With so many festive Christmas events for kids and families—the return of the Bronx Zoo Holiday Light Show, a loop around Macy's Santaland and so on—it's kind of hard not to get excited about winter. After a long day exploring new happenings, you'll want to curl up on the couch and get cozy while watching classics (Miracle on the 34th St, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer) or new favorites (Elf, The Polar Express).
Fortunately, our list of flicks has 'em all! Check out our go-to Christmas movies, grab your loved ones and enjoy! Don't forget to check out our roundup of family Christmas movies on Netflix and December events calendar, too!
