17 Great Christmas Movies the Whole Family Can Enjoy

By  | Last Updated:  

Christmas movie night is one of my favorite things to do when cold weather strikes. It’s a precious time as a family to me. I love sharing classic Christmas movies with my boys that I grew up enjoying. It’s always fun to add new movies to the list as well. Without a doubt, Elf has become a classic in our home that we can’t get enough of! {Although White Christmas will always be my ultimate favorite!} Curling up with fleece blankets, comfy pillows, hot cocoa and popcorn is the making of a perfect evening for me.   The movies also provide the perfect excuse to hold on to the boys – they’re often busy and wiggly … a good movie coaxes them into mama’s lap! Not only do we enjoy watching the movies together, I love the discussions that the movie themes spark in our family. Children are much more insightful than we give them credit for! A good movie can open up their eyes to the blessings in their lives and is a great reminder about the joy of Christmas.
