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it. Cute!

#7. Polar Express. You just can’t go wrong with this one. Visually, it’s a beautiful movie, and the storyline is pretty incredible. Go see it at the theater if you can. It’s worth it.

#6. Miracle on 34th Street. While the new one is perfectly fine, it’s the original that steals my heart. The behind-the-scenes look at the Thanksgiving Parade combined with the magic of Christmas was a pretty perfect balance. To this day, Edmund Gwenn is my favorite Santa Claus.{source}

#5. Home Alone. I’ve lost track how many times I’ve watched this. It’s that good. Macaulay Culkin was adorably hilarious in it, and that house—still in love with it. Even with all that wallpaper. :)

#4. A Christmas Story. One of the reasons I love this so much? It made my dad crack. up. Don’t get me wrong—it’s hilarious! But watching my dad laugh so hard was priceless.

#3. Jingle All the Way. Surprised? My whole family loves this movie! My husband has a bit of an “Arnold crush”, so we watch anything with him in it. This one is just too good. It’s really funny!

#2. Elf. Man, this was a very hard decision. It could have been #1—easily. There’s so much to say about this movie. I’ll stop at Will Ferrell. He makes any movie funny.

And my #1 family movie of all time??

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

It really was a no-brainer. The humor does not. get. old, and the whole National Lampoon’s series is hilarious. What Clark Griswold goes through is what so many of us go through (on a more normal level, mind you) that we can’t help but appreciate it.

So there you have it! A fantastic list of movies for adults and for kids—if I do say so myself. Enjoy!
