Hi, I'm Lauren Zima for About.com. Wanna get in the Christmas spirit? The perfect thing to do is grab some hot chocolate, bundle up next to the tree, and watch a movie. We've got your top 5 favorite Christmas movies, all fun, all family friendly, and all perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit. At number five, 'Miracle on 34th Street.' The story of a little girl who sat on Santa's lap the day after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. From there begins a story of doing what's right and believing in life's magic and wonders. An Oscar-winner, this classic is a great watch, and teaches important life lessons. Yeah , you gotta have the oldies but goodies. At number four, 'White Christmas' is perfect to have on in the background while you eat or decorate the tree. Listen to the songs and check out the fun dance numbers, all in a gorgeous winter setting. This movie will really get you in the mood for the winter wonderland of Christmas time. But, the holidays are also a time to laugh together. At number three, it's National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Have a good chuckle about how crazy the guy in your life is about putting up the Christmas lights, and enjoy the iconic character that is Clark Griswold. Speaking of memorable characters, who could forget Ralphie? At number two -- it's right there in the title, 'A Christmas Story.' Laughs aplenty here too. Just don't go sticking your tongues to any poles. And if Christmas is about anything, it's appreciating your family, friends and loved ones. So with number one, remember that it is a wonderful life with, of course, 'It's A Wonderful Life.' Grab a bell to ring to give an angel its wings. These have been your top five Christmas movies.
