On the first day of Christmas, your true love should get you a DVD collection of some of these classic Christmas movies! Nothing beats cozying up with a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite holiday movie. The only thing more nostalgic than these movies are the homes they took place in. Whether fictitious or real, these iconic homes are almost as famous as the movie they were featured in!

First Day of Christmas: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This comedy film brings to life the misadventures of the outrageous Griswold family. The movie was set in Chicago and by the looks of this spacious, elegant home, we can see why this menacing family had so much room for disaster!

Second Day of Christmas: A Christmas Story

Don’t shoot your eye out trying to get your hands on a copy of this classic movie. The home from this movie, located in Cleveland is actually a fully-serviced inn. Nearby, guests who enjoy an overnight stay can visit the A Christmas Story Museum filled with hundreds of behind-the-seen photos, paraphernalia, and insignia from the movie. Leg lamp anyone?!

Third Day of Christmas: Home Alone

We all have seen or heard of this holiday favorite. Although the situation is not ideal, 8-year-old Kevin McCallister made the best of his isolated Christmas while home alone in the family’s red brick house located in Winnetka, Illinois. This house is still one of the most easily recognized homes in the area even decades later after the release of the 90s movie.

Fourth Day of Christmas: The Family Stone

What are the holidays without some crazy family members, right? This comedy-filled movie guides us through the holiday misadventures of the rambunctious Stone family and the “almost engagement” of Everett and Meredith. All their shenanigans were filmed in a gorgeous colonial house in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Fifth Day of Christmas: A Charlie Brown Christmas

Peanuts fans everywhere know and love this movie because of two things: Snoopy and Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree that many people still incorporate into their homes even today. Residing in Hennepin County, Minnesota the side view of Snoopy’s famous doghouse became a standard in the cartoon. According to the Peanuts fandom, Snoopy’s doghouse was much bigger on the inside than it is on the outside, which explains why it was always the hangout spot for him and his friends.
