Christmas 2019

All of the Christmas related films I have watched this Christmas season in order of when I watched them. I personally am a “Christmas starts on November 1” kinda gal. This year I wanted to challenge myself to watch all of my favorites plus a bunch of films I have never seen before. There are a handful of films here that aren’t TECHNICALLY Christmas films but that remind me of Christmas or have a particularly Christmas-like quality to them. Chop chop, I got Christmas spirit!

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas

    A Charlie Brown Christmas

    1 November 2019: This is my mom’s favorite Christmas movie. It does not feel right to start the season with anything else.

    Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse

    ★★★★★

    1 November 2019: is that really what the nutcracker has been about this entire time ????

  • The Heart of Christmas

    The Heart of Christmas

    2 November 2019: I know that this is very Christian and also not entirely a Christmas movie, but I think it is still very moving and great when you need a good cry.

    Arthur's Perfect Christmas

    ★★★★★

    Christmas with the Kranks

    ★★★★

    6 November 2019: i almost died from second hand embarrassment watching parts of this! the tanning scene in particular! i had to pause this a hundred times! (i also didn’t quite get the logic of their plan like how does not donating to charity and not putting out christmas decorations you ALREADY OWN hurt your cruise efforts)

  • Last Christmas

    Last Christmas

    ★★★★

    8 November 2019: the characters in this MADE this and the christmas feeling was there!

  • Unaccompanied Minors

    Unaccompanied Minors

    ★★★★½

    10 November 2019: I only watched this once years ago and back then I know I really related to boyish, angry Donna who punched boys in the nuts for touching her but today I deeply relate to the drunk grandma whose house is way too decked out for Christmas. This is a really great little Christmas movie!

  • Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular

    Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular

    10 November 2019: fleas navidad!!

  • Black Christmas

    Black Christmas

    ★½

    11 November 2019: The scariest part was the amount of tinsel on that Christmas tree. I did not enjoy this. Half the time it didn’t even feel like a slasher, just a bad movie from the 70s. However, Merry Christmas!

  • The Polar Express

    The Polar Express

    ★★★★

    11 November 2019: Tom Hanks said you better believe. I hated this movie as a kid but this time I really enjoyed it. I guess I wasn’t ready.

  • Let It Snow

    Let It Snow

    ★★★★

    12 November 2019: last night was the first “snow storm” in my college town so this felt fitting (with my crackling wood wick candle lit in the background). i loved this so much! it was so sweet!

  • Noelle

    Noelle

    ★★★★★

    12 November 2019: I would first like to thank my mom for letting me make a profile on her Disney+ account. Second, I really loved this so much. This was very The Year Without A Santa Claus meets The Santa Clause (two of my all-time favorite Christmas movies). Christmas Spirit: 15/10. It was fun and jolly and cute. Plus, I would die for that baby reindeer.

    The Santa Clause

    ★★★★★

    17 November 2019: I would like to thank this film franchise for making me spell Santa Claus wrong for the first 10 years of my life. Also, in these universes where Santa Claus exists but adults don’t believe in Santa Claus, where do they think the presents are coming from????

  • Home Alone

    Home Alone

    ★★★★★

    25 November 2019: There are people in this world who don’t consider this a Christmas movie but they do consider Die Hard a Christmas movie and to them I say..... how dare you? I forgot how much heart this has underneath all the craziness and humor. As someone from a big family I really relate to the McCallisters.

  • Olaf's Frozen Adventure

    Olaf's Frozen Adventure

    ★★★½

    26 November 2019: I expected to hate this because I am not the biggest Frozen fan to begin with and usually these specials are like watered down versions of their mother films but this was so heartwarming and cheesy and I liked it.

  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas

    ★★★★★

    7 December 2019: This was watched with friends and I have to say that added to the experience. It turns out I have never seen this version of the Grinch passed the young Grinch scenes but I have to say, the Grinch was absolutely right. This is not a kids movie, it is balls to the walls crazy.

  • Mickey's Christmas Carol

    Mickey's Christmas Carol

    7 December 2019: technically i watched this for the first time when i watched snowed in at the house of mouse but this is just such a cute version of a christmas carol <3

    13 December 2019: it was....soap....poisoning *wailing*


    25 December 2019: always iconic

  • A Christmas Story 2

    A Christmas Story 2

    13 December 2019: you can’t catch lightning in a bottle twice. while the first is a timeless classic, this is just a sad, watered down, mean-spirited, hot mess trying to pass itself off as the original. it tries too hard to make call backs to the first Christmas Story.

  • It's a Wonderful Life
