The Christmas Chronicles 2


I only knew of Belsnickel, the curmudgeonly cousin of Santa, from an old episode of The OfficeThe Christmas Chronicles

The Christmas Chronicles


Make it a double feature and watch this 2018 Christmas hit first. Two kids set out to catch Santa on videotape, and end up caught in a whirlwind adventure to save Christmas.

Angela’s Christmas Wish


I was pleasantly surprised to learn this film (and its prequel, Angela’s ChristmasAngela’s Ashes

Alien Xmas

This film from last year was nominated for an academy award, and for good reason; it’s a beautiful, original spin on how an everyday man named Klaus came to be the Santa we all know and love. A must-see.

Trolls Holiday


“Your life is bland right now but that’s ok. Prepare your minds to get blown away!” sings one of the trolls in this movie. Trolls Holiday didn’t quite blow away me or my kid, but it was fun, colorful, and mercifully short.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Universal Pictures

Jim Carey is the only Grinch I will ever need. This version of the classic Dr. Seuss tale hides plenty of adult content that will go straight over your kids’ heads and keep you on the couch all the way through. (“MAX! Fetch me my sedative.”).

White Christmas

Paramount Pictures

Put this on in the background while the kids build an addition to the pillow fort. Though they might not watch ’til the end (it’s over two hours long), the dance scenes will captivate them and the music will fill your home with that classic Christmas feel.

A Trash Truck Christmas


We covered this already in our Best 2020 Christmas Episodes from Toddler Shows

Great British Baking Show Holidays (Seasons 1-3)

BBC Studios

My kid might be an outsider here, but she’ll happily sit down next to me to watch a tv show devoted to all things sugar-spun and outrageously delicious. Great British Baking Show Holidays is pure comfort for these final days of a stressful year.

The Knight Before Christmas


A medieval knight ends up in present-day Ohio and falls for a love-averse teacher, played by Vanessa Hudgens. It’s A Knight’s TaleKate & Leopold

Elf Pets: A Fox Cub’s Christmas Tale


I tolerated this one, but my 3-year-old couldn’t get enough– she loved the sleigh bell-laden soundtrack and magical northern lights. Take comfort in knowing it’s less than half an hour long.

A Storybot Christmas


If you can get past the squeaky voices, you’ll be pleased with this Christmas short. Little Bo is dismayed when she thinks her presents aren’t good enough for her friends, which spoke to the mom in me who is still anxiously trying to pick out the perfect presents for my kid’s teachers.
