Top 10 Christmas Movies

Ok so I was just browsing Christmas movies trying to think of what movie to watch Thanksgiving night (my family always watches a Christmas Movie on Thanksgiving Night). Anyways when I was browsing through the selection I started to think what are my favorite Christmas Movies?? And since I love LISTS here it goes... these are MY personal favorites:

10. The Family Stone
9. It's A Wonderful Life
8. The Santa Clause
7. Miracle on 34th Street (I actually like the remake...I know my sister thinks I am crazy too).
6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the cartoon)
5. A Charlie Brown Christmas
4. Elf
3. Christmas Vacation
2. Home Alone
1. A Christmas Story

What do you think of my list??? Did I forget your favorite??? Perhaps you prefer A Christmas Carol, White Christmas, The Nutcracker, The Grinch, Or Polar Express....What are your favorites??

I like your list but I also love White Christmas, Adam and I have gone to see at at the Alabama Theater and they sing carols before and stuff. But I'm a history teacher so that might be why I like the old stuff. What is Family Stone? I don't know that one.

What about Srooged? That's one of my favorites. Murray does good with holiday-themed movies. Does Die Hard count as a Christmas movie?

Carrie - I am not into Old Movies really except maybe "some like it hot" and "It's a wonderful life" but I figured there would be some old ones people prefered. The Family Stone I believe came out last Christmas or the Christmas before with Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson, Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams the list goes on and on... it is a good one but kind of sad for a Christmas Movie. But I love all the actors in it so MUCH!!!

"Carrie's Husband" AKA Adam - I am not sure I have ever actually watched Scrooged all the way through, now that I am older I should probably try to I am sure it is great. Die Hard is actually considered a Christmas movie but I don't necessarily consider it a Christmas movie just because it takes place at a Christmas Party. That is a personal choice :) I do LOVE some DIE HARD!!! I think that is one of Bruce Willis BEST!!! That and The 6th Sense.

Elf for sure. I love it! I could watch it all year long. And I agree with Carrie's husband...Scrooged is great! You need to watch it all the way through!

I thought It's A Wonderful Life would've been higher on the list. I swear we watch it every year. One of my other favorites is One Magic Christmas with Mary Steenburgen! It is wonderful and if anyone wants to borrow, I have the DVD. A couple years ago my dad made a dvd with clips from all of our Christmas mornings from when we were little. It is pretty hilarious!

I am definitely going to watch scrooged at some point this Christmas. Areta- It's a Wonderful life is GREAT but I don't like old movies but it did make my top 10 which is pretty good. A Cheesy Christmas movie that I like is "All I Want for Christmas".

It's A Wonderful Life should be higher on the list. Best Christmas movie, top to bottom. Love it!!! i watch it every year.
