Ranking the Best Christmas Movies of All Time

Updated: Dec 20, 2021

It's the most wonderful time of the year and, if you're in the spirit, the season of Christmas movies. At RumbleRank, we want to help settle the debate - what's the definitive ranking of Christmas movies? Are you nostalgic for the black and white classics? Or do you appreciate more modern festiveness?

We included a list of 17 classics for you to rank yourself ranging from the old (It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th St) to the more current day and age (Elf, Four Christmases). Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? You decide!

A few things to keep in mind about our list... We only chose the original entry in a series; no sequels. Count the original as the entire franchise. Also, the entries here are *fairly* family friendly (Die Hard gets a pass. Sorry Bad Santa). You'll also notice that, for the sake of time, certain titles represented in the cover photo below are not present. We're happy to hear which omissions you humbugs find the most egregious.

Follow the button below to rank our list. The following movies are featured:

A Christmas Story

Home Alone

The Santa Clause

Miracle on 34th Street

It's a Wonderful Life

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
