10 Of The Best 2022 Christmas Movies To Bring Good Tidings



oom, all of a sudden the holiday season is here again. Oh, how time flies!  The question is “how do you intend to make your Christmas season memorable?” Family events, outdoor gatherings, food, travel, and of course, movies. While there are lots of activities to engage with your family during the festivities, cozying up to these 2022 Christmas movies is an integral part of the holiday tradition.

If the holiday bug hasn’t bitten you yet, settle in with these movies and watch the scrooge-feeling escape through your pores. Even if you belong to a team no-Christmas-prep-before-December or already purchased a Christmas tree, Christmas movies have a way of sprinkling all the action tinsel and glitter across town.

Movie streaming services and linear channels like Disney, Apple TV, Netflix, Hallmark Channel, and Mysteries are already rolling out dozens of blockbuster movies, per usual. If you’re spoiled for choice (obviously), I’ve got a list of 2022 Christmas movies that can do right by you this holiday season, just like I did last year (you’re welcome). But this year, we’re ditching the typical boy-meets-girl storyline and favoring a more rebellious lineup. Think comical violence, explosions, monster movies, and romantic comedies. After all, a good subversion helps spice things up.

Check out these exclusive lists of hot 2022 Christmas movies you should see this holiday…

Angry and heartbroken, Shelby set out for revenge on the dealer who sold Ruby the heroine, and in the cause of seeking revenge, he took a huge drug empire to war.

This might be one of the most interesting 2022 Christmas movies, but if you’re anything like me, then you’ve been stuck on the different annual versions of A Christmas Story for decades now. This year, Ralphie, who was once a rambunctious 11-year-old kid, is now a 51-year-old aspiring novelist and father in the sequel to the 1983 Christmas classic.
