My Holiday Movie Picks

Watching holiday films always puts me in the festive spirit. The lightheartedness romantic comedies that centre around Christmas are probably some of my favourite films because they bring joy to myself and others that watch them. This year I have made a list of my favourite holiday films that can be streamed with Netflix. In this list you will see a great mix of old and new holiday movies that I recommend you watch if you’re in the mood for a cozy and festive night in!


A Christmas Prince // A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding 

Last year I fell completely in-love with the Netflix original film, ‘A Christmas Prince’ so naturally when I heard a sequel was coming out I was beyond excited. After watching the second film, ‘A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding’ I knew it would be an addition to my favourite Christmas movie list. Although I do prefer the first to the sequel, it was really wonderful to see where and how the story continues.


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

Christmas comes early for an aspiring young journalist when she’s sent abroad to get the scoop on a dashing prince who’s poised to be king.


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

A year after helping Richard secure the crown, Amber returns to Aldovia to plan their wedding. But her simple taste clashes with royal protocol.

Love Actually 

If I had to pick my all time favourite Christmas movie, it would have to be Love Actually. The overall messages of love and kindness are what the holidays represent as a whole and this film really encompasses this and more.


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

This ensemble comedy is a charming treatise on romance telling ten intertwining London love stories, leading up to a climax on Christmas Eve.

Angel of Christmas

I watched this film last year and when browsing to find a good holiday film this year, I remembered how much I enjoyed it. It follows a classic holiday film plot and has endearing characters making it the perfect movie to watch while sipping on some hot chocolate.


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

While researching a family heirloom, a jilted news staffer uncovers the ornament’s magical past and meets someone special, perhaps not by coincidence.

The Holiday Calendar 

A 2018 Netflix original movie, ‘The Holiday Calendar’ lived up to all of my expectations for a good holiday film. Despite the magical elements featured, the film is quite relatable and honest. You can definitely find yourself enthralled with the protagonist and the life she leads.



Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

A talented photographer stuck in a dead-end job inherits an antique Advent calendar that may be predicting the future — and pointing her toward love.

A Princess Switch 

‘A Princess Switch’ is another new Netflix original film that came out this year and it has everything you can possibly want in a Christmas movie. Think of it as a royal, Christmas version of ‘The Parent Trap’ without the parents.


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

Stacy makes delicious confections. Her look-alike has royal connections. Swapping lives gives both a taste of what they’re missing.

Christmas Inheritance

This Netflix original film came out last year and after re-watching it this year, I remembered why I loved it! Although this story seems to be retold a thousand times, ‘Christmas Inheritance’ has made it new and exciting. I might even watch it again before Christmas!


Synopsis on Netflix Reads:

To inherit her father’s company, socialite Ellen must first visit his small hometown, where she learns the value of hard work and helping others.

Happy watching,
