Movies That Make You Go “Ho Ho Ho”

The Top Five “Can’t-Wait-For-The-Holidays” Flicks

The holidays are filled with memories of overzealous relatives squeezing the stuffing out of you, delicious food piled high on your plate, and movies that make you laugh so hard you can’t catch your breath. We have compiled a list of our favorites that beg for you to sit back and chillax with the family this winter season.

Home Alone

(The original, not sequels two through five)
If you’re a parent, then this one made you think twice before you went on vacation. Home Alone instilled paranoia into one and all – who among us hasn’t misplaced a kid or two for at least a micro-second? – while making it a funny holiday fiasco that’s deliciously watchable for the entire family.


Will Ferrell is a comic genius, and this timeless treasure offers you plenty of inappropriate laugh opportunities. Hugging a less-than-friendly raccoon? Eating a spaghetti and syrup combo? Deciding whether to be naughty or nice? Elf is hilarious!

Die Hard

(The original, not sequels two through five)
Deemed one of the best action-packed Christmas-themed films, Die Hard gave birth to the popular phrases “Yippie-Ki-Yay, Motherf***r!” and “Nine million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister.” Suspense, drama, and tons of laughs.

Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Jim Carrey stars in this childhood-book-turned-movie film that’s chock full of holiday antics and valuable lessons. Another takeaway: Love your neighbor even if his heart is “two sizes too small.”

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Even though this was a sequel for the Vacation series, it was a hoot. Desperate to have a “fun old-fashioned family Christmas”, Clark Griswold decorates his home with over 25,000 lights that create a temporary citywide power shortage. Other memorable mishaps occur, but he and his family end up having a wonderful holiday.
