9 Christmas Movies to Stream on Netflix
There’s nothing quite like the pleasure we get from throwing on some sweats, snuggling up with a cup of cocoa, and watching Christmas movies every day until December 25 (and maybe even after — we’re not judging.) But if your family has worn out your holiday DVDs, or got rid of them to minimize clutter, then you may be in need of some Christmas movies on Netflix that you can easily stream throughout the month of December.
Check out our list of the best Christmas movies to watch on Netflix this holiday season.
A spoiled and terrible postman Jesper teams up with a reclusive, burly toy maker named Klaus to bring cheer (and toys) to the children of Smeerensberg, an icy, Nordic island that has lost its happiness to generations-long family feuds.
Word soon gets out, and the children of Smeerensberg start writing letters to Klaus to request their toy of choice and explain any recent selfless acts they have performed. Their parents, however, decide to put aside their differences and work together to rid the town of their new common enemy: Jesper and Klaus.
With stunning visuals and a cast that includes Jason Schwartzman, J.K. Simmons, and Rashida Jones, the animated Netflix original Klaus breathes new life into a classic legend.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
The famous Dr. Seuss book gets the live-action treatment in this Ron Howard-directed film. Jim Carrey stars as the Grinch, with other notable stars like Christine Baranski and Molly Shannon in supporting roles. Kids and adults alike will enjoy seeing how Cindy Lou Who tries to melt the Grinch’s cold, cold heart.
The Knight Before Christmas
Netflix favorite Vanessa Hudgens (The Princess Switch) is back with a holiday story about a woman who has given up on the “happily ever after” she’s read about in fairytales. That is, of course, until she encounters a 14th-century prince who has traveled through time. Could he prove to be the real-life love story she’s been seeking?
The Princess Switch
Apparently, Netflix is well aware that everyone loves a good princess story (and tbh, they’re not wrong). In The Princess Switch, Vanessa Hudgens plays a single American baker who enters a baking competition in Belgravia. While she’s there, she meets a woman who looks just like her and is engaged to a prince. The two switch lives for a bit and—surprise, surprise—romantic entanglements ensue.
A Christmas Prince
This 2017 holiday movie proved the point that the people of Netflix appreciate sap this time of year. As soon as it premiered, this one quickly became a favorite (admittedly bad) movie. Even Stephen Colbert hilariously admitted to being obsessed with the story about an ambitious American journalist who goes to a fictional European village to cover the royal family. Shocker: She falls in love with the prince.
Christmas With The Kranks
Starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, this Christmas film originally premiered in 2004, but it still holds up. When their daughter won’t be home for Christmas, the Kranks decide to skip the holiday altogether and go on an awesome vacation…until she changes her plans. Then they have to figure out how to pull together their annual Christmas party at the last minute.
When trees begin to line the snowy streets of New York City, it’s a sure sign that Christmas is just around the corner. In the midst of the holiday madness, many people don’t take the time to consider where their trees came from, though. This documentary follows Francois, the Tree Man, and the complicated, and sometimes emotional journey he takes from Quebec every Christmas season to bring holiday cheer to New Yorkers.
Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch
A refreshed animated retelling of the tale of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, this take on the holiday classic might be a little less frightening to kids wary of Jim Carrey’s live-action Grinch. This movie includes the beloved storyline, of course, with a few new scenes that will entertain anyone who’s seen other versions of the story a few (or many) times, so the whole family can watch together.
The Christmas Chronicles
A Netflix Original Film from 2018, this live-action, kid-friendly movie follows a pair of siblings as they embark on an all-night adventure with Mr. Claus himself to save Christmas. With Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, adorable elves, reindeer, and plenty of other classic Christmas elements thrown in, this movie will make kids and adults alike laugh.
