The 17 Best Christmas Movies Of All Time

Lifetime and ABC Family have been doing their damnedest to take over the Christmas movie genre, and yes, sometimes they do have some solid contributions. But let’s be honest, nothing can compare to the classics. Those flicks that it’s just not Christmas unless you’ve popped them in for the hundredth time, you’ve quoted and sung along with it, and reflected on memories of holidays gone by while doing so (can Santa even come without Bing Crosby singing?). Therefore we could not pass by the opportunity to share our own best Christmas movies of all time on this Twenty-Something Tuesday in hopes that in case you haven’t seen them, you’ll soon to make new memories with them.
