What better way to get into the Holiday spirit than watching classic Christmas movies? Better yet, why not watch a Christmas movie every day for 12 days leading up to Christmas?
To save you the time and effort, I've compiled a list of the best Christmas movies ever made in order of greatness. Think of it as an "Advent Movie List" of sorts.
Have I missed any of your favorite flicks? Let me know in the comments below.
#12 - December 14
Jingle All the Way
Arnie Schwartzenegger in a Christmas movie... what more could you ask for, really? IT'S TURBO TIME!
#11 - December 15
Miracle on 34th Street
Santa has a little too much to drink, gets institutionalized and a lawyer and Matilda try to prove he's the real deal. BAM Holiday Spirit.
#10 - December 16
Two women decide they need a break from life so they do a VRBO house swap and trade places. Oh, and Jude Law.
#9 - December 17
(Disney's) A Christmas Carol
It takes three ghosts for Ebeneezer Scrooge to realize he's been a bit of a dick his entire life. Bah Humbug!
#8 - December 18
Finally! A movie that explains how Santa manages to deliver billions of presents to children around the world in one night. You're welcome.

A tiny terror terrorizes terrible intruders. An undeniable Christmas classic.
#6 - December 20
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
The Griswalds try to plan the perfect Christmas, but we all know things never go quite as planned.
#5 - December 21
(Dr. Seuss') How the Grinch Stole Christmas
"It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas means a little bit more."
#4 - December 22
Nine plot-lines. A bunch of actors you know and love. The culmination: Christmas Eve.
#3 - December 23
Christmas with the Kranks
The great Christmas classic about an attempt to skip Christmas all-together. Go figure...
#2 - December 24 - Christmas Eve!
The Polar Express
The perfect movie to watch on Christmas Eve... this stunning classic is about always believing in the magic of Christmas.
#1 - December 25 - Christmas Day!
Arguably the best Christmas movie ever made and Will Ferrell's greatest work. Take in the glory that is Elf while opening presents on Christmas Day.
