There’s nothing like enjoying your favorite holiday movie while the snow is falling and the fireplace is crackling. But it’s time to decide -- which movie is the best?
With the holiday season upon us, we decided to have a little fun: We’ve launched a Christmas Movie Bracket, with five rounds of voting, to decide the best of the best.
We’ve selected 32 movies -- and we’re sure not everyone’s favorite is on the list -- but we hope we’ve covered most of the top picks. We’re including movies that are debated as Christmas movies, like “Die Hard,” “Lethal Weapon,” and “Trading Places,” because they are indeed Christmas movies.
Insider only: Best Christmas movie? Local 4 team picks their favorites
We’re also including some classic animated shorts, like Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman and Charlie Brown. They’re just too iconic to leave out, even though they aren’t full length films.
We’re now down to 8 as we move into Round 3! The TV movies continue to roll, all three moving into the third round. For the second straight round, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” had the most overall votes -- which now takes on No. 1 seed “A Christmas Story” in Round 3. “Frosty” goes up against Home Alone -- we’ll see if this Cinderella story keeps winning. “Miracle on 34th Street” is out after losing to Charlie Brown. (Round 4 starts Tuesday!)
🎁 Prizes: Just by voting, you’ll be entered to win a $100 Jax Kar Wash gift card (we’re giving away three each round), and our grand $500 cash prize from DraftKings—the Official Daily Fantasy Partner of the NFL.
