Today’s category is an easy one for me. It’s also one that really doesn’t change much from year to year.  I start taping Christmas movies on Lifetime, Hallmark and INSP as soon as they air so I can watch them ALL year long. I’m a sucker for a happy ending and let’s face it, Christmas movies have happy endings.

So this list could be reallllllllllly long, but I will just keep it to the top 5 MUST watch each and every year movies.

It’s a toss up for me about whether White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Vera Ellen and Danny Kaye or It’s a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Donna Reed is my absolute favorite, but I think I’m leaning towards It’s a Wonderful life!
Which Miracle on 34th street version (the original with Natalie Wood or the remake with Richard Attenborough) is the best? BOTH versions of course!
The Santa Clause with Tim Allen quickly became a favorite – who could resist visiting the North Pole every year?
Now Home Alone is just silly, as is Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase but, they never fail to make me laugh!

I love White Christmas and Christmas Vacation as well as all of the cartoon ones. We also like Christmas Visitor, The Christmas Card, Let It Snow, and a few others that we have seen on Hallmark.


There are some really GREAT Hallmark ones that I watch year after year also and they never seem to run out of ideas for new ones.


I love that I have several of the Hallmark Channel’s – so many cute movies, always a happy ending even if there can sometimes be odd twists to get there!


Great list of Christmas movies! I’ve got to start watching some of them. This year I’ve been trying to catch the little cartoon specials that air every year. Missed Rudolph last night (my son had a music lesson) but I’m excited to watch The Grinch tonight. Even though we have the DVD’s, there’s something special about watching them on “regular” TV to me.


LOL 😀 I’m the same way – it’s like watching them live! I watched Miracle on 34th street over Thanksgiving and the Klaus and Christmas Chronicles with the munchkins on Saturday when they were here.
