There are so many incredible Christmas movies, it's hard to pick a favorite.
Mine changes every year, to be perfectly honest. It all depends on my mood, the people I'm with, the weather, it's ever-changing.
These movies rake in big bucks over the holiday season. Millions and millions of dollars pour in from people checking out these blockbusters in theaters. But which ones are the highest-earning of all time?
Here's the top 16 highest-grossing Christmas movies to date. These gross earnings are based solely on revenue in the United States.
16. Jingle All The Way (1996), $60.59 million
Okay, I'll admit it. The only reason this list is 16 movies long is because I wanted this movie to make the cut.
15. The Best Man Holiday (2013), $70.59 million
Admittedly, I had never even heard of this movie before. But anything involving Taye Diggs I will support.
14. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), $71.31 million
A true holiday classic, during the height of Chevy Chase sanity.
13. Fred Claus (2007), $72 million
Did you know there's another Claus brother? Well there is, and he's played by Vince Vaughan, of course.
12. Christmas with the Kranks (2004), $73.78 million
Tim Allen makes his triumphant return to Christmas movies in which he doesn't play Santa Claus(e). Plus Jamie Lee Curtis is a treasure.
11. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), $75.08 million
Halloween movie? Christmas movie? All of the above.
10. The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006), $84.5 million
Martin Short joins the already amazing cast in this franchise. Because we needed to love Martin Short more.
9. Four Christmases (2008), $120.15 million
Honestly, I'm shocked to see Vince Vaughan in the top 16 twice. But Reese Witherspoon makes it all okay.
8. A Christmas Carol (2009), $137.86 million
To this day I still hold that this movie was live action, not animated. IT LOOKS SO REAL!
7. The Santa Clause 2 (2002), $139.24 million
An evil Scott Calvin? AN EVIL SANTA CLAUS(E)? Yes.
6. The Santa Clause (1994), $144.83 million
5. Elf (2003), $173.40 million
Thank you, Will Ferrell, for showing how to properly eat spaghetti for breakfast.
4. Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (1992), $173.59 million
It was every kid's dream to sit in a limo and eat a large cheese pizza. It's STILL my dream, if we're being honest.
3. The Polar Express (2004), $183.37 million
This train just seemed like the best possible experience. Also I could listen to Tom Hanks read the phone book.
2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), $260.04 million
The older I get, the more I realize I am basically The Grinch. I mean I love Christmas, but other than that we are one in the same.
1. Home Alone (1990), $285.76 million
To the shock of no one.
