It is already December so we are wasting no time in whipping out the Christmas movies. Each December we have a list of all of our favorites that we never want to miss. It’s full of newcomers as well as classics and really helps put us in the Christmas spirit. We’re going to have to watch one a day to make it through them all, but we have happily accepted the challenge!

How We Watch Christmas Movies

We love to watch movies on our Cinemood projector in any part of the house. Using it in the living room next to the tree makes the Christmas movie experience for our kids even more magical and unique.

I’ve tried a several projectors before and Cinemood certainly takes the cake when it comes to streaming movies (which is our method of choice). I hate dealing with chords and connections, and one of the best features about the Cinemood is it comes pre-loaded with all of your favorite streaming services – you simply have to sign into your accounts. Plus, since it holds a charge for several hours, it’s literally the most portable projector…. EVER!

You can get $100 off the Cinemood with the code HOMEGROWNTRADITIONS. It’s worth noting that there’s a newer model coming out next year called Cinemood TV. The colors are brighter and the sound is better, but it is more of an investment. I’ll do a full comparison when I get my hands on the new one, but if you are looking for a budget-friendly option, you still can’t go wrong with the original. It’s been SO MUCH FUN!

What Christmas Movies We Watch

I’ve gathered up all of the family-friendly Christmas movies that are currently available through a streaming service (Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime). And listed them below with links so you don’t have to bounce back and forth between providers trying to find who has it.

All of these are free to watch from the services with the exception of Elf and A Christmas Story. But they are some of our all-time favorite Christmas movies, so I couldn’t leave them out.

Oh, and naturally I checked the list… and checked it twice. But do me a favor and let me know if I missed one of your favorites, ok? We might have to watch more than one Christmas movie a day, but I think we could take one for the team…
