With the colder weather starting to creep in and storefronts beginning to put up their festive displays, it's clear the holiday season is rapidly approaching. In the year 2020, of course, Americans are eager for just about anything worth celebrating, so many people are gearing up for the holly, jolly season earlier than usual and that means watching a holiday movie or two. After running through all of the worthwhile options on Netflix, you may find yourself reaching for a classic before it's even December.

We all have our personal favorites that we return to every year for a requisite comfort-watch to get in the spirit of the season. But which film is the king of holiday cheer? A new survey, commissioned by Tubi and conducted by OnePoll, asked 2,000 Americans which holiday classic they revisit annually. Read on for the list of the top 30 most beloved holiday movies in the U.S., according to the survey, and for more on modern classics, here are 29 Famous Actors You Didn't Realize Were in Hallmark Christmas Movies.
