Watching Christmas movies is a major part of the holiday tradition. Christmas movies are a very profitable business in the US and UK, as many people go to the cinemas or hire movies on video and DVD during the holiday season. Sometimes Christmas is the sole focus of a movie while at other times Christmas can be used just as a reference.
Watching all the decorations, gifts and family gatherings in Christmas movies enhances the holiday atmosphere and raises the Christmas spirit. Over the years, Hollywood has produced countless films which one can watch over and over again without ever getting tired of them.
It’s a Wonderful Life is the best Christmas classic of all time, and what makes it charming is the optimism and hope portrayed in the movie. This film is a must see if you ever find your Christmas spirit lacking and want to regain it. This is one of the best Christmas movies ever made, and is worth watching over and over again. And that is why it is also played on the TV again and again.
Next amongst the Top 10 Christmas Films of All Time is A Christmas Story. This movie is a great reflection of Christmas magic and is a sentimental story of a young boy who is anxious if he would be getting a BB gun as a Christmas present. This movie is entirely from the point of view of a young child and brings back childhood memories, making one nostalgic.
A Christmas Carol is a movie adapted from the Charles Dickens’s story with the same title. This movie has been made many times in different years but the charm of the actual story still remains the same way Dickens has depicted it. This film is all about being there for people at Christmas.
The next movie on the list has to be Miracle on 34th Street, which has two versions produced in different years. The movie conveys the message of faith and belief in Christmas and strengthens one’s belief in Santa and Christmas.

This movie is very entertaining with its festiveness and beautiful scenery.
