Top 5 Family Holiday Movies List
ELF is everyone’s favorite holiday comedy, a fun film for the whole family. An elf named Buddy is accidentally transported to the North Pole, where he is then raised to be Santa Claus’ little helper. As Buddy grows up, he realizes he doesn’t fit in with the rest of the elves, so he travels to New York to find his real father.
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Grinch is a must-watch for every child. This is a great way to explain to your kids that Christmas is not all about presents. This classic Dr Suess’ film shows a green grouchy grinch who wants to ruin everyone’s holiday spirit. Watch all the fun unfold at Whoville!
3. The Santa Clause
Fun and heartwarming for the whole family with good laughter. This is a film about a divorced dad who has custody of his son on Christmas Eve. The dad sees Santa and scares him off the roof. Both the dad and son are magically transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains to the dad that he now has to take on the role of being Santa Clause.
4. Disney’s A Christmas Carol
The animation in this film is incredible and worth watching with your children. On Christmas Eve, crotchety miser Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead partner Jacob Marley. Scrooge is told that what they do in life will determine what happens to them in the afterlife.
5. Home Alone
This is my all-time favorite movie and it never gets old. Home Alone shares a story about a 8-year old boy who misbehaves before leaving for a family trip, so his mother makes him sleep in the attic. You gotta watch the film to see all the fun and adventure unfold!
