Sure, it’s always fun to see the newest holiday flick on the big screen, but on a cold night, nothing beats curling up on the couch with your kids to watch the real Christmas movies you grew up with. When your gang feels like staying in, introduce your little ones to these favorites, hand-picked by the folks at the nonprofit Common Sense Media.
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
There’s no better way to teach kids the meaning of Christmas spirit than by watching the original 1966 cartoon adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s beloved book.
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Families looking to bring a little more meaning–and a little less commercialism–back into Christmas will delight in Charlie Brown’s attempt to direct the holiday pageant. Bonus: The music is pure, vintage holiday.
A Muppet Family Christmas
Join Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the Muppets as they entertain themselves with song and dance which stuck in Fozzie’s farmhouse during a Christmas Eve blizzard.
