’Tis the season for a marathon of funny Christmas movies. With so many people canceling their holiday plans this year, merry Christmas cheer is going to be more important to conjure up this holiday season than ever before.
Seriously, this might not be the year for It’s a Wonderful Life. Instead, pop on comedy Christmas movies that have become classics, such as Elf or How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Those holiday films are perfect for your household family gathering (emphasis on household). Or if there are no kiddos running around the tree, you could give a Christmas comedy like The Night Before, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, Love Actually, or Eight Crazy Nights a chance. (Speaking of…Hollywood, there aren’t enough Hanukkah movies!)
Here, Glamour has pulled together a list of 40 funny Christmas movies that should last you all through December—including some unexpected additions. Don’t let anyone tell you Mean Girls is not a holiday movie.
It’s been a stressful year, but at least you can count on Hollywood to come through with the holiday cheer. After all, what’s more relaxing than watching an overworked woman fall in love with a Christmas tree farmer? So decompress with All the Jingle Ladies, our guide to the best holiday movies.
