It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s also the time of the year when you watch (and re-watch) your favorite Christmas movies. In fact, we contribute a lot of money to the Christmas movie industry— and if you ask me, it’s money well-spent.

According to Box Office Mojohere are the Top 10 highest grossing Christmas and holiday movies of all-time.

10. Four Christmases 

What would a good movie list be without Reese Witherspoon? Four Christmases has grossed over $120 million

9. A Christmas Carol 

This sweet Christmas flick has brought in over $130 million since 2009— and climbing!

8. The Santa Claus 2 

Not to be forgotten, Tim Allen’s sequel to his 1994 hit brought in over $139 million since its 2002 release.

7. The Santa Claus

Everyone’s favorite 1994 Santa, Tim Allen, helped bring in over $144 million for this beloved Christmas flick.

6. Elf 

Who doesn’t love seeing Will Ferrel in tights? Elf has grossed over $173 million, bringing in $31 million during its opening alone.

5. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York 

Some would argue that this is one of the better movies in the Home Alone franchise, but, I digress. The hit sequel starring Macaulay Culkin has raked in over $173 million since 1992.

4. The Polar Express 

This sweet childhood classic has grossed over $186 million since its release in 2004. Do you hear the bells?

3. Dr. Suess’ The Grinch 

It’s hard to believe that this newly-released film is already at the no. 3 spot, but it has already grossed over $239 million since its November release.

2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas 

Starring Jim Carrey, this movie deserves to be on the list of classics— and with a lifetime gross of over $260 million, it appears I’m not alone in that thinking.

1. Home Alone 

Released in 1990, Home Alone has grossed over $285 million in its lifetime.
