December is here, and Christmas is just a few weeks away! But colored string lights are strung across trees and bushes, Christmas music is playing in CVS, and everyone is in the mood to watch Christmas movies. So, if you’re one of those people that puts up the Christmas tree lights as soon as the weather drops below 60 degrees, you’re in for a treat for the next six weeks.
This year, Netflix has some of the binge-worthy Christmas movies that will show before Santa even parks his sleigh on our roofs, which is cause enough to rejoice in the season’s spirit.
However, if you’re already a Netflix subscriber, you may binge-watch a variety of new Christmas movies to help you celebrate the season at the comfort of your couch with mulled wine in your hand. But, as we all know, not every Christmas film is a hit, or according to your taste.

That’s why Team RantEnt has put together a list of some of the newly released best Christmas movies on Netflix right now to help you pick the ones that are worth your time before Christmas is officially here! So, please look at our round-up of the best Christmas movies this year!
