So, before we get to the list of the best that we have compiled for you, here’s a brief description of what makes a movie ‘the best holiday movie’.
Our Holiday Movie rule says: No matter what movie you play or watch on your TV screen, it should feel whimsy, cold, and the feeling of coming together. Family or loved ones coming together should be the description. At least manically, there has to be something in the movie to be a Christmas movie. If it doesn’t resonate with the Christmas day, loved ones, unification, and say snow – it shouldn’t be on the list!
