    Home Alone

    Remember when Macaulay Culkin was super adorable and cute and got left behind while his family went on vacation? Yup, me too! This is a sweet film for the whole crew.

    Gremlins

    A lot of people forget that Gremlins is set at Christmas time! It's so good! Now remember the rules, don't feed them after midnight, and NO WATER!!

    The Wizard of OZ

    Okay, not a Christmas movie, but for some reason it feels good to watch this movie this time of year. Plus, it's a great way to ease in to the holiday season if you need to put a toe in at a time.

    Scrooged

    Bill Murray as Scrooge is the absolute best! This is one of the best re-tellings of the classic "A Christmas Carol." If you haven't seen it, trust me on this, you will LOVE it!

    White Christmas

    A classic for a reason. If you love old movie musicals, this will be your cup of tea. If not, watch it anyway, it's amazing! Come on, fantastic costumes, amazing choreography, romance, Christmas, and Bing Crosby!? You can't go wrong!!

    DIE HARD

    Yes, this is a Christmas movie, and my absolute FAVE! Not for the whole family (there's a wee bit of violence and language), but it's Bruce Willis at his finest. Yes, kids, that is Professor Snape as the villain. (RIP Alan Rickman). This has become a tradition of mine and I hope it will be a holiday tradition for your family too!

    Now I have a machine gun. HO-HO-HO!
