If you know me, you know that I am known for being Mrs. Christmas and watching allll the Christmas movies when Christmas nears. However, this will be my first blog post on my favorite Christmas movies on Netflix. Definitely the most fun post! Of course, to do so, I must watch allll the Christmas movies, right? I love to pretend I am snowed in, can’t get out, snuggle in and have Christmas treats while I settle in to watch all things Christmas (except Christmas horror movies). As always there are some amazing movies on Netflix!
Here we go!
The Christmas Chronicles
I actually was given the opportunity to watch this one early through a media connection for a sponsored post I was doing. A lot of movies don’t pull me all the way in. I might be working at the same time or have a phone in hand. Not with this one. This movie is a must see and will undoubtedly become a Christmas Classic!
The movie is about a brother and sister struggling after the loss of their Dad who set out to catch Santa on video yet end up stowing away on Santa’s sleigh. They seem to help Santa save Christmas but it is all a plan by Santa to get Teddy to believe once again not only in Christmas and Santa but believe in himself as well.
Since my first watch for my original post, I have probably seen this another 5-7 times because this has become a favorite for the kids who keep selecting it on Netflix. I am happy to watch it each and every time! If you only watch one family movie this season, make it THIS one!
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
If you don’t know about this movie, do you even watch movies or celebrate Christmas lol? This is a classic that kids and adults both enjoy. In this epic version, Jim Carrey plays the role of the Grinch. Having been an outcast since childhood, the Grinch is angry and set to ruin everyone’s Christmas. That is, of course, until Cindy Lou Who steals his heart.
The Holiday Calendar
New to Netflix this year, this one is similar to another movie where a grandmother mysteriously sends the granddaughter an advent calendar but everyone thinks it’s from an admirer. In this movie, Abby receives an Advent calendar from her grandfather and every gift is a clue. The clues are about what will happen each day with her boyfriend, job, etc.
The Princess Switch
Also new this year, Vanessa Hudgens stars in this cheesy tale about Stacy, a baker, who’s in Belgravia to participate in a baking contest and a princes’ fiance who switch places for two days.
A Christmas Prince
This was last year’s most popular and viral movie on Netflix and is already being watched numerous times by the kids in my house. This one is about a journalist who is assigned to the royal family for stories and falls in love with the prince.
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
This is, of course, the successor to A Christmas Prince. Last years edition went viral, while this is cute, I think The Christmas Chronicles will take the viral award this year. The tale is all about her love and whether she can handle being a Princess.
Christmas Wedding Planner
If you missed it last year, catch this tale about Kelsey, a wedding planner about to grow her business by planning her cousin’s opulent wedding. Connor, a private investigator shows up to investigate the groom. While investigating the groom, the two fall in love.
Christmas With a View
Another new one this year, nothing says Christmas like a ski resort. Am I right?! Clara, who manages the ski resorts restaurant, is less than happy that a celebrity chef is named the new head chef.
The Spirit of Christmas
This one has a totally cheesy plot about a haunted bed and breakfast but it will win you over. Kate needs to get this B& B appraised, and only has three weeks to do it and get it sold. Kate meets Daniel, the resident ghost who only returns each December for twelve days of Christmas.
Kayla is set to marry a self-centered choreographer and kisses a man in an elevator whom she ends up falling for.
This movie is considered a classic by many. This rom-com about eight couples whose lives intersect takes place in London at Christmas and stars Hugh Grant.
There you have it! The Netflix Christmas movies to watch this year! While some may be cheesy, they are cheesy in a good way or I would not recommend them. If there are any I missed, let me know in the comments!
