Everyone loves a good traditional Christmas movie. One you watched as a kid or one your parents watched. From Miracle on 34th Street to Will Ferrell’s Elf, who doesn’t love movies that get them in the holiday spirit?

Although these movies are a for sure way to get in the Christmas spirit, there are also others who do so in different ways — without the holly jolly, Christmas tree decorating, Santa Claus, and Elf charade. They get you in the holiday spirit with the snowy mountains, the soundtrack, the cinematography, the color palette/tone, or the loveable characters and the cozy family vibes.
