6 Christmas Movies to Stream on Netflix
There's nothing better than a good Christmas flick to put you in the holiday spirit. Whether you're sitting in the den with the family drinking eggnog and watching a classic 60s special or playing a holiday-themed rom com in the background while you decorate the tree, there is a movie out there for every taste if you know where to find it. With its wide variety of titles, Netflix is the perfect place to look. The streaming service's offerings range from comedy specials and Hallmark productions to family cartoons and time-tested classics, adding new movies to its Christmas slate throughout the year. Here's a couple of options to get you started!
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
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!
