The countdown till Christmas is on! With 22 days left between now and Santa’s touch down, maybe its time curl up by the fire and watch a few Christmas movies with the kids. While there are a ton of new Christmas movies and remakes on the market, why not check out some of the Christmas classics that have stood the test of time? Here are our favourites:
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Created as a TV special in 1964, there’s a reason why this film has become a Christmas classic. With endearing characters and delightful stop motion animation, it’s one that parents can enjoy as much as their kids!
Recommended for ages 4+. Airs on CBC on December 7 & December 14 at 8pm. You can also watch it online anytime by clicking the link above!
A Charlie Brown Christmas
The original Charlie Brown Christmas is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! While the remake has its merits, but there’s a certain charm about the original that keeps us coming back for more!
Not on CBC or Netflix, so get a copy on DVD! Recommended for ages 3+.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Whether you prefer the original or the remake, there’s nothing to enhance your Christmas spirit like this Dr. Seuss classic!
Recommended for ages 4+. Airs on CBC December 14th at 8pm, and December 20th at 7:30pm!
25 years since it’s premiere (gasp!) Home Alone is still one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made. The only downfall about enjoying this one with your kiddies is that they may come up with a few too many wise ideas about how to prank their siblings– or worse… you!
Recommended for ages 10+. Airs on CBC December 13th at 8pm.
