50 Best Christmas Movies for Kids Of All Ages (Parents Will Love Them Too!)

best Christmas movies for all ages

Despite the summer’s heat still warming the air, Christmas will be here before you know it, and no matter what else is going on in the world, if you have children, you simply must get yourself and them in the Christmas spirit.

There are all kinds of ways we go about doing this. We hang our decorations; we go for drives to look at everyone else’s Christmas lights; we listen to Christmas music on the radio, and we start planning out our perfect Christmas dinner menu months in advance.

We also watch Christmas movies, and we share the best ones with our children.

If you’re unsure about which Christmas movies to watch with your kids this season, here are 50 of our favorites.
