With Christmas under a month away, it’s time to start working on that festive spirit – and that means only one thing.
No, not listening to Mariah Carey on repeat: Christmas films!
Netflix have released what’s available to its users this season, and it’s a pretty great list of Christmas films and series that won’t just have you laughing and feeling festive, but will help to create that Christmassy-feel in your home.
There are some brand new offerings, including Kurt Russell’s star turn in The Christmas Chronicles, or a double-dose of Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch.
And of course, we can’t forget the follow-up to last year’s surprise hit – A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.
If you’re in the mood for a Christmas classic, Nativity! is now streaming, or you can even revisit some sitcom Christmas specials such as the Royle Family and Peep Show.
So, put on your jumpers, grab a mince pie, and take a look at Netflix’s festive offerings this Christmas…
