Turner Classic Movies presents a bucket list of the best and most beloved holiday films of all time, complete with spirited commentary, behind-the-scenes stories, and photos spanning eight decades of Christmastime favorites.

Nothing brings the spirit of the season into our hearts quite like a great holiday movie. "Christmas films" come in many shapes and sizes and exist across many genres. Some, likeIt''s a Wonderful LifeandA Christmas Story, are perennials, while others, such asDie Hard, have only gradually become yuletide favorites. But they all have one thing in common: they use themes evoked by the holiday period - nostalgia, joy, togetherness, dysfunction, commercialism, or cynicism - as a force in their storytelling.

Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Moviesshowcases the very best among this uniquely spirited strain of cinema. Each film is profiled on what makes it a "Christmas movie," along with behind-the-scenes stories of its production, reception, and legacy. Complemented by a trove of color and black-and-white photos,Turner Classic Movies:Christmas in the Moviesis a glorious salute to a collection of the most treasured films of all time.
Among the 30 films included:The Shop Around the Corner,Holiday Inn,Meet Me in St. Louis,It''s a Wonderful Life,Miracle on 34th Street,White Christmas,A Christmas Story,National Lampoon''s Christmas Vacation,Home Alone,Little Women,andThe Nightmare Before Christmas.
