Best Christmas movies for kids and adults by Simply Sisters

12 Days of Christmas Movies

Tis the season for all of the Christmas goodies, songs, and our favorite, movies. One of our favorite past times is gathering around as a family with hot cocoa and popcorn to watch Christmas movies. We have decided to round up 24 of our favorites; 12 directed toward children and families, and 12 more appropriate for adults.

So let’s start with our favorite family movies. Our number 1 pick is Elf! This movie is great for kids, teens, and adults. It is filled with humor, light romance, and plenty of Christmas cheer. Another favorite of ours is the classic, A Christmas Story. This movie brings us back to when we were children. Every year when it aired, our parents would move the dinner table in front of the television to eat dinner and watch it as a family. We have also included favorites such as Home Alone, The Santa Clause, and the Grinch. And who can forget about Frosty and Rudolf. See below for our full list!

Next up are our picks for parents or adults. Disclaimer: some of these movies are inappropriate for children, but are great for a good laugh! Let’s begin with our all time favorite, Christmas Vacation. This is such a classic for our household. We love watching this movie with our Dad who laughs just as hard today as the first time he saw it. Another favorite is Four Christmases. We love anything starring Reese Witherspoon, so of course as soon as she appeared in a Christmas movie, we were all about it! We love the movie, Just Friends, it is hilarious. Some may not consider it a Christmas movie, but it takes place at Christmas time, so that is good enough for us! See below for our full list!
