2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Directed by Ron Howard and inspired by the 1957 Dr. Seuss book of the same name, this Oscar-winning Jim Carrey holiday film is sure to remind you of the true spirit of Christmas!

Years after the Grinch—a green creature who hates Christmas—flees to Mount Crumpit to escape whe Whos who bullied him, he’s lured back to the town he despises by little Cindy Lou Who. Having run into the grumpy Grinch at the post office, she wanted him to experience the joy of the season—so she nominated him as the town’s Cheermeister!

However, when his return ends in his humiliation, he plots his revenge—and comes up with a comical plan to steal Christmas from the Whos of Whoville.

This classic tale made more than $345 million when it was released worldwide over 20 years ago, and it held the record for the highest opening weekend for a Christmas-themed film for over 18 years—only to be surpassed by the release of the 2018 version of The Grinch.

3. The Polar Express

Credited by the Guinness World Records as being the first all-digital capture film, The Polar Express follows a young boy who begins to doubt the existence of Santa Claus on a journey of self-discovery aboard the Polar Express, a steam engine train that picks him up on Christmas Eve.

On the train he meets two other young children and together they ride to the North Pole, embarking on a magical adventure that will help them discover what it means to truly believe.

Starring Tom Hanks, Nona Gaye and Peter Scolari, The Polar Express grossed more than $314 million worldwide and has inspired multiple real-life Polar Express train rides for children everywhere.

4. A Christmas Carol (2009)

Lovingly naming him Everest, Yi eventually gains his trust and goes on a mission to reunite him with his family before his captors can find him and return him to the research facility he originally escaped from.
