It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s also the perfect time to watch holiday films with your family and friends. There are the usual holiday classics like How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Home Alone, but we wanted to gift you with a special ‘What To Watch’ list featuring classic Black holiday movies to binge this season.
There are countless movies that have become holiday staples over the years. When you think of Christmas time, you may watch a rebellious Macaulay Culkin, who portrayed a bratty 8-year-old who acted out before his family’s big winter trip to Paris. The 1990’s Home Alone franchise is always a reminder that cozy weather and hot cocoa are underway.
Some may choose the 2000’s family and fantasy film, How the Grinch Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey. In the live-action adaptation of the beloved children’s tale by Dr. Seuss, the reclusive green Grinch (Carrey) decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville.
Still, it’s these classic Black holiday films that have stolen the hearts of many around the world. Notable holiday films like The Preacher’s Wife, starring Denzel Washington and the late, great Whitney Houston and This Christmas, starring Idris Elba, Loretta Devine, Regina King and more, are undoubtedly Christmas classics.
Every movie you binge throughout the holiday break does not have to be a Christmas film, so we have included some cult classics that just give you the feels and warm, fuzzy familial feeling inside. Rest assured, there is something for everyone!
