|Movie Still from It's a Wonderful Life by S_Herman.|
If you want an exhaustive list with a very loose definition of "Christmas," go here.
My favorites are the made-for-television, stop-animation movies done by Rankin-Bass in the 1960s as well as black & white films released in theaters in the 1940s.
But I make room on my list for three newer films: A Christmas Story (1983), A Muppet Christmas Carol (1992), and Love Actually (2003).
Otherwise, I'm holding the line.
So let's take a trip down memory lane and look at a list of Christmas movies. These are the ones our family enjoys the most--listed from most recent to most classic.
Love Actually (2003)
The Santa Clause (1994)
