Klaus is Netflix’s Christmas gift to the world. Directed by Sergio Pablos, Klaus‘ plot is as cute, as it is Christmas-y. After proving himself to be the worst postman at the academy, a postman is posted to a frozen town in the North where he discovers Santa Claus is hiding out.

Home Alone


We all knew this movie was going to be part of the list. Home Alone is a film that arguably started the trend off, and got the cinematic Christmas snowball rolling. Sit down on the couch with family and friends, select Home Alone, and a merry Christmas is guaranteed.


Die Hard


Don’t try to say this isn’t a Christmas film, because that argument has been lost. The world has accepted Die Hard as one of the best Christmas films to watch, even though it was only set during Christmas and originally released in the month of July. There’s no film that will deliver this level of thrills, and bad-assery during Christmas.


How The Grinch Stole Christmas


If you needed a monster flick, but a relatable one that isn’t as destructive as Godzilla and its the holiday theme, the Grinch is the answer. Jim Carrey’s portrayal of the famous, green monster has been etched into cinematic history, and is one of our favourite films to watch during the holidays.
