10 Holiday Movies To Watch On Christmas Eve

0 2973

The Object of todays post was to list places to go on Christmas Eve in Kansas. I don’t know about Christmas Eve in the big city but here there will be nothing open except Quick Trip for those last-minute batteries and McDonald’s, which is like the dope house in my opinion. McDonald’s is trapping all night every night chasing that money.


The streets will be dead, not a zombie to be found. We’ll they should be. The snow and ice have already started to accumulate for our traditional white Christmas. Families are gathered and awaiting the big day. No one has to work in the morning so what do we do? I’ll tell you what we do; we snuggle up under a blanket and watch those Holiday classics on the TV set. Every family has their favorites, but if you need some help thinking of a couple of movies to watch, here are my own personal top ten Holiday movies.

Ten Holliday Movies To Watch On Christmas Eve

10. Jingle All The Way – 1996

Barely making it in the last slot on my list, this movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and comedian Sinbad. The hilarious classic tale of two parents scouring the town for that sold out toy on Christmas Eve. Let the games begin.

9. The Muppet Christmas Carol – 1992

This story has been told over and over again, but it’s the most entertaining when told by America’s favorite Puppet gang. I Love these guys. Long live Jim Hanson.

8. A Christmas Story – 1983

It’s only low on my list because we’ve all seen it 7 million times. It only comes on every channel every hour on the hour for a week straight every year. You still find your self-watching it though. You just can’t deny a classic. “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

7. Arthur Christmas – 2011

It’s the most recent movie on my list and the only animated one. If you haven’t seen it it’s an excellent family choice. They tell the story of Santa Clause in a modern-day setting. No more reindeer moving at light speed. Santa uses modern-day technology and the film is fun for kids and adults alike.

6. Gremlins – 1984

This 80s classic was produced by the great Steven Spielberg. This kid gets a Gremlin as a pet for Christmas. If only it came with instructions. Just add water and all hell breaks loose.

5. The Long Kiss Goodnight – 1996

Geena Davis and Samuel Jackson take us on a Christmas action ride. This is the one you put on after the little people are asleep. Geena’s character has amnesia until some old friends come to remind her of the killer she truly is.

4. Bad Santa – 2003

Another film that may not be suitable for the little people, but good laughs and light action for the adults. It stars Billy Bob Thornton and Bernie Mack. In my book this a Christmas classic.

3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation  – 1989

Chevy Chase made us all fall out laughing with his epic Christmas Vacation where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.

2. Home Alone – 1990

Who could forget Macaulay Culkin being left alone in a rich neighborhood ruining Joe Pesci’s house robbing plot. No matter what age you’ll laugh and root for the kid.

  1. Die Hard – 1988

Yea I said it. On Bruce Willis’s Christmas holiday some violent crooks take hostages and wage war. This is by far the bloodiest and most vulgar Christmas movie of all times. One of the best action movies of all times.


So there is my list and I’m sorry if I left your favorite movie out but like
I said this my list. Ten movies that will keep the family up till Santa arrives.

Marcus J. Clark is not a human being, but an experience. An energy that revolves around art, music, comic books and Film. A Gift to the free world containing supernatural artistic powers to transport every open mind to the contradiction that is The Savage Wonderland.
