Movies to watch for a fresh Christmas

5 Fresh Christmas Videos you need to watch:

1. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

This is my favorite Christmas movie of all time. You just can’t beat some hilarity from good ol Chevy Chase. If you are reading this because you have never seen “Christmas Vacation”, stop right now, go to the nearest video store, and rent this fresh classic.

The undisputed gem of the National Lampoon ‘Vacation’ series, the plot can be summed up very simply: idealistic family man Clark Griswold wants to host the perfect old-fashioned fun family Christmas. As all of us idealistic family men have discovered, there is no such thing as a perfect holiday, and that just about sums it up. It has squirrels, crazy relatives, and boss kidnappings. What more could you ask for out of a fresh Christmas hit.

2. Elf

Santa, I know him! This movie totally bonkers: a human baby, aka Buddy the elf, anciently ends up on the north pole and grows up among the elf community that supports Santa Claus before getting sent off to New York.

What’s not to love about Buddy, he eats spaghetti covered in syrup, smarties and pop tarts; he gets drunk in the mail room of his father’s office, and his young half-brother shows him to ask a girl out on a date.

3. Bad Santa

For all of you who can’t quite get into the Christmas spirit, “Bad Santa” is a massive preemptive strike against all of the insufferable sentimentality you might be subjected to this time of the year.

This movie is every bit as entertaining and funny as Elf and Christmas Vacation but  is all about bad intentions. This movie, especially in its powerhouse first half, displays such a commitment to mean-spiritedness that you can’t help but love it.

4. Home Alone

This movie was da bomb.com when I was growing up a 90’s. It first came out in 1990, and more than a decade later, this movie *still* remains a fresh classic.

The story is simple, really: young Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) gets left at home after his family forgets him on their way to the airport to fly to Paris for Christmas vacation.

And from there, the fun begins. While Kevin is home by himself, two bumbling, nincompoop burglars (known as the “Wet Bandits”), set their sights on Kevin’s house. He figures this out and sets the house up with all sorts of tricks and traps, to out-maneuver these two clowns.

5. How The Grinch Stole Christmas

And last but not least you have a Christmas classic that is always a fresh watch.

It has a green Grinch, Cindy-Who from Whoville, a dog with antlers, and a “You’re a  mean one Mr. Grinch Theme Song”.

It has survived the test of time coming out in 1966. It is a must watch every Christmas for a good laugh. I highly recommend this excellent a holiday classic to everyone, especially all you Dr. Seuss fans who have not seen it. When you watch it prepare for a FTD time.

  1. Home Alone always makes an show. Brilliant film. Great blog

    Merry christmas!

    • Thanks for the comment. It’s hard to beat the Home Alone series around the holidays.

  2. Hello Blake! Thank you for visiting my site and I’m glad you like my post, Mystical Celebration of Christmas. Blessings and love & light!!!

  3. Bad Santa is my #1 for sure. Such a demented movie yet so sweet. Kind of like a Rated R Hallmark special.

    Oh, and I’ve been meaning to give you this fresh gem I saw spray painted on the wall at my son’s hip hop class: “Respect my fresh!” I’m not sure how to use it in a sentence, but I’m sure it packs a punch.

    • hahaha “Respect my fresh” that’s awesome! I’ll definitely have to add it to the “fresh dictionary” when I update it. Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. I need to see Bad Santa. Have never seen it!

    • It’s a good movie. Has plenty of scenes that will give you a good laugh. Just not very appropriate for the kiddies. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
