Christmas Films To Watch On Netflix

Updated: Dec 24, 2020

Christmas films are for everyone and there are so many old and new ones to binge this festive break. Netflix has so many to watch from the classic, timeless ones to the newer ones with a twist, keeping you busy and thoroughly entertained throughout the month.


We wanted to share the ones we will be watching at least once!


How the Grinch Stole Christmas



Ok, so the Grinch is our personal favourite Christmas film and this will never live up to the original in our eyes but it is still so so good and it's animated so it's basically a different film altogether. Fall in love with the green creature again and again (no? just us then) as we embark on this wonderful adaptation of The Grinch.


White Christmas



A classic musical film released in 1954, you can now stream on Netflix. It's all singing and dancing and it's definitely a film you can put on with parents or grandparents on a cold afternoon with your festive nibbles.


The Christmas Chronicles: Part One and Two



A Christmas comedy, exclusive to Netflix. Where Santas has been busted and he needs a helping hand from the children that found him along with his malfunctioned sleigh. Another film about saving Christmas but a not so straightforward mission.


Nativity 1, 2 & 3



This is a great film based on the production of the Nativity play at a primary school. It's full of laughs, with a ridiculous unrealistic incentive in the form of the competition prize in each film that keeps them going each year. Featuring the adorably enthusiastic Mr Poppy and a star-studded cast.


Klaus



Klaus tells the story of how Christmas traditions may have come about and how Christmas became the phenomenon it is today. A film that makes you think about acts of kindness by showing how "A true selfless act always sparks another" which is a lovely message to be shared.


Holidate



The latest festive film Netflix has to offer. Even when you're happily single, holiday dates such as Christmas, NYE, Valentines (obvs), etc. are still massively targeted at couples so when these two meet in a shopping mall they decide to become each other's dates strictly for holidays only, so that they can get the best of both without the nag. We wonder how many people now have this arrangement since seeing the film.


Arthur Christmas



Santas clumsy son Arthur sets out on a mission to deliver a gift before its too late after a glitch in the system leaves one girl presentless. His desire to fulfil every child wishes rivals his perfect brother who is next in line for the role of Santa. It is a joyful and fun animation to watch especially if you have little ones.


The Holiday



Almost on par with Love Actually, if that's even possible. The Holiday is the story of two women who swap lives over the Christmas break to live very drastically different from their own. Both end up finding love in this romantic comedy starring big names, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black and Jude Law.


Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey



Another 2020 release worth watching. In the film, the toymaker Jeronicus Jangle is about to change his families lives forever when his apprentice betrays him. Decades later, his granddaughter shows up on his door giving him a new lease of life and the imaginary world is brought to life.
