The Year Without a Santa Claus & 10 Can’t Miss Classic Christmas Movies

The Year Without a Santa Claus and ten additional can’t miss Christmas movies to put you in the holiday spirit.  Pour the hot chocolate and light a toasty fire, because it’s almost that time of year when we love to curl up in front of the TV and lose ourselves in the nostalgia of our favorite classic Christmas movies.

My favorite is The Year Without a Santa Claus but all these flicks are good no matter when you watch them, but they’re especially magical during the holidays. For a while I couldn’t track down The Year Without a Santa Claus and they don’t play it much on TV so when it was released on DVD I grabbed it.   If all your favorites are still on VHS, it’s time to upgrade and pick up some DVDs or Blu-Rays or download them from Amazon Instant Video.  That way you don’t have to rely on network programming to get your fill of these amazing classic Christmas movies.
