Since we don’t get the snow in Southwest Florida, nothing beats Christmas music on Sunny and the best Christmas movies on tv.

Whether you’re decorating the Christmas tree, hosting a holiday party with loved ones, or just wrapping presents, watching a amazing Christmas movie for the 100th time is a great time.

I like to put on a Christmas onesie, it’s the bunny one Ralphie wore on “A Christmas Story”,  turn down the ac, grab a blanket, and put on one of the classics.

Here are my top 10 favorite Christmas movies in order from “hey cool look what’s on” all the way to “stop everything I have to watch this again”.

  • Number 10 - Trading Places

    This movie came out when I was waaaaay too young to see it in a theater but I remember watching it over and over again on tv. It was amazing when the two old guys were in “Coming To America”.

  • Number 9 - Miracle On 34th Street

    Some may say the original was better, I like this one.

  • Number 8 - Die Hard

    Some people say that Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie. Those people are wrong.

  • Number 7 - The Santa Clause

    I think my favorite part of this movie is just the whole idea of a “Santa Clause”. And Tim Allen nails it.

  • Number 6- A Charlie Brown Christmas

    My parents didn’t get a VCR until I was in my teens so there was no way of watching this special except the one time each year it played on tv. But – they had the record. This entire special was on a record and it came with a picture book to follow along while you listened to the record. I think they still have it.

  • Number 5- Home Alone

    Tell me you haven’t seen this movie at least a hundred times, ya’ filthy animal.

  • Number 4- Bad Santa

    Maybe not watch this one with the kids.

  • Number 3 - A Christmas Story

    Two words – “Oh Fuuuuuuuuuuuudge”

  • Number 2 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

    And if this is number 2, it’s probably pretty obvious by now which one is my favorite.

  • Number 1 - Elf

    It’s strange that a movie trailer has NONE of the movie’s scenes, right? Maybe I’m just being an angry elf. Happy Holidays everyone!
