Our Top Christmas Movie Picks

Read about our Newspaper staff’s favorite holiday films.



  • My favorite Christmas movie is The Santa Clause. I have many fond memories of watching this movie with my parents, grandparents, and siblings. The plot is extremely funny and heartwarming, and because of that it has become a yearly Christmas staple for my family. 


  • My favorite Christmas movie is Home Alone. When I first watched this movie as a child it gave me a fear of home invasions, however, since then I have grown to love and appreciate this film for its edgy plot. It is both nostalgic, and hilarious, which are two things I value in any movie I choose to stream.  


  • My favorite Christmas movie would have to be Elf. I am a huge fan of Will Ferrell and this is one of my favorites from him. This movie puts a humorous twist on a classic Christmas story. I watch this movie every year with my family, and it never gets old. 


  • My favorite Christmas movie is The Polar Express. I remember always watching this movie in elementary school, and having Christmas parties in class. Overall this movie is very nostalgic for me and was a major part of my childhood. I usually watch this movie once a year during the holidays and get cozy, for old times sake. 


  • My favorite Christmas movie is Rudoplh, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I’ve watched this movie since I was a kid and it is always really fun to watch during the holidays. I really enjoy the music in the film and the cute characters. I love watching this movie every holiday season and it brings back good memories.
