Holiday Movies We Love
1. While You Were Sleeping
This charming love story may not be technically classified as a “Christmas” movie, but December is certainly the best time of year to watch it! Follow Lucy (Sandra Bullock), as she unexpectedly spends Christmastime with a family that changes her life forever.
2. The Holiday
If you were going on vacation, would you prefer to visit Los Angeles or the English Countryside? Experience the romance of both in this delightful movie about two women who switch homes during the holiday season…and find love along the way.
3. Little Women
Nothing quite beats the coziness of Little Women (1994), a beautiful adaptation of the beloved classic by Louisa May Alcott. Celebrate the season alongside the March sisters with this timeless story.
4. It’s a Wonderful Life
The ultimate classic, It’s a Wonderful Life, is a true expression of the heart of the season. This film never ceases to remind us of how much we have to be grateful for.
5. Love Actually
Christmastime is all about love so it is only fitting to watch romantic movies during this time of year! Set during the holidays in London, this movie follows eight different couples navigating their love lives.
6. Meet Me in St. Louis
This Christmas musical released in 1944 stars the ever-so-delightful Judy Garland and of course, her beautiful rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
7. The Man Who Invented Christmas
A more recent holiday movie, The Man Who Invented Christmas tells the story of how Charles Dickens wrote his classic, A Christmas Carol.
8. Miracle on 34th Street
Both the original and remake of this film are charming celebrations of Santa’s magic and the warm, fuzzy feeling of childhood Christmases.
