Here’s a list of the best Christmas flicks on Netflix right now. It’s that time of the year again where our viewing pleasures turn red and green as the twenty-fifth fast approaches. And although there are plenty of festive things happening around the city, sometimes it’s nice to just get comfy at home and watch a Christmas-themed movie or series. This year, Netflix really has delivered in that department—from new romantic comedies to nostalgic classics, and even one for the horror-lovers. So get comfy on the couch, kick your feet, pour a sneaky bev, and enjoy the most wine-derful time of the year.


1. Single All The Way

Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about him being single on Christmas (again), Peter convinces his best friend Nick to come home with him for the holidays and pretend that they’re dating now. But when Peter’s mother sets him up on a blind date with her handsome trainer, things get complicated. This adorable friends-to-lovers romantic comedy is a brand-new heartwarming, feel-good movie that also just so happens to have Jennifer Coolidge (Stifler’s mum) starring in it, which is an easy sell on its own.

2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas

As a millennial, this movie brings a bundle of nostalgia to me, and I don’t think that will ever change. A classic in its own right, The Grinch That Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey brings the fictional of town Whoville and our favourite green grump to life in this magical, family-friendly flick.

3. Elves

When a family goes on Christmas vacation to a secluded island, they get more than what they bargained for when they discover the island’s ancient secret that stalks the woods. I mean, a Danish horror series about mythical forest elves is enough to intrigue. There are six episodes and they only go for twenty minutes each, so you can smash this series out in a single night. Trigger warning: Elves can be gory in parts.


4. Last Christmas

Starring Emilia Clark and Emma Thompson, this British romantic comedy centres on a cynical elf that meets an angel, which is duh, a Christmas miracle. Anyway, if you want something super light but also an interesting premise, Last Christmas is where it’s at.


5. El Camino Christmas

If you want to laugh until it hurts, this 2017 film will do just finely. Starring Jessica Alba and Tim Allen, this flick follows a drifter, a drunk, a deputy, a reporter, and a single mum as they experience an unexpectedly wild Christmas.
