25 Days Of Christmas: 25 Family Movies

One of my favorite things to do during the month of December is snuggling up and watching a Christmas movie.  Whether with my kids or husband, I love it.  This list is part movies we watch as a family, and some we watch once they go to bed.  Depending on the age of your children, the list of what you let them watch may change.  Below is the list of Must Watch Movies during the holiday season.

25 Christmas Movies

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. We ALWAYS start with this movie.  Black Friday night, after we have shopped, decorated, and put the kids to bed, we snuggle up and watch this.(Get It!)

Also remember ABC Family has a great line up of Movies every year!  We usually don't watch them live, but rather DVR them for the coming days/weeks.

And a ton of kid's favorite character shows also have Christmas episodes/specials.  Netflix or your cables On Demand Feature are great to find these.

For me, I also love the Lifetime/Hallmark Channel movies as well.  I usually DVR them and watch while wrapping gifts, packing to travel, or relaxing in the evening.

  1. Great list! We own a lot of Christmas movies. We try to sit down together and watch one every night leading up to Christmas. One of my favorite traditions!
