I now have two little boys and am already exposing them to some of my favorite children’s Christmas movies. Thanks to YouTube, Apple TV, and ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas my mind is brought back to many of these instant favorites from my childhood. Some of these are old but still good and others are more contemporary (and perhaps enjoyable for young children today!) Some of these bring back fond memories for me and others I hope to build new memories for my children.
Either, way, here is my list. Please comment to add yours to the list!
