'Love Actually' (2003)
If you need help getting into the Christmas spirit, these holiday favorites will do the trick. Ho, ho, ho!
"SANTA!!!" Will Ferrell's Buddy the Elf is the purest form of joy, love, and everything good about Christmas. As sweet as maple syrup.
'A Christmas Story' (1983)
The Christmas movie that keeps on giving (including a Broadway musical), the classic has received a 24-hour marathon every Christmas Eve on TNT and TBS for the last 20 years. And we're still not tired of "You'll shoot your eye out!"
Christmas brings love, hilarity, and heartbreak (and a rock star stripping on TV) in Richard Curtis' funny, sweet, flawed, and heartbreaking ensemble movie. Come for the great dialogue, stay for Hugh Grant's Prime Minister dancing to Pointer Sisters' "Jump." Because REASONS.
'Home Alone' (1990)
One little boy who's accidentally left home alone over the holiday has the best Christmas ever while defending his turf from two comical burglars. "Keep the change, you filthy animal!"
'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' (1964)
The most classic Christmas tale in all the land. We hope Hermey found happiness as a dentist. Now where's that Bumble to put the star on our tree?
'How the Grinch Stole Christmas!' (1966)
No matter how many movies they make about the Grinch, you can't beat the original with Boris Karloff as the Green Meanie. Still makes our heart grow three sizes.
'The Muppet Christmas Carol' (1992)
What makes this classic tale even better? Kermit and Miss Piggy! Statler and Waldorf as singing ghosts! And Michael Caine as (arguably) the best Scrooge ever.
'The Santa Clause' (1994)
When Tim Allen is chosen to be the new Santa Claus, he can't say no! And you gotta love David Krumholtz as Bernard the Head Elf. (Seriously, there are fan vids all over YouTube.)
'Frosty the Snowman' (1969)
The classic Christmas song comes to life in this animated TV special. If you don't shed a tear when Frosty melts (don't worry, he came back in several sequels), congrats, you might have a colder heart than a snowman.
'White Christmas' (1954)
What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with this Technicolor classic starring Bing Crosby? Sing along with the tunes from Irving Berlin, who penned the immortal title song.
'All I Want for Christmas' (1991)
In this underrated holiday take on "The Parent Trap", two kids (Thora Birch and Ethan Embry) ask Santa (Leslie Nielsen!) to get their parents back together. And grandma is Lauren Bacall!
