The holiday season is all about tapping into the nostalgia of when were kids, and nothing makes us reminisce more than some good classic movies. If you’re looking for some ideas for your movie nights this upcoming season, take a look at a few of our favourite holiday movies below.
He’s grumpy, he’s green and for some odd reason, he’s a staple part of the holiday season that we love. From the Whos to the music – it doesn’t matter which version you prefer – The Grinch is a holiday must.
We were introduced to the McCallisters over 30 years ago, and they’re still a part of our favourite Holiday movie traditions. When 8-year-old Kevin sets up a scheme of pranks to protect his home from burglars, he takes us on an epic ride back to the 90s every time we watch this Christmas classic.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
As Chevy Chase endures one holiday disaster after another, he reminds us what the holidays are all about – family, for better or for worse. The National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is fun, entertaining and always a good laugh.
No Christmas is complete without a movie night including Die Hard. It’s the perfect holiday flick to fire up when you’re craving some action and suspense. It’s one of those classic films that never seems to get old.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
John Candy and Steve Martin make a hilarious duo in this holiday comedy. As they try to get home to their families, they endure one challenge after another, inevitably crossing paths and creating some laugh out loud moments that are heartfelt as well.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
It’s creepy, it’s cheerful, and it’s another creative masterpiece from Tim Burton that has managed to become a Christmas movie staple.
A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story is one of those timeless movies that manages to hit all the notes of an epic and entertaining movie, which is why it’s played on repeat every single holiday season.
The Santa Claus
The Santa Claus is a holiday movie that kids always love to watch. It brings the audience into the magical world of the North Pole and shows us how Santa works his magic to zip across to the globe and deliver his bundle of gifts. A great reminder to keep that magic alive, especially during the holidays.
