Best Christmas Movies Ranked! What 106 online movie rankings collectively say the top 61 Christmas movies of all time are

We have collected information from 106 sources after an exhaustive search and here are the rankings.  Interesting that Die Hard (1988) is so high on the list, ranked number six among the best Christmas movies of all time, given it's not a conventional Christmas film.  As expected, some of the older classics take the top spots such as It's a Wonderful Life (1946) ranked number one, although not close to unanimous, and Miracle on 34th Street (1947) at fourth.

Scene from Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands (1990) tied ranking at 21st place among Christmas movies.
