As you finish off the last of your Thanksgiving leftovers, give in to the temptation to start celebrating Christmas with the best that Netflix has to offer.
Whether you prefer horror, sci-fi, romance, classic, comedy, or animated flix, Netflix has a depthless number of titles for you to choose from this holiday season. This blog post will guide you to Netflix’s top Christmas movies. All you have to bring is the popcorn (or peppermint bark).
The Christmas season is defined by the classic films we all grew up watching with our families. Luckily, Netflix provides several of them, so childhood nostalgia is just a click away.
White Christmas (1954) – Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye star in this classic post-wartime musical. Follow along as the two war buddies sing and dance their way through a holiday resort in pursuit of a pair of beautiful sisters.
Christmas With the Kranks (2004) – This slapstick comedy classic, starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, only garnered 5% on Rotten Tomatoes, but that’s part of its charm. Luther and Nora Krank opt for a Caribbean cruise over the hassle of Christmas decorating, but their neighbors have their eyes on the “best-decorated street” prize.
Can’t choose between Halloween and Christmas? Us either. That’s why we rounded up Netflix’s top horror Christmas movies because we all love to see a killer Santa sometimes.
Hide & Seek (2010) – This Bollywood flick takes the creepiness of mall Santas to another level. A group of adult friends gets stuck in a mall after hours and is being pursued by a murderer posing as mall Santa. A suspenseful game of hide and seek is their only way to survive the night.
Red Christmas (2016) – If you’re a fan of Strangers, there’s a good chance you’ll like this Australian slasher. Christmas takes a turn for the worst when a family’s holiday retreat is interrupted by a stranger at the door. Violent, dark, and suspenseful, Red Christmas is the goriest Christmas movie Netflix has to offer.
If you’ve already seen every cheesy Hallmark movie three times and you still want more, Netflix has a bucket of sticky-sweet romcoms to choose from.
Santa Girl (2019) – Remember when Jennifer Stone played Harper, the quirky friend from “Wizards of Waverly Place”? She returns to the silver screen as Santa’s daughter in this modern romcom. Under pressure to take over the family business and cooperate with an arranged marriage, Cassie Claus chooses her own new adventure: college.
