Whether your Christmas outfit means dressing up in a Santa Costume, or dressing up like Clark Griswold, there isn’t a shortage of great costume ideas when the holidays roll around. And if you’re looking for some last minute Christmas costume inspiration then why not turn to cinema for some great costume ideas?
Spending time with friends and family is one of the best things about the holidays, and people have all kinds of traditions that get carried on year after year. From White Elephant exchange to ugly Christmas sweaters, Yule Tide traditions really are something to look forward to year after year. In my house watching a few Christmas movies is a requirement during the holidays.
So here is my own top ten list of Christmas movies, in no particular order. Even though some of them may not have a Christmas message (and probably aren’t kid friendly), all of them at least have Santa hats and Christmas lights in them, and that’s all it took to qualify them for the list.
1. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
2. A Christmas Story
3. The Nightmare Before Christmas
4. It’s a Wonderful Life
8. Home Alone
9. Die Hard
10. Love Actually
At a minimum, you’ll be entertained watching these Christmas classics, and if you’re done dressing up this year, maybe you’ll get some great Christmas costume ideas for next year’s parties.
