Top 10 Christmas movies we’re streaming this holiday season

‘Tis the season for cheesy Christmas flicks and we couldn’t be more excited! Between Netflix, Stan and now Disney+ we’re spoiled for choice to the point it’s almost overwhelming. Check out our top picks of what we’re streaming this holiday season.

Noelle
Anna Kendrick stars as Noelle, Kris Kringle’s daughter, full of Christmas spirit, but feeling left behind from her brother Nick who will take over for their father this Christmas. Unfortunately, Nick is failing miserably at his training to be Santa, so Noelle suggests he gets away for a while to clear his head. It seems like a good idea at the time, except he doesn’t return. Stream it on Disney+

In what’s sure to become a Christmas classic, Klaus is full of beautiful animation and story-telling.

Klaus
Home Alone 1 & 2
I won’t lie, watching this back as an adult you really realise how ridiculous it is (I mean
really,how did those bandits survive some of the things Kevin put them through?!) but it still holds up as a great Christmas movie. Kevin ends up living every kids dream, getting left home alone and being in charge, feeling grown up – until his home gets threatened and he has to put up a (hilarious) fight. Stream it on Disney+

home alone
The Nightmare before Christmas
Whether it’s Halloween, Christmas or anything in between, The Nightmare before Christmas is always a good idea! King of Halloween Town Jack Skellington, accidentally stumbles upon Christmas Town and is immediately enchanted; however, chaos ensues when he tries to bring Christmas to Halloween Town.

Do we really need to explain? No Christmas list could even call itself a Christmas list without this classic and anyone who says otherwise the x button is located in the corner – we are obviously not your people!
