20 Favorite Christmas Movies To Set Aside Now

20 Favorite Christmas Movies To Set Aside Now | dreamgreendiy.com

As many of you know, it’s a Waller/Williams family tradition to kick Christmas off in a BIG, big way the day after Thanksgiving. Truth be told, my hubby, sister, and I tend to look more towards this day-after-Thanksgiving holiday than Christmas Day, itself. It’s when we put up our main Christmas tree in the family room, officially start listening to Christmas music, and it’s also the first day of our 24/7 Christmas movie-watching schedule. To say we’re excited about the fact that it’s just a few days away is an alarming understatement.

Elf is typically the very first holiday movie that we pop into the player (the DVD intro screen alone is enough to make us jump up and down with glee), and then we usually move on to The Family Stone and Love ActuallyThe Holiday is another one of those immediately-watched Christmas movies, as is White Christmas. It’s nonstop, I tell ya! Keep reading for a list of 20 Christmas movies (from classic to new) that we suggest you set aside or order now before Friday.

So, tell me—did I miss any of your favorites? Honestly, I could have gone on and on, and after reading this list to my sister over the weekend, she promptly noted all sorts of movie titles that I forgot (A Charlie Brown Christmas!) so this list is certainly not all-encompassing.
