9 Favorite Christmas Movies, Ranked | 24 Days of Dash of Serendipity

I would consider myself to be a self-proclaimed Christmas movie expert. I just love them. I hardly ever find myself not watching one at all times during the Christmas season, even if it's just the Hallmark channel for background noise. 

I was just going to list out some of my favorites, but as I started writing this post I got more invested in the movies I was included and knew I had to rank them. It makes this post so much more interesting. 

So the rankings in this post are totally not official, just my opinion. I truly would be happier watching any holiday movie than studying for finals if we're being real. 

I wonder what y'alls favorite movies during this time of year are, I'd love to know!

9. A Christmas Prince

Where to watch? Netflix. 
This movie was cute and totally hallmark style in just about everything about it. I added it to the list because it is brand new and easily accessible considering most people have access to a Netflix account. It's a good one to watch early in the season because it isn't too Christmas heavy, theme-wise.

8. Disney's A Christmas Carol 

Where to watch? Amazon, Apple 
I like this version of A Christmas Carol the best and while it can be a little slow it's definitely entertaining! I remember watching this for the first time when it came out while I was in middle school in one of my classes just before Christmas break. Remember when the day before Christmas break was filled with in-class parties and movie days? Much nicer than finals I'd say. 

7. The Santa Clause

Where to watch? Amazon, Apple 
I appreciate the first Santa Clause movie way more than the others, anyone else? I feel like the other ones are constantly played on ABC Family Freeform. Justice for the original Santa Clause movie! 

6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas? 

Where to watch? Netflix, Apple 
I really like the Grinch and will watch it if I catch it on TV, but probably won't go out of my way to turn it on. I do love the part where the Grinch can't find anything to wear after having a mini fashion show in front of his mirror before finally exclaiming, "I have nothing to wear, I'm not going!" Is that not just the most relatable thing?

5. The Polar Express 

Where to watch? Amazon, Apple 
This movie kind of used to scare me when I was younger, but I loved it at the same time. Fun fact: I wrote in a letter to Santa one year that I wanted one of the sleigh's bells that year for Christmas. Little did I know, that when I was getting the mail a few days later as a part of my chores I would find a package of bells and thus the legend of Santa was ruined for me. Haha, still enjoy the movie though! 

4. Love Actually

Where to watch? Amazon, Apple
While people might consider this a Christmas classic, I only first saw it a few years ago. I do love it, but because it is still fairly new to me it didn't make it quite that high on my list. I love the storylines and how they all intertwine. Have you seen the meme relating Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to the movie? 

3. Once Upon a Christmas / Twice Upon a Christmas 

Where to watch? Hallmark Channel (Dec 17 at 1am!), DVD
I may be the only person in the world who genuinely loves this movie, probably because it has been one of my favorites for as long as I can rememebr. ABC Family used to play it all of the time during the Christmas season until about five years ago. The year they took it off I couldn't find it anywhere, but now it looks like the Hallmark channel will be playing it super late at night on December 17! I'd recommend recording it. It's a cute movie about Santa's daughter who tries to save Christmas for a distressed family. 

2. The Holiday 

Where to watch? Amazon, Hulu, Apple 
The Holiday is such a feel good movie!! I love it. I love Jack Black in the movie and the old neighbor man. 

1. Elf 

Where to watch? Amazon, Apple
It would be a crime if I didn't have Elf at the number one spot on my list. It's a true favorite of mine that I probably watch a few times a season. I constantly find myself quoting lines from the movie year-round. My favorite part? Buddy's trip to the doctor's office.
