It’s late December. You’re probably either already back home or preparing to travel home for the holidays. Flying or driving back to your hometown to catch up with friends and family is a staple of the season, but after spending a few days cooped up in your parents’ house, there’s a nonzero chance that you’ll begin to lose you mind. Thankfully, that’s why we have Netflix—to temporarily halt the endless conversations.
Netflix is packed with great original series, licensed movies and stand up comedy specials, but today we’re going to focus on the best holiday content that the streaming platform has to offer. And as it turns out, Netflix enough holiday-themed movies and TV shows to keep your family entertained all weekend.
Here are ten of the best holiday movies we could find streaming on Netflix:
- A Very Murray Christmas
- Just Friends
- The Legend of Frosty the Snowman
- Love Actually
- Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas
- Miracle on 34th Street
- The Santa Clause
- Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
- White Christmas
Sadly, some of the best Christmas movies of all time aren’t available to stream on Netflix, such as Die Hard and Home Alone, but this collection of alternately kid-friendly and adult-oriented programming should keep your family occupied for the next few days. There are plenty of other “Holiday Favorites” on Netflix, but these are our personal favorites. That said, if you need to entertain a bunch of small children over the holidays, I would highly recommend clicking that link and finding a few more cartoons.
