I don’t think it would be Christmas without at least one night of hot chocolate, popcorn, and a Christmas movie. And even though my kids are getting older, this is still one tradition not to be missed.
Here are a few of our favorites and some inspirational Christmas movies as well:
Polar Express – Has anyone not seen this one? A classic, and the music is wonderful too. Don’t forget the “hot chocolate” when watching this one.
Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas – The first one is good but we like the second one better. Mickey and friends find the meaning of Christmas.
A Christmas Story – Don’t worry about shooting your eye out watching this one. Funny and nostalgic.
Holiday in the Wild – This is one that I usually watch by myself or with my husband. A lovely, inspirational movie about a newly single woman who reinvents herself and finds her passion helping elephants in Africa.
Miracle on 34th Street – My all-time favorite Christmas movie. I watch it every year and it never gets old.
Love Actually – Multiple story lines but ending with the message of friendship and love.
The Nativity Story – The reason for the season. A beautiful movie about the days leading up to the birth of Jesus.
Daddy’s Home 2 – Hysterical and one that often gets left off of the holiday movie list and I have no idea why. Add this one to your list this season and get ready for some serious laughs!
The Star – A sweet and inspirational movie about the birth of baby Jesus. I remember taking my kids to the movie to see this one. Stellar cast and some big stars in this one too.
