Greetings everyone it's Marrok and today I'm taking part in the 12 Day's of Christmas hosted by Firefly. Today My post will be about 10 Christmas movies that are great fun for the whole family. Now the 10 movies will be divided into two groups. Group one will be live action movies while group two will deal with animated movies. So let's get into this Christmas movie list!
First up is The Christmas Wish:
And the synopsis is as followed
"MARTHA EVANS has been abandoned by her ne'er-do-well husband, who took all their cash and left her homeless and virtually destitute with her two daughters and stepson. Martha leaves town in hopes of finding a job and a place to stay, she finally finds a job at a sleepy rural diner, formerly famous for its home-made root beer. But with her car broken down and the bills piling up, it looks like it's going to be a bleak Christmas for the Evans family. However, there are warm hearts working behind the scenes that ultimately make this the happiest holiday of Martha's life -- a real answer to her prayers..."
The reason this movie is at the top of the list is because it doesn't focus on Santa Claus or a romance (thoughs things are in the movie but they are more of a side thing and not part of the main story). No, it focuses on a mother who is trying her headrest to provide for her kids and give them at least a home to sleep in for Christmas. Overall a nice movie and something I think the whole family can enjoy!
Next up we have Christmas with Holly:
As the village of Berk prepares for its winter holiday, the resident dragons all inexplicably fly away. What made the dragons leave is still a mystery but what is certain is that they took the fun of Snoggletog with them. Can the gang pull the Vikings together and have a Marry Snoggletog or will the holiday be ruined?
This takes our number six spot because it's a Dragons Christmas special! plus we get to see Berk all ready for the Viking holiday Snoggletog. So grab a blanket, grab a cup of Yak-nog, and get ready for 22 minutes of wintery dragon fun
At spot number seven we have Prep & Landing and Prep & Landing: naughty vs. nice
Prep and Landing follows the adventures of Wayne and Lenny, the elf's that 'prep' for Santa's visit to the good little boys and girls. But when Wayne doesn't get the promotion he wanted, he no longer cares about 'prepping' anything. Will Wayne's lack of Christmas spirit doom one child's Christmas or will he be able to pull it together for the sake of the child?
Prep and Landing: Naughty vs. Nice follows Wayne and Lenny's adventure as they try to retrieve a secret elf device from the house of a naughty child. Things get hair when Wayne's brother Noel, who is a coal elf, joins the party.
Yes, I am aware this is another movie/cartoon about Santa. But it is a rather nice cartoon with good themes like to think of others more than yourself, and to enjoy your family. Oh, plus these elf's go all "black opt" on these 'prep' missions. It's rather hysterical
At number eight we have Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas
A Christmas themed three-part anthology-style video. The first part, "Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas", is essentially a story where Huey, Dewey, and Louie reliving Christmas. Next is "A Very Goofy Christmas", in which Goofy tries to overcome his son's skepticism about Santa Claus. Finally, "Mickey & Minnie's Gift Of The Magi" recreate the classic tale of ironic Christmas selflessness.
Another nice Christmas movie, sure some have to do with believing in Santa. But the overall themes of each story are rather nice and even though they are retelling they have that Disney freshness to them.
Our ninth stop goes to Mickey's Christmas Carol
The classic Disney animated characters play the roles in this animated retelling of the Charles Dickens masterpiece "A Christmas Carol"
