“This year, Christmas with the Whitfield’s promises to be one they will never forget. All the siblings have come home for the first time in years and they’ve brought plenty of baggage with them. As the Christmas tree is trimmed and the lights are hung, secrets are revealed and family bonds are tested. As their lives converge, they join together and help each other discover the true meaning of family.”

2. Snowglobe (2007)


“A woman who always longed for the perfect Christmas receives a magical snow globe that transports her to a land where every day is the twenty fifth of December in this family-oriented fantasy starring Christina Milian and Lorraine Bracco. When it comes to the holidays, Angela (Milian) would rather be just about anywhere other than home. Upon shaking an antique snow globe that she received as a gift, however, this embittered cynic is whisked away to a magical kingdom where Christmas never ends, and where she will have to choose between the man of her dreams and a love she could have never imagined.”

Two women who have never met and live 6000 miles apart, find themselves in the exact same place. They meet online at a home exchange website and impulsively switch homes for the holiday. Iris moves into Amanda’s L.A. house in sunny California as Amanda arrives in the snow covered English countryside.

“Jack Frost is the tale of a man who’s trying to be a father, a husband, a breadwinner, and he’s trying to do what he loves to do. Ultimately he realizes that if you don’t pay attention to the people dearest in your life — your family — you could lose it all. Jack, an often-traveling blues musician, has spent little time with his son- then dies in a car accident and then realizes his mortal life mistake of not being there for his son. Then Jack “came to life one day” as a snowman to repair his lost time.”

7. Four Christmases (2008)

Four_Christmases-Movie_Poster“When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation–and unable to escape–they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families’ choices are not so crazy after all.”

  1. I’ve only seen The Grinch on this list, but I love it. It’s one of my favorites too. I saw Jack Frost a long time ago, but I don’t really remember much about it. They did a horror movie called Jack Frost too, and it was hysterical. I actually remember that one more. lol

        1. Oh gosh I misread your post…i thought you meant like they were doing both the Grinch and HP at one show but you didn’t want to go because they were including HP. But I get what you meant now that you chose HP over the Grinch 😂😂😂

    1. Aw, Snow Globe is so cute. It plays on ABC family every year! If you have that channel, you should watch it this year. 🙂
      Ultimate Christmas Present used to play on Disney all the time, I’m surprised you haven’t seen it!

      1. I don’t have it unfortunately! I have the basic package with Comcast that includes like no good channels 😂
        And gotcha! I didn’t have Disney until like 2005 or so. So I missed out on a lot of the older shows and movies unless they played a lot on the channel lol. I’ll have to see if I can find it!
        And ohh no I think that’s great 😂
