Top 10 holiday movies (+ a bonus)

Thought this might be worth a re-post. I’ve seen a few of these already this holiday season…

Although holiday music, movies and television have been running since November, I like to wait till December 1 before diving into my holiday favourites.

Here, in no particular order, are my 10 favourite holiday movies (some are set during the holidays and not so much about the holidays).

A Christmas Carol (a.k.a. Scrooge – 1951 version)

The Bells of St. Mary’s


Love Actually

The Holiday

Last Holiday

Uncle Buck


It’s A Wonderful Life

Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version)

A Christmas Story (Bonus listing! Thanks to Mum and Dad for letting me know that I forgot this one.)

Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season—and all good things for 2022!

  1. My favorite holiday movie moment is the opening to Island of Lost Children with the endless Santa’s coming down the chimney. Patrick Stewart’s 1999 A Christmas Carol is excellent.
