Top 10 Christmas Movies: Blogmas Day 7

I love Christmas movies as they get me into the holiday cheer even more. (I know, that's impossible! But it isn't.) I compiled my top 10 Christmas movies below.

Also, if you haven't discovered this yet, I am a child at heart. I have so many fun movies from my childhood on this list because I still enjoy them to this day. Don't judge.

So without further ado, here is my top 10 Christmas movies in no particular order.

1. Elf
"You sit on a throne of lies." 

"Son of a nutcracker!" I love this movie so much and every year my dad starts quoting it right after Halloween. After all, "There's room for everyone on the nice list."

2. The Santa Clause
"Fella, if you can hear me, I'm just looking for your identification. As soon as I find out who you are, I'll give you a lift back to the mall."

The Santa Clause is such a classic movie to get into the holiday spirit. Watching Charlie see what his dad goes through after the real Santa falls from the roof is an amazing journey. And we learn what The Santa Clause is as well from Bernard. "The Santa Clause: In putting on the suit and entering the sleigh, the wearer waives any and all right to any previous identity, real or implied, and fully accepts the duties and responsibilities of Santa Claus, in perpetuity to which some time the wearer becomes unable to do so, by either accident or design."

3. A Christmas Story
"I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle!"

Playing 24 hours on Christmas Eve, A Christmas Story is a wonderful movie to get into the spirit. In the 1940s, a young boy named Ralphie attempts to convince his parents, his teacher, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect Christmas gift. You should definitely watch it: "I TRIPLE-dog-dare ya!"

4. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch."

If you haven't seen the original How The Grinch Stole Christmas, please go watch it right now. But this version with Jim Carrey is hilarious. After all, the Grinch is a great internet meme and represents the best in all of us. 

5. Mickey’s Christmas Carol 
"Bah humbug!"

Created in 1983, Mickey's Christmas Carol is a wonderful Disney twist on a classic tale. It's the same old classic Charles Dickens story. However, Uncle Scrooge McDuck is appropriately enough Scrooge and is visited by his dead partner and three spirits one night to remember the joys of Christmas. It was even nominated for the animated short film Oscar in 1983.

6. The Nightmare Before Christmas
"Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it."

If you are going to argue that this is a Halloween movie, I will have so many points to prove it's not. It takes place right after Halloween ends and Jack, the Pumpkin King, discovers the Christmas door and decides to bring Christmas and Halloween together.

7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
"From what I see now, that will cut through the murkiest storm they can dish up. What I'm trying to say is, Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

I love this movie that gives the classic song visuals. It is such a cute movie with so many wonderful lessons, such as being different is okay. Also, it's pretty good for a 1964 movie.

8. Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town
"Poor, misguided folks. They missed the whole point. Lot's of unhappiness? Maybe so. But doesn't Santa take a little bit of that unhappiness away? Doesn't a smile on Christmas morning scratch out a tear cried on a sadder day? Not much maybe. But what would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa's beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men."

Who doesn't love the music in this movie? This 1970 classic is another fun and upbeat classic song turned movie. I have to watch this every year. Again, like Rudolph, there are so many good lessons. I highly recommend this movie if you have not yet seen it and especially if you have kids around.

9. Olive, the Other Reindeer 
"I'm going to save Christmas! I heard Santa on the radio, and he said he needed Olive, the other reindeer. That's me."

This was a favorite Christmas movie during my childhood. This cute dog named Olive hears the radio incorrectly and goes on a journey to help Santa. It is beyond adorable. 

10. A Charlie Brown Christmas
"That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

Finally, another older film, this 1954 classic just warms my heart each year as I get excited for the season. I absolutely love The Peanuts and this is such a cute edition. "I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It's not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love."

Let me know if your favorite Christmas movies are on the list in the comments below.
