Christmas is all about watching one Christmas movie after another! Kickstart your holiday movie marathon with these timeless movies chosen by Tiger himself.
I know many of you cool cats out there can already start feeling the holiday spirit – I know I do! An excellent way to kick off the holiday season is by watching our Christmas episode with the kids on our Tiger and Tim YouTube channel.
One of my many favourite holiday traditions is watching some classic Christmas movies with Tim and everyone else! From funny adventures to tearjerkers – these videos and movies for kids and the whole family are sure-fire hits for the long holidays.
- It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Considered one of the best movies of all time, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life is an excellent way to kick off the holidays. I am sure many of you cool cats remember watching this movie in your old video cassette recorder back when you were kids. And now is the perfect time to relieve the inspiring story of George Bailey and his family this Christmas.
- Elf (2003)
I’ve met a friendly elephant elf in one of our funny videos for kids, and I know elves are one of the most hardworking and kind creatures out there. So here’s a movie about an extraordinary elf! Starring funny guy Will Ferrell, ‘Elf’ tells the story of a lost elf trying to find himself in the big city. Kids and kids at heart will laugh out loud with Elf’s hilarious adventures.
- Home Alone (1990)
It’s not Christmas without Kevin and his misadventures at home! This classic is definitely a must-watch for kids with its endless funny jokes caught on video. Have your own Home Alone marathon and watch the sequels. Pass the popcorn, please!
- The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
A one-of-a-kind movie about a skeleton wanting to celebrate Christmas, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ is truly a masterpiece. Not only is this movie a delight for the ears, with its catchy tunes, it is also a visual treat with its classic stop-motion animation. Children and grown-ups will definitely enjoy this holiday classic. Check out the trailer on YouTube before watching it with younger kids.
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas/The Grinch
Dr. Seuss’ beloved tale about a mean, green Christmas-hatin’ creature called Grinch is a Christmas favourite, especially for younger kids. There are several remakes of this holiday classic – the cartoon TV movie released in 1966, the live-action version starring Jim Carrey from 2000, and the CGI-animated release from 2018 are all funny (like our videos!) that kids and grown-ups will love.
- A Christmas Carol
No Christmas is complete without watching ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Based on the beloved novel by Charles Dickens, this movie (and its several retellings) is a heartwarming, timeless piece that everyone in the family will learn a thing or two (or three!) from.
There are many other Christmas movies out there that you and your kids will enjoy for the upcoming holidays. But before you watch them, don’t forget to catch our special Christmas episode on our Tiger and Tim YouTube channel – another kids’ favourite pick (and adults, too)!
