Top 7 Family Friendly Christmas Movies

by Alli

Do you have a list of must-watch Christmas movies? I do! Today I’m sharing my all-time favorite family-friendly Christmas movies.

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without watching my top 7 movies. I’ve been watching some of these movies since I was a little girl and now I watch them with my grandkids.

Family-Friendly Christmas Movie Night Tips

Use the tips below to have an epic family-friendly Christmas movie night! 

  • Schedule Christmas movie night! 
  • Choose the family-friendly Christmas movie (decisions, decisions).
  • Dim the regular lights and turn on the Christmas tree lights.
  • Have lots of comfy pillows (pillow fight, anyone?)
  • Don’t forget the blankets/throws for snuggling.
  • Make lots of yummy snacks – Don’t forget the popcorn and Mocha Punch – it’s a family favorite! 
  • Wear Christmas PJs or have an ugly Christmas sweater contest. (These matching family PJs are perfect for Christmas movie night!)

Family-Friendly Christmas Movies Are My Favorite

Holiday Movie Night - Family Friendly Christmas Movies

I love spending time with my family and watching Christmas movies on a cold, winter night is so much fun. We like to watch movies that the entire family can enjoy and I think you will love these family-friendly Christmas movies.

We took the grandkids to ride The Polar Express in Bryson City, NC a few years ago and it really made the movie come to life. You’ll notice that it’s one of my top 7 movies.

No, I didn’t wear my PJs. The grandkids did, but I also saw lots of adults wearing pajamas. It was so much fun.
