My Favorite Christmas Movies

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

It’s dark when I go to work. It’s dark when I come home. So, we need a little brightness lately. Even if it’s from the glow of the TV as we watch our favorite holiday movies.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

I do post affiliate links in my blogs. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post. But this comes at no extra cost to you. So, thank you.

I will not be including The Grinch, Rudolph, Frosty, or Charlie Brown in this list. Because those are given. Those are not even a question. There’s a law that everyone has to watch them every year. I’m sure of it.

We all have our favorites. Thankfully, I live with people who dig my kind of Christmas movies. Let’s see if you do, too.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This is my husband’s favorite movie. Not just holiday movie. Movie. Of. All. Time. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s a classic for so many lines and scenes. Who can forget Clark’s face when the lights finally work?

I aspire to have this level of joy.

And I don’t know anyone who didn’t want to recite his rant to someone at least once.

Listen, this is fried gold. If I ever have the mischance to see my ex again. This is getting said.

And then there’s Cousin Eddie.

We all that one in our families. And if you’re thinking you don’t, you might be it.


This movie. It is one of the best horror comedy movies I have watched. I hated the visiting family members. I love Adam Scott. He is in another horror comedy that I strongly recommend called Little Evil. If you like Krampus, you’ll like that, too. Anyway. The ending on this:


Bill Murray is the GOAT. This is one of the best adaptations of the Christmas Carol trope. And I think we need more ghosts messing with corporate heads but that’s just me. And can we give some love to Carol Kane. The woman is a goddess. Bobcat Goldthwait? Hellooooo. Alfre Woodard was stunning and I’m convinced she doesn’t age. The writing. The effects. Just amazing.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

This is the ultimate adaptation of The Christmas Carol. What makes it so great? Michael Caine wasn’t told he was acting against Muppets and slayed the part of Scrooge. Add on the narration by Gonzo as Charles Dickens. Superb. Just amazing. I can’t say enough about this. And even better now that they added Belle’s song back in. As they should.

Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas

This has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Muppets. The songs. And my introduction to metal.

The Riverbottom Nightmare Band was hardcore. Fight me on this.

I love this movie so much. My husband loves it so much. He loves it so much, I bought him A Jug Band band shirt for Christmas. Two years running. Same one because I’m so attentive.

So, what’s your must watch Christmas movie? Share it with us so we can check it out and maybe add it to out own lists.
