Best Christmas Movies for Family 2020

One of our favorite family holiday traditions is to snuggle up together on the couch and watch Christmas movies. It is one of the best times of the year for family movie nights because it is cold and dark and the only thing that sounds good is staying indoors and watching movies.

Fortunately, there are so many good family Christmas movies. This Christmas movie list could have been pages and pages long. However, I rounded up some of the best Family movies our family enjoys. There are some new Christmas movie favorites for 2020.

This Christmas movie list includes holiday classics, animated features and tried and true favorites almost everyone loves! There is a Christmas movie for everyone on this list. It can be hard to find movies that appeal to all ages especially if you have young kids, tweens and teens.
