  4. Miracle on 34th Street – a classic movie with a sweet and sentimental story.
  5. Arthur Christmas – another fun animation and retelling of Santa Claus and his family legacy.

  7. Home Alone – it’s a fun comedy about a kid left at home and how he faces off two burglars with creativity and wit.
  8. Bernard and the Genie – this one doesn’t make many lists but we love this British Christmas from the 80s with Lenny Henry as the Genie.
  9. Klaus – a recent Christmas movie by Netflix and a new Spanish animation studio. We love this original origin story of Santa Claus.

  12. It’s a Wonderful Life – probably the best Christmas film of all time. It’s a classic and one to make you feel grateful.
