So many Christmas movies, specials and songs! It can be difficult to sift through the Christmas content available to find the winners. Old school Christmas classics are the best and bring back or make the memories.
These are my four favorite classic Christmas movies that I look forward to viewing every year. The classics are available on DVD or can be streamed on Amazon Prime.
Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer
Rudolph and Clarice are not a pair without Burl Ives! The classic 1964 Rudolph with Animagic animation and the memorable holiday songs of "A Holly Jolly Christmas" "We're A Couple Of Misfits" and "Silver and Gold".
Fun fact: Rudolph was honored with a postage stamp in 2014 to mark the 50th Anniversary.
The Little Drummer Boy
Another stop motion classic with a very thoughtful message which resonates today. While the animation is typical of its' era and cannot compare to the animation of today; the ending is unforgettable and thought provoking.
"Do You Hear What I Hear" along with "The Little Drummer Boy" songs remain Christmas classics.
Fun fact: Based on original song title Carol Of the Drum sang by the Trapp Family Singers (Sound Of Music)
Frosty The Snowman
Jimmy Durante provided the classic narration for the original Frosty in 1969. Frosty had four sequels through the years, but who can compete with Durante!
Fun Fact: Frosty the Snowman has made the music charts over six times since 1966 with a variety of artists including Jimmy Durante, Perry Como, Nat King Cole.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
Who does not love the Grinch! and Dr. Seuss! The 1966 animated film is the best! Boris Karloff is the narrator not to be forgotten as the Grinch navigates Christmas.
Fun Fact: The Grinch Who Stole Christmas has been adapted over five times since the original.
