The best Netflix movies for Christmas Day
It's the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas Day is here and after all the forced family interactions, present unwrapping, and holiday feasting, what is there to do? After the ceremonial festivities take place the kids usually wander off to experiment with their new toys, while the adults drink and calculate how much money they actually spent this holiday. One of the most traditional ways for families to pass the time on Christmas Day is watching a movie.
Watching a movie as a family means that you can spend time with everyone, and they all must be quiet. Perfect. Several new movies hit theaters every Christmas, and this year is no different. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released two weeks ago, but families will still flock to their local cinemas to watch the latest Star Wars drama unfold today. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Downsizing are also playing in theaters today, each with their own agendas. The former is a sequel/soft reboot to one of Robin William’s best movies, while the latter is a dramatic existentialist take on Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. If you, like me, have already seen Star Wars, and the other options just don’t seem to stir your Christmas spirit, there is an endless selection of Christmas movies on Netflix this year. Their catalog is a little dense to dig through last minute, and we all know that deciding on a movie can ultimately lead to the death of even watching a movie when no one can make a decision. I’ve got your back. From classic selections like The Legend of Frosty the Snowman and Disney’s Santa Clause to dark-comedy holiday hits like Gremlins and Bad Santa, here are the best movies Netflix has to offer on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
