1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

James Stewart and Donna Reed’s classic is a must-see on any list of holiday movies. Introduce your children to this timeless tale.

2. A Christmas Story (1983)

Ralphie wants nothing more than a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. This 1940s family is hilarious. Ralphie’s irritable father, whiny brother, and American mother will make you laugh. A Christmas Story is one comedy you won’t want to miss if you’ve ever tried to lick a frozen telephone pole or donned a ridiculous bunny costume on Christmas morning.

3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is the best Christmas-themed comedy ever made. The film is more than just a seasonal flick; it is one of those rare comedies that is near perfect from beginning to end. With some of the best one-liners in comedy, this film will have you reciting its dialogue for many Christmases to come.

4. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

Gonzo as Dickens? What could possibly go wrong? This lighthearted, humorous version is a great introduction to Charles Dickens’ classic story.

5. The Santa Clause (1994)

While every child dreams of going to the North Pole, how many can say that their father is Santa? Watch Tim Allen become Santa.

6. Elf (2003)

Who could be more fun to watch than a six-foot-tall elf? Will Farrell is outstanding in his performance and the concept of an Elf on the loose in New York City makes this a Christmas classic.

7. Christmas With The Kranks (2004)

Based on John Grisham’s best-selling novel Skipping Christmas, Christmas With The Kranks resembles the book in almost every facet save for the title. With hilarious scenes after hilarious scenes, Christmas With The Kranks is one of the funniest comedies in years, and certainly one of the top ten Christmas comedies ever.
