21 Funny Christmas Movies to Get You In the Holiday Spirit

Christmastime is about family. It's about giving back, baking cookies, sparkling lights, and oh! Don't forget the eggnog! Okay, so the holiday season involves a lot of joyous things. But perhaps our favorite tradition is parking our butts on the couch and watching all our favorite funny Christmas movies.

1. Love Actually (2003)

The star-studded cast in Love Actually includes Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Hugh Grant, and Emma Thompson, among others. Like, a lot of others. There are eight love stories explored throughout the five weeks before Christmas.

2. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)

What are the odds of a single child getting abandoned in two different locations on Christmas day? If you're like Macaulay Culkin, they're astronomical. And you should also buy a lottery ticket.

3. A Madea Christmas (2013)

We all know and love Tyler Perry's beloved character Madea. In this comedy film, she heads to Bucktussle, Alabama to spend time with her family. Featuring Kathy Najimy (of Hocus Pocus fame), it's really everything you could ask for in a feel-good holiday movie. BYO tinsel.

4. Christmas with the Kranks (2004)

Father Christmas, aka Tim Allen, stars in this family romp alongside the Scream Queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. Based on the John Grisham novel, "Skipping Christmas," the film focuses on a family who decides to skip the holiday for one year since their daughter is away. But then...she returns.

5. The Night Before (2015)

Think of this as a Christmas version of The Hangover. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mindy Kaling, and Seth Rogen star in this funny film about a Christmas Eve tradition between childhood best friends.
