15 Christmas Movies For Teens | Movies They Will Actually Watch With You + Snack Pairing
Christmas is just a few weeks away, and we’re getting ready for all of the festivities that come along with celebrating Christmas.
We all share the same love of Christmas being our favorite holiday. One of the things we enjoy doing together as a family during the holidays is watching our favorite Christmas movies together, along with loads of snacks.
As the boys get older, they have outgrown some of the kiddie movies, but there are some movies that, regardless of their age, it’s a must-watch. On a weekend, when it’s snowing and cold outside, we love to all bunker down in the living room, line up our favorite movies, grab our snacks, and have fun together as a family. It doesn’t matter how many times we’ve watched some of these Christmas classics, each year, it’s still as funny and the jokes never get old!
I’m sharing our of our favorite Christmas movies we can all watch together as a family. As the boys dive into the teen years, it’s important they are part of the movie picking process. So far, they have all agreed these are their top Christmas movies for teens.

It’s not a movie night without snacks. We like to make kid-friendly drinks for the kids and combine some of their favorite snacks into a mix. With this holiday mix snack, we are using pretzels, peanuts, chocolate chips, popcorn, and Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers. The boys grew up on Goldfish snacks, and we all continue to enjoy them as a snack. Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers have no artificial flavors or preservatives. They are always baked with real cheese, and the Whole Grain Cheddar variety has 12 g of WG per serving. It’s the snack that smiles back, and a snack that I feel good about giving to the boys. We’re pairing our holiday mix with a fun Christmas kid-friendly drink.
The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s a time to celebrate, give back, and spend time with the ones you love. When the boys go on winter break, I look forward to lazy days hanging out with my growing teens, finding ways to get them involved in giving back during the holiday season, traveling, and most importantly, having downtime to spend with each other.
