Christmas is just right around the corner and we all know that the kids are probably the most excited this time of the year. This, and their birthday. They excitedly anticipate Santa’s arrival to give them presents they worked hard for the entire year being more nice than naughty to be in ‘Ole Saint Nick’s good graces.
Well, it’s not just Santa that has been handing out presents as Netflix has been busy dishing out amazing Christmas content not just for us adults but more importantly for the children for them to enjoy the yuletide season and at the same time, learn a thing or two in this season of love and giving. While Hallmark has been laser-focused on continuously producing holiday rom-coms (and let’s be honest, we all like most of their movies like mayo on French fries), the Streaming giant has, for a few years now, amped up their holiday content expanding their Christmas library to be bigger.
There are a lot of Christmas movies that kids can and will enjoy to choose from, but we felt that the movies we chose would warrant a look-see. Here are some of the Christmas movies that your kiddos can watch right now.
