Yes Elf is amazing. Love Actually is another favorite. The Santa Clause is my favorite from childhood that I still always watch now. Also in the realm of made-for-tv Christmas movies, for some reason I’m obsessed with ABC Family’s 12 Dates of Christmas. It’s been on Netflix forever and its delightful.

It’s a wonderful life.

Jingle all the way

As much as I dislike Will Farrell in general, Elf is a cute movie. 

A Muppet Christmas  Carol! So good.

Home Alone 1 and 2, Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, Elf & It’s A Wonderful Life are staples for us. The Christmas season isn’t officially underway til I’ve watched the first Home Alone!

Also: 

the Christmas animated specials I grew up with – Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Frosty the Snowman, Garfield’s Christmas, and of course The Grinch

Christmas With The Cranks (love Jamie Lee Curtis, not usually a Tim Allen fan but he’s very likeable in this)

Krampus (a darker Christmas movie, nice way to bridge Halloween and Christmas season alongside the lighter Nightmare Before Christmas). 

If you’re in a lighter fare chick-flick mood, Four Christmases and The Holiday and Just Friends are decent

And a thought-provoking bittersweet fave of mine, Family Man with Tea Leoni and Nicolas Cage

The Family Stone

Gremlins, love it for the Christmas content and 80s flashback

And I’m a huge fan of Friends, so a lazy afternoon wrapping Christmas gifts and watching the Christmas episodes from all the seasons is on my ‘to do’ list

We do the classics like it’s a wonderful life (agree re young Jimmy), miracle on 34th, and then love actually, bad santa, and home alone, nat’l lampoon, and Christmas with the kranks.

Fiance will also find any Christmas love movie on lifetime or AMC as fall asleep tv – he absolutely loves Christmas.

Elf is great! Also love the Family Man, even though not a big Cage fan. I also used to really like Mickey’s Christmas Carol.

Can’t beat Home Alone 1 & 2 OR Charlie Brown. ๐Ÿ™‚

B&W- The Bishop’s Wife and its wonderful remake “The Preacher’s Wife” (one of Whitney Houston’s Best, luminous and a FABULOUS musical score)

Christmas In Connecticut -I also love the 1992 remake, same title with Dyan Cannon
