The best Christmas movies to watch on Netflix

For young and old, here are the best proposals of the Netflix streaming platform to spend December 25 wrapped in the magic of the holidays

Once you've unwrapped the presents and enjoyed the many courses of lunch, all that's left to do is to enjoy the rest of the day of December 25 in peace and relaxation. A great way to do it is to watch one of the many Christmas movies available on Netflix: it is the right choice to be wrapped by the magic of the holidays on the small screen.

There are several Christmas-themed movies visible in December on the streaming platform. There are some for all tastes and ages: comic, moving, romantic... Those who love the genre could watch Love Hard, which has as its protagonist a girl from Los Angeles who decides to make a surprise for the holidays to the boy from the East Coast met on a dating app. Plans, of course, do not go as planned! Among the titles designed for younger children, however, is A Child Called Christmas, released in 2021 and based on the novel of the same name by Matt Haig. Here are the other Christmas movies to watch on Netflix.
