What's this? When Jack Skellington came to Christmas Town 21 years ago, a holiday cult classic was born. When it comes to oddball adventures in gift-giving, Nightmare is hard to beat.

#4. Home Alone

Home Alone was the hit of the season in 1990, holding the #1 spot at the box office for twelve straight weeks and going on to spend a decade as the highest-grossing comedy of all time.

#3. Die Hard

It's easy to forget that Die Hard takes place at the Nakatomi Corporation's Christmas party, but it totally counts as a Christmas movie. Remember that the next time you get to pick. Yippee-ki-yay.

#2. Love Actually

Why settle for one Christmas movie when you can have like nine of them all smashed into 136 minutes of rom-com perfection? Christmas is all around me...and so the feeling grows.

#1. A Christmas Story

Did you get your very own Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle? No? Well, at least you didn't shoot your eye out. A Christmas Story captured a unique blend of humor and nostalgia that has made it a Christmastime staple for over thirty years, earning it the top spot on our list.

Happy holidays!
