Holiday Movies To Watch This Season

christmas tree holiday movies

If you don’t love holiday movies do you even have a soul!?!

Do you ever see flashes of holiday movies in your head from childhood and you cannot remember what they are for the life of you? For me that movie was All I Want For Christmas. I knew nothing about it except a few flashes of scenes in my head and finally after hours of hunting through holiday movies I figured it out. Now I just need to watch it again!

Here’s a list of 30+ movies to get you in the holiday mood this season! When you watch them, actually WATCH them. Don’t be on your phone scrolling through Instagram. Get in your plaid pajamas, some hot cocoa or egg nog, a holiday cookie or two, and just relax.

Did I miss one of your favorites? Leave it in the comments!
