Have a Holly Jolly Christmas…And Watch a Few Movies While You’re At It

Here at TTC, we often talk about Christmas music and gifts around the holidays. This year, I would like to provide a list of films that I believe are in some form redemptive and that are worth checking out over the holiday season. If you feel I have missed a very important film, tell me about it in the comments section. Here is my list of 20 Christmas movies/shows/specials to check out in order of release date (with a few embedded gems for fun).
