Six 80s Christmas Movies You Must Watch Every Year

Christmas is truly a magical time. Christmas lights, snow, hot chocolate, presents, and Santa Claus. Hardly anyone wouldn’t love it, especially with our80s tees.

Are you one of those people who fall in love with Christmas every year and can’t get through winter without rewatching old Christmas flicks?

We are too. There’s a special feeling with old movies, right?

The music, an old cassette tape, some popcorn, and a lot of fun. That’s why we've put together a list of the best six Christmas movies you should watch every year. Enjoy!

Christmas Vacation & 80s Tees

Ha-Hap-Happiest Christmas T-Shirt

Christmas Vacation is a 1989 American film and probably one of the best from the National Lampoon series.

The film is gleefully funny and lively. The actors are great at making you laugh at every situation possible. The combination of different dialogues, visuals, and audio will make you feel like Christmas is knocking on your door.

Jeremiah S. Chechik, the film director, has done a fantastic job transmitting this incredible energy that is a Christmas comedy must. The actors are magnetic, especially Chevy Chase as Clark.

Everything about this film is fun, especially when you pair it with one of our “Hap-Hap Happiest Christmas” retro vintage 80's t-shirt and a cup of eggnog.

Die Hard 

Now I have a machine gun! Ho Ho Ho T-Shirt

Who doesn’t love a little action and masculinity on a Christmas evening? Die Hard is the perfect film for those who love getting into old-school thriller movies.

Die Hard was produced in 1988 and directed by John McTiernan, and features the young Hollywood star Bruce Willis in a wild Christmas adventure.

The police detective John McClane must save some lives in the Nakatomi Plaza when the German radical Hans Gruber seizes the whole place. Who’s not into John’s “Now I have a machine gun! Ho Ho Ho”!?!?

We’ve got a fitting graphic t-shirt for you! Here’s some advice. It’s better to pair it with a packet of chips and hot chocolate. We’re speaking from experience!

A Christmas Story

You'll Shoot You're Eye Out T-Shirt

Cultural, historical and esthetical, A Christmas Story is a must-see you can watch with your whole family. A combination of different anecdotes, jokes, and comedy situations, will bring only joy and delight to your Christmas evening.

The movie was directed by Bob Clark and is based on Jean Shepherd’s semi-fictional book “In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash.” You should definitely read the book if you love this film!

You can even pair the film with one of our retro t-shirts in the store. The “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” tee shirt will boost your mood. And you know what else? Some turkey with mashed potatoes and a little bit of cranberry sauce. And don’t forget the Christmas cookies!

Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Edelen’s Braidwood Inn T-Shirt

Planes, Trains & Automobiles is an American comedy film written, directed, and produced by John Hughes. It stars Steven Martin as Neal Page, a high-end marketing executive, and John Candy as Del Griffith, a goodhearted but annoying salesman.

The movie creates an atmosphere of absolute joy. The road trip made by the two in an attempt to get Neal home to Chicago in time for Thanksgiving Dinner makes you feel right at home.

The best combo you can make is combining this movie with our store's graphic tees.

PerhapsEdelen’s Braidwood short sleeve t-shirt will make magic for you. Don’t forget to pair it with some popcorn and snacks, and be ready for a joyful trip!


Bah Humbug T-Shirt

Scrooged is an American Christmas fantasy film directed by Richard Donner and Michael O’Donoghue. The film is based on the 1843 novella "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens and stars Bill Murray as Frank Cross.

Frank is a cynical and selfish television executive who is visited by a succession of ghosts on Christmas Eve—this is the best film to regain your Christmas spirit, as the main character does throughout the film.

It’s best to pair this movie with graphic tees to get you into the Christmas spirit. While we’re bringing you free shipping, you can bring some snacks.Bah humbug!

Some fruits will suit this magical film best. You can find that by yourself!

Gremlins & 80s Tees

Don't Feed After Midnight T-Shirt

Gremlins is a black comedy horror film directed by Joe Dante and written by Chris Columbus (NOT the Italian explorer!). The story follows a young man who receives a strange creature as a pet.

The creature spawns more and more little and aggressive monsters that wreak havoc on the entire city on Christmas Eve. The music makes this film super special (if you want our humble opinion).

The soundtracks create the feeling of Christmas, cookies, and plenty of jokes and gremlins.

Pair this film with our “Don’t feed after midnight” adult t-shirt for an even better experience. Oh, and don’t forget to eat snacks before midnight. The gremlins might be watching!


That's all, folks! Thank you for paying attention to whatever jokes we had for you. It’s time for an innovative and witty conclusion… Christmas is truly an unbelievable time—it’s a bit freezing, though.

No matter what film you watch, you’ll feel merry. And, it’s not the film itself… It’s the fact that it’s Christmas!

Logo t-shirt, short sleeve, long sleeve, tank tops, vintage 80s t-shirts, music t-shirt or 80's music, tape t-shirt, hoodies, and more—take your pick!
