These Netflix Christmas TV Specials Are Guaranteed To Bring You Holiday Cheer
Once again, the holiday season is upon us, but while the weather outside turns frightful, Netflix's streaming selection will prove to be so darn delightful that you'll never want to leave the comfort of your own couch. (Unless you simply need to refill your hot cup of cocoa.) But since it can be hard to keep track of all the yule tide entertainment out there, a list of every Christmas TV special coming to Netflix this season is a must for dedicated holiday lovers everywhere. After all, what better way is there to put yourself in the festive mood?
Sure, Netflix movies may get a lot of the attention these days, thanks to last year's release of the widely popular A Christmas Prince — which is a definite must-see for all those who haven't had the pleasure just yet— but the streamer hasn't forgotten about the TV fans in the audience.
Not to be outdone, special TV episodes will also be taking center stage this winter that'll prove to be just as fun to watch as anything currently streaming. So grab your coziest blanket, a mug of eggnog, and check out Netflix's brand new, must-see holiday titles. There's a reason it's called the most wonderful time of the year, after all.
