Animation Christmas Celebration

Everyone loves a good Christmas animation movie! Whether you’re 2 and can’t fully understand what’s going on or whether you’re 65 with your grandchildren! A good Christmas animation is good for the soul! Below is a list of some of my top favorite Christmas Animation movies available here at the library!

Shrek the Halls

Shrek and his group of rascals put their own spin on Christmas traditions! Just a little laughter to start off my Christmas season. Shrek is perfect for every season, but he’s even more amazing for the Christmas season!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

A mailman tells the origin story of Santa Claus. Everyone has to watch this the second Christmas season comes! It’s a classic and is definitely one of my most beloved.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Jack Skellington, the king of Halloweentown, discovers Christmas and tries to bring it to his town! This movie is perfect for Halloween and Christmas, my two favorite Holidays!!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The Grinch who lives on the outskirts of Whoville, thinks to teach the Whos a lesson by stealing Christmas! I only like the one with Jim Carrey in it just because of his portrayal of the Grinch! He did such a wonderful job!!

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

The misfit Reindeer Rudolph journeys to find himself with a group of misfit friends. This classic tale has always been one of my favorites because who doesn’t love the tale of Rudolph!?

Disney’s A Christmas Carol

The classic animated tale of a scrooge on a tale of redemption. I only like Disney’s version, not any other kind, mainly because of how Disney took the story and made it wild and wonderful!

Christmas Movies That Aren’t Full of Christmas Cheer

We all like Christmas movies. The cheer and the festivities in them bring us all happiness, but sometimes there’s only so much cheer we can take. Sometimes, watching Christmas movie after Christmas movie gets old. Don’t feel bad about it! 

Below is a list I compiled for those people tired of the same Hallmark or Lifetime Christmas movies! The movies generated below aren’t your typical Christmas movies, but they do revolve around Christmas!

The Family Stone

Starring Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson, and Dermot Mulroney, this Christmas movie is filled to the brink with dysfunctional family drama. (APL)

Starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon, not only is the family dysfunctional (is there a theme here?) but it’s a comedy as well! (BOTH APL AND DPL)

The Holiday

Starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black. Two women needing a break from their lives, decide to switch houses and lives during Christmastime.  (BOTH APL AND DPL)
