Top 15 Christmas Movies that help you believe in miracles


Christmas is a time of real magic, miracles, gifts, joy, and family comfort. In order to create a festive mood and keep it throughout the vacation, we offer you a list of the best Christmas movies.

15. Miracle on 34th Street

  • USA, 1994
  • Fantasy
  • Length: 114 minutes
  • IMDb: 6.5

This movie is exactly what a movie about Christmas should be: sweet, kind, a little naive, and full of miracles. Now, it may seem a little long-winded to some. But still, Miracle on 34th Street is good to watch when you have long since stopped believing in Santa and fairy tales.

14. The Polar Express

  • USA, 2004
  • Fantasy, fairy tale, adventure
  • Duration: 100 minutes
  • IMDb: 6.6

Usually, on Christmas Day, everyone sits at home and waits for a miracle while Santa drives reindeer around the globe and dispenses magic. “The Polar Express,” on the other hand, shows a little boy who goes to meet Santa and the miracles himself. A simple tale with an easy-to-understand plot that young children will enjoy.

13. A Christmas Carol

  • USA, 2009
  • Fantasy, Drama
  • Length: 96 minutes
  • IMDb: 6.8

An adaptation of Charles Dickens’s classic story. Although the cartoon has enough dark scenes (three ghosts rather than fairies and good wizards interacting with the hero), it is very life-affirming. It is a timeless story about the importance of being kind.

12. Serendipity

  • USA, Canada, 2001
  • Melodrama, Comedy
  • Duration: 87 minutes
  • IMDb: 6.9

A light romantic comedy about how feelings overcome distance and circumstance and about how real miracles happen when you don’t count on them. Of course, it takes place just before Christmas.

11. Joulutarina

  • Finland, 2007
  • Drama, Fantasy
  • Length: 83 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.0

The title is the same as the other film on the list, but the story is completely different. There is no holiday against all odds and no tinsel, but there is a poignant story about a man who gives people miracles. Try to look at Christmas from the point of view of Santa Claus, who used to be an ordinary Finnish boy named Nikolas.

10. The Christmas Chronicles

  • USA, 2018
  • Fantasy, comedy, adventure
  • Duration: 104 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.1

A classic, good comedy for kids, and with Kurt Russell in a character that fits him perfectly. An eternally quarreling brother and sister make a video of Santa Claus but accidentally break his sleigh. And now the heroes must help the wizard to save the holiday and deliver presents to everyone.

9. Lost Christmas

  • UK, 2011
  • Drama
  • Duration: 88 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.1

A sad tale of the magic we do ourselves. Every act we do, like a spell, leads to trouble or to joy. The question is what we do.

Before Christmas and the New Year, it is customary to take stock and make plans. And this film is sure to help us work through our mistakes.

8. Home Alone

  • USA, 1990
  • Comedy
  • Duration: 103 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.6

The movie is old and not as dynamic as today’s movies, but it is still funny to kids. And in the end, everyone gets what they deserve: the bad ones get punished, and the good ones get a Christmas with their families.

7. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

  • USA, 2019
  • Comedy
  • Duration: 97 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.6

A silly and even crude, but very funny comedy from John Hughes and Chevy Chase. The story is about a model family man, Clark Griswold, who tries his best to have a perfect Christmas, but is constantly interrupted.

6. Love Actually

  • UK, USA, France, 2003
  • Drama, comedy
  • Duration: 129 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.6

A film that can be rewatched every Christmas. Several different love stories connected to each other will remind you what the most important feeling is both on holidays and weekdays.

5. Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas)

  • France, Germany, Great Britain, 2005
  • Drama, Military, Historical
  • Duration: 111 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.7

A film in which Christmas is celebrated in a war. Not the most obvious choice of setting for a holiday picture, but the plot was invented by life itself: the film is based on real events that happened in 1914. At the time, fighting on the Western Front unofficially ceased: the soldiers did not engage in hostilities and even celebrated Christmas together.

4. The Nightmare Before Christmas

  • USA, 1993
  • Fantasy, musical.
  • Duration: 76 minutes
  • IMDb: 8.0

An option for anyone who is already bored with Christmas paraphernalia and can’t find the “holiday feeling” despite the decorated Christmas trees and the mountain of presents. Christmas in Halloween costumes, black humor, great music – and now the good mood had appeared when you weren’t expecting it anymore.

3. The Shop Around the Corner

  • USA, 1940
  • Drama, melodrama, comedy
  • Duration: 99 minutes
  • IMDb: 8.1

A very old and very kind movie that proves that happiness can be right under our noses if we only notice it. On Christmas Eve, Alfred Králík, the manager of a gift store, who is always quarreling with the saleswoman, goes on a date with his pen pal.

2. Klaus

  • Spain, UK, 2019
  • Adventure, comedy, drama
  • Duration: 96 minutes
  • IMDb: 8.2

An incredibly touching cartoon that will both amuse and bring many to tears. It is about an arrogant young man who is sent to set up a postal service in a distant northern town. There he meets an old man, Klaus, who is not very friendly.

1. Arthur Christmas

  • UK, USA, 2011
  • Adventure, comedy, fantasy
  • Duration: 97 minutes
  • IMDb: 7.1

A rare opportunity to meet not only Santa Claus himself but also his sons. The youngest Arthur discovers that because of a mistake, the little girl Gwen will not receive a present – and decides to personally rectify the situation.
