The 15 Tropes That Show Up In Every Christmas Movie

List Rules
Vote up the tropes you're tired of seeing.

It's time to fully embrace the Christmas season without judgment. You know what that means - holiday movies packed with beloved Christmas tropes. 

While you might love a good seasonal film, it's just a fact that some of the best Christmas movies include the same tired themes and storylines you've seen a thousand times before. Christmas will be ruined if Santa doesn't arrive! We have to teach the angry Grinch the true meaning of Christmas! Gifts mean nothing without the gift of family! Do these sentiments sound familiar? They should. You've only seen them in every Christmas movie to ever be created. 

While each trope manages to transforms itself into a tear-inducing storyline, it's understandable if you're ready for some fresh content.
