White Christmas

Irving Berlin's fun-filled musical extravaganza is a watch list–worthy Christmas classic everyone should watch at least once during the holidays.

While You Were Sleeping

This Sandra Bullock flick has everything you could want in a Christmas movie, from a meet-cute plot (with a twist of course) to a heroine with a loveably quirky family.

The Santa Clause

If you're looking for an age-appropriate Christmas movie the whole family can enjoy together, add this Disney classic starring Tim Allen to your watch list stat.

The Grinch

Two holidays collide when Jack Skellington leaves spooky Halloweentown and discovers cheerful Christmastown in this Tim Burton animated classic.

Mariah Carey's Merriest Christmas
