53 Christmas TV Episodes On Netflix That Will Make Your Heart Grow Three Sizes With Holiday Cheer

It's always fun (for me, anyway) to see how a television show tells a story about something that many of us experience, like a holiday. Have you ever wanted to marathon Christmas episodes on Netflix and compare them? If so, you're in luck, because I have compiled a massive list that will keep you rolling in Christmas cheer for at least twelve days, depending on how often you pause to pour more cocoa.

The Christmas season means a lot of things to people, whether it's parties, charity, family, or finding a way to combat your seasonal depression with colorful lights. Television episodes during this time of year become super relatable in that respect, as our favorite characters often have to pause their adventures for a quick caroling or cookie baking session. They range from serious to silly, so your marathon is sure to have plenty of variety.

Some of my favorite Christmas episodes (from My So-Called Life, Community, and Happy Endings) aren't available on this particular streaming service. However, if you want to chill out with Netflix this holiday season, you have plenty of options. Here are a plethora of Christmas-themed episodes from over 20 shows that you can start marathoning ASAP. If I haven't listed your favorite show or Christmas episode below (my taste is unfortunately limited), you'll notice that most episodes happen around the same point in the season, and are therefore pretty easy to find on the 'flix.
