It's not Christmastime unless everything nearly falls apart first. I mean that. Christmas almost being ruined is a time honored tradition, like decorating the tree, or baking cookies, or drinking your feelings away with spiked egg nog. It wouldn't be a good time without that feeling of suspended peril, and Christmas media has proved that time and time again.

For proof, I've gathered 25 Christmas movies (including a handful of classic TV specials) in chronological order, showing a multitude of times that Christmas was nearly ruined... and how it was, of course, saved at the very last minute.
