List Rules Vote up your favorite Xmas films that were released in the 1990s

The best '90s Christmas movies are super diverse and unique. Some of them are gritty and adventurous, while others are sweet and family-oriented. Do you prefer something a little darker, a little more fantastical? If so, you might vote for Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, a stop-motion dark fantasy romp through an imaginary world of creatures and misfits. Looking for something a bit lighter? Maybe Home Alone is up your alley. The story of a grade school kid named Kevin whose family accidentally leaves for vacation without him, Home Alone is packed with hijinks from top to bottom. When thieves target Kevin’s house, he has to protect himself and his home with every trick he can muster, from boxing glove boobie traps to threatening movie quotes.


This list of the best ‘90s Christmas movies also features plenty of family friendly entertainment, including
Jingle All the Way, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad as stressed out fathers seeking an exclusive Christmas toy. For a more sentimental story, look no further than Miracle on 34th Street, a remake of the 1947 classic tale of Santa Clause in New York City.
