The Best Christmas Movies of All Time
A great Christmas movie can make for a great evening of holiday fun. We’ve included some obvious ones in this list, but also a few you might not have heard of. And don’t be afraid of the classics—even if they are in black and white! We’ve included links to the watch it now versions if you’re a customer of Netflix, but your local library likely has most of these too.
- Casper’s Haunted Christmas–Animated fun!
- White Christmas– Bing Crosby, the famous song…and it’s in color!
- Christmas Classics for Kids– An assorted batch of cartoons.
- Power Rangers Samurai: Christmas Together, Friends Forever– For a souped up Christmas.
- Barney: Night Before Christmas– It really is fun for the youngest set.
- Miracle on 34th Street: Colorized Version– Magical.
- Miracle on 34th Street: Black and White
- March of the Wooden Soldiers: Laurel and Hardy– A little humor and silliness.
- The Bishop’s Wife– The original, with Cary Grant. Need we say more?
- We’re No Angels– Humphrey Bogart in an atypical Bogey role.
And while these aren’t “watch it now” movies, they’re well worth seeking out:
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- The Polar Express
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
- The Shop around the Corner
- Christmas in Connecticut
