10. White Christmas (1954)

Irving Berlin’s Christmas classic, White Christmas has been a tradition passed down through the last 60 years. Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney star in the 50’s holiday musical where the song of the same name comes from.

There’s a reason the film has stood the test of time; everyone in it is a world class entertainer. With all the dancing, singing and playful banter your kids might just want to get up and create their own Christmas show for the family.

11. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)

Although it’s not explicitly a Christmas film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone has enough holiday magic ingrained within to satisfy a Christmas movie craving. From the snowy grounds of Hogwarts to the Great Hall decorated with enchanted, towering Christmas trees to Harry getting his first presents ever, there are plenty of festive moments for kids in the first Harry Potter film.

There’s also plenty of adventure and excitement to enjoy as Harry navigates his first year at Hogwarts completely in awe of his introduction to the wizarding world.
