My Favorite Christmas Movies To Watch On Netflix

favoritechristmasmovies

I don’t know about everyone else but one of my favorite things to do during the holidays is watch Christmas movies. What’s better than being curled up on the couch with some hot coco and watching movies? I love that Netflix has a great selection of Christmas movies they stream. I compiled a list of some of my favorite movies to watch.

happychristmas

Happy Christmas: After splitting up with her boyfriend just before the holidays, a young woman tries to start over, but her self-destructive behavior gets in the way. First of all I love Anna Kendrick (any other fellow Pitch Perfect lovers out there) and second who hasn’t had a relationship end badly and your own craziness gets in the way?

Christmas With The Kranks: When the Kranks decide to skip Christmas, they become social outcasts from their Christmas obsessed neighbors.

 

12DatesofChristmas

12 Dates Of Christmas: Set up on a blind date on Christmas Eve, Kate gets 12 chances to relive the date over and over again until she sets things right.

christmasangel

Christmas Angel: While writing an assignment for school about Christmas wishes, Olivia begins to notice her wishes are coming true, she becomes convinced that they are miracles linked to a woman she thinks is an angel.

achristmascarol

A Christmas Carol: A greedy miser is given an otherworldly opportunity to redeem himself on Christmas Eve, when three spirits take him on a journey of revelation.

theheartofchristmas

The Heart of Christmas: Austin and Julie are devastated when they learn that their young son, Dax, has been diagnosed with cancer. They decide to give Dax one last Christmas.

nightmarebeforechristmas_

The Nightmare Before Christmas: Tired of scary humans every October 31 with the same old bag of tricks, Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Clause and plans to deliver shrunken heads and other ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning.

I have a lot of other Christmas movies that I love to watch that aren’t on Netflix as well. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie to watch? Let me know in the comments below!

    I love Christmas movies! I haven’t seen most of these, but I think Happy Christmas will be moving to the top of my list to see. My all-time favorite Christmas movie is The Muppet’s Christmas Carol, but I don’t think it’s on Netflix. My son has watched it about a million times since he discovered it. 🙂

  15. Sadly I don’t think a lot of my Christmas faves are on Netflix, “Jingle all the way” “the family stone etc. but last year my mom and I watched Christmas with the Kranks and it was delighful. I also watched Happy Christmas, it was a little dark in my opinion for a Christmas movie…maybe more realistic but not a horrible film at all it just didn’t get me in the spirit but great cast.

  18. I watched The Heart of Christmas on netflix the other day and was actually crying. It has been a long time since a movie has moved me so much.

    On a lighter note, Christmas with the Kranks is my favorite Christmas movie and I’m so happy it’s on Netflix now!
