It’s a Wonderful Life (1946). It’s an oldie but a goodie. James Stewart and Donna Reed have been welcomed into our homes for over half a century now, but the movie never gets old.

Die Hard (1988) and Die Hard 2 (1990). These action movies have been classified as the quintessential Christmas films because they feature everything a great holiday movie needs to have.
Holiday Inn (1942). Another classic film featuring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire.
Elf (2003). This great comedic Christmas movie features Will Ferrell as an elf who learns that he’s really a human.
Hogfather (2006). The BBC has adapted a number of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels, including this Christmas-themed book in which the Grim Reaper must take over the Hogfather’s (aka Santa’s) job when the jolly man goes missing
The Santa Clause (1994) and its sequels (2002 and 2006). Tim Allen accidentally kills Santa and, as per the law, must take over his job and finish making his deliveries.
Miracle on 34th Street (1947). Another holiday classic that makes hearts melt and puts everyone in the holiday spirit.
