Holiday season is in full effect, which means embracing the spirit in full by wearing all the ugly Christmas sweaters, eating a little too much at all your family gatherings, and, of course, watching as many holiday movies as you can.

Most channels are feeling festive around this time of year, airing some of the jolliest films to get the holiday spirit flowing through your system. Although streaming services offer a pretty wide selection, nothing beats a family movie night with fuzzy blankets, hot cocoa, and a viewing of Elf for the 10th time.

Whether you’re a sucker for the classics (plenty of time to watch A Christmas Carol) or you’re in the mood for a romcom (The Holiday), we’ve gathered a list of all the best holiday movies airing between Dec. 16 and Christmas Day. So take notes, gather your favorite people, bake some cookies, and enjoy the magical experience of a festive film in honor of the most wonderful time of the year.
