Look no further, because we've rounded up the best of Netflix's Christmas-themed movies. Whether you're looking for nostalgia, animation, or something slightly spooky, take a look at what Netflix has to offer!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Once upon a time, Tim Burton created Jack Skellington, and a holiday hero was born. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a great film, because you get to watch it twice a year: once on Halloween and once on Christmas!
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
No one does Christmas quite like Clark Griswold, and nothing says "holidays" quite like a viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Learn from Clark's mistakes; make sure your family brings its own trailer to sleep in.
Jingle All the Way
