There’s lots to watch on television through the Christmas season, but if you ditched the cable, there’s still lots to see! Netflix has some fantastic holiday programming to get you through movie nights, and gingerbread house decorating that comes with the holidays. Here are a few of our top choices when you’re searching for something to watch on Netflix, for Christmas.
Elf | A classic. Even at the age of four this was one of Olivia’s favorite movies and now, she thinks it’s even funnier. Always a holiday movie that makes me smile, I like that we can sit down and watch it as a family.
Rise of the Guardians |The tooth fairy, Jack Frost and more, there’s lots going on in this kids movie that celebrates believing. You wouldn’t believe me even if I told you, the amount of time that we’ve played ‘baby tooth’ because of this movie. If you have children that love being imaginative, this is one of my favorite movies to grow the imagination. It’s perfect for Christmas (or any holiday really!).
The Legend of Frosty the Snowman | A new take on a classic, the kids love it and they enjoy comparing it to the original Frosty the Snowman stories that we’ve spent time reading together
The Search for Santa Paws | What’s better than cute puppies combined with Christmas? Not much. There are actually three or four dog and Christmas movies to choose from when you’re trying to look for a holiday movie (dog loving toddlers unite!).
How the Grinch Stole Christmas | The movie version is one of our favorites. The bright colors and fun style keep the kids attention,
Finding a favorite to watch through the holidays can be a great way to spend those evenings at-home. While we’re doing our twelve days of Christmas activities, you can often find the movies on in the background. If you’re looking for something – the holiday movies on Netflix are nicely grouped into a ‘holiday’ section.
