Falling for Christmas (2022)

This new film has Lindsay Lohan, who plays a recently engaged heiress. She experiences amnesia after a skiing accident and finds herself being helped by a local bed and breakfast owner and single father, played by Chord Overstreet.

Home Alone (1990)

Christmas is incomplete without this movie starring Macaulay Culkin, who became an international superstar after playing Kevin in "Home Alone." His family accidentally flies out for the holiday season without him, and then comic things happen when the boy finds himself defending his house from two thieves, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)

Christmas films generally don't get sequels, but "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" came out in 1992, and turned out to be as good as the original. In this film, Kevin manages to lose his family at the airport after he boards a flight to New York. His family, on the other hand, ends up in Florida. He manages to get a room at the Plaza Hotel, and then meets the Sticky Bandits again.

Jingle All the Way (1996)

Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger lists all seven of Santa’s reindeer while running through snowy streets and dodging his rival Turbo Man enthusiast, portrayed by Sinbad, in the comedy.

Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

The animated "Grinch" special, based on Dr. Seuss’s classic story, arrived on TV screens in 1966 and has been a must-watch since then. Giving it a comic twist is Ron Howard’s reimagined holiday gem, starring Jim Carrey. The comedian slips into the mean one’s fuzzy shoes to bring the children’s tale to life.

A Christmas Story (1983)

The 1940s-set family comedy is a festive story about a child who spends the season rattling off to anyone who will listen that he wants a Red Ryder BB gun from Santa.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011)

In this comedy, the titular characters go on a foggy adventure. It is over the top and probably inappropriate, but a joy to watch during holidays.
