Must-See Family Holiday Movies

family holiday movies

The holiday season is upon us guys which at our house means, lazy days off from elementary school/preschool. Family movie nights are my kids’ favorite things to do at the end of holiday vacation days. We all get in our PJs after showers/baths in mommy and daddy’s bed, eat popcorn, and drink hot chocolate and snuggle! It’s my favorite!

As we get to that time of year I wanted to share some of our favorite family holiday movies:

Note: we have an elementary school aged child and a preschool child so these are skewed for younger viewers.

1. Frosty, Grinch and Rudolph (G)

*Classic Movie Favorites. These are all played on TV. We own these at this point, but we used to DVR them.

2. The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf’s Story (not rated)

*Comes on TV each year and we just DVR it.

3. Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas

*Usually available on Netflix or at the local library. Also a great Pandora station for the holidays. 

4. The Nightmare Before Christmas (PG)

*We watch this at Halloween too. It can be found on Netflix.

5. Polar Express (G)

*Well done book-turned-movie. Comes on TV. DVR

6. Home Alone (PG)

*I think my kids are just now old enough for this cute movie. We are going to watch it this year. Hope I’m not wrong. Ha!

7. Elf (PG)

*I loved this movie but need to preview it to make sure it’s truly kid appropriate. We may try it this year.

And just for fun, I want to share some fun movies to watch after the kids go to bed.

1. Four Christmases

We just think this movie is hysterical!

2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

*Honestly it’s not the holidays if you aren’t watching this movie.

3. Miracle on 34th Street

*Too many words and not enough color (wink wink) for my kids but it’s a classic.

4. It’s a Wonderful Life

* Get the tissues out

Merry Family Movie Night, Y’all!
