By mid-November, I think it is 100% socially acceptable to get into the holiday spirit: listen to those classic and pop Christmas playlists, bust out the snowman socks, hang the lights, and yes, put up the tree. That also means queuing up the cheesiest (but the most heart-warming) holiday-themed movies flooding our streaming services.
Whether you're looking for feel-good movies to fill your soul, content to laugh at with your friends over Netflix Party, or just something to watch while decorating your house, you'll find it all here!
Get those baked goods, popcorn, and a mug of steamy goodness all ready to go - after all your hard work, it's time to relax!
1. "The Holidate"
Emma Roberts stars in this rom-com about two strangers deciding to be each other's dates to every holiday for the following year - but only platonically, of course. Do I need to tell you if that promise holds up? Of course not - the movie will!
2. "Holiday Rush"
In this sentimental movie, a caring single father needs to break it to his four children that their life is about to be very different now and they may not have everything that they did before. Will their family still find happiness and warmth this holiday season? Heck yeah!
3. "Operation Christmas Drop"
Kat Graham stars in another Christmas film, this time as a political aide sent to shut down a remote island sending Christmas gifts to families using military equipment. However, she finds there's more than what meets the eye - and heart. Watch for a fun, tropical Christmas setting and endless cheesy romance.
4. "Dash and Lily"
In this eight-episode series, Lily comes home only to find that her annual family Christmas celebrations no longer stand.

7. "The Princess Switch: Switched Again"

The world may never know!
8. "A Christmas Prince"
