Any Rankin/Bass Christmas DVD would work, VeggieTales Christmas movies (The Toy That Saved Christmas and The Star of Christmas), Garfield Christmas, Charlie Brown Christmas

I would keep the movies on the light side for the youngest ones. What may not scare a 10 year old may terrify someone 5 or younger.

Here is a list of Christmas movies and shows that I used to watch with my kids when they were little 2-10 and some others that we stilll watch. Since my kids are now 18 and 20, some of these movies are now distant memories for me, since they stopped watching Barney, little Bear and such a long, long time ago (but, if no one is around, I'll put in the vhs tape and watch some of these by myself):

Twas the night before Christmas
A Garfield Christmas Special
Barney Waiting for Santa
Christopher the Christmas Tree
The Little Drummer Boy
Jack frost
A year without a Santa Claus
Frosty the Snowman
Arthur's Perfect Christmas
The Berenstain Bears christmas Tree
Winnie The Pooh and Christmas Too
Little Bear - Winter Tales

and of course all the Rankin/Bass movies...

Great list! But you have to stop mentioning shows like Little Bear...your're killing me! That was my son's favorite show when he was little. I find myself watching it sometimes when I'm at the house alone, too.
