Home Alone (1990)
Home alone is a classic Christmas film and has been for 30 years. Chances are you’ve heard of this one; in case you haven’t, the whole premise of the film is perhaps a little funnier than it’s festive.

The booby traps set up by Kevin leave you cringing and laughing. Home Alone is a light-hearted and crowd-pleasing Christmas film for all ages.
Christmas Vacation (1989)
We will all go overboard for at least one Christmas in our lifetime; Clark Griswold’s no exception. After failed perfect Christmas celebrations, he pulls out all the stops, invites the in-laws, and decks out the house in an expanse of lights. However, things don’t go too well for Clark as a series of unfortunate events make for a difficult time (hilarious for the viewer, of course). Another brilliant film if you’re looking to have a laugh with your date and also cringe behind the popcorn bowl. With some mild spicy humor, it’s a great film to casually set the tone.
The Knight Before Christmas (2019)
Combining whimsical and festive, we have The Knight Before Christmas. When Sir Cole has a bad experience with a sorceress, he is sent to the present-day and plunged into a world he has no idea about.
