Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s officially time for all things Christmas! I’m also going to let you in on a little secret — the Hawkins family has been in Christmas mode since November 1st!

Last night, we debuted our matching family pajamas and watched our first Christmas movie of the season as a family. We kicked it off with Home Alone, and from now until the big day, I’ll have one of our TVs tuned to the Hallmark channel. Before bed, Jordan and I started talking about our favorite Christmas movies, and I started thinking about all the other Christmas movies I like that didn’t quite make the cut. Usually, I’d try to be strategic and make a list of all the movies I want to squeeze in during my limited time over the holidays.

But it’s 2020 right?! Most of us are spending a lot more time at home working, homeschooling, and watching TV. I mean we literally have a TV in our home office and I’ve had a trash TV, Blippi, and CNN mashup on in the background for months — and I’m not even ashamed ’cause that’s what kind of year it’s been. Can I get an AMEN?!

I feel equally not ashamed about my plan to overdose on Christmas cheer, ’cause let’s keep it all the way real…we could all use some extra cheer.

So, get your remote and your 17 streaming services ready (and I know you have ALL OF THEM) — whether you want to watch a holiday classic with your family, or you’re looking for some Christmas movies to turn on in the background while you’re muted on Zoom, here’s a list of 79 Christmas movies to watch this year.
