Best Christmas Movies All-Time
December 9, 2022   |   Jillian Letourneau

The holiday seasons are here at Devonshire. A time to put ornaments on the tree, hang up the festive decorations, and leave out the milk and cookies for jolly ol’ Saint Nick. Most importantly, there’s nothing like getting out the hot chocolate and cozying up with the family to watch a beloved Xmas movie. 

Here are our favorites holiday flicks that we’ll be watching on repeat: 

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

Often regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time, the Frank Capra fantasy drama was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture. In 1990, the Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry and cited it as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”.  This is a holiday must-watch!

A Christmas Story (1983)

In our opinion, this is the best holiday film of all time. A Christmas Story has it all. “You’ll shoot your eye out.” “I triple dog dare you!” “Fudge.” “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.” Pretty sure we have most of the movie memorized. Not to mention the leg lamp that joins the rest of our holiday decor.

Home Alone (1990) 

This feature made Macaulay Culkin  one of the most successful child actors of all-time. 

Essentially, Home Alone is It’s A Wonderful Life backwards. Kevin McCallister knows his worth; it’s his family that doesn’t. When he’s left Home Alone, McCallister fights back home invaders with the genius of a master mechanical engineer. Somewhere in the shenanigans, there’s a Christmas message. It’s still just as fun now as it was 32 years ago. 

How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Director Ron Howard did the impossible by successfully remaking an animated classic. Jim Carrey stars as the titular character, giving one of the most iconic comedy performances of all time. The A-lister was so unrecognizable beneath his Grinch attire, that the film went on to win the Academy Award for Best Makeup. 

Elf (2003)

Just because Elf is the newest movie on this list, doesn’t mean it’s not a modern classic. Praised by critics and audiences alike, the adventures of Buddy the Elf grossed $220 million against a $33 million budget. For whatever reason, a franchise didn’t follow. Still, we still have this hilariously original feature — an homage to the stop motion Rankin/Bass Christmas specials we all grew up with and loved.
