1. Home alone
We can all agree that Home Alone (closely followed by Home Alone 2) are a quintessential part of the Christmas experience. After all, nothing says happy holidays like a child left alone by his family and targeted by two homicidal burglars, y'know?
2. Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
If you have a doubting Thomas in the family, sit them down and turn on Miracle on 34th Street. The sign-language scene alone will make even the most cynical person believe in Santa and the magic of Christmas.
3. Elf (2003)
Will Ferrell plays the oversized elf who travels from the North Pole to New York City to find his dad. The people of New York are not as enthused by candy canes, syrup and Santa as he is though. Seriously, if you don't like Elf you're nothing but a cotton-headed ninnimuggins.
4. Jingle All The Way (1996)
