From "It's a Wonderful Life" to new favorites well on their way to becoming holiday classics, there have been a sleigh-full of notable Christmas movies over the years. Here's 25 of our all-time favorites.

Christmas movies - The Muppet Christmas Carol
17 / 25
Walt Disney Pictures

1992: The Muppets make the most of their turn to tell the classic tale of an old and bitter miser's redemption on Christmas Eve in "The Muppet Christmas Carol." It also gets bonus points for tapping Michael Caine to play Scrooge.
