December is one of my favorite months of the year. There is so much I love about this month. I love the weather, the ambiance, the food, the music, the Christmas movies, and more. Christmas is one of my favorite celebrations as a Christian. I think it’s a beautiful time for giving and spending time with loved ones.

As someone who loves watching good movies, I can’t let December pass without watching some of my favorite Christmas movies. I have a few must-watch Christmas movies I just have to see every December. I’d say that that is my top 5 favorite Christmas movies.

Besides those movies, I also have some oldies that are always fun seeing again. Movies and animated films from my childhood that bring warm and happy memories.

My top 5 Christmas movies

1 Almost Christmas

This is an entertaining black Christmas movie. I love the story in the movie and the comedy. There is a great balance between humor and some drama. It’s also a fun movie to watch with the family. It might be that I love this movie so much because it’s about a big family and I’m also part of a big family.

2 This Christmas

This is another great black Christmas movie, a bit older than the one mentioned above. It has some great actors in it, a great story with some good humor. I also love the soundtrack from this movie, especially the version of O holy night in the end.

3 The best man Holiday

This movie is part 2 of The best man. I love that even though this movie came out long after part 1, the storyline still makes sense and is just a great story. It has a little plot twist, but I think the balance between the comedy and drama is also pretty great. The story is not about a family, but a group of friends with their families, which is great since friends can sometimes be just like family. Christmas is all about being around loved ones.

4 Just friends

This is a full-on comedy movie and will have you laughing from beginning to end. The story is funny and also a bit realistic. This movie truly is an oldie but goodie.

5 Four Christmases

Four Christmases is another fun comedy movie, but not your typical Christmas story with a big loving family. I love the fact that the story is a bit different than other Christmas family stories. It has a lot of comedy and a bit of drama.


Old Christmas movies that are still fun to watch

1 Christmas with the Kranks

Christmas with the Kranks is a fun movie to watch with the family. It’s a bit different story. I find it very clear in this movie that parents do everything they can to make Christmas the best for their kids, no matter their age.

2 Elf

I’m not a massive fan of Christmas movies with a lot of Santa Claus in them, but this one cracks me up. The character who plays the elf is fun, naïve and says the weirdest things. I love the comedy part of this movie a lot.

3 Eloise at Christmastime movie

This is one of my favorite childhood Christmas movies. I remember watching it with my youngest brother and really enjoying it. It’s a nice movie for your kids to watch but also to enjoy as an adult.

4 Polar express

Polar express is an animated movie, another one of my favorite childhood movies. It’s also about Santa clause, but I love the messages that are in this movie. Messages you can use in all-day life.

5 A Christmas story

A really old movie that was made long before I was born. I think I love this movie because it brings back memories of Christmas morning at home with my brothers in the living room. It’s such a fun movie to watch with the family.

6 Home alone 1 & 2

Of course, everybody knows home alone. Even if I don’t watch the whole movie (which I rarely do anymore), it just brings you in the Christmas vibe once you’ve seen the home alone movies. I like parts 1 &2 much better than the latter parts.

And that’s a wrap. These are some of my favorite must-watch Christmas movies. I hope this list can help you to choose some great Christmas movies to watch these days.

I hope you find the time to spend a lot of time with your friends and family and have a blessed Christmas.

If you have any other fun or beautiful Christmas movie you would suggest watching, feel free to let me know in the comments.
