Christmas classics – what can we say? Kidzworld has the top 10 Christmas movies.


No. 10: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

 


This classic made-for-TV Christmas movie premiered in 1964. It tells the story of Rudolph, a reindeer with a nose that lights up. He's looking for a place where he belongs. Special guest appearances by the Abominable Snowman and the misfit toys make this movie extra-special.


No. 9: Elf

 


Will Ferrell makes yet another memorable splash on the big screen in Jon Favreau's sweet and hilarious Christmas fable. Ferrell is Buddy, an innocent figure who was raised as an elf in the North Pole by his adoptive father, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart). When Buddy discovers that he's actually a human being, he heads to New York City to reunite with his biological father.


No. 8.5: Mickey’s Christmas Carol

 


When Jacob Marley (played by Goofy) warns Scrooge what his actions will earn him, Scrooge finds himself visited by three spirits: the ghosts of Christmas Past (Jiminy Cricket), Present (the Giant) and Future (Pete). Donald Duck plays Scrooge’s nephew Fred, and Rat and Mole from The Wind in the Willows appear as two charity collectors. Mickey's Christmas Carol makes great use of the entire [kwlink]Disney[/kwlink] stable of characters to tell a timeless story to audiences young and old.


No. 8: The Muppets Christmas Carol

 


The Muppet Christmas Carol is the fourth feature film to star the Muppets, and the first produced after the death of Muppets creator Jim Henson. Released in 1992, it was one of many film adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Gonzo, claiming to be Dickens himself, narrates the story, with the help of Rizzo the Rat. Michael Caine plays Ebenezer Scrooge, with Muppets taking the rest of the parts -- including Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Robin the Frog as Tiny Tim, and Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig.


No. 7: How the Grinch Stole Christmas

 


The original 1966 animated classic is the only version that does justice to Dr. Seuss. In it, the Grinch (a non-human Scrooge) tries to ruin Christmas for the Whos in Whoville by stealing their presents, trees, and holiday treats. Of course, the Grinch has a change of heart and finds love and friendship with the Whos.


No. 6: A Charlie Brown Christmas

 


In this half-hour Christmas special, Charlie Brown becomes the director of the school holiday pageant and goes out with Linus to buy an aluminum tree for the show. Instead, they bring back a forlorn real tree. Our hapless hero finds himself dismayed by the rampant commercialization of the holidays and searches for the true meaning of Christmas.


No. 5: It’s a Wonderful Life

 


What holiday movie list would be complete without this 1946 Frank Capra classic, starring James Stewart? A man about to commit suicide during the holidays because he's financially ruined is stopped by an angel who shows him what life would be like if he'd never existed.


No. 4: Miracle on 34th Street

 


In this sweet 1947 movie, a Macy's executive tries to find a new store Santa. She hires an old man named Kris Kringle who claims to be the one-and-only Santa Claus. Of course, such claims can get you into trouble and Kris ends up being hospitalized for some kind of delusional disorder. Hope comes in the form of a young girl who wants to help Kris prove that he is really and truly Santa.


No. 3: Frosty the Snowman

 


The Frosty the Snowman movie is a classic Christmas movie who's appeal and magic transcend generations. Based off the hit song sung by Gene Autry, this holiday classic continues to bring joy to our hearts each Christmas. Frosty, who is made of a very special kind of snow, the first snow of the year on Christmas eve, as it says in the movie, "well something wonderful is bound to happen!.”


No. 2: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

 


Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) just wants to have a good ole’ fashioned family Christmas at his place, but Karma (or some other unstoppable, twisted force) is working against him. His relatives arrive — including his unwelcome, and terrifying cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) — just in time for all hell to break loose, leaving Clark teetering on the edge of insanity.


No. 1: Home Alone

 


It made Macaulay Culkin the biggest child star on the planet, reigned at the box office for 12 straight weeks and grossed $533 million worldwide, but the best thing about this holiday staple is watching an 8-year-old kid toss burglars Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern a good old-fashioned Christmas beat-down.
