If you're anything like me, you have already started watching those Christmas movies. If not, here are a few of the movies that are must-watches.
1. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"
It doesn't matter too much if you watch the animated or live action version; that's a matter of preference.
2. "The Polar Express"
Personal option here, but this movie is and always will be timeless. There are so many lessons to be learned and there are so many little pieces of advice.
3. "Home Alone"
I recommend "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2". Sometimes we think we hate our families to the point we want them to disappear, but we would get bored and lonely fast, as Kevin realizes.
4. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"
This movie is a classic. What I love about it the most is the fact it shows a dysfunctional family which makes it more realistic and relatable. Also, it's quotable. "Grace? She passed away 30 years ago?"
I won't go out of my way to watch this one, but it's still a good one. It re-enforces how important it is to cherish family.
6. "The Santa Clause"
This one is another one would I recommend to watch "The Santa Clause" and "The Santa Clause 2". I watch this one every Christmas because it's Tim Allen and he brings his humor to the character.
7. "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
What's a Christmas without Charlie Brown? It would be boring.
8. "Miracle on 34th Street"
It doesn't feel like Christmas without watching this movie. A little girl who is skeptical of Santa Claus? It's an insta classic. It might be lame, but I love the original one in black and white.
9. "It's a Wonderful Life"
Don't shoot me, but I haven't seen this one yet. If I have, I don't remember watching it. Despite my slack, this movie is still popular today even though the original was made in 1946.
10. "Love Actually"
This movie doubles as a date night romance and a holiday movie. With a star-studded cast, there is something for everyone to love.
