2013 Top 10 Family Christmas/Holiday Movie or Television Shows
UNDATED -- In 2011, What To Do With The Kids polled its followers and asked them to share their list of the top Christmas or Holiday Movies or Television Shows that the whole family can watch.
Two years later, What To Do With The Kids ask its followers again and there has been quite a shift in popularity of some of those classic movies.
It seems that black and white movies are now out. Many parents suggested that once the movie started, the kids would complain about the color, or lack of it. Many families have said that although they enjoyed watching the old black and white movies in past years, they tend to agree with their kids that it has very little appeal today. The Frank Capra classic Its a Wonderful Life dropped from second to third place while Miracle on 34th Street drop to eighth place.
Animated features are as popular as ever but many adults commented that they were not able to watch them on regular television as they normally would because of their busy schedules so they opted to purchase a copy on DVD. Many parents commented that they had purchased DVD or Blue Ray versions of their favorites but made an effort to only bring them out during the holiday season.
Ron Howards The Grinch went from honorable mention to a tie for number six faster than a runaway sled pulled by a little dog, while A Christmas Story was shot off the list (by a BB gun) all together.
Most respondents, however, said they still do get the family together to watch at least one holiday movie.
With more than 1,400 entries, What To Do With The Kids presents the updated Top 10 Family Christmas/Holiday Movie or Television Shows:
