37 Christmas Movies to Watch and Spread Holiday Cheer

37 Christmas Movies to Watch and Spread Holiday Cheer

    Hi everyone! We’re a little less than two weeks away from Christmas. And to be quite honest, I haven’t been in the holiday spirit at all. Lately, I’ve been having a tough time being away from my family. California is now on lockdown 2.0. So I don’t know when I’ll be able to see them again. Luckily, I have my boyfriend by my side. Through all of this, he’s been very supportive. To get me back into the festive mood, I needed a break from blogging and social media. During that digital detox, I stayed in bed and binged on some of my favorite holiday movies. If you’re feeling down this season, here are 37 Christmas movies to watch and spread holiday cheer.

But I haven’t seen any of the popular Netflix originals. Whether you’re a fan of cheesy rom-com’s or classic Christmas flicks, I hope this list inspires you to have a movie marathon and spread holiday cheer.
