There is something about cuddling up on the couch, holiday drink in hand, and binging amazing Christmas movies on Netflix. While the weather outside might be frightful, you can still enjoy some time inside, relaxing in front of your television. Since the holiday season is here, Netflix has unloaded a few great options when it comes to Christmas specials you can watch. Take a look at some of our favorite options we think are the best Christmas movies on Netflix this holiday season.
A Castle for Christmas
A Christmas romance that follows a successful romance novelist who is at a crossroads after she kills off the main character in her book. She decides to head to Scotland for a little soul searching and to take a break when she discovers a castle that is somehow connected to her deceased father. While there she meets the current owner, who is a little grumpy, and you are thrown into a classic enemies-to-lovers movie. The movie stars Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes and is getting great reviews.
The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star – The Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Right Now
If you know anything, The Princess Switch on Netflix is now a holiday classic. Netflix gave us yet another holiday gift with a third installment of the series that features Vanessa Hudgens. This movie features the no-good cousin and involves a heist, because who doesn’t love a good Christmas heist. This movie is great to watch but if you also like looking at your phone, you won’t miss too much, we promise.
A Boy Called Christmas
This magical fairy tale offers adventure, wonder, and whimsy. It features a traditional story line of an unwanted babysitter and older relatives telling stories to younger children but there are some darker moments that will remind you of the good old Dickensian stories. The film does deal with a death of a mother, so if you want to avoid that then this movie might not be for you.
Love Hard – The Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Right Now
Nina Dobrev and Jimmy O. Yang star in this rom com that is modern age and centers around the disaster of dating online. Dobrev’s character believes she has found mister right and after coming to his house, finds out that she has been catfished. This movie has all the goofy rom-com tropes but will bring the laughs and feel-good moments that everyone craves during the holidays.
The Claus Family
This family film involves fairy tales and a little drama that circles around a boy who hates Christmas since the death of his father. He soon discovers that his grandfather is Santa and needs his help to turn Christmas around. The story focuses on the funny parts of Christmas but also how the main character deals with grief. Be warned that this movie is also in Dutch, so subtitled might be needed when watching it since Netflix hasn’t finished dubbing it in all languages yet.
Holidate – The Best Christmas Movies on Netflix Right Now
Last year’s Netflix rom com featured Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey as lonely singles that decided to be each-other plus ones to holiday events for a year. They agree to keep it a simple, platonic relationship, but guess what, that doesn’t happen. Now the pair must navigate the messy relationship they got themselves into right before Christmas hits.
The Christmas Chronicles
The Christmas Chronicles is hands down a great movie to watch during the holidays on Netflix. It features Kurt Russell as Santa who helps a pair of siblings rediscover the magic on Christmas. The movie has all the classic Christmas cheer you want and there is even a sequel.
A Christmas Prince
We promise this is the last rom com for the list. A Christmas Prince is your classic Hallmark movie, only on Netflix. The movie follows an American journalist who travels to Aldovia and catches the attention of Prince Richard. The movie did so well when it was released in 2017, Netflix made two more to go with it that did equally as well.
Netflix is filled with classic and fun Christmas movies that you can sit down and enjoy alone or with that special someone. We promise that there is a little bit of something for everyone on their Christmas selection and for all you know, you could be binging all three of The Prince Switch movies before you know it.
