The holiday season is almost upon us and with that comes ABC Family’s 25 days of Christmas movie marathon. The marathon begins with The Preacher’s Wife starring Denzel Washington and Whitney Houston. This film follows a pastor and definitely stays true to the real meaning of Christmas. The heartwarming feeling you get when watching the film and Houston’s amazing songs make this a must see Christmas movie.
Also on the lineup is The Polar Express. The animated scenery of the snowy town and the North Pole in this movie is amazing. Even though a hobo and child walking on top of a moving train is dangerous and makes the film a little weird, I find myself watching this movie every year.
The classic and most quoted Christmas movie ever, Elf is also on the list. Starring the hilarious Will Ferrel and Zooey Deschanel, this movie is guaranteed to make you laugh.
The ABC Family original movie Snowglobe makes the lineup as well. If you have ever wanted to live in a perfect Christmassy town, this is the perfect movie for you. It contains a great mix of humor and holiday spirit and will make you realize that your imperfect family traditions are just how you want to spend your Christmas.
