Updated November 2019
Last December I came down with a bad dose of winter flu so I made the most of it by having a huge Netflix Christmas movie binge. Netflix has recently added several new titles for 2019 and I have made a start on those too.
Here are my recommended Netflix Christmas films from the last few years. They are all very light and usually cheesy. It seems that Christmas movies allow you to watch and enjoy things that you wouldn’t normally.
I love a Christmas film that can make you feel like a child again with all the magic that this time of year brings for the younger generation. A good old rom com always hits the spot too. Watching a Netflix Christmas movie is the perfect way to switch off from all the hustle and bustle of the holiday period.
I’m hoping you will all give me your suggestions too.
2019 Netflix Christmas Movies
Let it Snow
This is my favourite Netfix Christmas movie of 2019 so far. It’s a modern day romance with a predominantly teenage cast. Perfect feel good Christmas movie. Thumbs up for this one Netflix.
Holiday in the Wild
This new Netflix Christmas movie features an elephant sanctuary in Africa where orphaned elephants are rehabilitated and returned to the wild when they are ready.
The film itself isn’t mind-blowing but worth a watch just for the scenery, elephants and Rob Lowe! It also features the lovely Kristin Davis (Sex and the City) and Rob Lowe’s son John (Johnny) Lowe making his film debut.
Christmas Break In
This slapstick family drama is very much along the lines of Home Alone where a 9 year old gets stranded in school after her parents forget to collect her. Worth a watch if you need something suitable for the whole family.
I’m sure this high quality animation is going to be a huge hit. Created by the makers of Despicable Me.
2018 Christmas Movies on Netflix
The Christmas Chronicles
This 2018 Netflix addition, featuring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, was my favourite Christmas movie of 2018.
I think Kurt Russel has been the best Christmas movie Santa since Richard Attenborough in Miracle on 34th Street. A fabulous magical film for all ages.
The Princess Switch 2018
Two lookalikes (both played by Vanessa Hugdens of High School Musical) swap their roles as baker and princess in this family rom com set in Belgravia. An easy watch.
A Christmas Prince 2017/2018/2019
A bit of light watching where a journalist heads to Aldovia to report on the royal family and ends up falling in love with the prince. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding follows in 2018 and A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby in 2019
