Must List

7 movie Santas we totally adore

It’s no secret that in each classic Christmas movie, there’s a different Santa Claus and North Pole. We love that there are so many different representations of Santa and how he runs his shop. From huge factories to small cottages, one thing remains the same: Santa is always wearing his red outfit complete with a pearly white beard. Wel, that’s because that’s what he looks like, right? Read on for the most magical movie Santas we’ll never forget.

    The Santa Clause

    In this hilarious trilogy, you get to know not only Santa, but the worker elves as well. We love that this Santa loves his job and his fam. We also love that we get to see the toys being made by the elves and how they love working there, too. These movies are a Christmas must.

    Nightmare Before Christmas

    You get a new look into a different kind of Santa in the Nightmare Before Christmas. Whether it’s Jack dressed up as him, or the Santa they kidnap, this movie is unlike any other. We love the spooky—yet totally cute—spin on the holidays.

    Fred Claus

    We see a new side to the man in the giant red suit in this 2007 comedy. What happens when his older brother Fred comes to visit the North Pole? It looks like even Santa can’t always avoid family drama during the holidays.

    Elf is a modern Christmas classic that we watch at least five times over the holiday break. You get to see how toys are tested before delivery and it’s totally obvious that Santa really cares about everyone in the North Pole. 

  • 5FrostyTheSnowman.jpg

    Frosty the Snowman

    This animated classic is all about the best snowman around! We love that we get to hear about Santa and the North Pole from Frosty’s viewpoint. This Santa knows when his friends are in trouble and is always there to help—what’s not to love about that?

  • 6Miracle34thStreet.jpg

    Miracle on 34th Street

    We grew up watching this classic where Santa is given a face to the name. We love that Santa becomes real to others and how the Christmas joy is spread to all just because of a man who claims he is Santa Claus.

    Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town

    One of our fave claymation throwbacks where we get to hear how this adorable Santa and many Claus-like holiday traditions came to be.
