Christmas has the best stuff. The best decorations, the best cookies, the best music—and, of course, the best movies and family traditions. Just think of all the warm holiday memories you have, including cuddling up by the tree with a big bowl of popcorn in your lap, watching the same movies year after year. (Don't forget mugs of hot chocolate!) Maybe you wear some of these Christmas costumes when you make your family Christmas cards. There are also plenty of ways to include Christmas costumes with the rest of your holiday cheer, whether you're keeping the Santa tradition alive for another year or you're planning to do a live Nativity. Check out these fantastic Xmas costumes and you just might find something for a new family tradition!
Christmas Movie Costumes
Santa Claus Movie Costumes
|Classic Santa Claus Costume||Kids' Santa Dress||Plus Size Jolly St. Nick||Plus Size Mrs. Claus|
|Deluxe Mrs. Claus Costume||Child Santa||Adult Santa Claus Dress||Plus Size Vintage Santa|
Of course, there are plenty of Christmas movies focused on Santa Claus. From traditional Santas like the one from Miracle on 34th Street or more modern ones like Tim Allen's snarky Scott Calvin from The Santa Clause and Billy Bob Thorton's over-the-top Bad Santa, you'll have enough options to portray in your Santa Claus suit. As iconic as Santa Claus is, It's hard to forget Mrs. Claus. (Honestly, he wouldn't be able to do what he does every year without his best helper!) The two of them have certainly gone through thick and thin as maintaining a seasonal business is tough work. So if you're looking to buy a mall Santa costume, a cute Mrs. Claus costume or you or your kids want Santa costumes to wear at home, you can find the Santa suits to suit your needs online at HalloweenCostumes.com!

Feeling a bit grouchy about the holidays? If you're thinking about stealing Christmas to make it go away, maybe you'll want to dress up as the Grinch for the holidays. On the other hand, you may want to be a Who from Whoville to try and teach the Grinch a lesson about holiday cheer. No matter the case, these are some of the best Grinch movie costumes for Christmas! Not only are Christmas movie costumes great for the silly family photos on your greeting cards, but they are also perfect for holiday parties. (Who wouldn't accept a present handed out by someone in a Grinch costume or Cindy Lou Who costume?) You can even make the family dog look like Max by equipping him (or her) with a pair of Max antlers for pets!
Frosty the Snowman Costumes

Just be careful crossing the street—the yellow ones don't stop.
The Polar Express Costumes
|Adult North Pole Conductor||Kids' North Pole Conductor|
The Polar Express was an animated film released in 2004 based on the classic children's book. Tom Hanks voiced many characters in the film, including the conductor of the Polar Express itself. Dressing up as him, or maybe someone a little bit more recognizable (ahem, Santa or an elf) would be a great treat for book-loving families. If you're not keen on DIY-ing a homemade elf costume or Santa costume to hand out the presents, these Christmas costumes should do the trick!

|Adult Anna Costume||Kids' Adaptive Queen Elsa||Toddler Olaf Costume||Plus Size Kristoff|
|Ice Nokk Wheelchair Costume||Olaf Dog Costume||Kids' Frozen 2 Anna||Adult Prestige Elsa|
While these might seem like odd Christmas character costume ideas, Frozen is an excellent movie for the winter season. Seeing those beautiful wintery scenes makes you just want to curl up by the fire with some hot chocolate. Besides, the movie includes a message about loving family. So, when you're with family around the holidays, why not get a few Frozen costumes and figure out who is an Anna, who is an Elsa, or who is an Olaf?
A Christmas Carol Costumes
|Ebenezer Scrooge Costume||Women's Haunting Beauty||Plus Size Ebenezer Scrooge Nightgown||Adult Victorian Ghost|
Whoever thought a movie about being visited by a series of ghosts (scary ghosts!) on Christmas Eve night would not only come with an essential lesson for the holidays, but also end up as a timeless Christmas classic? This Ebenezer Scrooge costume is perfect for anyone who has uttered the phrase "Bah Humbug" in late December. Someone could also dress as a ghost if they'd like to portray a haunting presence (or deliver some haunting presents). These Christmas-themed costumes are sure to put some cheer into that humbug.
A Charlie Brown Christmas Costumes
|Adult Snoopy Costume||Girls' Lucy Costume||Toddler Snoopy Outfit||Adult Charlie Brown Shirt|
Here's another Christmas classic with an important message! Despite the small, droopy tree and others' obsessions with material objects, Charlie Brown knows the true meaning of Christmas. Want to direct your own Christmas pageant? You can dress up as Charlie himself. If you're more interested in messing with old Chuck, maybe Lucy or even Snoopy would be better options. These also make great Christmas party costumes—they even had a Christmas party in the movie! Pop in the soundtrack and dance the night away like some of your favorite characters.
Live Nativity Costumes
Mary Costumes and Joseph Costumes

Magi Costumes and Shepherd Costumes
|Adult Balthasar||Adult Melchior||Adult Gaspar||Blue Shepherd|
