"SANTA! OH MY GOD! SANTA’S COMING! I KNOW HIM!" Merry Christmas! In honor of the holiday, we're posting this fun Christmas Movie mashup made by our editor friend Sleepy Skunk. It features footage and clips and some of the best moments from all of your Christmas favorites, including It's a Wonderful Life, Polar Express, The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street, Love Actually, Home Alone, A Christmas Carol and a few others. There's even a few clips from Mike Dougherty's Krampus, released this year; though there isn't anything from Die Hard. What! I still count that one as a Christmas movie. Watch below, and enjoy it.
My favorites? Probably Home Alone, followed by Gremlins, followed by A Christmas Story. Sleepy Skunk wrote in an email to us: "In the event that tomorrow [Christmas Day] ends up a slow news day, [a] British film magazine asked me to put together a heartwarming mashup of the best Christmas movies." This was commissioned by the website Film3Sixty Magazine and edited by our friend "Sleepy Skunk", who also put together a year end Movie Trailer Mashup video. Which of these classic Christmas films are your favorites?
