The Ultimate Christmas Movie Checklist

The ultimate binge-watch list of Christmas Movies


Clear your calendar. Here’s the ultimate Christmas movie checklist of all time!    

The season of shamelessly indulging in every holiday movie ever made has officially begun, and we couldn’t be more keen! Whether you’re into cheesy made-for-TV movies, old classics or huge blockbusters, there’s nothing quite like grabbing some snacks, dimming the lights and binging on your favourite Christmas movie to bring on the holiday vibe.

To ensure you cram as many must-see films into your viewing schedule as possible, we’ve analysed Google data to create the only Christmas movie checklist you need to follow this December!

Binge-Worthy Christmas Movies

Home Alone, Die Hard, or Love Actually!? To uncover the top films to watch on repeat every year, we analysed the most Googled Christmas movies across more than 20 different countries. Films that appear most frequently in the top 10 in each country have been used to create our final list.

Plus, you could potentially binge them in one weekend with our handy schedule!

Battle of the Christmas Movies: 90s vs Noughties Classics

The 90s and 2000s are home to some of the absolute best in the holiday movie genre. The 90s brought us classics like Home Alone, Gremlins and The Nightmare Before Christmas and the 2000s gave us Love Actually, Elf and The Grinch!

It’s virtually impossible to choose between the 90s movies everyone still loves and fast risers from the 2000s (and even last year!), so we looked at Google data to find out which decade most of our favourite movies come from.

Turns out we love to mix it up! 60% of the list is made up of noughties films like Serendipity, with the other 40% made up of 90s classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Die Hard.

Yes, Die Hard is a Christmas Movie!

‘Is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?’ UK film-lovers still ask the question almost 3,000 times a month, according to Google search data.

In one YouGov survey, 52% of Brits were adamant that Die Hard is not a Christmas movie, but considering that it consistently ranks in the top 10 most searched Christmas movies across 20 countries, we beg to differ. Out of all the Christmas movies analysed in the UK, this 90s action gem ranks in 9th place as one of the most in-demand festive films to watch this time of year, followed by Edward Scissorhands.
