From A Christmas Story to Holiday Inn.
Classic Christmas movies hold a special sort of charm that are so different from the newer Hallmark Christmas movies or these original Netflix Christmas movies. The old black-and-white top Christmas movies somehow capture everything we love about the holidays, particularly the nostalgia factor. There's something so magical about cuddling up by the fire and watching Donna Reed and James Stewart's romance in It's a Wonderful Life, or Natalie Wood as the charming Susan Walker in Miracle on 34th Street. You likely remember tuning in with your own parents, grandparents, cousins, or siblings when you were a kid, waiting anxiously to see Santa arrive on the screen, Ralphie dressed in that pink bunny suit, or singing along to the best Country Christmas songs.
Thankfully, it's easy to pass the tradition onto your own family. After you've decorated the tree and hung the stockings with care, gather everyone together and choose one of these beloved classic Christmas movies to enjoy. They may not be familiar with them yet, but we're willing to bet they'll bask in the merriment as much as you do. Plus, you can always watch one of the best funny Christmas movies or Christmas movies for kids after, should the little ones need a little incentive to sit through mom and dad's pick.
