One of the greatest joys of Christmas is getting totally stuffed, collapsing into a settee and doing absolutely nothing. And the perfect accompaniment to doing nothing is leisurely watching a classic festive film. To make it even easier to see your favourite Christmas movies this year, Netflix are bringing some of the best-loved Yuletide films to their streaming service.
There’s one film in particular that is guaranteed to excite many rom-com fans: Love Actually. That’s right, the 2003 cult film (which inspired a sequel for Red Nose Day earlier this year) is coming to Netflix. But thankfully you don’t have to watch it on a constant loop (even if you want to) because there’s some other great movies like Miracle on 34th Street and Krampus that will be available from next month.
So here’s a list of the new Christmas movies coming to Netflix this December:
Miracle on 34th Street
A Christmas Prince
You Can’t Fight Christmas
El Camino Christmas
This dark comedy Netflix original, which hasn’t been released yet, is about a young man who accidentally ends up barricaded in a liquor store with five other people on Christmas Eve. The cast includes Jessica Alba, Tim Allen and Dax Shepard.
And while you’re here, these are some of the best Christmas films that are already available on the streaming service in case you want to get into the festive spirit early:
Jingle All the Way
Deck the Halls
The Night Before
