For over four decades, This Old House has been an institution on public television.

Where to watch Elf, the Will Ferrell Christmas movie
Will Ferrell in Elf.

Twenty years ago, who would have guessed that Elf would become one of the all-time great Christmas movies? It was only the second feature film helmed by Jon Favreau, and it was one of Will Ferrell's first leading roles following his long stint on Saturday Night Live. That combination proved to be too irresistible for audiences to pass up, which is why Elf is now celebrating two decades as a perennial holiday hit.

Ferrell stars as Buddy the elf, who just happens to be biologically human. Buddy grew up in the North Pole surrounded by elves who work for Santa Claus. He just doesn't fit in very well among the elves. One holiday season, Santa gives Buddy the inspiration to travel from the North Pole to New York City so he can meet the father he never knew. That's the basic setup for Elf, and now we're going to tell you where you can stream it this holiday season.

Where to watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
The cast of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

Forty years ago, the Griswold family found out that "it's a long way down the Holiday Road" during their big screen debut in National Lampoon's Vacation. The Griswolds returned in 1985 with the first sequel, National Lampoon's European Vacation. However, the Griswold clan has perhaps become best known for the third movie, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, which arrived in theaters in 1989 on its way toward becoming a holiday favorite.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are the only actors to have stayed with the franchise through all five films, including Vegas Vacation in 1997 and Vacation in 2015. Chase and D'Angelo have been playing Clark and Ellen Griswold since 1983, but their kids have been recast in every subsequent film. In Christmas Vacation, Johnny Galecki and Juliette Lewis stepped in to play the Griswold children, Rusty and Audrey.

Where to watch Love Actually
Keira Knightley and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Love Actually.

Most romantic comedies tend to focus on one or two couples. However, Love Actually ups the ante with eight different couples throughout the film, and you might need a scorecard to keep up with them all. Director Richard Curtis assembled an all-star cast for his ultimate rom-com. And it's also a Christmas movie!

Love Actually plays well year-round, but it's become a holiday favorite over the last two decades. This year also marks the 20th anniversary for Love Actually, which makes it the perfect time to revisit this classic flick -- preferably with someone you love. But for the single folks, there's a lot to like here as well.
