The Five Best Holiday Movies of All Time, in One Video Countdown 

In this week-long lull between Christmas and New Year’s, there are few better ways to avoid work than by deciding to watch a holiday movie. Sadly, that decision only brings more work: the exhausting, often doomed process of selecting what, exactly, to see.

Enter CineFix’s latest video countdown, which handily ranks the five best holiday movies of all time—films that hit the spot on each and every viewing, their sweetness and humor and heft perfectly proportioned. And they’re not just old classics, either: The makers realize that even zany, low-budget flicks like The Hebrew Hammer can hit you right in the holiday feels.
