Whether you’re prepping for the holiday season or you’re the type to celebrate Christmas, Netflix has everything you need to create a Christmas movie marathon—just grab a frozen hot chocolate and a couple of Christmas cookies and celebrate!
Here are the top 10 Netflix Christmas Movies
10- The Christmas Chronicles.
A Netflix Original Film from 2018, this live-action, the 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—and rumor has it that there’s going to be a sequel in 2020, just in time for Christmas.
9- The Princess Switch.
Vanessa Hudgens stars as a pair of doppelgangers, Parent Trap–style, in this sweet holiday movie that combines mistaken identity, baking, royal romance, and more. If you’ve already watched every Hallmark Christmas movie available, this is the next best thing.
8- A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby.
The third romantic holiday film in the Christmas Prince series, this 2019 release follows the married (and expecting) Queen Amber and King Richard ahead of the Christmas-time birth of their child.
A diplomatic crisis (and a mystery) disrupts the happy time, but this Christmas movie on Netflix is still the heart-warming, goofy, charming watch everyone wants during the holiday season (or when they’re celebrating Christmas in July).
7- A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.
A follow-up to 2017’s A Christmas Prince, this Hallmark-Esque Christmas movie follows Amber and Prince Richard as they reunite for their winter wedding.
Wedding-planning mishaps and cultural clashes set the tone for the movie, though it all comes together for a happy ending
eventually—and we’d expect no less from a cheesy romantic Christmas movie.
6- A Christmas Prince.
As Netflix’s first foray into the Christmas rom-com world, this sweet, goofy movie set a trend that the streaming service is continuing to follow, with a sequel produced the following year and a third movie released in 2019.
The movie itself is reminiscent of Hallmark or Lifetime Christmas romantic comedies—a budding journalist sneaks into the castle to get the scoop for an article on a dashing, playboy prince. Romance ensues, of course.
5- The Holiday Calendar.
Yet another of Netflix’s sappy romantic Christmas movies, this one follows an aspiring photographer stuck in her small town in a dead-end job.
An antique Advent calendar passed down from her grandmother arrives just in time to point her toward love—and a more fulfilling career.
4- A Very Murray Christmas.
Bill Murray brings some famous faces—George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, and Maya Rudolph, to name a few—together in this musical comedy special.
You’ll enjoy seeing your favourite stars sing Christmas classics like “Let It, Snow, Let It, Snow, Let It Snow” and “Silent Night.”
3- Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.
Packed with big names and featuring songs by John Legend, this beautiful, playful Christmas movie follows a young girl on a mission to help her toymaking grandfather recover his greatest creation.
The songs (and dance numbers) will play over and over in your head, and adults and kids alike will love the heartfelt story. For a joyful Christmas movie that feels fresh and creative, look no further.
2- Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square.
Who doesn’t love Dolly Parton? This super-schmaltzy Christmas musical features the country legend as an angel who’s trying to get the town Scrooge (played by Christine Baranski) to have a heart.
1- The Knight Before Christmas.
This addition to Netflix’s growing collection of romantic Christmas movies (competing with the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas programming) tells the story of a medieval knight magically transported to modern-day Ohio,
where a disillusioned teacher is preparing for a loveless holiday season. Predictably, PG-rated romantic antics ensue, but that doesn’t make this cheesy flick any less worthy of a watch.
