Deck the Halls

Are you obsessed with having the best Christmas lights in town? Well, in this movie, Danny DeVito tries to cover his house in so many decorations that it'll be seen from space. However, he ends up having trouble with his neighbor, played by Matthew Broderick. This is one of the most hilarious holiday movies to watch with the family, so don't skip it.



If you haven't seen this movie yet, you need to rush to do so. It stars Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel. Need I say more?


Christmas with the Kranks

Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis play a married couple who decide to take a cruise on Christmas and skip celebrating the holiday. Their trip is meant to relax them, but their neighbors make their lives miserable by judging them over their decision.


The Santa Clause

Here's another Christmas movie with Tim Allen. After his character accidentally kills Santa on Christmas Eve, he is forced to become the new Santa.


Eight Crazy Nights

This movie is all about Hanukkah. It's an animated movie where Adam Sandler plays the voice of almost every character. If you're a fan of him, you'll be a fan of this film.



Are you a Bill Murray fan? If you are, you need to watch this movie about him getting haunted by three different spirits. As the title suggests, it has several references to Dickens' A Christmas Carol.


Jingle All the Way

All Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to do is buy a certain toy for his son for Christmas. Of course, we all know how difficult that simple task can be around the holidays.


The Muppet Christmas Carol

You should already know how clever Muppet movies are, so don't debate whether you should see this film. It's great for adults and children, so it's perfect for watching with the whole family.


National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Chevy Chase has always been hysterical, which is why he's the star of so many comedies. If this one won't make you laugh, then nothing will.


A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

If you have young kids around, you'll want to skip this one. It has some pretty raunchy scenes, but it also has Neil Patrick Harris singing and dancing, so you don't want to miss out on the fun.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas

We've all seen the original, cartoon version of the Grinch's life story, but this one is a live action comedy with Jim Carrey. Even though the characters look ridiculous, it's easy to fall in love with this film. It shows you a whole new side of the Grinch.

It's the happiest time of the year, so make sure that you have holiday cheer. Blast your seasonal tunes, put up decorations, and watch a handful of movies on this list. What's your favorite funny holiday movie?
