The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974)

"The Year Without a Santa Claus" is a 1974 stop motion film produced by Rankin/Bass Productions. The story is based on Phyllis McGinley's 1956 book with the same name. I don't have to tell you that this movie is a classic. There's a reason this film has been in continuous circulation since it was first released. Santa Claus has a bad cold and is considering to skip his Christmas Eve run but Mrs. Claus and his elves set out to change his mind. He seems to think that the world doesn't care about him or Christmas anymore. The elves set out to find proof of the Christmas spirit. This film is quite possibly the best stop motion film I've ever seen. It is charming, funny, and will put you in the Christmas spirit. I love the Snow Miser. He's a great character. This film is sure to put a smile on your face and show you that Christmas is a time of giving and love.

Dial Code Santa Claus (1989)

"Dial Code Santa Claus" also known as "Game Over" or "36.15 code Père Noël" is a 1989 French horror-thriller film written and directed by René Manzor. The movie is about a boy who stays up late for Christmas to see Santa Claus. But he will soon know that Santa Claus is a ruthless dogkiller. I would say this is a great movie for people who love a thrilling movie for Christmas and don't mind a different language. This movie is very similar to Home Alone. In fact it was made before Home Alone was made. It is like Rambo meets Home Alone, except Santa is here to get you. It is one of the best Christmas thriller movies you will ever watch.

Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

It tells the story of three homeless people who find an abandoned baby in the trash on Christmas Eve. They set out to find the child's parents, with many adventures along the way. It is filled with suspense, drama, and romance. Anyone who enjoys anime and a good family movie should watch this. It is a very touching movie. You never see the end coming.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983)

"Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" also known as "Furyo" is a 1983 Japanese-British war film directed by Nagisa Ōshima and starring David Bowie, Tom Conti, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi Kitano and Jack Thompson. This masterpiece is a classic film about a prisoner in Japan during World War II, based on the books written by Laurens van der Post. In 1942 British soldier Jack Celliers comes to a Japanese P.O.W. camp in Java. The camp is run by Yonoi, a Japanese military who believes that the allied prisoners are wimps for surrendering instead of Japanese way committing suicide. One of the prisoners named John Lawrence who speaks Japanese tries to bridge the two sides and make peace. The story is almost like a play. It is a very serious play. Even if there not a lot of action. And it has the best acting ever. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good war movie with a new twist.

Die Hard (1988)

It tells the story of a New York Police Department officer who finds himself trying to stop a group of terrorists that have taken over a Los Angeles high-rise office building on Christmas Eve. It is an unforgettable Christmas movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys action films.
