Holiday Movies - 2023 Edition




If you’re like me, then you know how special it is to kick back with your loved ones after that big holiday dinner and dig into the perfect holiday movie. There's also no comfier time to fall asleep on the couch after said meal...but that's a conversation for a different time.


Whether it’s a new Netflix Christmas special, something you haven’t seen in a long time, or that one movie your family needs to see every year (will this be the year my family wants to watch something other than Love Actually?)...there’s nothing better. It’s one of the things I look forward to the most every holiday season! 

As a huge movie fan, I wanted to share some of my tried and true holiday movies for this Christmas season. So enjoy these recommendations, and don’t spend too much time on that annual debate as to whether or not Batman Returns and Die Hard are really Christmas movies. Because they are. Obviously.



Home Alone

Starting things off with a modern classic here, and undoubtedly one of the first movies I think of when someone asks me to name a holiday movie. The classics are classics for a reason, and Home Alone stands the test of time. Kevin McCallister must defend his home from the notorious Wet Bandits while his family races back home after leaving for a vacation without him. Non-stop laughs and enough wacky fun to keep the kids entertained throughout. Yes, we've all seen it but especially if you haven't for years, give it a shot and you'll be surprised with how well it holds up!



Family Switch

If you're looking for something new to check out this holiday season, Family Switch has you covered! Christmas is the perfect time of year for families to reconnect, but when a touch of magic swaps the Walker parents with their kids for a day, it's an opportunity for each side to truly walk in the others' shoes. Heartwarming, funny and a great time to spend with your kids. Look for it on Netflix!



A Charlie Brown Christmas




No respectable Christmas movie list would be complete without A Charlie Brown Christmas. The 1965 animated special is the perfect family holiday movie, with an unbeatable soundtrack and an important message for kids. Short enough to keep your little ones' attention, and charming enough to warm the hearts of all ages, this classic is a holiday must-watch!



National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation




You knew this had to be on the list, too. Chevy Chase is the lovable Clark Griswold in the all-time favourite National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. As we all know, Clark does everything he can to have the best Christmastime with his family, but from an electrocuted cat, to the Christmas tree catching fire...things don't entirely go as planned. In the end though, it all works out. Perfect for the family, this is sure to keep the laughs coming. Just don't mention the Jelly of The Month Club!!
