My top 5 Christmas films on Netflix.

My girls and I have been watching a Christmas film every day for the last few weeks. Sometimes I've been watching two a day. One for my self and then one with the kids when Ellie got in from school.

Netflix on the TV

These are my top picks of Christmas films available from Netflix! Yes, they might be cheesy but they are so good! 

The Christmas Chronicles!

The Christmas Chronicles, a holiday adventure which tells the story of sister and brother, Kate and Teddy Pierce whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about. After staking out Santa’s arrival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly derail Christmas. As their wild night unfolds, Kate and Teddy work together with Santa as you've never seen him before and his loyal Elves to save Christmas before it's too late.

There is plenty of laughs for children and adults, there is a great story and Kurt Russle is the best Santa ever!! We watched the 2nd Christmas Chronicles which was released last month and in my opinion the 1st one was better but the kids did love it.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey!

A musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a wholly fresh and spirited family holiday event. Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter and a long-forgotten invention to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within. A Christmas Journey reminds us of the strength of family and the power of possibility.

This reminded me a lot of The Greatest Showman but a Christmas version. It's magical, colourful, heart warming, fun, exciting and original!

A Christmas Prince!

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.

Ahh! I loved this and saw it a couple of years ago. It's cheesy and predictable but that's what you want at this time of year. Since this film was released there's been a couple more, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding then the A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby!

Christmas on the Square!

Christmas On The Square follows small town "Scrooge" Regina Fuller as she's visited by a rhinestone bedazzled angel who guides her on a musical journey of redemption. Will this stingy property owner evict the entire town of Fullerville on Christmas Eve, or will her greed give way to the Christmas spirit? 

For the first 10 minutes of this film I thought wow! This may be the cheesiest thing I've ever seen with the singing and dancing but it was so lovely! I did find myself crying at some of it. Dolly Parton just made this film. I love it. I'll be watching it year after year.

The Princess Switch!

One week before Christmas, a duchess switches places with an ordinary woman from Chicago, who looks exactly like her, and they each fall in love with each other's beaus.

This is one of those cheesy Christmas films, you know exactly what's going to happen but there is something so lovely about it which makes it so easy to watch!

Princess Switch had the 2nd one released this year too and as much as I loved the 2nd, The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again the first one in my opinion was better! It was a shock to see Fatboy from Eastenders in it though.

Have you seen these before? What's your favourite?


  1. Ohhh I need some new movies to watch, I generally stick to Sky or Christmas 24. I spy Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch...I wish my girls would watch a movie with me but they always have something better to do :( x
    p.s. the only one of these I've watched is The Christmas Chronicles.

  2. I have got it on my watch list to watch Jingle Jangle, looks really good!

  3. Oh there are some on this list that I haven't seen yet! I love Christmas movies. We really enjoyed The Christmas Chronicles and the second one is just as good. x
