Tune In the Netflix for Christmas classics you’ll want to cozy up under your favorite cozy blanket and brew up some delicious cup of coffee because below is an Unordered list of some of our selected best Christmas movies for you on Netflix:
Emma Roberts stars as a perpetually single woman who decides to team up with a handsome stranger to act as each other’s platonic plus-ones to various holiday events. They get along well, they’re good-looking, so. things get messy quickly. But that’s part of the fun.
Chaotic family comedies are Christmas-movie gold. In this ensemble film, starring Idris Elba, Chris Brown, and Regina King, the entire Whitfield family (and their various romantic interests) gathers for the first time in four years. Secrets are revealed, but through all the drama, they all realize there’s no place like home for the holidays.
Singers and World War II veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis team up with performing sisters Betty and Judy Haynes to spend Christmas putting up a holiday show in the small town of Pine Tree, Vermont. Upon arrival, they check into the deserted Columbia Inn, and are shocked to find that the owner of the struggling business is none other than Bob and Phil’s former beloved commanding general in the army, General Thomas G. Waverly. Wanting to cheer up their depressed and near-bankrupt General Waverly, the guys hope to put on a show that will both cheer up their former leader as well as draw people in to generate business. But it’s not all smooth sailing, folks! These movies got everything from fake engagements to “will they, won’t they” to show-stopping musical numbers. So yeah, it’s basically everything anyone could hope for in a Christmas movie.
Okay, nearly all of the four main characters are walking red flags, but that’s the kind of thing you just have to expect and accept when it comes to many a-classic Christmas movie. American movie trailer maker Amanda and British society columnist are both going through ruts and preparing to spend the holidays single and lonely, but suddenly find themselves engaging in a house swap that will last through Christmas and hopefully offer both a nice change of pace and scenery. Through the swap, the ladies encounter fellas Graham (Irish’s book editing brother) and Miles (a composer who works with Amanda’s ex), who, though kinda sus in the ways you’d expect for guys in a mid-2000s Christmas rom-com, still manage to make an impression on our female leads, opening the door for romances that have the potential to last long past the end of the holiday season.
In all of its extremely mid-2000s comedy-ness, this movie’s kind of hit or miss, but I am of the opinion that it is actually very good, made even better when you watch it during the Christmas season. A pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds stars as a formerly overweight high schooler who returns home for the holidays ten years later, reuniting with the high school crush (Amy Smart) who rejected him at their graduation party. Are there a lot of jokes that definitely would not fly today? Of course. Does Anna Faris also give a pitch-perfect performance as Reynolds’ character’s eccentric pop star girlfriend? She Sure Does. Sometimes that’s all you need.
It doesn’t get more quintessentially Christmas than Home Alone, the movie about Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Cukin), a kid who gets accidentally left behind when the rest of his family goes on vacation for the holidays. I personally think of this movie most fondly for its bumbling villains: two burglars, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, known as the Wet Bandits, who end up involved in a dangerous feud with Kevin.
Home Alone 2: Lost In New York
When you’re done watching Home Alone, why not check out its sequel? There’s a convincing argument to be made that Lost in New York, which finds Kevin (Culkin) getting separated from his family at the airport and ending up on a plane to New York City, is even better than the original.
Holiday In the Wild
After the very abrupt ending of her marriage, Kristin Davis decides to go on a solo trip to Africa (a voyage that was supposed to be a second honeymoon with her ex-husband.) She and her pilot/tour guide Derek (Rob Lowe) take a detour to rescue a baby elephant, and she finds herself drawn more and more to Derek’s rough-and-tumble life.
A heartwarming love story unfolds as heiress Ellen Langford is sent incognito to her father’s small hometown to deliver a traditional Christmas letter to his business partner. Make sure to grab someone you love and cuddle up for a story that will melt away all of your cynical tendencies, for a moment at least.

The App That Stole Christmas
A tech entrepreneur’s shopping app is taking the holiday by storm, but could it also be the cause of everyone losing their Christmas spirit?

Let It Snow
Based on the young adult novel by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson, the movie follows a group of high schoolers who are brought together when a snowstorm hits on Christmas Eve.
The Polar Express
Since computer animation has advanced so much in the years since the visual style of this movie is pretty outdated now, but at the time of its release, it was a huge deal that Tom Hanks, who plays the train conductor, did the motion capture for his character. The movie itself is still pretty sweet, following a young boy’s journey on a train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve
A Christmas Story
You could wait for the annual 24-hour TBS marathon of this classic on Christmas, or you could just stream it whenever you want. A Christmas Story is one of our culture’s most inescapable movies, centering on a young boy who wants nothing more than to be gifted a BB gun. Do you own one of those leg lamps? If you don’t, I’m sure you know someone who does.
Two sisters with a song-and-dance act become involved with two singers, both professionally and romantically, and the four set out to save an inn from going out of business. This is just a nice, wholesome musical if that’s your thing.
A Christmas Carol (1938)
If you’re really interested in the origins of A Christmas Carol, you can’t get much more classic than this. Reginal Owen plays Scrooge in this one.
Shazam, which follows a 14-year-old foster kid who gains the ability to transform into a superhero, can totally be read as a Christmas movie since it takes place during the holidays and is all about family and love, and togetherness. Well, it’s also about trying to defeat an evil scientist, but mostly the gushy stuff.
Klaus is so beautifully animated that you almost forget to pay attention to the story, which functions as a super sweet Santa Claus origin story: A lazy, underachieving postman (voiced by Jason Schwartzman) befriends a reclusive toymaker (voiced by J.K Simons), and the two set out to bring joy via handmade gifts to a dark, dreary town.
The Holiday Calendar
Abby, a struggling photographer with a dead-end day job, dreams of traveling the world, like her childhood friend Josh who has just returned home for the holidays. Abby’s grandfather gives her a special family advent calendar, which she at first ignores. But when the clock strikes December 1, the calendar reveals its magical powers to predict the future—and maybe a potential romance.
The Christmas Chronicles
Siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce think that it’ll be an awesome idea to catch Santa Claus on video on Christmas Eve (they even use tripwire, which seems kind of cruel to do to an old generous man but alright then). Their plans go awry as Santa tries to escape and they give chase, ending with accidental teleportation to Chicago where they all get stranded after the reindeer scatter and Santa loses track of his hat and sack of gifts. Now Santa’s in a tight spot, as if he fails to find and deliver all of the presents by Christmas morning, Christmas Spirit will be no more (and the kids of the world would be pretty dang peeved). It all comes down to the siblings who got him in this mess in the first place to ultimately get him out, and you’re sure to enjoy every moment of their combined efforts in this Netflix Original Christmas comedy.
What do a broke puppeteer, a paintball enthusiast, and a tango-dancing grandmother have in common? You’ll have to find out in this eclectic Christmas movie.
