The 10 Best Holiday Movies (Watch One Tonight!)

This holiday season, in addition to our regular Julep contributors, we’re also sharing stories from our Minted artists and designers about how they celebrate this most wonderful time of the year.

Every year during the holidays, I enjoy spending time with my family watching our favorite holiday movies. We like to slow down the hectic pace of the season by snuggling on the sofa with a mug of hot cocoa (with whipped cream, of course!) and just laugh, giggle, and maybe even shed a tear. Here are ten of my favorite holiday movies in no particular order… I hope you enjoy!  —Kerry

    Some holiday movies I can only watch once every few years. The exceptions are Elf and The Grinch plus one not on your list – A Christmas Carol… the one with George C. Scott. It’s perfect.

  2. I adore christmas films. I haven’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life yet, so thats on top of my to-watch list! Merry Christmas!
