30+ Christmas Movies To Watch This Holiday Season

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you choose to purchase through links I provide.

Gifts are bought, trees are trimmed. It seems like the holiday season starts earlier and earlier ever year! Now that your house is all decked out, the weather is a bit crummy, and you’re broke from all of the shopping; it is time stay in and watch holiday/Christmas movies.

With so many movies available, it can me hard to decide what to watch. I’ve done all of the hard work and rounded up over 30 of the best movies available. I even separated them into categories. Enjoy!

Not all of these movies can be streamed through Netflix, so I have included links for Netflix streaming and digital downloads through Amazon Prime Video.

Some of these are affiliate links. Should you make a purchase I will make a small commission. Don’t worry there is no added cost to you. 

Titles with a * can be streamed online through Netflix.
