All the movies Netflix has planned for Christmas
The holiday season is among us, and with the holidays comes a long list of traditions. Halloween brings with it costume parties, trick or treating, and scary movies. Thanksgiving brings Black Friday elbows in the crowd & food comas. Christmas also brings more food & family get-togethers to explain your life choices and argue politics. However, one of the best traditions that come with Christmas is the holiday movies.
Everyone has their favorite Christmas movie. If you’re nostalgic, the pull for A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, or It’s a Wonderful Life probably rank near the top. If you’re someone who loves to debate (and maybe you just want to watch the world burn), then perhaps you make an argument that Die Hard is your favorite.
However, if rewatching some of your old favorites is not the route you & your family want to take, then finding some new Christmas movies on one of the dozens of streaming services may be for you. Here are the movies you can peruse on Netflix over the holiday season.
