Fortunately, some of the greatest Christmas movies ever made are for children. These are the top Christmas movies for kids to watch with the whole family in 2022 when you want to gather everyone around with freshly popped popcorn strings and mulled wine (just kidding, we all know it’s really juice boxes and whatever Clif bar you have on hand). Some emphasize the positive aspects of the day while emphasizing the concepts of charity and family unity.
The most recent Christmas movies for kids are at the top of this list of the greatest family-friendly holiday films available on Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, and other streaming services.
