Christmas movies are one of the most popular traditions that most families partake in. Getting into the holiday spirit is quite easy after watching a heart warming holiday movie.

I know for me, I enjoy watching Hallmark Christmas movies with my mom and sisters this time of year. We like to cuddle up on the couch with some warm cocoa, coffee, or apple cider as we watch the stories unfold.

But not everyone is a big fan of these, so I have made a list of the best Christmas movies that are feel good and family-friendly!

White Christmas

My absolute FAVORITE Christmas movie is White Christmas. There hasn’t been one Christmas that I haven’t watched it at least once. While I realize some of you May have never seen this, to me this is what Christmas is all about. It may not be an exciting one for little ones but when they get older it would be a great one to share with them. It follows two men act that teams up with a sister act who work together to put on a show for a struggling inn in Vermont. It is a musical but the songs are ones to remember!
