7 Alexis-Approved Christmas Movies

by - December 18, 2017

Christmas is seven days away, and chances are your little ones spending a lot of time in front of the TV while you attempt to get your holiday to-do list accomplished. We've been watching a lot of Disney Junior Christmas specials, but it's nice to have a few movies to break up the pattern. Below is a list of Alexis-approved Christmas movies to get you through the big day.

1. Mickey's Once & Twice Upon a Christmas
Technically, this is two movies but for Alexis they're interchangeable. Each features three short stories starring your favorite Mickey Mouse characters. My personal favorite is Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas because it's the old-style animation, but to Alexis Mickey Mouse is Mickey Mouse.

2. Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed In at the House of Mouse
This series of shorts stands on its own and contains my favorite cartoon version of A Christmas Carol. This difference between Magical Christmas and Once/Twice is that all of the stories are being shown to get Donald in the Christmas spirit.

3. A Charlie Brown Christmas
How could this Christmas classic not be on the list? Not only does it teach a great lesson, but there's lots of singing to keep your toddler's attention.

4. Frosty the Snowman
Another Christmas classic the holidays wouldn't be complete without watching at least once. What kid doesn't love a talking snowman?

5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
As you can tell by the picture, I'm talking about the original made-for-tv movie. Although there's nothing wrong with the live-action version, the cartoon version is more Alexis's speed. It's also a shorter movie so younger kids are more likely not to get distracted halfway through.

6. Santa Buddies
If your kid is anything like Alexis, they love anything with animals in it. All the Buddies' movies have been a hit with her, although they are a little bit longer than most things we watch.

7. Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year
Alexis has recently gotten into Winnie the Pooh so I had to include one of those holiday movies. You truly can't go wrong with any of them, but I like this one because it combines Christmas and New Year's.
