Everyone knows the holidays are about spending time with the people we love. That’s why we endure chaotic travel days, intrusive airport body scanners and petty familial rifts to be with the ones who matter most each December.
But at the same time, we realize the importance of Christmas, as it is synonymous with family. So as we gather together there’s nothing like watching Christmas movies during the holiday season to bring us many special family moments.
These movies represent Christmas in a memorable, magical, and somehow repeatedly watchable way. Most of us have seen them many times, yet we still watch – over, and over, and over. Is it the comfort in the familiar that appeals to us? Do they simply make us laugh? Remind us of the true meaning of the season?
