The A-Z of Christmas Movie Facts




When the winter season dawns upon us, one of the most exciting things is being able to cuddle up on the sofa and watch your favorite Christmas movies.

Whether it’s something you like to do on your own after work on a cold winter’s night, or with your partner or family members, there are few things that make us feel more festive than Christmas movies.

Here are some facts that you might not already know about the most-loved holiday movies.

This movie was the last time that Michael Yarmush voiced Arthur Read.

He had been voicing him since Season 1 was created in 1996, which meant that by the time he finished, he had been voicing Arthur for a total of four years.

Bad Santa is definitely not suitable for children, and not only because the ‘f-word’ is used a total of 147 times!

In the Czech Republic, the movie is known as Santa is a Pervert.

Christmas in Connecticut features a main character called Elizabeth Lane, who is a columnist writing for a newspaper.

She was loosely based on Family Circle Magazine columnist Gladys Taber.

This movie featured Jim Carrey who played a total of seven roles within the movie.

Not only did he play Old Scrooge and several younger versions of Scrooge, but he also played the three ghosts.

Elf featured a cameo appearance by Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in A Christmas Story.

While he went on to create and produce movies, he also enjoyed playing cameo roles in various productions.

In Elf, he played one of Santa’s elves un-credited, saying he did it just for fun.

Frozen was created based on the story of The Snow Queen written by Hans Christian Andersen.

It was first suggested as an idea for a Disney movie in 1939 but took over 70 years to actually be produced and released.

Gremlins is thought to be one of the darker Christmas movies which are popular during the holiday season, but it was first intended to be even darker than that!

When Chris Colombus originally wrote the script, there were several scenes included that were cut out, including a scene where Billy’s mother is beheaded by the Gremlins.

Producers wanted the movie to be family-friendly, hence the reason it was cut.

Home Alone isn’t the only movie to reference another Christmas movie, but the family is shown watching It’s a Wonderful Life while in their hotel room in France.

Many Christmas movies have done this over the years in a subtle way that many people fail to notice unless they look out for it.

The movie was criticized by the FBI in 1947 and was accused of encouraging people to dislike bankers.

In the movie, the main character gets into financial trouble to the point that he is suicidal, causing much distress to himself and his family.

Xmas Without China diverges from the usual Christmas flick story by taking the form of a documentary.

The film follows a family trying to purchase Christmas gifts that are not made in China in order to be more ethical.

They end up spending $166 on Mexican Christmas tree lights, toasting their bread in the oven and avoid gaming on their Xbox during the holidays.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is one of the most classic Christmas stories!

Following the journey of Rudolph, the entire movie is stop-animation and took 18 months to complete.

The work turned out to be worth it because it is the longest-running and highest-rated special in television history.
