5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey's take on the Dr. Seuss' classic is iconic. The 2000 film took live action to the next level and left us all full of Christmas joy. If this isn't on your holiday watch list, then you need to add it now!

4. Elf

Will Ferrell is priceless as the oversized elf who ventures far away from the North Pole to search for his father. Those who love it are obsessed with its mix of zany humor and earnest emotion.

3. A Charlie Brown Christmas

Some holiday movies just make you feel good when they come on. To us, that's this movie. If there was ever a movie that made you want to take home the saddest, baddest tree at the nursery, this is the one.

2. A Christmas Story

This 1983 classic has stood the test of time. Every Christmas season we follow along on Ralphie's journey to get his Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred-shot range model air rifle!  Never forget, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid."

1. It's A Wonderful Life

Sometimes movies are considered masterpieces for a reason. And this is one of those times. It's funny, heartwarming, profound, and an annual reminder that the holidays are about more than presents thanks to Jimmy Stewart's turn as George Bailey.
