Christmas is a very interesting time of year for an adult. No matter what do you or how you best try to recreate the holiday, it just feels like it can never live up the way your mind remembers it from your childhood. The fuzz of nostalgia can cast a beautiful glow on anything in hindsight, but there are things we can do to get ourselves back to those moments, like watching Christmas movies. The right ones can flash us right back to when we were wearing warm pyjamas and shaking the boxes underneath the tree, trying to figure out what might be inside.
The child may grow, but it always manages to live on inside of us, and never does it come out as much as it does around Christmas. Christmas movies almost act like a poke-ball in the sense that they help to summon the child in us once we are adults. (Wow, that was an awful analogy. I am leaving it in though because the nerd kid that lives inside of me appreciates it.)
While we may grow up and grow out of the targeted demographic for Christmas movies, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t still enjoyable to watch as adults. In fact, I’m going to prove it to you.
Here are 6 children’s Christmas movies that you can still enjoy as an adult.
