RAVE Reviews, the innovative website that ranks entertainment programs based on advanced data-driven analysis, has released a list of “50 Best Christmas Movies. ”

“With the holiday season in full swing, we decided to compile a list of popular holiday films. Our goal is simple: motivate people to dust off the classics and go for a nostalgic spin,” said Hillary Miller, Managing Editor for RAVE Reviews.

RAVE used data from other websites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB to compile the list. The 1965 film A Charlie Brown Christmas tops the list, while A Christmas Carol, released in 1951, comes second. A more recent film, A Christmas Prince, released in 2017, comes third.
