7 Christmas Movie Sequels You My Have Never Heard Of

In addition to the classic Christmas movies that people love to watch year round, there are a series of not-so-great sequels that were released with the holiday spirit in mind. With that in mind, Mental Floss has compiled a list of seven sequels to Christmas films that you’ve probably never heard of. Here they are:

  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie’s Island Adventure(2003). This time around, Eddie (Randy Quaid) and his family find themselves celebrating Christmas while trapped on a tropical island. 
  • Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House (2002). Kevin McCallister (Mike Weinberg) has to defend his house--actually his divorced dad’s girlfriend’s house--where he’s spending Christmas. 
  • Home Alone: The Holiday Heist (2012). This film opted for a brand new set of characters, but the set-up is the same: Christmas, thieves and a booby-trapped house.
  • A Christmas Story 2 (2012). This direct-to-video sequel takes place five years after the first movie. Ralphie, having worn down his father enough to get a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle, now has his heart set on a car. 
  • Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas (2014). It’s more of a condensed mash-up of Elfand its musical adaptation, Elf: The Musical.
  • Santa Baby 2: Christmas Maybe (2009). Jenny McCarthy returns as Santa’s daughter Mary, who has to step in and save Christmas when her father has a midlife crisis and an agitator at the North Pole tries to get the elves to go on strike.
  • Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July (1979). This sequel involves a plot by the evil wizard Winterbolt to destroy the magic that makes Rudolph’s nose glow.
