It’s about to be the most wonderful time of the year! Also, the best moment to cuddle up by the fireplace with a hot cocoa and a great holiday movie while the temperature drops outside. The problem is that there are so many wonderful holiday films to choose from that it may be hard to pick one. Luckily, we broke down the best holiday movies to watch based on your zodiac sign to ensure you find the right movie for your vibe.


Die Hard

Aries likes action movies, so leave it to the fiery sign to find comfort in a flick that centers around someone having to not only save Christmas but also the lives of everyone in the office building. This classic movie will totally boost your adrenaline and holiday vibe. Yippee-ki-yay!


When Harry Met Sally

This is the ultimate holiday rom-com. Two besties ignore their decade-long feels and suddenly embrace them during New Year’s Eve. Much like Taurus, Harry and Sally are always looking for their ideal partner but allow their stubborn sentiments to get in the way of seeing that they are in love with each other.


Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Mercury is the planetary ruler of Gemini and controls travel. That means the twin star constellation will find humor in this feel-good holiday movie in which all travel goes haywire. This flick will serve as a reminder for everyone to be nicer to the mercurial sign all year long.


A Bad Moms Christmas

Even moms need a place to vent about the holiday season. After all, they spend weeks making sure it will be a perfect day for their families. Being the maternal sign of the zodiac, or one who takes care of others the most, Cancers will appreciate this movie.


The Night Before

Leos are the life of the party, which is what these three pals are looking for. On their way towards finding the Nutcracka Ball—aka “the holy grail of Christmas parties in New York City"—they learn a lot about their friendships with each other, goals, hopes, families, relationships, and themselves.


200 Cigarettes

This is a punk holiday movie that’s set in N.Y.C. during the 1980s. The funny vignettes will make Virgos laugh and help them to appreciate their friends, lovers, and families more. Also, it’ll prove to be a movie that they’ll think and talk about for at least a whole week.


Love Actually

Libras live their lives through understanding partnerships and relationships. All the more reason why they’ll connect to this holiday flick that navigates the journey towards happiness, forgiveness, and love during the holiday season. Plus, it’s the best movie to watch while Libra cuddles up with their crush on cold nights.


Bad Santa

Real talk: Scorpios are drawn to edgier sentiments, which is why they’ll find amusement in this film, because it isn’t the traditional seasonal flick. Bad Santa is a Christmas film with a darker twist. It does have a lovely yet odd happy ending, which is ideal for Scorpios because they love surprises.


It’s a Wonderful Life

There’s nothing more frustrating for free-spirited Sags than a life unlived. But once they realize that they have an amazing life and existence—even if they never left their small town—then they will see that the adventure is where they are and in the people they’re running wild with.


Miracle on 34th Street

Capricorns are business-minded peeps who sometimes need a reminder to awaken their childlike spirit during the holiday season. This movie will allow them to reflect on their past, present, and future with compassion and seasonal vigor. They will have fun watching this movie solo or with their fam.


The Polar Express

This magical journey will evoke Aquarius’s free spirit and awaken their heart to all of the holiday magic coming their way. They’ll also start to believe in themselves, be brave, embrace their friends with open arms, and give in to the wonderful energy of the season by watching this whimsical movie.


While You Were Sleeping

It’s not unlike Pisces to make up a version of a story that is half based on facts and half based on emotions. (No, we're not shading them—it’s what makes Pisces creative.) That's why this whimsical rom-com is a must for the hopeless-romantic Pisceans.
