Christmas Movies On Netflix In 2017 That'll Get Into The Holiday Spirit


Almost immediately after Halloween wraps up, the official holiday season begins, and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than by marathoning some Christmas content? Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from, including these 47 Christmas movies on Netflix in 2017. Sadly, a few of the great Christmas movies that used to be on Netflix, including Love Actually, Christmas with the Kranks, and The Polar Express, no longer remain on the beloved streaming site. Still, Netflix has copious classic Christmas movies to choose from, and many that will become instant-classics after one viewing.

For many people, Netflix serves as an alternative to cable, which means you're probably missing the constant churning of Christmas movies featured on both the Hallmark Channel and Lifetime. Cheer up though, not just because of holiday cheer, but because Netflix actually has tons of those TV movies in its arsenal. In fact, if you make up a whole queue of them, you'll be totally set to lay on the couch and marathon feel-good Christmas movies all winter long. You don't need to leave the comfort of your bed in order to watch a Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie or holiday classic — how great is that?

Of course, not all of Netflix's Christmas selections are made-for-TV movies. There's a wide array of films and specials to choose from, so make sure to clear you schedule in order to be able to watch them all by Dec. 25.
