Mostly A’s: A Retro Christmas Movie

Sure, they might have made a third Santa Clause movie, but older Christmas movies have endured for a reason: They’re fabulous and timeless. So indulge in the warm, sepia-tinged nostalgia that Christmas brings and watch some of these classic films that even your grandma will love.

Movies: White Christmas, It’s A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol (the George C. Scott made-for-television version, of course), The Bishop’s Wife, Miracle on 34th Street (really, either version, even the one with Mara Wilson), Meet Me in St. Louis, Holiday Inn

 

Mostly B’s: A Funny Christmas Movie

Maybe you’re not the biggest fan of Christmas, or maybe you’re practically another one of Santa’s elves. Either way, you know how to have a good time. After all, what better way to celebrate any holiday than laughing at how it’s all a little ridiculous?

Watch: Scrooged, A Christmas Story, Elf, Bad Santa, The Santa Clause, The Muppet Christmas Carol

Maybe, but we don’t blame you. Go ahead, watch a Christmas movie and live out your romantic fantasy, complete with a happy ending.
