Every year in December television networks haul out their viewers favorite holiday movies. Some of them are standards. Some are a bit quirky. They are all great for making memories with your family. Don’t forget the popcorn!

The Santa Clause Series

Tim Allen stars in this hysterical series of a man who accidentally becomes Santa Claus. From start to finish it’s a family friendly movie and is especially nice for blended families as it shows that family is family, no matter what the blood says.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This is the Christmas nightmare most of us have had at some point. Chevy Chase stars as Clark Griswold the man who can’t do much of anything right. His home is invaded over the holidays by the relatives we all refuse to admit that we have (and are probably the real reason we moved 3000 miles away from our hometown) who always manage to show up at the worst possible time.

A Christmas Carol

This is probably the all-time classic holiday movie. Based on the Novel of the same name by Charles Dickens, This movie tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and how the Christmas Eve visit by three ghosts changes his life forever. This movie has been remade several times, with my favorite being the adaptation; A Muppets Christmas Carol. The Muppets make the story a lot of fun and who can resist them this time of year?

A Christmas Story

Even people who have never seen this movie are familiar with the quote “You’ll put your eye out.” This catch phrase runs throughout the movie because all Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder B.B. gun. As funny and heartwarming as this movie is the first time you see it, it gets better with age. It’s so popular with the public that some television stations will run it over and over for 24 hours straight during the holidays.

Deck the Halls

Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito star in this tale of holiday lights gone crazy. DeVito’s character, Buddy, wants enough lights on his house so that it can be seen from space. Broderick’s character, Steve is the chairman of the town winter festival and doesn’t want Buddy to either show him up as being more “Christmasy” or live next door to a house that is bright enough to be seen from space. It’s a lot of fun for the whole family and shows how good neighbors ought to be all year long, not just around the holidays.
