As promised, I compiled a list of the top 12 best Christmas movies. The reason it's 12 is to coincide with the theme of the 12 days of Christmas. Keep in mind that as with most everything else on my site, this is completely based off my opinion. That means you're going to see some that are a little unconventional when it comes to Christmas. In addition, there may be some movies that some may think should be on here that didn't make the cut. Sorry, but you'll just have to deal with it.
I originally posted a semi-review of each movie on my other site, Keeping It Reel. You can click on any of the movie titles to be magically transported to the comments I made about each respective flick regarding why it made the list...
- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
- Bad(der) Santa
- Santa Claus is Coming to Town
- Friday After Next
- It's a Wonderful Life
- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Family Man
- A Christmas Story
Since the time I first created the list, I had to revise it a little already. I just watched all of "A Christmas Story" for the first time and it replaced "A Preacher's Wife" at number 12. I just couldn't move it up any higher as all of the movies preceding it were just too strong. However, any movie shown on this list is guaranteed satisfaction for Christmas viewing.
