Top 10 Holiday Movies

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner. Setting up my Christmas cheer were great holiday shows like Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, Charlie Brown Christmas and The Grinch. Over the years, new favorites have been created and there are so many to check out that I thought I would put a list together of the top 10 shows that you may want to check out with the family, if you haven't already.

  1. Christmas Vacation: 1989: The Griswold family's plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster.

  2. Four Christmases: 2008: A couple struggles to visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas.

  3. Elf: 2003: After inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity.

  4. Home Alone: 1990: An 8-year old troublemaker must protect his home from a pair of burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.

  5. Fred Clause: 2007: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole.

  6. Arthur Christmas: 2011: Santa's clumsy son Arthur gets put on a mission with St. Nick's father to give out a present they misplaced to a young girl in less than 2 hours.

  7. The Family Man: 2000: A fast-lane investment broker, offered the opportunity to see how the other half lives, wakes up to find that his sports car and girlfriend have become a mini-van and wife.

  8. Planes Trains & Automobiles: 1987: A man must struggle to travel home for Thanksgiving with an obnoxious slob of a shower curtain ring salesman as his only companion.

  9. The Fitzgerald Family Christmas: 2012: The adult siblings of the Fitzgerald family prepare for their estranged father to return home for Christmas for the first time since he walked out on his family 20 years ago.

  10. Becoming Santa: 2011: For the documentary fans out there, this is a fascinating journey of one man’s attempt to become a Santa. He’s overweight, has a beard, and generally is a jolly guy to be around. Why couldn’t he be Saint Nick? But there’s so much more to it, and we realize that for some this isn’t just a seasonal gig. It’s a higher calling to spread joy the best way they can. Becoming Santa teters back and forth on the message that it wants to share, but you’ll exit it with a new and expanded definition of what it means to be, and believe in, Santa Claus.
