It’s that time of year when snuggling up with a cozy blanket, hot chocolate and your favorite holiday movie is upon us! Holiday movies have been around since the 1930’s and continue to be a large part of many families’ holiday traditions! There is something about holiday movies that makes this time of year just a little more magical! The classics remain a staple in this holiday cinema tradition all the way back to Babes in Toyland of 1934 and Scrooge of 1935. These classic Christmas tales have been warming the hearts of families for years.
Scrooge was the first on screen version of the play A Christmas Carol and this story has continued to be remade into movies and plays throughout the years. Other classics like It’s A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street have also remained as some top leaders in this nostalgic category. It has become a common theme to remake old movies; there is something to be said about the quality of a great film that enters itself into the category to be remade. The classics will live on forever because of this, new versions of the classics allow new generations to experience and appreciate the joy of the classic holiday movies and the joy they continue to bring.
So get comfy and get your place by the screen and enjoy whatever holiday movie your family deems a classic and continue the tradition of the holiday cinema magic!
