Every year there is a great debate: What is the best Christmas movie ever? No matter what film gets your vote, we can all agree a classic Christmas story or movie can create an evening of holiday fun in the weeks leading up to Christmas or on Christmas night after a jam packed day.
We decided to vote anyway. The iMOM team weighed in on what we think is the best Christmas movie based on our own childhood memories and the ones that are must-watch for our kids. So here they are organized by streaming service.
