6 Christmas Movies to Stream on Netflix
This perennial rom com is a good watch any time of year, but with a Christmas theme tying together all of the separate side plots of its all-star ensemble cast, it’s best viewed over eggnog on a December girls’ night.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
We all have an undeniable soft spot for the 1966 TV movie version, but the live action film starring Jim Carrey is just as much fun as it brings Dr. Seuss’ Christmas classic to life. There's a reason it's one of the highest-grossing Christmas films of all time. Plus, that Faith Hill ballad—chills.
When Bing Crosby comes on your local Christmas radio station, you know it immediately. If you’re looking for a truly iconic Christmas flick, immerse yourself in this Irving Berlin song-and-dance classic.
A Very Murray Christmas
Though not Bill Murray’s first holiday-centric feature (If you haven’t seen Scrooged, you’re missing out on so much campy goodness), this Netflix original is a lovable, though not family-friendly, comedy special boasting tons of star-studded cameos and familiar Christmas tunes, and was even nominated for two Emmys.
Like Die Hard, many people wouldn’t think of this as a Christmas movie, but surprisingly enough, it centers around the winter holiday. With mild scares and more than enough heart behind its outlandish plot, it’s a great flick for anyone who wants to watch a not-so-Christmas-y Christmas movie. And let's be honest—everybody in the 80s wanted a Mogwai for Christmas.
Radio City Christmas Spectacular
So you want to see the Rockettes, but can’t make it all the way up to New York City. Good thing Netflix has a filmed version! This 90-minute special is a recording of the Rockette's 2007 iteration of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, which has been around since 1933. It's the perfect way to experience a New York tradition from the comfort of your own home!
