My favorite Christmas movie will always be the Santa Clause but other films I love as well are Grandma got run over by a reindeer, the Patrick Stewart or George C. Scott versions of a Christmas Carol, rise of the guardians, elf, Arthur Christmas, Jim Carrey's the grinch, Santa buddies, the search for Santa Paws, the Santa Clause 3, home alone, and home alone 2. Obviously I prefer Christmas movies featuring Santa but as rise of the guardians and a Christmas Carol can attest to you can also make wonderful Christmas movies about spiritual matters as well.
