10 Funny Holiday Movies

This post contains affiliate links.

1 – Elf – Will Farrell dressed as an elf for over an hour is funny in and of its self. “Buddy the Elf. What’s your favorite color?”

2 – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – This is the best of the Griswold movies if you ask me. Someday I hope we can have a family Christmas just like it!

3 – A Christmas Story – the classic of classics with lots of great lines. The triple dog dare makes my tongue hurt in sympathy.

4 – A Muppets Christmas Carol – A rare time to see Muppets, Sesame Street and Fraggles in one film. Hilarious antics ensue.

5 – The Santa Clause – Tim Allen is a great fit for this role. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I do.

6 – Scrooged – A twist on the Dickens classic. I think this one is underrated.

7 – Home Alone – Definitely funny for the kids. Lots of slapstick.

8 – Ernest Saves Christmas – It’s a silly classic from my childhood even if Ernest can be somewhat annoying at times.

9 – Planes, Train, and Automobiles – Okay technically it’s a Thanksgiving movie, but it’s a classic, it’s hilarious and it’s full of heart too.

10 – Bad Santa – Not family friendly but it makes me laugh every time. The wooden pickle and modified Advent Calendar crack me up every time.

Which are your favorites? Any I missed?
