Top 3 ‘Classic’ Christmas Movies

Yes, there are a lot of Christmas-themed movies out there. Yes, many of these are considered classics. However, there are a handful of holiday films made in the 80’s and 90’s, which are considered, at least to a Xmas buff like myself, as the absolute best of the best.

Home Alone (Part I and 2): While these are two separate movies made in the early 1990’s, it’s impossible to pick a favorite. Well, maybe slightly, but the point is that these movies are, without a doubt, what is known as the crème de la crème of Christmas movies. Kevin and the rest of the McAllister gang plus the Sticky/Wet Bandits make these films not only super entertaining, but also timeless – considering that they are over 30 years old.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: Another oldie (1989), but goldie. How can you go wrong with Chevy Chase at the helm of a hilarious, clever and relatable holiday film all rolled into one? 

Scrooged: Director Richard Donner knew that a comedic take on the classic Charles Dickens’ story A Christmas Carol (1843) had to be done and none other than Bill Murray could play the part of cynical Frank Cross who is visited by three ghosts of past, present and future on the night of Christmas Eve to bring back to life his festive spirit.
