To add some fun into our Home for the Holidays week, we thought we’d ask YOU to share your favorite things about the holidays! On each site, we’ve got a question we’d like you to answer. Share your thoughts here in the comments, and then hop to the other sites to find out what we’d like to know!


Movies are one of my absolute favorite things about the holidays. Cornball or prolific, there aren’t many Christmas flicks I won’t watch.

My favorite? It’s a toss-up. I do love me some Elf, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and A Christmas Carol (the George C. Scott version is my fave). But if I could only watch one movie this Christmas, it’d have to be It’s a Wonderful Life. Both funny and profound, you can’t help but watch Jimmy Stewart and reflect on the value of your own life. It’s wonderful, indeed.

So that’s my question for you today: What’s your all-time favorite holiday movie?

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts—maybe I’ll find some new movies to watch this year!

  1. It would have to be White Christmas. I love that movie and we have watched it every year since I was little. My sis and I used to grace our family with our own rendition of the song “Sisters” from the movie. I’m just sure they loved that. Ahem.

  2. Every year on Christmas Eve my family watches the original Grinch cartoon. We practically have the entire thing memorized by now! My personal favorites for Christmas are While You Were Sleeping and You’ve Got Mail. Maybe those aren’t seen as “traditional” Christmas movies, but I just can’t help myself. ;)

  3. White Christmas, for sure! Unfortunately, I haven’t watched it in several years…will have to remedy that this year!

  4. I like the ones above, but I have to say my new favorite is Shop Around the Corner. It’s the movie You’ve Got Mail is based on, and it’s Jimmy Stewart working in a Hungarian gift shop in the 40s. It’s set at Christmastime and it’s funny and perfectly vintage. He and the shop girl he fights with at work are unknowingly exchanging letters with each other, and it all leads up to Christmas Eve, when they decide they are going to reveal their identities. It’s too cute.

  5. hands down, hands down, hands down…LITTLE WOMEN!

  6. Oh Fudge, it’s gotta be A Christmas Story!

  7. Christmas in Conneticut is a favorite!

  8. I think my favorite is the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. It is so funny and makes me smile every time I think of some of the scenes in it.

  9. Ahhhhh. Our kinship is restored. ;-)

  10. The Santa Clause, I seriously watch it in July sometimes :)

  11. Mine is ELF, but Arthur Christmas looks good too!

  12. Well, I am a bit of a Christmas movie connoisseur and have some very unique favorites. My all-time favorite is a made-for-television movie from the 70s that has just been released for the first time on DVD, “The Gathering” starring Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton (sorry, don’t know how to italicize titles in comments so please excuse the quotes). It’s so real and warm and our family loves it so much we can recite every line (received it as a gift along with our new VCR back in about 1987!). I also love “The Christmas Child” starring Megan Follows and William R. Moses (an adaptation of a Max Lucado story) as well as “Noelle,” a wonderful 2007 film starring David and Kerry Wall. In terms of classic Hollywood films, we have really enjoyed a sweet little film called “Holiday Affair” starring Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh, and always like watching “Meet Me in St. Louis” around this time of year because much of the latter part of the film is set around Christmastime. But the film we now watch every Christmas Eve after church is “The Nativity Story” (2006) because it really brings home the true reason for the season. Merry Christmas (early!) to all of you and thanks for all the work you do here–it’s a wonderful site!

  13. It’s A Wonderful Life…I watch it every year on Christmas Eve. Last year, my daughter stayed up and watched it with me.

  14. My all time favourite Christmas Movie is Miricle on 34th Street. My son watched it for the first time this year but I have to say, he still prefers Micky’s Once Upone A Christmas.
    Happy Holidays

  15. Top 1 would definitely be It’s a Wonderful Life. Next is Miracle on 34th Street (with Mara Wilson) and also Little Women (with Winona Ryder).

    White Christmas!!! It has become such a big part of our holiday season. We quote it year round. My husband and I both grew up watching it every year and we both love it!

  17. Ditto Little Women- love that movie. As a kid I loved the Home Alone movies. I also usually watch these modern Christmas-ish movies (not for little kids) this time of year: The Family Stone, The Family Man, and Stepmom.

    • I agree–The Family Stone is the only movie I watch EVERY year at this time. But there are a couple parts I’m not crazy about.

    • Cortney,
      I love the movie Stepmom. It makes me cry every time. I was in the gym one day watching it while on the elliptical trainer and listening with headphones, trying not to just bawl. I bet people were looking at me like “what is wrong with her?”.

  18. Definitely It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s not only my favorite Christmas movie, but one of my top three favorite movies of all time.

    • Me too! Weird that a Christmas movie is one of my all time favorites, but it’s so profound and human all at once. Other favorites from the Christmas category are Mirical on 34th Street and It’s Christmas Charlie Brown (the original). Others are good, but these are the BEST!

  19. For a great laugh (no matter how many times I watch it) I love Elf. A tad more serious but one that I love is Family Man. While I find Nicholas Cage to typically be a little bit corny in his acting I really enjoy him in this movie.

    As a kid growing up my sister and I would always watch Prancer, any time of year actually. We seriously loved it! I bought it a few years ago from the $5 bin at Walmart and sadly it wasn’t as good as I remembered, but nonetheless fun to relive the memories of my childhood.

    • I remember Prancer as a kid, and then yes, I saw it later as an adult. Not nearly as good as I remembered. ;) I think that’s the case for lots of movies.

  20. Nothing beats the Charlie Brown Christmas.

  21. my favorite movie that most people would think of as a christmas flick is ELF, but every christmas for years my family (parents, brother & SIL, and our family of 8) watch HIGH ANXIETY, a Mel Brooks film from the 70’s. It’s cheesy and not a great movie by any standards, nor is it one many people have even heard of, but it’s our family’s Christmas movie and we love it. Really love it! We quote it all year long. As a side note, it’s totally not an appropriate movie for kids and usually I’m pretty careful with what our 6 kids watch, but this is the exception. It’s what we do and even though on any other day of the year I would freak out if someone sat my kids down in front of a similar movie, it all gets ignored for our family viewing of High Anxiety. The older kids (12, 10 & 9) are actually starting to get it and think it’s funny too. Actually the little ones get bored, since it doesn’t capture their attention and so they wander away after about 5 minutes. That’s our Christmas movie story!!

  22. My two favorite “lesser known” movies are:

    A Muppet Family Christmas (1987)- You can’t go wrong when you get the Muppets, Sesame Street and the Fraggles together for the holidays!!!

    And the other honorable mention: In the Nick of Time (made for TV 1991)- Santa has to retire and searches for his replacement in NYC.

  23. There is no way I can pick just one. These all have to be watched at Christmas at our house:
    The Nativity
    It’s a Wonderful Life (I’m the only one who loves this.)
    Elf
    White Christmas
    All the cartoon classics like Rudolf, Frosty, etc.

  24. I forgot Home Alone. Our 9yo loves it!

  25. I LOVE It’s a wonderful life we watch it every year.

  26. A Charlie Brown Christmas is my favorite. Sweet, profound, funny -it’s the best. And it brings back so many great memories from growing up.

  27. White Christmas, Elf, The Santa Clause are the traditional Christmas movies I love. I try to watch The Holiday around this time of year too.

  28. Southern Gal mentioned it above, but my favorite Christmas movie is The Nativity. Our family watches it together every year — what a wonderful way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas!

  29. My favorites are It’s a Wonderful Life, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Christmas Story. It’s a Wonderful Life is so good- it always makes me cry.

    My traditional favorite is ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. My non-traditional favorite is ‘Little Women’. I had a friend introduce this movie to me around Christmas time and ever since I always watch it around the holidays on a cold night while eating hot chocolate pudding.

    annabelle says:

    The Nativity and Miracle on 34th Street but I do love a number of others. thanks :)

  32. A Miracle on 34th Street has been a favorite of mine since I was a child.

  33. I like my Elf, but my favorite would have to be It’s a Wonderful Life. I watch it every year. I have gotten to the point it doesn’t seem like Christmas without watching it once. As many times I have watched it, it still brings a tear to me in the beginning when Mr. Gower slaps the side of George’s head, on his bad ear.

  34. I enjoy “You’ve Got Mail” and the movie it was based on “The Shop Around the Corner” with Jimmy Stewart. The original is so darling. And, in this economy, I think we can relate to a few of the characters even more.

    And, each Christmas eve we watch White Christmas.

  35. Daddy thinks my favourite film is Mickey’s once upon A Christmas, but I’ve grown up, I’m now three. My favourite Christmas film is acutely Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas. Silly Daddy! The Nursery Times Times

  36. I can’t believe no one has mentioned our all-time favorite: The Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine is the best Scrooge ever and the music is fabulous. The script is straight from Dickens (“…as solitary as an oyster…”) but with Gonzo narrating. I cry every time I watch it.

    • YES! I kept reading down the list wondering why no one mentioned the Muppets’ Christmas Carol! I also insist on seeing the Claymation Christmas Celebration annually. Gotta love those singing camels, skating walrus/panicked penguin section and the California Raisins with an added running joke about wassailing. And the bell choir….

      • I bet we’re a similar age as I love the claymation and Muppet chirstmas carol also. Haven’t seen claymation in a while may need to check out youtube tonight. Two others that haven’t been mentioned; scrooged and love actually.

    • YES! I love this version of A Christmas Carol. Such a hoot! Love the part where the rats land in the snowbank.

    • ABSOLUTELY! I was checking to see if anyone else was going to mention this Muppet classic of a classic! I enjoy various forms of the Christmas Carol story, but I truly think this one is just superb! It is funny and touching and has great music! Another version that is very close to my heart from my childhood is Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol — also some great music in that one. And yes, It’s a Wonderful Life tops my list. I remember, as a teenager, sitting down to watch it on TV for the first time. My Dad asked what I was going to watch and I told him, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” He said, “oh, that’s a good one,” and he sat down to join me. I remember both of us crying at the end — it was such a sweet moment!

    • I love the Muppet Christmas Carol, they do an awesome job. But I also love every version of A Christmas Carol. From Patrick Stewart to George C Scott to Jim Carrey, and even Bill Murray in Scrooged! I love them all!

  37. “White Christmas” is my favorite. We watch it every year, and have done so for as long as I can remember.

  38. I’d have to say Elf!

  39. It’s a Wonderful Life! But for a change of pace, my kids really like the old animated film The Snowman.

    • Oh, yes, “The Snowman” is also a true gem — love, love, love!

    • Just looked at the link you put up. I began doing this when my now 11 year old was about 3 or 4 and, yes, we still do it every year. We celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah and so I have books for both. As she got older I pulled out certain books and brought in new ones, but some will always be there. Also, my family has gradually moved to using almost all festive fabric swaths for gift wrapping — I use fabric ribbons to tie the fabric on — and we have been re-using this wrapping for years now. I use the fabric for our holiday books as well!

  40. I too love a Muppet Christmas Carol but my sentimental favorite is White Christmas, Grandma loved musicals! But with so many recommendations for Elf maybe I will try that one this year.

  41. One of my proudest moments as a step-mom was when I introduced “It’s a Wonderful Life” to my then 12 year old stepdaughter. I got sleepy and couldn’t stay awake to watch all of it but she stayed up until the very end, mesmerized. We are recording it on TiVo this weekend (it’s scheduled for Saturday or Sunday) and we will watch it together when she stays with us next weekend. I love that movie.

  42. I didn’t read to see if it was already listed, but DEFINITELY “Christmas in Connecticut” !!!!

  43. 1951’s A Christmas Carol, starring Alaster Sim… this is the *only* one, according to my family. (We’d read Dicken’s Christmas Carol every year, too, which I appreciate now, but at the time, just listened to get the hot chocolate and sit by the fire.) I can’t wait to bore my girls with reading A Christmas Carol this year! …”Marley was as dead as a door-nail…”

  44. Charlie Brown Christmas
    God Rock’s, Rockabye Christmas (great songs!)
    Hermie and Friend’s Christmas
    12 Dogs of Christmas
    Rudolph 1 and 2
    The Santa Clause’s 1,2,3
    Miracle on 34th

    These are a few of our favorite things……………………..Oh and Sound of Music!!!

  45. I’d have to add “Family Man” and “Preacher’s Wife” to the other favorites listed!

    Oh, I don’t know! I always try to watch some version of “A Christmas Carol.” I like Patrick Stewart’s version, and The Muppets, and Jim Carrey’s was pretty sweet, too. “The Muppet’s Christmas Carol” is probably my favorite, though, because it’s so musical!

    Speaking of musical, and since so many comments are talking about You Got Mail and Shop Around the Corner, might I suggest the film “In the Good Old Summertime?” It’s the same story, but with Judy Garland. I’ve only seen snippets of it, but it does have a Christmas/winter backdrop. To be honest, I think it’s inferior to the other two films, but it’s still a cute little version of the same story :)

    Johanna S. says:

    Gosh, there are too many to name!

    I agree with loving A Muppet Family Christmas. I watched it when I was little and LOVED it. But I can’t seem to find it for a reasonable price anywhere. :(

    Other than that, I also love:

    *A Christmas Story
    *Christmas Vacation–used to be a Christmas Eve tradition to watch this but, now that I have a 2yo, we might have to find something a little more child-friendly. lol
    *Christmas in Connecticut–so funny and so romantic
    *Miracle on 34th Street
    *The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
    *The Homecoming (what the TV show “The Waltons” was based on)
    *It’s a Wonderful Life
    *All of the cartoons, TV shows that are on each year

    I could go on and on! :)

  48. I just love One Magic Christmas, a 1985 film starring Mary Steenburgen as a mom struggling to make ends meet and losing her faith in the Christmas spirit. I still tear up every time at the end. Sniff. It is an under-appreciated classic.

  49. Hands down, no contest, “It’s a Wonderful Life”.

  50. “Silent Night” with Linda Hamilton (2005): based on a true story of a Christmas Eve in Germany in 1944. So good! Would be good for kids too!

  51. I love Elf, but my very favorite is probably The Bishop’s Wife. It is an older movie, with a sweet message.

  52. I absolutely love “A Christmas Story”, Jim Carrey’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. I watch them all every year.

    My husband LOVES “Home Alone”….even as an adult the slapstick comedy cracks him up. It’s so funny to watch him watch that movie. “)

  53. That’s funny because my favorite is Elf, but a close second is It’s A Wonderful Life!

  54. I agree with you…A Wonderful Life is my favorite movie ever! Another one with a similar theme, but more modern setting, is The Family Man. I love that movie too!

    Cathy Essick says:

    Christmas Vacation and Elf. I don’t care how many times I’ve watched them, they still make me laugh!

  56. White Christmas, Elf, & National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation:)!!!

  57. I love the Polar Express. I love every cheesy romantic holiday movie on Lifetime and Hallmark. My all time favorite though is a little cartoon called Twas The Night Before Christmas.

  58. No question that it is “Christmas Vacation” because it never ceases to entertain me and make me laugh.

  59. One of my favorites that isn’t necessarily a Christmas movie, but is set at Christmas, is While You Were Sleeping.

  60. Such a tough question….A very Brady Christmas (which I own on VHS) is my most favorite movie but I also love Love Actually, Holiday Inn, It’s a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Elf, Christmas Vacation, the Old Version of Miracle on 34th Street…..there are very few holiday films I don’t like :)

    Bonnie Jean says:

    Without a doubt, “It’s A Wonderful Life” is my number one. I do however love the newer “The Nativity Story” where they illustrate the reality of Mary’s choice to accept God’s plan for her life… the possible consequence of being stoned… the difficult reality of traveling while pregnant through the wilderness to Bethlehem… and also how it must have felt for Joseph… it just made it so much more “real” to me. It was always an important part of our Christmas in the reading of the story in the Bible… but this makes you think about the human parts and helps you put yourself in the shoes of those real life people. Also the choices the wise men made and how long ahead of time they were waiting… and in pagan lands… so much for such a short movie. But well done.

  62. Scrooged starring Bill Murray, Trapped in Paradise starring Nicolas Cage, & Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan.

  63. Love Actually!!! So romantic, yet quirky. Absolute favorite.

    • I love this one too, but half the story threads are so sad! Especially the cheating husband, the mentally unstable brother, and the guy in love with his best friend’s wife. Leave it to the Brits to give us realistic stories we don’t want to hear during Christmas!

    • You have got to be kidding me!? I watched Love Actually last night based on the people who mentioned it here….and was sooooooo thankful that my kids were out! Never mind the content (hardly appropriate for under 18), but it wasn’t even a Christmas Movie.

    • Love Actually is one of my favorites as well. Although it isn’t a typical family Christmas movie that is actually what I like about it. There are tons of Christmas movies aimed at children but I like one that is a little more grown up.

      As for a movie for the whole family I would say Elf or we actually watched Santa Clause is Coming to Town last night and I found myself able to quote it, so I guess I really love that one too!

  64. Okay, neither of these are traditional Christmas movies but my two favorites are “Little Women” (it starts with a Christmas; and I remember when I was 12 and my aunt took me to see it on Christmas Day when it opened) and “Love, Actually”.

    Anne Marie says:

    By far, my favorite is Muppets Christmas Carol! :) I am a sucker for “Lite the Lamp not the rat! LIGHT THE LAMP, NOT THE RAT!” hahahaha, maybe that is going to be movie night on Friday now…

  66. My all-time favorite is The Bishop’s Wife. It has something for everyone (but Cary Grant is all mine!) and some Christmas magic, too. Newer faves are Home Alone (I absolutely loved the little Macauley Culkin!) and Love Actually.

  67. I also watch “It’s A Wonderful Life” on Christmas Eve every year. Its always moved me, but now that I have kids I cry every time.

  68. Hard to choose. I always watch Wonderful Life, but then I’ve already watched Love Actually this year…

  69. I love Home Alone! And While You Were Sleeping! I’ve watched those two so many times that I know them by heart:) My childhood fav was Frosty the Snowman. I LOVE Christmas!! :)

    Lauren Nicole says:

    If I could only watch one thing during the Christmas Season it would be the Santa Claus is Coming to Town animated TV special (1970, sung by Fred Astaire). But, I like to also find time to watch Elf, Christmas Vacation and White Christmas (at least).

  71. I have 2- White Christmas and Holiday Inn- Holiday Inn isn’t necessarily a Christmas movie it just begin’s and end’s there. It is where the main music for White Christmas came from, it also has Bing Crosby.Such good movies!

  72. avatar
    Jen from KY says:

    Joyeaux Noel about the Christmas Eve Truce in WW I – not necessarily a kid movie – but wonderful, moving and a true story of a Christmas miracle

  73. I guess I am really going to be showing my age but along with It’s a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, and all the others that have been mentioned I think my favorite would have to the The Bishop’s Wife with David Niven and Loretta Young. Oh and of course Cary Grant. Such a great movie and if you haven’t seen it, you really should.

  74. George C Scott IS the superior Scrooge! Picture perfect, flawless movie. I love tons of others, from Elf to Four Christmases to While You Were Sleeping to White Christmas to It’s A Wonderful Life to A Christmas Story…I could go on and on! Miracle on 34th Street, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Holiday Inn…

  75. i have quite a few:
    i’s a wonderful life
    miracle on 34th street (natali wood)
    the bishop’s wife
    the snowman
    beyond Christmas (a real oldie)
    the bells of st. mary’s
    Christmas in connecticut
    a Christmas carol (starring patrick stewart 1999 best scrooge ever)
    but my absolute favorite is meet john doe (barbara stanwyck, gary cooper)

  76. There isn’t one I won’t watch. I have so many on DVD and watch them anytime the mood strikes year-round. My favorite, for childhood nostalgia is Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. My 4 year old loves it, too! White Christmas is another list-topper. I’ll admit I’ve never seen It’s a Wonderful Life…

  77. I actually have 2 favorite movies for the holidays “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” because maybe, just maybe Christmas Doesn’t Come From A Store. Too bad most people think that it does.

  78. Love, love, love It’s a Wonderful Life!! It’s not about how much money you have but about the people that you share your life with. <3

  79. We love watching a Year Without a Santa Claus – we love singing “I’m Mister Heat Miser” and laughing at the hair. The Grinch cartoon and of course Fred Astaire in Santa Claus is coming to town with the winter warlock. Love sharing these classics with the kids :)

    Leslie Hosterman says:

    So many great holiday movies! My two favorite classics: It’s a Wonderful Life and Santa Claus is Coming to Town (claymation); My two fave contemporary: Scrooged and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Clark, is Rusty still in the Navy?! Love it!

  81. My favorite is White Christmas!

  82. Wow, so many favorites! But my #1 favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”). I haven’t seen anyone mention the animated Olive, the Other Reindeer, but it is truly a funny movie that parents and kids can enjoy together.

  83. Like so many others, I absolutely love Elf! We fall over laughing. I also love Charlie Brown’s Christmas and Linus’ soliloquy from Luke. I do have another favorite, though, from my own childhood and it is Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol (with razzleberry dressing:) It’s a musical and pretty true to the original story.

  84. I love the movies you mentioned and they are all top-notch favorite holiday viewing for my family. A new film that I discovered three or four years ago is called The Hogfather by Terry Pratchet. Like It’s a Wonderful Life, it is comical and profound but has a distinct other-worldly feel. The first year I watched it, I found myself thinking that I was not so sure if I like this film. But year after year, it has really grown on me. (Vaguely reminds me of my experience with first eating sushi.) I hope you get a chance to watch it. Magical.

  85. Hmm, I’ll have to go non-traditional because, if I’m being honest, I have to admit I’ve never seen any of the holiday classics like “It’s a Wonderful Life.” My favorites for Christmas are “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and, in recent years, “The Family Stone.”

  86. White Christmas! I remember just being so amazed with all the singing and dancing when I was little.

    Jaclyn Ley says:

    It’s not just a holiday movie, but I always enjoy watching Little Women!

  88. I could watch Elf year-round (and sometimes do), I love it that much! I also love a Christmas Story. The Nativity Story has also become a favorite…minus some cheesy parts (especially their depiction of the angel Gabriel), I think it is a beautiful movie about the birth of Christ.

  89. It’s a Wonderful Life is my top pick, but I also like Holiday Inn (right, the Bing Crosby one?). Since we’ve recently moved to New England, I’ll have to check out Christmas in Connecticut!

  90. White Christmas. Love the songs!

    Or maybe An Affair To Remember (sniff, sob).

  91. I love It’s A Wonderful Life. I cry every time. We also love watching the Grinch cartoon and the Charlie Brown Christmas.

    I’ll have to seek out the Muppet Christmas Carol this year. I’m sure I haven’t seen it for many many years!

  92. I love Christmas movies, even the cheesy ones. White Christmas is my favorite!

  93. I love A Christmas Story, but in recent years I have also grown fond of an old version of A Christmas Carol from 1951 with Alastair Sims. They both really get me into the holiday spirit.

  94. Nothing beats It’s a Wonderful Life. Sitting by the fire, watching the movie and sipping peppermint hot cocoa is a long time family tradition of mine.

  95. Muppet’s Christmas Carol. I just love the songs!

  96. so many great ideas! I have to say- probably the #1 is It’s a Wonderful Life

    The Nativity Story is really good as well

  97. avatar
    Jane Miller says:

    No question…Christmas in Connecticut is my go-to Christmas movie…humorous and romantic!! Love it!

  98. It’s a Wonderful Life,
    Charlie Brown Christmas,
    All the old cartoons (Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, etc),
    The Holiday (I watch this one after kiddie bed times…
    And we just watched Elf for the first time… I can see that becoming a tradition!
    The Nativity

  99. This was a great idea! Most of the old ones that were previously mentioned are among my favorites too but I have never seen Elf and it seems like I must now.

    I love love love Love Naturally for a movie and The Little Drummer Boy as one of the TV specials from my childhood that still makes me cry with its simple but poignant message.

  100. All-time Fave: “Holiday Inn”

    I have great memories of watching it with my sister!

Speak Your Mind
