Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Santa Clause, The Nightmare Before Christmas, the list of classic Christmas movies goes on and on. When this time of year rolls around, everyone has their classic favourites that they love to watch, but what about Christmas movies on Netflix Canada that you might not have seen yet?
There's only so many times you can watch a classic before it gets old, or you can recite every line word for word, so this year, why not put your usual traditions aside and test out some new holiday movies while you wait for the big man in red to arrive?
While Netflix may have skipped out on adding a lot of traditional movies to their lineup this year, they sure did load up their platform with original holiday movies, as well as other great Christmas movies that you might not have even heard of before.
Christmas Eve is only a week away, so when you're not doing your last minute shopping and wrapping presents, make sure to reserve a little bit of time to relax with some cookies and hot chocolate while you get into the holiday spirit with a Christmas movie (or three).
