Who doesn't love great Christmas movies to get into the holiday spirit? Admittedly, few are even remotely realistic but there is still something charming about those twinkly lights, choirs singing and all that festive cheer that just puts a smile on your face.
From the classics such as It's A Wonderful Life to the more modern comedies like Bad Santa, there is a Christmas movie for everybody. Heck, even Die Hard is a Christmas film…or is it? The debate rages on.
With streaming services taking over the world we are literally spoiled for choice when it comes to the movies that make us all warm and fuzzy.
If Hallmark is your thing, you can subscribe via Amazon Prime (outside of the US) and fill your boots with endless tales of holiday romance and wishes coming through.
However, if prefer some Christmas comedies with a twist then Netflix has a great selection. In fact, they've proved so popular that they now release brand new Christmas movies every year.
But if, even after all that choice, you still don't know what to watch this holiday season, then try one of our picks from below.
We've tried and tested each and every one of them and would happily watch them all again.
So get that eggnog or mulled wine out, grab that cosy blanket and settle in for an evening of Christmas fun.
GREAT CHRISTMAS MOVIES
Can You Watch Hallmark Christmas Movies On Youtube?
Not everybody has access to the Hallmark Channel. And given that they pump out brand new Christmas movies every weekend from October, a lot of us would like to know if you can watch them on Youtube?
The answer to that is yes and no. Yes, you can watch Hallmark Christmas movies on Youtube but they don't come from the official Hallmark Channel.
Often they are recorded from the tv and uploaded by other YouTubers. I'm not sure how they have managed to stay online, but they are definitely there.
Suprisingly the quality is very good. I've checked them out and while they aren't perfect, they are definitely watchable.
Your choice is limited so if you want full access to the range of films, you will have to subscribe to the channel.
You can do that through Amazon Prime and it costs about £5/$5 per month.
