25 Must-See Christmas Movies (and shows) To Watch With Your Family

Best Christmas Movies

Happy December! I can't believe Christmas is less than four weeks away. Even more so, I can't believe it's the last month of the year and the last month of the DECADE! Why does time have to go by so quickly?

Speaking of time, I don't have much extra time these days. Five kids, including one who has special needs and one who is a baby, keep me VERY busy. The past few months were even busier than usual, so I really struggled to keep up. I miss blogging so much, so I think it's time to rejuvenate my blog!

My December calendar is very overwhelming, but the most important thing to do this month is spend time together as a family. My big family makes tradition and family togetherness a priority. One of the ways we come together as a family is through regular Family Movie Nights! Christmas is our favorite time of year (well, it's tied with Summer), and we have so many favorite Christmas movies and shows. I listed our favorites to share with all of you!

Our kids range in age from 8 months to 15 years. We have a child in every stage of development, so we put a lot of thought into our list of family favorites. We came up with way more than 25 movies, but narrowed it down to the ones that MOST of us enjoyed! 

Grant and I each shared a favorite from our childhood, and a current favorite. Our four older kids each shared their favorite Christmas movie/show. We hope you enjoy the Christmas movies and shows that we love the most!

  1. Nice list! I've been loving the Christmas movies on channels on Hallmark and Lifetime lately. However, I also love Jim Carrey's How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas.
