The Christmas season  is a season for traditions !  and one of those traditions is watching Christmas Movies.

I am an old softy when I watch Christmas movies, I mean when George Bailey can’t find ZUZU’s pedals,  or when Scrooge see’s that Tiny Tim has died unless he changes his way or when Clark realizes his Christmas bonus is a year’s subscription to the Jelly of the month club!

So here is a list of 20 great Christmas films . Keep in mind these are THEATRICAL releases, so you won’t find any Hallmark movies, TV specials like “Rudolph” and “The Grinch”, or Netflix movies like “The Christmas Chronicles”. . .

 

  1. “Scrooged” (1988)

 

  1. “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946)
