Once again, the hottest holiday in the year comes. As a traditional holiday, Christmas in many countries is now also a celebration of the secular part of the holiday. People could have now many ways to celebrate this holiday, like shopping, decorating, gifting, enjoying delicious food, playing Christmas games, etc. among which watching Christmas movies becomes more and more popular in most families.
For most people, Christmas is a time to be with family. Apart from the Christmas meal and gifts, it would be an excellent choice to watch movies together to experience the holiday spirit. Today, I’ve collected some most popular Christmas movies suitable for kids and family for watching on Christmas 2012. Check them below. At least one would meet your needs.
A Charlie Brown Christmas: A perennial fave that addresses the material and spiritual aspects of the holiday season, A Charlie Brown Christmas offers families a break from the buy!buy!buy! clamor surrounding Christmas. The storyline follows the ups and downs of Charlie Brown, initially depressed by the commercialism of Christmas, but ultimately buoyed by directing the school pageant, a pep talk from Linus, and the strength of a sad little fir tree. Kids and parents alike will enjoy bopping along the Vince Guaraldi’s iconic musical score.
The Polar Express: In this family film about believing, Tom Hanks directed and voiced many of the characters in this excellent take on the classic children’s novel. A little boy who doesn’t believe in Santa rides the magical Polar Express to the North Pole to find out the truth.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas: With two versions to choose from now, the animated version still wins – mostly because of the memorable songs that almost everyone young and old can sing from memory. This Dr. Seuss story about the Grinch who hated Christmas never
Elf: This new family friendly holiday classic features SNL funny man Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf, who has lived at Santa’s Workshop with the other elves his whole life. Discovering that he’s human, Buddy finds himself in NYC dealing with the real world as he tries to get to know his father who incidentally, is on the naughty list.
Frosty the Snowman: An animated cartoon about Frosty the snowman, who springs to life when the children place a magic hat upon his head. We all know the song, “Frosty the Snowman,” and the upbeat wintery feeling it brings. This wonderful favorite is available on the same DVD as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
Miracle on 34th Street: Kris Kringle–unbeknownst to cynical, market-minded adults, the real Santa Claus–is hired to play himself at Macy’s Department Store, New York City. He finds himself in a situation where he must convince an unbelieving little girl, and others, that he is the real Santa. NR
Home Alone: Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is accidentally left home alone by his family while they fly off to France for Christmas vacation. Kevin loves his freedom, delightedly gorging himself on sweets and staying up late — until he is forced to defend his home from a team of burglars. But Kevin learns that self-defense can be fun too, as he goes about flying to defeat the bumbling thieves. Rated PG.
Veggie Tales: The Star of Christmas: If you’re looking for a movie that reinforces the biblical Christmas story without simply retelling it, then get this Veggie Tales movie. Favorite characters Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber star as Cavis and Millward, two producers of a huge Christmas musical spectacular with more lights and sparkle than anyone has ever seen. But when the church across town plans a Christmas pageant for the same night, the competition is on. This adventure will teach kids about loving each other and God’s love for us through the gift of His Son, Jesus. Not only is this movie fun to watch, it’s a great introduction for young children to the significance of the Christmas story.
Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town: This classic Christmas movie is narrated by Fred Astaire, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s an historical, yet fictional account of how Santa Claus came to be. The movie follows Kris Kringle from his childhood to becoming an adult, meeting and falling in love with the future Mrs. Claus, and bringing happiness and joy to children with special gifts and toys. Just like other stop-animation specials from that time, this one is also filled with catchy tunes including the famous title song, sung by Astaire. Couple this movie with Rudolph for an entire history lesson (sort of) on the origins of legendary Christmas
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: “Pull up an ice block and lend an ear” to this fantastic tale of how Rudolph became Santa’s most famous and valuable reindeer. Made as a TV special in the 1960s, Rudolph continues to be a classic Christmas movie for kids that each generation falls in love with. More than just a Christmas story, this movie tells the tale of misfits such as an elf who wants to be a dentist, a reindeer with a shiny nose, an explorer who can’t complete his quest, and a snow monster who wants to be loved and how they come together to gain acceptance and find their purposes in life. Lots of memorable music and dialogue make this a movie your kids will want to watch again and again.
Some of these movies are available from Amazon in DVD discs. So, if you want to watch these Christmas DVD movies on your own handsets, like iPad mini or Galaxy S 3, you need to use a DVD to video converter to help you convert Christmas DVD movies to video for your devices.
