Christmas movies are essential to the Christmas season and are universally loved by all who celebrate Christmas. Many families make it a tradition to watch Christmas movies every single year, so these movies can remain classics for many years in a row. Here are some of the most popular Christmas movies of all time:

  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – Rudolph came out in 1964 and has similarly became a cultural icon that is connected to the Christmas season. It tells the story of reindeer that saves Christmas because of his bright nose.
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas – This movie is based on a kids book by Dr. Seuss and tells the story of an odd character who hates Christmas and attempts to ruin it for others.
  • Polar Express – The Polar Express is a classic animated movie about kids who take the polar express to the North Pole and meet other kids, elves, and Santa himself. 
  • Elf – Elf is a comedy movie about a grown-up human who was raised by elves in the North Pole and genuinely thinks that he is an elf. He travels to New York to find his biological father and get his father back on the nice list.
