1. A Christmas Carol (1951) and Muppet Christmas Carol
I know I'm already cheating, including two in one, but these are tied for first! They are my all time favorite versions of the Christmas Carol because they were my dad's favorite and we loved watching them together!
I mean who doesn't love this movie?? It's an instant classic, it's hilarious, and there's a character named Mr. Narwhal. I rest my case.
3. Christmas in Connecticut
This movie. So much awesome. I feel like this one may not be as well known as some of the other old Christmas movies, but it's so funny and well written! If you haven't seen it, you must!
4. The Santa Clause
They're all cute, but the first one is my favorite! We have this on VHS. Yes, those black rectangular things you used to have to rewind. Some day maybe we will buy a copy on DVD. Or even Blu ray! Baby steps, baby steps.
5. Rankin Bass Christmas Classics
Ok, I'm kind of cheating again on this one, but I love them all! It's just not Christmas until we've watched these!
Honorable mentions are White Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life, Jingle All The Way, Miracle on 34th Street, and I KNOW I'm forgetting some. I just pretty much love all Christmas movies.
