The Polar Express tells the story of a young boy from Grand Rapids, Michigan, frantically searching for confirmation that Santa Claus actually exists (this seems to be a recurring Christmas movie theme).

One Christmas eve, he boards the Polar Express, a magic train bound for the North Pole. On the train, he meets three other children who like him, are waiting to meet Santa Claus.
What follows is a fantastic journey across snow, forest and ice to find out where the true spirit of Christmas lies (Hint: it's in you).
WARNING: Make a ton of hot chocolate before watching this. The scene with the dancing hot chocolate waiters will make you crave the stuff like you wouldn't believe.
