The original 1964 Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966), A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965), and Frosty the Snowman (1969) are the most popular and well-known of my vintage childhood favorites and are usually shown each year on the major networks at least once or twice.
You also cannot forget the Muppets when it comes to Christmas movies! My favorite Muppet holiday movies are the Muppet Family Christmas and the Muppet Christmas Carol, both equally hilarious and heartwarming in true muppet fashion!
The Year Without a Santa Claus, Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too!, and It's Christmastime Again Charlie Brown are a few more of my lesser known favorites.
What are your favorite holiday movies from childhood? Any that we forgot to mention? We hope this list helped bring back some good Christmas memories, and also helps add a few more this holiday season! Stay tuned for more holiday favorites next week!
