My Top 5 Christmas Movies on Netflix

  • White Christmas (1954)


This is my all-time favorite holiday movie to watch with my family on Christmas Eve. White Christmas is about two singers Bob and Phil (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye), who became famous as World War II troop entertainers. They team up with a sister act– Betty and Judy (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen)–to save their former general’s inn by performing musical acts. The songs are so catchy and I listen to them every year!

While You Were Sleeping (1995)

My aunt introduced me to this movie last Christmas and it’s now one of my favorites! Lucy (Sandra Bullock), who is a train transit, saves her crush Peter (Peter Gallagher) from the path of a train. When Lucy visits Peter the hospital when he is in a coma, his family believes she is his fiance. She didn’t have the heart to tell them the truth and is welcomed to the family, but she begins to fall for Peter’s brother Jack (Bill Pullman). Many people watch this movie during christmas because of the feel good ending and how it takes place during christmas in Chicago.


  • Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983)


I have watched this movie every year since I was little. This movie retells Charles Dickens’ The Christmas Carol, only it stars many Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and his gang with many feel-good songs. It’s a feel-good movie all around and my little cousins love to watch it every year!



  • The Santa Clause Movies 1-3 (1994, 2002, 2006)


These 3 movies have been part of my childhood and I am so excited I can now watch them on They all follow Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) as he takes on his new role of Santa Claus after accidentally the original Santa Claus falls off his roof and dies. My favorite is the 2nd movie because Scott Calvin has to find a wife by Christmas Eve or he can’t be Santa Claus anymore!


  • Love Actually (2003)


My mom and aunt introduced me to this movie about 2 years ago. The plot follows nine people in their own vignettes about finding love or fighting for love during Christmas in England, and all of their the stories intertwine. The stories are very sweet, even though some of them have sad endings. It stars Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth and Andrew Lincoln before his role as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead.
