December is here, and we’re ready to get in the spirit of the season; but sometimes, life’s many responsibilities stop you from feeling the Christmas cheer. Thankfully, Netflix is here to save the day. Crack open a bottle of wine, grab your favorite Christmas snack, and cozy up in your ugly Christmas sweater for some quality TV time. Here are some of the holiday movies on Netflix that you won’t want to miss.
1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Does this movie ever get old? No. The correct answer is no. Jim Carrey gives a memorable performance in a flick that will touch your heart and make you laugh until you cry — whether you’re a wee one or a grown adult.
2. Bad Santa
Starring Billy Bob Thornton (who surprised me with how hilarious he is), this one’s about a conman and his partner who plot to rob department stores on the eve of Christmas. As you can probably guess, things don’t go according to plans. Don’t let this movie fool you: it’s intended for a mature audience.
3. Happy Christmas
If cuffing season has you feeling down, you need to see this comedy-drama about a gal named Jenny (played by Anna Kendrick) who, after a break-up, moves in with her brother and his family — and shakes up their home life as a result.
4. A Christmas Prince
A reporter goes undercover for a story on a wild prince, and ends up in a messy situation when she falls in love. Scandal! Betrayal! Lies! Nah, just a really good Christmas movie.
5. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Alright, alright. We know this is largely a Halloween movie; but it’s still about Christmas! And honestly, who’s gotten sick of watching Jack Skellington try to bring Christmas to his home? Not this gal here.
