Best Christmas Movies on Netflix:
Editor’s note: We’ll update this list as new Christmas movies are added and older ones leave Netflix.
One of the biggest Netflix original films of 2018 was this Christmas movie, starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus himself. However, due to the actions of two children, Santa finds himself stuck in Chicago on Christmas Eve, and there is a race against time to get him back with his sledge and reindeer. If you don’t complete your annual gift before the end of Christmas Eve, the world will lose that great Christmas spirit.
Russell’s portrayal of Santa as a modern-day grandfather is perfect for him, and the movie itself is fun to watch with his family and friends. You can also watch the sequel, The Christmas Chronicles 2, on Netflix now.
This 2019 Netflix original was nominated for Best Animated Film of the Year at the Academy Awards. This movie is basically the origin story of Santa Claus. A postman living in the far north of the world contacts Klaus, a humble playmaker. Together they began sending toys to local children and soon Klaus began to become the Santa Claus we all know and love.

Join in the song with guests like Miley Cyrus, Chris Rock, George Clooney, and more.

You can’t beat this 1954 Christmas classic. Bing Crosby and Danny Kay play two ex-WWII soldiers trying to help their former commander save his inn during the holiday season. It’s not a great plot, but you watch this movie for the musical numbers, especially the title track.
