    😂😂😂😂 Jingle All the Way is amazing for me because Arnold always reminded me of my dad. Super nostalgic (along with Sinbad for goodness sakes!) so it would most definitely be in my top 5. Along with the 90's Miracle on 34th Street, 90's animated Anastasia (debatable of course), Nightmare Before Christmas (booooo, no one thinks of Edward Scissorhands as a Xmas movie darn it!!! & 90's Batman holds some cold ass nostalgia but I never equated it with Christmas 😒... & Die Hard?? For my generation at least, Hell No! 😂), the claymation films: Little Drummer Boy, Frosty, Rudolph, Jack Frost, etc. Granted my sister & I HATED THEM Lol but my dad didn't get it because that's what HE grew up with. Of course the Muppets Christmas Carol (along with every other version released on cable during that time lol). *Omg yes! Love Actually!!! Okay maybe this is turning into a guy vs girl Christmas preference lol **Oh of course Home Alone! Although again, me & my sis hated that movie 🙄

    So sad that none of the claymation/stop motion Christmas films were in the top five or honorable mentions. I think they make up my entire list! I love Santa Clause is coming to town, Rudolph, Rudolph’s Shiny New Year, the Year without Santa Clause, ugh! The list may go on!

    I don't know if it's my age (born mid 90s), my nationality (Australian), or just my family - or perhaps a combination of any/all - but I just haven't seen many Christmas movies and have never understood the intense hype and nostalgia that people have for them... And I don't know anyone my age who feels the hype and nostalgia either. Maybe I need to watch the ones on this list and see how I feel... But I'm probably too late to be able to attach nostalgia to them.
