All of us get a nice, fuzzy feeling inside when we watch holiday movies for some reason. And that feeling gets even better if it's a family-friendly film that you can watch with everyone you care about, from young children to adults. 

This holiday season, get on the couch with your family and witness the joy on your little ones’ faces as they enjoy the best Christmas movies we’re listing here.

Your slightly older children will love viewing The Nightmare Before Christmas. The protagonist is Jack Skellington, a resident of Halloween Town. He eventually discovered Christmastown, though, and his obsession with it drove him to kidnap Santa.

Jack Frost

Jack, a husband and absent father, tragically passes away before he can change his priorities. However, on a cold winter day, as his kid is playing his father's harmonica, Jack is revived as a snowman and compensates for the missed time with his son.

Arthur Christmas

Are your little ones curious about how Santa Claus manages to deliver so many gifts in a single evening? The method Santa uses in distributing gifts to every child in the world is demonstrated in this British 3D holiday film. In this movie, when a technical malfunction causes a little girl's gift to be lost, Arthur, Santa's son, decides to deliver it before it's too late. Because of the British accent and Christmas charm in this film, your kids will be incredibly thrilled for Mr. Santa.
