2. "A Christmas Prince"
One of Netflix's most popular developments, "A Christmas Prince" tells the story of a journalist tasked with writing an article about the royal family. She infiltrates the family while posing as a tutor and quickly develops chemistry with the soon-to-be-crowned prince.
3. "A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding"
Not to spoil the aforementioned title, but this title continues the story of the two main characters and their struggles with handling both the media and their upcoming wedding.
4. "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker"
If you're looking for a classic or are just thoroughly intrigued with ballet, this production is for you. Featuring the New York City Ballet, you're guaranteed to view some amazing dancing while being put in the Christmas Spirit
5. "A Holiday Engagement"
Not wanting to tell her family about her recent breakup, the main character hires an actor to play her fiance. Imagine the "Wedding Date" but Christmas.
6. "The Princess Switch"
Starring everyone's favorite East High alum, Vanessa Hudgens, "The Princess Switch" is essentially the "Parent Trap" but Christmas themed and involves the Royal Family rather than a divorced couple.
7. "White Christmas"
A 1954 classic which is honestly just a must-watch come December.
8. "Love Actually"
Similar to the setup of "New Year's Eve" and "Valentine's Day," this movie is the perfect romantic comedy to both cry over and get you in the Christmas Spirit.
9. "The Holiday Calendar"
One of Netflix's newest additions, the "Holiday Calendar" tells the story of a photographer gifted a magical Advent calendar that brings new love into her life.
10. "Bad Santa"
If you're not a fan of the usual family-oriented or rom-com Christmas movies, "Bad Santa" is the perfect comedy for you.
