You already know all of the classics, but there are equally great films that have come out in the last few decades. After you watch Charlie Brown and It's a Wonderful Life for the tenth time, try watching these hilarious holiday movies with your family:
1. Deck the Halls
Are you obsessed with having the best Christmas lights in town? Well, in this movie, Danny DeVito tries to cover his house in so many decorations that it'll be seen from space. However, he ends up having trouble with his neighbor, played by Matthew Broderick. This is one of the most hilarious holiday movies to watch with the family, so don't skip it.

3. Christmas with the Kranks
Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis play a married couple who decide to take a cruise on Christmas and skip celebrating the holiday. Their trip is meant to relax them, but their neighbors make their lives miserable by judging them over their decision.
4. The Santa Clause
Here's another Christmas movie with Tim Allen. After his character accidentally kills Santa on Christmas Eve, he is forced to become the new Santa.
5. Eight Crazy Nights
This movie is all about Hanukkah. It's an animated movie where Adam Sandler plays the voice of almost every character. If you're a fan of him, you'll be a fan of this film.
Are you a Bill Murray fan? If you are, you need to watch this movie about him getting haunted by three different spirits. As the title suggests, it has several references to Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
7. Jingle All the Way
All Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to do is buy a certain toy for his son for Christmas. Of course, we all know how difficult that simple task can be around the holidays.

9. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Chevy Chase has always been hysterical, which is why he's the star of so many comedies. If this one won't make you laugh, then nothing will.
10. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
If you have young kids around, you'll want to skip this one. It has some pretty raunchy scenes, but it also has Neil Patrick Harris singing and dancing, so you don't want to miss out on the fun.
11. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
We've all seen the original, cartoon version of the Grinch's life story, but this one is a live action comedy with Jim Carrey. Even though the characters look ridiculous, it's easy to fall in love with this film. It shows you a whole new side of the Grinch.
It's the happiest time of the year, so make sure that you have holiday cheer. Blast your seasonal tunes, put up decorations, and watch a handful of movies on this list. What's your favorite funny holiday movie?
