Christmas Movie Checklist: A Menu for the Whole Holiday Season!

Listen. Sometimes a person just needs a feel-good movie with a pleasant soundtrack, a predictable plot, plenty of cozy holiday elements, and a happy ending. 

If we put it into checklist form, does it make you feel like you’re accomplishing important tasks? 

Well, we did. Peruse our menu of movies, beginning with some starters to set the mood, moving into the main course for some solid Christmas cinema, and wrap it all up in a bow with the dessert selections.

How many have you seen already? How many can you enjoy before this holiday season is over? Bon appetit!


Linda is a Michigan native who moved to Iowa City in 2011 and hasn’t left yet. She and her husband of twelve years, Jacob, have two spunky kids – a kindergartner and a third grader. Linda works full time at the University of Iowa as the Administrative Director for the Medical Scientist Training Program. Together, Linda and her family enjoy cheering for the Nebraska Cornhuskers (shhhh!), going on adventures both big and small, and playing board games (they have over 100 and will play with anyone they can talk into it). Linda is often told she has two volumes: on and off, and she will enthusiastically respond to any news you tell her. No matter the volume she uses, Linda is an “old soul” with a love for baking, embroidery, and old movies.
