The best Christmas movies on Netflix to watch year-round
Ho, ho, ho! Wait, it’s not that time of year. It’s only May and it seems like 2020 has been stretching for decades – it’s nowhere near the festive season, unfortunately. With COVID-19 on everyone’s minds, we thought it best to bring some holiday cheer very early this year.
Whether you celebrate or not, Christmas season is obviously the best time of year. Everyone is jolly & bright (except your one dolorous nephew on vacay from his sophomore year at Anonymous U.). And while it may not be Christmas yet, that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the festive spirit right now.
We’ve decided to bring you some extra special Christmas movies on Netflix to be enjoyed all year ‘round. Let us know in the comments which festive movies you enjoy throughout the year.
Nothing beats a festive animation to be enjoyed by the whole family. Klaus brings the magic of Christmas to our screens regardless of the time of year. Yes, we’re talking about you, Summer!
A simple act of kindness always sparks another – even in a faraway frozen place. When Smeerensburg’s new postman Jesper befriends toymaker Klaus, their gifts melt an age-old feud and deliver a sleigh full of holiday traditions. Snuggle up and give Klaus a watch with your family for some jolly cheer.
The Christmas Chronicles (2018)
Another instant classic loved by the whole family, Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles features Kurt Russell bringing Santa to life in an epic way. Russell playing holiday icon Santa is a welcome surprise.
The Christmas Chronicles follows siblings Kate & Teddy Pierce, whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera turns into an unexpected journey most kids could only dream about.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Jim Carrey has played many iconic roles, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas doesn’t disappoint. Even with summer on the horizon, the Grinch is a character that’s always remained a mood, no matter the time of year.
On the outskirts of Whoville lives a green, revenge-seeking Grinch who plans to ruin Christmas for all of the citizens of the town. The whole family will enjoy Dr. Seuss’s magical, heartfelt tale brought to life with an outstanding cast.
Let it Snow (2019)
Maybe you’ve binged The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina during quarantine and you’re left wanting more from Kiernan Shipka. Don’t fret, Let it Snow brings more Shipka to our screens. With a compelling cast, romance, and laughter, you can’t go wrong.
Let it Snow begins with a snowstorm hitting a small midwestern town on Christmas Eve, bringing together a group of high school students. They soon find their friendships and love lives colliding, and Christmas morning nothing will be the same.
A Very Murray Christmas (2015)
Every festive season needs a dash of Bill Murray. This star-studded cast is sure to bring some laughter during these coming months. Its simplicity and juvenile tone will surely break down those isolation blues.
Bill Murray worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snowstorm in New York City. Little does he know . . . he has A Very Murray Christmas in store.
Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you’re doing to bring some cheer during isolation.
