Christmas will be here in less than 2 weeks! If you haven’t started decorating or preparing already, you’re a little behind. However, it’s never too late to get into the spirit with the best Christmas movies on Netflix. You can watch them any time on so many different devices! Just make sure that your child is watching age-appropriate content when they’re using Netflix without you. In addition to movies you can find on streaming services, there are plenty of other festive films you can watch with your children this season.

Anything By Rankin Bass

Everyone loves Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a universal favorite.

Growing up, Christmas just wasn’t the same without at least one Rankin Bass movie. My personal favorites are Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and The Year Without a Santa Claus. And the greatest thing about them is that they’re fun to watch, for all ages. Even though these Rankin Bass specials aren’t among the best Christmas movies on Netflix, you can easily find them playing on TV.

Mickey’s A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is a classic tale, but kids definitely enjoy it more with their favorite Disney characters. This film stars Scrooge McDuck, along with other fan favorites like Mickey, Goofy, and Jiminy Cricket. It’s a cute, short Christmas special that the whole family can enjoy together.

Home Alone

In my opinion, Home Alone is the ultimate family movie. And there’s no better time to watch it than around the holidays. In fact, it’s the highest grossing Christmas movie in history! While it has many hilarious and entertaining moments, it’s also a heartfelt film about the importance of family.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Another Disney film, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a fun, unique film that’s best for older children. It features stop-motion animation and catchy songs that make it impossible not to sing along. Best of all, this is one of the best Christmas movies on Netflix, so you can watch it with your kids whenever you want.
