What's Your Favorite Christmas Film?

With just a few days to go before Christmas, I was thinking what are the absolute best Christmas movies of all time.

And even though there are literally hundreds of films devoted to raising your holiday spirits, only a few can be called Christmas Classics.

So, here are my 5 top Christmas films.

5. Die Hard (1988) 

Yes the 1988 film starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman is a Christmas movie as much as it is an action film.

4. Home Alone (1990) 

Little Kevin, played by Macaulay Culkin gets stranded at home for the holidays and has to defend his house from two robbers, all the while learning the meaning of Christmas.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) 

Even 24 years after its release, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas still holds up and has even achieved cult status.

2. A Christmas Story (1983) 

Based on the book “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash,” by Jean Sheppard. The story of Ralphie and his family have been seriously embedded in our Christmas traditions.

1. Miracle on 34th Street (1947) 

Miracle of 34th Street has been remade at least 10 times, but the favorite is the 1947 version starring Edmond Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara and a very young Natalie Wood.

Of course there are some honorable mention Christmas films, It's a Wonderful Life, A Muppet Christmas Carol, Family Man, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Elf and Scrooged with Bill Murray.

Check them all out at  and have a great holiday season!
