The Top 10 Christmas Movies + Some More

T'is the season to be...well anyways if you find yourself between the better option of reading and with too much time on your hands you can watch some of these classic Christmas Holiday Movies. The Top 10 Christmas Movies to watch are mostly for kids. Although they'll moan and groan over a few of the b/w choices, the top pick will always be “It's A Wonderful Life.” After that, the rest are all kid favorites!
1.It's a Wonderful Life - (1946) James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore
2.Miracle on 34th Street - (1947) Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara, and Natalie Wood
3.A Christmas Story - (1983) Darrin McGavin, Melinda Dillon, and Peter Billingsley
4.Christmas Vacation - (1989) Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, and Randy Quaid

10.The Nightmare Before Christmas - (1993) Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara

If the Top 10 grows tiresome and you are looking for more holiday cheer the following movies might also brighten your mood and lift those work weary spirits. Nothing beats the classics!

11.The Miracle of the Bells - (1948) Fred MacMurray, Frank Sinatra, and Lee J. Cobb
12.A Christmas Carol - (1938) Reginald Owen, Gene Lockhart, and Leo G. Carroll
13.White Christmas - (1954) Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney
14.Holiday Inn - (1942) Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Marjorie Reynolds
15.The Bishop's Wife - (1947) Cary Grant, Loretta Young, and David Niven
16.Christmas in Connecticut - (1945) Barbara Stanwyck, Reginald Gardiner, and S.Z. Sakall

And finally there are just so many made for TV Christmas movies that are really good, I'd just suggest that you plug in your Chromecast dongle and go to YouTube and search for Christmas Movies, you're sure to find something to enjoy. Sometimes, it's even better when you discover something new for yourself.

These last two suggestions are better than most made for TV movies.

17.The Homecoming: A Christmas Story - (1971) Patricia Neal, Richard Thomas, and Edgar Bergen
18.A Christmas Without Snow - (1980) Michael Learned, and John Houseman

Another suggestion is to create a YouTube Playlist and search and tag all of your favorite Christmas Cartoons, then play them any time you like. There's more there than what you'll ever be able to sit and watch, but it's a better idea than watching regular TV programming. No Commercials-Yea!

Here's wishing you all the best of times and may you have the happiest of holidays.
