Leading up to Christmas, my wife and I always look forward to watching Christmas movies. I have seen a lot of them, from older classics to modern ones. But a few titles really stand out to me and demonstrate the rich value of this season and how good Family-Focused fiction can be.
If I consider Christmas movies as pieces of art, here are my top picks and my reason behind each selection:
- It’s A Wonderful Life (Always my number one favorite because it reminds us that life is about the people we touch).
- Christmas in Connecticut (A humorous story. My wife first introduced me to this one and I love it!)
- A Christmas Carol (with Patrick Steward portraying Scrooge).
- Miracle on 34th Street (the 1947 version)
- Holiday Inn (I love old movies and this one is a worthy classic!)
- Home Alone (Can I just say LOL?)
- Christmas Shoes (A modern film that achieved a great feat: it is only the second film that brought me to tears).
- A Christmas Wish (This little-known film feels low-budget but has a unique story and humorous moments that carry it forward).
- The Original Christmas Classics (Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, etc.)
- White Christmas (Another not-to-miss old classic).
Question: What are your favorite Christmas movies? Have you watched all the ones I listed?
