5 Christmas Movies On Netflix You Have To See

The days are getting shorter, colder and cosier, so we all know what that means… Christmas is just around the corner. We’ve already added “All I Want For Christmas” by Mariah Carey to our playlist and looked for a good recipe for some delicious Christmas cookies, but we’re also getting ready for our favorite holiday by watching all the Christmas movies on Netflix. Here’s our little guide.

1. Let It Snow

While we all wish for a ‘white’ Christmas, we have to admit that we hate the chaos that comes with snow, but it also was the inspiration for the brand-new movie Let It Snow. In a small town called Gracetown, a snowstorm brings together a group of high school students and sees their friendship and love life collide in unexpected ways. The movie is based on the same titled novel written by the bestselling authors John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, so we can already tell that this is going to be a very likeable movie.

2. Klaus

Klaus is Netflix’s first animated feature film and has a storyline that reminds us a little bit of the iconic Grinch. Jesper, a postal academy’s worst student, has been sent to a frozen island above the Article Circle and is about to give up. Lucky enough, he finds a friend in Alvia and the mysterious carpenter, who is specializes in handmade toys. Together, they bring a ray of hope and light in a cold, dark city and create what we all have come to know as Christmas. Sounds cute and heartwarming, right?

Cherry on top is that Swedish pop goddess Zara Larsson released the title song for the movie. We stan!

3. The Knight Before Christmas

One of the biggest hits on Netlix in December 2018 was Princess Switch, a Christmas rom-com with Vanessa Hudgens in the lead role. This year, Vanessa is once again part of one the most anticipated Christmas movies of the year and yet again, she’s portraying the main character. After a witch transports the medieval knight sir Cole to present-day Ohio, he befriends a young and fun teacher called Brooke (played by Hudgens). As they’re becoming better friends every day, their love for each other grows as well, but will their love conquer all the differences between them. Grab a hot tea, a blanket and put some candles on and find it out!

4. Holiday Rush

Many people believe that Christmas is all about the presents beneath the Christmas tree, but in fact, Christmas is about coming together and having a joyful and peaceful moment. That’s what Holiday Rush is focussing on, because their story has a great moral.

A popular radio DJ with a good pay loses his job on the same day his spoiled kids hand over their Christmas lists, which of course causes some serious drama. Since the family loses a big income, they must learn to downsize and embrace a simpler life. The movie shows in a fun way that Christmas is all about the joy that comes from who you’re with and not what you have. A life lesson that brings everyone closer to each other!

5. Holiday In The Wild

We have to admit that Holiday In The Wild isn’t the typical Christmas movie like the four we’ve mentioned previously, but once again we’re focussing on the message of the movie.

Kate Conrad, a stylish Manhattanite, departs on her second honeymoon to beautiful Africa, but there’s a little catch. She’s left alone and ends up staying all the way through the Christmas holiday, because she finds inspiration in the wildlife and a new purpose in her life. It’s clear that this movie doesn’t feature any snow or mistletoe, but that’s what’s making it stand out. It’s all about a woman finding herself in Africa, while everyone is at home celebrating Christmas. A cool story!
