Countdown to Christmas: 25 Days of Christmas Movies Challenge

The countdown to Christmas is finally here. No list of Christmas movies season is complete without a 25 days of Christmas countdown.

Do you watch 25 Days of Christmas movies every year? Well, I have the list for you.

I love this time of year. It’s an extra reason to spend some much-needed quality time with my family. Over the next 25 days, there will be over 100 opportunities to gather around the family TV, drink hot cocoa, and snuggle with those I love most.

This is a list of 25 all-time favorite Christmas movies to watch with your family.

Includes movie title, year released, rating, run time, and genre(s), all presented in a checklist format. Perfect for a month of family movie nights!

There are 25 days from December 1 to December 25 (Christmas Day). Why not watch a new Christmas movie every day with your family?

Don’t know what to watch? Too many options? I’ve done all the hard work for you. Just follow along and watch one movie each day.
