List Rules Films about or set during Christmas time

One of the most telling signs that the holiday season is upon us is when classic Christmas movies begin to flood our TV screens and newer ones hit the big screen. Many of the best Christmas movies feature heartwarming tales that can families can watch together. A lot of these movies are dramas and feature some of the best known stories in cinematic history.

Who can forget James Stewart's portrayal of George Bailey in It's A Wonderful Life? The movie may not have done so well at the box office, but its themes of caring, thoughtfulness and sacrifice, along with the presence of George's guardian angel, has resonated with many and is long considered the best Christmas movie of all time. This doesn't mean there's not a fair share of funny Christmas movies as well. Home Alone, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Elf are three examples of hilarious Christmas movies that people have grown to love over the years. In between laughs, the constant within all of these top movies is family, which is what attracts people to these holiday comedies.
