Any “The Office” Christmas Episode
This one isn’t a movie but The Office Christmas episodes are the highlight of every season. Watch a marathon of all seven (there’s not one for season 1 or 4) in lieu of a holiday movie.
The original Home Alone is Christmas classic. Macaulay Culkin plays a little boy who is accidentally left behind when his family flies to Paris for Christmas. He successfully sets numerous booby traps to deter burglars Harry and Marv from robbing the house. The ending is a happy one and the family is reunited. The comedic and action-filled scenes are super entertaining to watch as Culkin’s character battles the bad guys.
