Some Classics

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Christmas eve caters to more stories than any other eve of the year. Santa, riding his cart pulled by reindeer on the track made of clouds. Halloween town and the birth of Jesus in a cowshed. 'The Nightmare before Christmas' has it all and much more. A few fun stories and a few daunting ones, but all the while a worthy watch.

A Christmas Story

What better for Christmas than 'A Christmas Story'. This movie talks about the struggle of a nerdy, dorky boy during the holidays. He is rooting for his dream Christmas gift and is trying to get rid of a neighborhood bully. It's pretty much what most kids go through. This makes it one of the most loved Christmas movies ever.

The Shop Around the Corner

The story revolves around two workmates Krala Novak and Alfred Kralik who do not get along well and are always at loggerheads with each other. They are in love, not with each other, but with the mysterious people they write to. At Christmas they decide to meet their pen pals, but when they reach the venue, they see each other.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

The Charlie Brown movie is needed now more than ever. This Charles Schulz written classic has been popular for more than 50 years now. The story of a kid named Charlie - who after repeatedly being bullied holds his ground, has entranced the audience year after year.

It's a Wonderful Life

It's been 70 years since this movie first came out in American theaters. It celebrates life, and shows how every fellow human being has an important part to play in the grand design of life that seems to care little for the average humans. In the 70s, the movie entered the public domain, and since then has ruled the television on Christmas holidays.
This was a compilation of those films that have a plot dedicated to the celebrations, merriment, and fun. You'll love watching them. Sure thing! On a merry note, you know what to do this Christmas... stock up on the popcorn and cakes, and run your own movie marathon. You have no idea what you missed by not watching them yet!
