Initially, Kris attracts people’s love when he replaces a drunken Santa Claus in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. However, he gets institutionalized as insane because he keeps on claiming to be the real Santa even afterwards. The only person who believes him enough to argue is a young lawyer.

Another suggestion for the fans of really old Christmas movies is ‘An American Christmas Carol’ (1979). This classic movie tells the story of an American old bitter miser who gets a ghostly chance to redeem himself on Christmas Eve.

Interestingly enough, there is also another version of the Dickens tale called ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’. It is particularly suitable for kids.

If you and your family like classic family Christmas movies, then you will probably also enjoy the ‘Santa Claus’ series.
