On top of eggnog, the smell of a pine tree farm, and all of the festive food, we most look forward to the movies when the holidays are finally upon us. Every year, we make a list in our heads of the handful of movies that we need to watch before Christmas. There are mad cap comedies, raunchy romps, family stories, and classic, black and white favorites.

There are so many great holiday movies, it’s really difficult to pick the best ones. But not only did we pick our No. 1 holiday movie of all time, but we also ranked (in honor of the year 2021) our top 21 holiday films in the history of seasonal cinema. Keep scrolling to see how the ranking turned out and to check if your favorite movie made the cut.
