White Christmas

Best Classic Christmas Movies - White Christmas - White Christmas

White Christmas is probably the best Christmas movie of all-time. It’s got amazing singing and dancing numbers, some romance, a little drama and a lot of fantastic humour. Not to mention the largest tinsel-covered Christmas Trees seen on stage. I’m not usually a ‘old’ movie fan, but this one is timeless.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Best Classic Christmas Movies - Wonderful Life

Although not one of my personal favourites, for many this is *the* Classic Christmas Movie, and no other one will ever replace it. Watching It’s a Wonderful Life at Christmastime is basically as common as eating turkey or opening presents.

Miracle on 34th Street

Best Classic Christmas Movies - Miracle on 34th

Although the remake is not frowned upon, there’s something about the original Classic Christmas movie Miracle on 34th Street that lives on in our hearts. It’s one of the reasons why ‘Christmas in New York’ is such an iconic theme. It’s one of the few Christmas Movies to actually win an Academy Award (three, in fact), and be nominated for Best Picture!
