There’s nothing more important than sharing Christmas together, and there’s no better way to spend it than watching some new family Christmas films to add to the classics! Here are some of the best Christmas films on Netflix!

The Grinch (2018)

While the classic Jim Carrey version isn’t to every kid’s taste (that make up can be scary!), the animated remake is a much fluffier take on the story! Dr Seuss’ least festive character finds his Christmas spirit when he comes down from his mountain to spend a little time in Whoville. The slapstick comedy will have the kids laughing out loud.

Christmas Break-In (2018)

Ever been a few minutes late picking the kids up? This Home Alone inspired film sees nine year old Izzy stuck at school after hours while her parents battle through a blizzard to reach her. Stuck in the school, Izzy is forced to take on a couple of robbers trying to get in.

With lots of pranks, the kids will be creased, and you’ll get that nostalgic feeling of when you enjoyed films like Home Alone as a kid!

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Story (2020)

Who doesn’t love storytime? The singalong with original music from John Legend and Usher is an instant classic, as it tells us the tale of a grumpy toymaker who finds his Christmas spirit and tries to save his job with the help of his granddaughter.

The feel-good film with its catchy tune is one the kids will probably be putting on repeat!

The Christmas Chronicles (2018)

It’s Santa like you’ve never seen him before!

Every kid has the dream of meeting Santa, and Kate’s belief is still strong. Kate and her brother Teddy hatch a plan to catch Santa in the act as he delivers his presents, but get a lot more than they bargained for when they startle him and he crashes his sleigh.

The three race against time to get the sleigh up and running – will they make it for Christmas morning?

Arthur Christmas (2011)

Arthur Christmas is the ultimate family film as it’s told from the perspective of Santa’s clumsy son, Arthur!

The military operation of Christmas has a failure when a present doesn’t make it to its destination, putting a kid’s Christmas spirit in jeopardy. Arthur enlists the help of his grandfather and Santa’s dad, Saint Nick, to get the present home in time for Christmas morning – but the job just isn’t as simple as it seems.
