There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with some popcorn, hot chocolate, and a Christmas flick. Cue up Netflix with our picks for the must-watch movies of the season!
Year after year, the jokes just don’t get old. Watch this one with your friends—you’ll be quoting it to each other all through the holiday break!
Miracle On 34th Street
There are a slew of holiday movies about believing in Santa Claus, but Miracle On 34th Street is one of the few that isn’t totally cheesy. If you’ve never seen this 1940s movie about a young girl convincing her mom (who runs the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade) that Santa is real, make it a yearly tradition—starting now!
A Christmas Story
Thanks to TBS airing A Christmas Story for 24 hours every year, practically everyone with a TV has seen this movie. So many people love the story of Ralphie wanting a B.B. gun for Christmas that the movie was recently turned into a Broadway musical!
Nine intersecting love stories make Love Actually the best Christmas rom-com ever—Hugh Grant movies are always a win! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and will feel all warm and fuzzy inside when you’re done watching. When pushy holiday shoppers and ba-humbug people start getting to you, it’s good to remember that “love, actually, is all around us.”
