Best Christmas Movies to Watch with Your Kids

Christmas is hands down my favorite holiday. I just love the warmth it brings to my home and the kind spirit it brings in on everyone. Now that my son is older and my youngest is growing up, I decided to follow one of the traditions my mother used to do with me and my sister and binge watch all the Christmas movies. It creates memories and keeps the little ones busy during this long winter break from school. So this is a #MomWin!

I’ve arranged a great list of my favorite Christmas movies as well as some I plan to watch for the first time. Majority of these movies you can catch during Freeform’s (formerly ABC Family) 25 Days of Christmas lineup. You may also find some of these movies online or can purchase them to add to your collection.

There are so many more movies out there these are just a few. My little ones and I do not stop at Christmas. On the weekends we sit in the couch in our pjs and watch a few movies. I love doing this as it creates great bonding moments and memories to last a lifetime. I also love watching my favorite childhood movies again.

I know your thinking that it is impossible to find the classic movies or maybe they are to expensive to build your own collection, but mom where there is a will there is a way you can download a list of these great classic movies for free. Stream them on your tv or handheld devices for convenient viewing.
