Some are such classics that you would never tire of seeing them year after year.
1. Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
This one is a true classic. You can never tire of listening to Margaret O’Brien delivering a soulful and touching “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to cheer up her friend in the movie. This movie is a truly American movie and also details the events that happen in a year of their lives.
2. 3 Godfathers (1948)
A western with a Christmas message to deliver? This movie does just that. It is about three cowboys trying to deliver a baby to the frontier town of New Jerusalem on Christmas day. You can watch it just for John Wayne and in a strange way; this western actually moves you to tears - another great Christmas classic to watch.
3. Home Alone (1990)
In terms of cute Christmas movies, this one is a definite must have. Set around |Christmas day, this movie is all about a little boy trying to survive Christmas in his house all by himself. There is nothing sad about the movie though as he outdoes some very messy thieves in hilarious ways. The kids will surely love this movie.
4. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)-martin
It is one of the bad movies that is good because it is bad. The plot is ridiculous but the movie manages to keep you in splits. Martians kidnap Santa so Martian kids can have Christmas and the movie is all about Santa blundering his way through Mars and the hearts of the Martians. The movie sends out a message that Christmas has a Universal appeal.
5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
This is the animated version of Dr. Seuss’ fable about the Grinch trying to ruin the holidays for everyone else. This is a truly funny movie and much better than the one starring Jim Carrey.
6. A Christmas Tale (2008)
This is definitely not a feel good movie. Although set on Christmas day, there is nothing cheerful about it and this movie brings out all the complexities of a French family who gather together for Christmas. A good movie to watch if your family is in a better place than the family on screen.
There are so many other movies that you can catch up on Christmas day and the days before Christmas. Some movies are so good that you can watch them any time of the year.
