These are the Best Christmas Movies on TV This Holiday Season

It's the most wonderful time of the year: time to grab some hot cocoa with those mini marshmallows, make cocoons of throw blankets and binge watch It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Home Alone and all the other Christmas movies that saturate the television schedule during the holiday season.

Holiday movies have been taking over television since November. A simultaneously merry and nauseating number of Christmas movies are already airing and will continue to play days after Christmas.
