Christmas Movies for Boys

  • Gremlins– Both my boys love this movie.  My 5 year old had to hide her eyes a few times, but she enjoyed it too!

  • Swiss Family Robinson–  This is such a fun movie and everyone remembers when the boys come home and are singing “O Christmas Tree”.

  • The Polar Express– Even though this is animated, my older boys still love it.  Maybe that’s it’s more computer generated and looks a little different, it holds their attention.  I love this movie on believing.
  • The Santa Clause– This is one of my favorites on the list.  I love how the main character goes through his transformation, just not physically, but mentally.
  • A Christmas Story– The first time my older son watched this movie was the same year he got a bb gun.  He thought it was hiliarious.
  • Elf–  I wasn’t sure if they would like this movie when we first watched it, but they were cracking up.


  • Home Alone–  My kids have loved this movie since they were little.  It’s so fun to watch kids beat the bad guys. This link is to all three movies!
  • Jack Frost–  This one is sad, but a great story!

  • It’s a Wonderful Life– Since this was in black and white, my kids were a little skeptical about this one, but they really did like it.  It shows that everyone is important and special.
