I’m dreaming of the days I’m bundled up in blankets by the fireplace sipping on candy cane hot cocoa, watching Christmas movies! It’s definitely one of my favorite winter activities!!
This year we decided to make two Belle Bucket lists! We’re going to have one dedicated to all of our activities and another smaller one that will be dedicated to just the movies/shows we’re going to watch this season!
I thought it would be fun to share some of our movie list ideas so you can add some to your bucket list too!
To make it easier, I’m going to try to organize them into categories!
I hope you love them!
Fun Family Friendly Christmas movies:
The Santa Clause Trilogy
Miracle of 34th street
The Grinch (we’re planning to go see the new movie in theaters!)
How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
Home Alone (we like 1 and 2 the best)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (I’ll add it to this list, but we don’t watch this one around Christmas)
A Christmas Carol (we like lighter versions of this, like Mickey’s)
Eloise at Christmastime
Nutcracker and the Four Realms (excited to see this!!)
The Polar Express
The Snowman (I’ll add this, but I’m honestly not a fan)
The Christmas Chronicles & Angela’s Christmas (These are going to be new on Netflix this winter)
Kid Friendly Movies:
Can be watched as a family, but I’ll probably just let them watch these on their own
Olaf's Frozen Adventure
Curious George Holiday
Christmas Good Luck Charlie
Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups
Barbie Perfect Christmas
Barbie Christmas Carol
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
Christmas Super Simple Songs (You can find this on Youtube, my younger kids are obsessed!)
The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story
A Charlie Brown Christmas
It's a Wonderful Life
A Christmas Story (this one is a bit old for my kids, but it’s a classic!)
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Frosty the Snowman
Not Christmas but, I wanted to include them anyway:
Harry Potter (we like to watch these from Halloween until Christmas , they’re just so magical!)
Beauty & The Beast
Toy Story (all of them!)
You need to refresh before the NEW TOY STORY COMES OUT NEXT YEAR!!
Some of my favorites during the season:
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
A Christmas Prince
The Holiday Calendar
The Christmas Project
The Princess Switch
You’ve got Mail
While you were sleeping
ALL THE HALLMARK MOVIES!! (and the new Netflix movies that feel like hallmark movies!)
Personal items we added to our Christmas bucket list:
Mary Poppins Returns and Fuller House aren’t Christmas shows/movies, but they come out in December so we included those as well!
We also included “Christmas Family videos”, because watching our old Christmas family home videos is one of our favorite traditions!
I’m so excited to watch these movies as a family!! And also on my own while I work on bucket lists, wrap presents, fold laundry, sneaks Christmas treats and relax, etc.
It’s really is one of my favorite traditions!!
What movie is your favorite and what movies did I miss??
