You’re wishing on a star, okay? If only these 10 classic holiday movies were more available.

As you’re pondering your best holiday movie ever, here are 10 more holiday-themed movies to get you started.

There are few holidays that we enjoy as much as Christmas, and there are even fewer films that celebrate Christmas as thoroughly as “A Christmas Story.” The film — in which we encounter a character named Ralphie as he tries to get a snowman out of a box — resonates because of its wonderfully quotable lines and beloved characters, including Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson’s typically no-nonsense Ralphie. But all holiday movies have their tropes, and “A Christmas Story” holds its own with nods to classics like “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “A Christmas Carol.”

Still reeling from “Jingle All the Way” or “A Christmas Carol” and all those mediocre reruns from Christmases past? Here are 10 other holiday movies — not to mention some classic pics — that should also have been on your bucket list.
