Christmas is the only holiday with a genre of movies devoted to it, and that’s something worth celebrating. I polled the LeSabre staff to find what Christmas movies are their favorites. I took those results and threw together a complex point value system ballot of 10 great Christmas movies. Here are the top five.

5. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – 30 points

This stop-motion animated classic from 1964 stood the test of time to be our 5th favorite Christmas movie. It never hit theaters but rather was a television special. It follows the famous reindeer and all his misfit friends as they search for a place they all belong.

4. A Christmas Story – 32 points

One of the most popular Christmas movies of all time, A Christmas Story wasn’t well known until TNT began running it for 24 hours every Christmas. It became a cult favorite because it resonated with just about everyone. It arose nostalgia of childhood Christmases everywhere in America and has become a tradition in many families

3. Home Alone – 43 points

Here’s my personal favorite Christmas movie. Home Alone was the highest grossing live-action comedy until The Hangover 2 and is still the highest grossing Christmas movie of all time, so obviously it’s got something going for it.

2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas – 62 points


A remake of the 1966 animated classic based on the picture book by Dr. Seuss, How The Grinch Stole Christmas resonated with LeSabre students. The remake was made in 2000 and starred Jim Carrey as Mr. Grinch himself. Jim Carrey is irresistible as always, and the classic tale of the Grinch finding his Christmas spirit will likely never be forgotten.

1. Elf – 65 points

People LOVE Elf. It’s widely regarded as a Christmas classic despite only having come out 13 years ago. The fact that it came out when most of the LeSabre staff was only three years old probably has something to do with its high score. We all grew up watching this movie at least once a year, probably more. Take that combined with a great story, Christmas spirit, Will Ferrel, and some seriously funny jokes, and you’ve got a Christmas classic.
