When November rolls around, it suddenly becomes all things Christmas here in Canada. Decorations start being hung, Christmas chocolates start to fill the shelves, and it seems holiday displays are everywhere you look. But you may not be ready to go Christmas shopping yet. Don't worry, here's what to watch on Netflix Canada this weekend if you're still not in the holiday spirit.
And while it may not be a winter wonderland outside quite yet, thoughts of gift giving and Santa Claus is definitely on a lot of people's minds already. Christmas is fast approaching (in six weeks five days to be exact!) and that means it's about time to get in the holiday spirit.
So if you aren't already feeling festive, then get ready to cuddle up and get cozy with these Netflix picks this weekend. Nothing beats a good Christmas movie to really pull on your heartstrings, bring out that good ol' holiday spirit and have you feeling all jolly!
Released just last year, The Christmas Chronicles should be at the top of your festive movies to watch this year.
While it isn't a classic (yet) this one has everything you want in a Christmas movie. A great storyline, good acting, and Kurt Russell as Santa Claus of course.
Fans are calling it one of the best Christmas movies out there, since classics like A Christmas Story and The Santa Clause. Netflix has also signed off on The Christmas Chronicles 2, which is currently in production filming in Vancouver.
Christmas With The Kranks
While you have probably watched (and re-watched) it many times, Christmas With The Kranks is a total classic.
Personally, it's worth another watch every year during the holidays! Released back in 2004, it stars Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis as the Kranks who suddenly decide to skip Christmas one year.
Let It Snow
Based on the best-selling novel by the same name, Let it Snow is a brand new release on Netflix Canada that will give you all the festive feels.
When a town in Illinois that barley gets snow gets hit with flurries on Christmas Eve, the magic of the season brings people together like never before!
Let it Snow stars Liv Hewson from Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet, and Kiernan Shipka better known as Sabrina from Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Daddy's Home 2
When two co-parenting dads have their own Fathers visiting over Christmas time, it's a full house and things are bound to get real interesting!
Daddy's Home 2 will get you in the holiday spirit this weekend with lots of laughs, family drama and mishaps. Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson and John Lithgow — need I say more?
Holiday in the Wild
Starring Rob Lowe and Kristen Davis, this new Netflix release isn't your typical Christmas flick.
Set around Christmas time, Holiday in the Wild takes you on a trip to Africa this holiday season. After being dumped by her husband, Kate takes their planned trip solo and ends up extending her vacation to spend Christmas in Africa as well.
El Camino Christmas
Maybe watching feel-good Christmas movies just isn't your jam, or maybe you just simply want to ease into those holiday classics.
In that case, El Camino Christmas is the perfect choice to watch this weekend. With stars like Jessica Alba, Tim Allen, Dax Shepard and Luke Grimes, you won't want to miss this action-thriller Christmas movie.
