One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to watch as many Christmas movies as humanly possible.

I love Christmas movies, and I'm pretty sure I've seen just about every Christmas movie out there. Everything from Christmas Vacation to A Christmas Story and even Polar Express which stars the one and only Tom Hanks.

I would like to give you my list of the top 5 best Christmas movies:

1. Christmas Vacation: This movie makes me laugh so hard every holiday season when I sit down to watch it. Chevy Chase makes the entire movie very funny along with his idiot cousin Eddie.

2. A Christmas Story: This movie captures the spirit of being a kid during the holidays better than any film to date.

3. A Charlie Brown Christmas: Love this one too. Charlie Brown finds himself feeling the holiday blues and questioning the true meaning of everyone's favorite day of the year.

4. It's a Wonderful Life: This 1946 fantasy drama is the father of all Christmas movies, and one of the bonafide classics of Hollywood's Golden age.

5. Home Alone: Macauley Culkin is charming as heck, and his bone crunching booby traps makes it one of the funniest movies to watch every holiday season.
