Emma Thompson also stars in "Last Christmas," from director Paul Feig. Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Working as an elf in a year round Christmas store is not good for the wannabe singer. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.

Meet Me in St. Louis

Vincente Minnelli's "Meet Me in St. Louis" features Judy Garland's iconic performance of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," which is especially resonant for 2020 - someday, soon, we all will be together. The film was adapted into a Broadway musical in 1989. Young love and childish fears highlight a year in the life of a turn-of-the-century family, also featuring Margaret O'Brien.

Holiday Affair

In "Holiday Affair," a young widow is torn between a boring attorney and a romantic ne'er-do-well. The film is described as a minor holiday classic, appearing on TCM during the Christmas season most years.

The Shop Around the Corner

If you've seen "She Loves Me," you'll love where it originated. Two employees at a gift shop (played by Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan) can barely stand each other, without realizing that they are falling in love through the post as each other's anonymous pen pal. The film has spawned numerous adaptations, including the aforementioned musical, which was recently revived starring Laura Benanti and Zachary Levi.

Unaccompanied Minors

For the rest of our lives, we will remember the song from the trailer for "Unaccompanied Minors." In the film, a group of unaccompanied minors bond while snowed in at the midwestern Hoover International Airport during the holiday season and ultimately create a makeshift holiday themselves.

Home Alone 4

Head to HBO Max for the rest of your "Home Alone" fix, including "The Holiday Heist!" In the film, Kevin McCallister returns to foil the plans of an old nemesis and his cronies.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

Kal Penn and John Cho reprise the roles they made famous escaping from Guantanamo Bay and going to White Castle. Six years after their Guantanamo Bay adventure, stoner buds Harold Lee and Kumar Patel cause a holiday fracas by inadvertently burning down Harold's father-in-law's prize Christmas tree.

The Family Stone

Broadway favorite Sarah Jessica Parker stars alongside Claire Danes, Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Dermot Mulroney, Craig T. Nelson, and Luke Wilson in "The Family Stone." An uptight, conservative businesswoman accompanies her boyfriend to his eccentric and outgoing family's annual Christmas celebration and finds that she's a fish out of water in their free-spirited way of life.

Die Hard

Another movie that's controversially been dubbed a holiday flick. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, this action-packed thriller (starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman) is worth the watch. In the film, an NYPD officer tries to save his wife and several others taken hostage by German terrorists during a Christmas party at the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.

All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into NO MAN'S LAND singing "Stille Nacht." Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

The MeshugaNutcracker!

Judah Maccabee's triumphant saga and accounts of perseverance during the Holocaust as well as the celebration of the first Chanukah in the new state of Israel emerge with a genuine sense of wonder as the Chelmniks tell eight stories that pay tribute to the holiday. Add in dancing dreidels, singing sufganiot, and surprise guest stars and you have the perfect recipe for a holiday gathering. Some might call it crazy... we call it The MeshugaNutcracker!


Nuncrackers is the first "TV Special" taped by the sisters in their convent basement studio for Cable Access. It stars the nuns you love plus Father Virgil and some of Mt. Saint Helen's most talented students. Nuncrackers will make you laugh and maybe tug at your heartstrings. It's the perfect way to ensure your holiday season is merry and bright.
