The holiday season is full of magic. 

Everyone seems to be in a better mood and the joy and wonder of children spreads delightful cheer.

Time spent with family, singing along to well known songs and wrapping presents while watching beloved Christmas movies.

If you’re like me and have had concerts and other commitments canceled this year you may be wondering how to spend that time instead. 

When it gets cold and dreary outside, what’s better than staying warm and cozy cuddled up on the couch?

To help you out I’ve compiled the ultimate Christmas movie watchlist. 

 This list, in no particular order, includes well-known favorites, traditional clay-mation flicks, insta-classics and more. 

I didn’t include all of the Hallmark Christmas Movies or all of Netflix’s Christmas movies since they have so many. I’m thinking each deserve their own list.
