The holidays are being celebrated very differently this year, and for many of us who are used to being surrounded by friends and family during this time, we will be transitioning into staying home & celebrating virtually instead. Personally, I have found it harder to get into the holiday spirit, which is why I’m writing this blog to share with you my 10 favourite holiday movies that I’ll be binging this weekend to get the holiday spirit going! Keep reading to find my top picks.

Happiest Season

With very few new movies released this year, I am so happy that this movie made it out in time for the holidays! This movie is available on Prime Video and showcases a family holiday filled with love, drama, tears and laughter. If you’re looking for a heartwarming movie to up your spirit, this one is for you. 

The Holiday

Another heartwarming movie, The Holiday is a must in my books. The movie tells a tale of four people who were on course to spend their holidays alone, and end up finding love on the other side of the world.  

Home Alone

Home alone, in my opinion, is the most iconic holiday movie, and no matter how old I get I will always watch this movie during the holiday season. Home Alone is a great movie to watch as a family, and always brings lots of laughs to the room.  


If you have kiddos in the house, I’m sure you have already seen this movie 5000 times, and in your case, time to make it 5001. If you haven’t seen Frozen yet, this year is the time to change that. Yes, it is a children’s movie, but who doesn’t like to feel like a carefree child every now and again. 


This family comedy is another classic holiday movie in my books. Elf is a spirited and funny movie that is perfect for a family movie night. No matter what age you are, this movie is guaranteed to bring laughter to everyone. 

The Miracle on 34th Street

A classic holiday movie, The Miracle on 34th street is all about making people believe in the magic of the holidays. This movie is available to watch now on Disney+.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Another great family movie, the Nightmare Before Christmas, is an award-winning film. The cartoon comedy will definitely boost your holiday spirit as you follow the misadventures of Jack Skellington.

Die Hard

Die Hard is always overlooked as a holiday movie, but I promise you it’s a good one! However, this one is definitely more suited for adults. 

The Grinch

No matter how old you are, your never too old for Dr. Suess. The grinch is an absolute holiday classic and is bound to put even the biggest grinch in the holiday spirit. You can watch this one with the kids, or by yourself, I won’t judge. I recently watched this movie on Netflix, such a classic!

A Bad Moms Christmas

Last but certainly not least, A Bad Moms Christmas is a relatable and funny movie about being an adult during the holiday season. If you’re ever feeling stressed or overwhelmed, this movie shows you that you are not alone! 

I hope you enjoy my holiday movie picks. Happy holidays!
