2014 Netflix Streaming Christmas Movies


*Updated as of October 5, 2014 - if you're on Facebook, like the page, and you will see when there are updates.


This is what I call an act of love…


Here are all of the Christmas movies I could find on Netflix – don’t hold the awful ones against me, I decided not to make any value judgments about your choice to watch Barney celebrating Christmas – ‘tis the season to love, not mock your child’s awful taste…

12 Dates of Christmas - Do you love Christmas and miss Saved by the Bell? Or maybe just one of those two? Come on, this is an ABC Family Christmas movie - if you like one, you like them all.  Watch it here before it airs this December!

12 Dogs of Christmas, The - Back in 2005, when this movie came out, I received this DVD for Christmas from my mother. I ended up with the flu that year, and watched this in bed on the portable DVD player my daughter had gotten.  This is an adorable Great Depression period piece with cute kids, and dogs.  This one is great for all ages.

12 Dogs of Christmas: Great Puppy Rescue - This is along the lines of the much beloved 12 Dogs of Christmas (one of my favorites), with a completely new cast - but similar plot about rescuing a Dog Orphanage or something.  Reviews are very mixed.

All I Want for Christmas - What's the best way to get your divorced parents back together? Why, kidnap Santa, of course.  Perhaps this isn't the best movie to show your children if you are currently going through some marriage problems.

All I Want for Christmas - Nope, it's not a typo, it's another Christmas movie!! What's the best reason to start dating again? Because your child wants a new father, that's why.  

ATM - I just watched this, and was surprised to discover that, while not technically a "Christmas Movie" in the realm of classics like White Christmas and Rudolph - this movie starts out at a big ol' Christmas party, and runs its course through that night.  This is an "eh" horror movie.  I'm not a huge fan, but since it was Christmastime, I couldn't help but watch the whole thing.

Bad Santa - this is one of those movies that is so wrong, that it just works and turns out to be right.  This is NOT for children, or for my Mom, if she happens to be reading.  It's pretty hilarious and very very very far from the usual saccharine sweet Christmas movie fare.

Barney: Night Before Christmas - If you want to join Barney and all his friends on a magical adventure, have fun! I, on the other hand, will be in the other room with my head under a pillow.

Bear Who Slept Through Christmas, The - Like "Snakes on a Plane" - this one is pretty self-explanatory.

Bells of St. Mary's, The - Honestly, this isn't so much a "Christmas movie" as it is a movie with an adorable Christmas scene in it.  It also is chock full of Bing Crosby!!

Black Adder's A Christmas Carol - A role reversal - where the Black Adder cultivates a spirit of meanness. 

Bratz: Babyz Save Christmas - Oh No.  Just no no no - this looks absolutely awful.  However, I, your faithful movie searcher, am posting it so you can click and watch at your own risk.

Bush Christmas - Hmmm - a band of outlaws - Australian siblings - Dad cancels Christmas - color me excited!!!

Call Me Claus - Whoopie Goldberg becoming Santa?? WhatWhatWhat?? That's so crazy, there's a movie about it!!

Casper's Haunted Christmas - poor Casper, that annoyingly friendly ghost has to scare someone before the big day.  I'm not even referred to as a friendly ghost, and I would feel bad messing with someone this time of year.

Christmas Angel - Fact: I would love it if all of my Christmas wishes would come true.  I would be rocking a size six bod, baking in my oven that would not burn all of my cranberry bread, and not stepping over the messy debris I ignore in my house.  Additional Fact: all of my Christmas wishes DON'T come true - but in this movie, they do for Olivia Mead!

Christmas Bounty - Let's see - Christmas + former-bounty-hunter-turned-mild-mannered-school-teacher = A REALLY good time!!! Right?

Christmas Cupid – this is a new (2010) made for TV Christmas movie. A woman is haunted by a client who is trying to make her find true love by Christmas.

Christmas Kiss, A - Reviewers seem pretty split on this ABC-Family/Lifetime style Chick Flick.  A woman who has trouble with her boss, for some reason kisses a random gent on an elevator, only to discover that he is the boss's boyfriend.  

Christmas Puppy - Here's a little something you might not have known: puppies fix everything.  Are you a single parent about to lose your job? Get a puppy - or, you know, watch this movie instead.

Christmas That Almost Wasn't, The - Who will keep the mean miser Mr. Prune from evicting Santa and taking toys as back rent?

Christmas Town - I've never seen this relatively new made-for-tv looking gem.  A single mother visits her father, whose town is "Totally Consumed with Christmas" - my kind of place!

Christmas with a Capital C - A town has to fight with a lawyer who wants to take any religious references out of their holiday celebrations.

Christmas with the Kranks - Did you know this movie is based on the book "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham? Consider yourself educated.  I've watched this, and it is a cute little film - a pair of empty nesters try to get out of their annual Christmas decoration extravaganza when their daughter is away for the holiday, only to have to do a mad dash when her schedule changes.  I promise - plenty of hijinks will ensue.

Cinnamon (Alt Title: My Dog's Christmas Miracle) - I have never seen this - but from what I could gather on Netflix, Wikipedia, and Imdb (do you see what kind of research lengths I go to??) - this is about a dog whose single owner falls for someone - and the dog breaks them up, learns a lesson, then tries to get them together.  I can't verify that it's Christmasey, but the alternate title leads me to believe it!

Country Christmas, A - This film crosses that political line - a nasty politician bans Santa, and some good ol' kids are there to fight for the big guy!

Curious George, a Very Monkey Christmas - I do love those cute little Curious George cartoons, along with the Man in the Yellow Hat, it appears the two of them are having a hard time deciding what to give each other for the holiday!

Dear Santa - I believe this is from Hallmark, I know that I saw it in a hotel room last month, and it was just the kind of cheesy, sappy, stuff I enjoy to watch/listen to while doing other things.

Desperately Seeking Santa - Three words: Sexy Santa Contest.  I strongly suspect this one was made for TV, as I don't really see the box office draw.

Dreamworks Happy Holidays from Madagascar - You get a hit of Valentine's Day and then two Christmas specials!

Dreamworks Holiday Classics - while the word "classic" might be pushing it - only time will tell!  Four holiday tales involving your favorite (?) Dreamworks' stars - the digital casts of Madagascar, Shrek, and How to Train Your Dragon.

Dreamworks Shrek's Swamp Stories - time to join everyone's favorite ogre in some fun holiday theme adventures.  Not only does this have Christmas - but Halloween as well!

*Eight Crazy Nights -  *Hanukkah* - Adam Sandler's animated alter ego takes a Scrooge-like journey of redemption in this not-for-young-children affair.

Elf Bowling: The Movie - From what I've heard/read - this movie that was developed from an old flash computer game is really not worth watching.  Consider yourself warned.

Ernest Saves Christmas - YES, it's stupid - but YES, I really really really love it!!! Hey Vern, who doesn't want to watch a sassy runaway discover the true meaning of Christmas (AKA giving and receiving gifts) via the heartfelt buffoonery of Ernest P. Worrell?

Fanny, Annie & Danny - Several reviewers noted that this is a dark comedy - combine a cup of  family dysfunction with a few tablespoons of Holiday reunion, and you get this flick!

Fitzgerald Family Christmas, The - A long estranged father makes plans to reunite with his wife and seven grown children for the holidays.

Fireplace for Your Home: Winter Wonderland for your Home - this has festive holiday music along with beautiful snowy scenes - wonderful for those of us anxious for winter in the middle of July!

From Time to Time - What's better than going to stay at your ancestral home for Christmas? If your Grandmother is Professor McGonagall from Harry Potter (okay, technically, the actress Maggie Smith who played Professor McGonagall).

Gift of the Magi, The - This is based on the O. Henry story, which has always been one of my very favorite holiday tales.  A lot of holiday TV episodes are based on this story - where each person, in order to give the one they love what they really want, gives up something of their own.

Golden Winter - You guessed it - it's those little golden retrievers again.  I wonder when the grown up retrievers are going to show up on Dr. Phil, talking about what it's like to be a former child star.

Good Luck Charlie: It's Christmas - This looks like a 2011 Version of a Full House Christmas (not the plot, but the family friendly TV show made movie length silliness), the ratings are actually quite good - I've never seen the show, but I just might have to watch the movie!

Happy, Happy - A Norwegian black comedy about infidelity at Christmas time.  I'm a happy, happy person, so I think this is probably right up my alley.

Happy Naked Christmas - Hmmmm - I'm not really sure what to think of this import.  I suppose sometimes Subtitles are a good thing?

Hercules Saves Christmas – I’m getting more and more excited about watching this (incredibly ridiculous sounding) movie as I type the description.  When you think Christmas what comes to mind: Presents? Jesus’ birth? A talking dog whose job it is to write Santa’s “nice list,” and has the ability to act as an orphan boy’s lawyer? If your answer was number three – I promise you’ll love this movie!

Holiday Engagement - This one reminds me of 'The Wedding Date' (with Debra Messing - you probably didn't see it, I think I'm one of the only people who did), except it's Christmas!!! This is fluffy Christmas made for TV magic at its best/worst (is there really a difference).  I can't wait to watch it!

Holiday Favorites: Volume 1 - If they number the volumes, you know it has to be good. My thought is that they'll really want to wow us in Volume 1 - get us interested in the next four...


Holiday Favorites: Volume 2 - An assortment of animated Christmas shows from 1952. I'm most interested in "The Shanty Where Santy Lives," and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Holiday Favorites: Volume 3 - This one is dated 1954, but the shows date back to the 1940s - I think the top choice from this bunch has got to be "Jerky Turkey" - seriously, I can't think of a more appealing name.

Holiday Favorites: Volume 4 - Are you excited yet? I guess Santa trades in the pipe for a cigar, and while he's not the posterboy for healthy life choices, I'm still planning on watching.

Holiday Favorites: Volume 5 - One of these holiday favorites is "Santa Claus's Punch & Judy" - I have my fingers crossed that this is not a cautionary tale about Judy taking punch from strangers...

Holiday in Handcuffs – Poor Trudie – she has terrible hair, an awful job, and now she’s kidnapped a man to make him pose as her boyfriend for her terrible family Christmas. This movie puts the Fun back in Felony!

How About You - A younger sister takes care of a retirement home in Ireland or something - check it out - on the cover she looks REALLY excited

How the Toys Saved Christmas - This is another inexpensive animated Christmas movie.  This movie, however, has a couple of things the rest don't: Mary Tyler Moore and Tony Randall!

I'll be Home for Christmas - I remember back in 1999, my daughter's Daycare seemed to have this movie on the VCR (yep, that's right - cassette time) running pretty much every time I went to pick her up or drop her off.  This stars the formerly (maybe currently?) adorable Jonathan Taylor Thomas

In Search of Santa – Penguin princesses go in search of Santa! Wrong pole, sillies!!

Journey to the Christmas Star - Something about the cover of this reminds me of "the Golden Compass" (most likely a girl riding a bear).  This is a Norwegian movie, that, from reviews, was poorly dubbed, but is a really lovely story.  I plan to catch it at some point, and will fill this out a bit more with some facts!

Kung Fu Panda: Holiday - Here is one of those newer "holiday" movies; it's winter, it's a special, meaningful holiday, etc. etc. etc. In this new arrival, Po has to deal with some wackiness, and then learn the meaning of Chris- Oops - I mean - the meaning of "Winter Feast."

Lady Gaga and the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular - Music, Muppets, and Holiday fun - what more could you want? If the answer is Lady Gaga - then THIS is your show!!!

Littlest Angel, The – Poor little angel is torn between heaven and earth. Bonus: he has a dog who also is rocking a halo.

Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mickey Mouse - This is a Christmas special with a number of Disney Christmas shorts (I haven't seen this one - but I highly recommend Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, so I think this is probably worth checking out).

Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas - Three cute Disney cartoons: Mickey & Minnie play out one of my favorite O. Henry stories: Gift of the Magi; Donald's three wacky nephews play out a Christmas version of the movie Groundhog Day; and Goofy and his son Max figure out that Santa is real.  *Most disturbing part: when all of the ducks at the table get excited about eating a beautifully roast turkey.

Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas - I am imagining this to be the sequel to Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas.  According to Netflix's description it's a holiday battle between Mickey and Minnie and that mean ol' Scrooge McDuck.

Midnight Clear - Stephen Baldwin? Hmm. Despair? Hmmmm. I'm not sure about this - seems a bit dark (and not the fun, scary kind, but the sad, I can't get out of bed for months kind).

Mistle-Tones, The - Time for a Christmas Sing-Off! I think the most exciting thing about this movie would be its cast: Tia Mowry and Tori Spelling? Yes, Please!

Mumfie's White Christmas - I've never heard of Mumfie - but it appears she (or maybe he?) was an adorable animated elephant in the mid-1990s.  I do know you won't be disappointed if you watch the Naughty Reindeer!!!

Muppet Christmas Carol, The - Oh, Thank You, Netflix!!!  This is an absolutely lovely version of the story. If you haven't seen this before - PLEASE take an hour and a half and sit down in front of your laptop or TV, it is worth it - I'm fighting the urge to pop out and whip up some wassail as I type this!

My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas - These are the middle age ponies (from 2005 - they're updated from the mid-1980s ponies I knew, and prior to the new ponies that have inspired the Bronies movement).  I think there could be some very valuable nostalgia.

Nativity 2 - This is a sequel to the super fun movie Nativity! The reviews are good - but the MOST important part is that it's starring David Tennant, aka The Tenth Doctor!!

Nightmare Before Christmas, The - This is one of my absolute favorites (my daughter's numero uno) - This fantastic Tim Burton movie is the story of Jack Skellington, whose intentions are good, but efforts to take over Christmas are just awful.  I am so excited to see this available on Netflix!!

Niko 2: Little Brother, Big Trouble - This looks pretty cute - a reindeer has to accept his mom's new boyfriend and his new stepbrother (so would that be mom's new boyfriend or new husband?).  One ridiculous reviewer was horrified by the idea of a divorced parent getting remarried; so if you like this, make sure to leave a positive review.

Not So Silent Night, A - Documentary of a gathering for a holiday concert in New York City.  Reviews are mixed, but if you like musicians like Emmylou Harris, Lou Reed, and Rufus Wainwright, I'd recommend checking it out.

Nuttiest Nutcracker - Back in 2002-2003, this was one of my daughter's favorite movies.  Not just favorite Christmas movies - she loved to watch it CONSTANTLY.  Because of this overexposure on my part, I can't give you a fair and balanced assessment.

One Magic Christmas - Here is a previously unknown (to me) movie from 1985 about a stressed out Mama experiencing some sort of Christmas miracle.  I have to say - the cast honestly has me intrigued - Mary Steenburgen, Henry Dean Stanton, and a very young Sarah Polley.  

Power Rangers Samurai: Christmas Together, Friends Forever - I admit that the Power Rangers have never really grown on me.  I will also admit that I sat through countless hours of them when I was a babysitter to a family with four young sons.  I might even sit through them for 23 more minutes to see this special!

Power Rangers Super Samurai: Stuck on Christmas - here we go - some more Power Rangers (for those of you who are into that sort of thing).

Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The – If you’ve not had the opportunity to see these incredible women perform in person – I think you should jump at any chance you’re afforded (we saw them for the first time last winter in Boston – they are AMAZING). Luckily for everyone, those who have, and haven’t seen the Rockettes perform – you can watch the show on your TV or computer – seriously – this is awesome stuff!!

Russell Peters Christmas, A - This 2011 movie was filmed in the style of a 1970s variety show.  Guests range from Michael Buble to Pamela Anderson. I've not seen it, so I'm hoping someone will be able to give me a good review.

Saint Nick - this is a super evil looking (and, by all reports horribly dubbed) horror movie - not a pleasant tale of our favorite Catholic saint!

Santa Baby 2: Christmas Maybe – Santa’s daughter (Jenny McCarthy) is tapped by her old pops to take over the family business, but is torn between her awesome life in NYC and making millions of children happy.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians – It sounds like the martians are fed up with kids being so into Santa so they get the idea of kidnapping him (and a couple of kids) and bringing them back to Mars.

Saving Santa - I've never seen this little digitally animated gem, but the reviews are pretty great - it turns out, you'll find out how Santa delivers all those presents!

Scrooged - Hooray! One of my favorite Bill Murray movies ever - he plays a modern (in 1988) version of Ebenezer Scrooge, every bit of this movie is spot-on funny and just enough heart warming!

Search for Santa Paws, The - If you liked Santa Buddies, you definitely want to watch this prequel!  If your children like Santa Buddies, and you need an hour and a half to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine, then they definitely need to watch this!

Snow – I actually own this ABC Family made for TV gem. Santa’s reindeer go through a magic portal and end up being stuck in a zoo. Ready for some romance between Santa and a lovely zoo keeper? Me too!

Snow 2: Brain Freeze – uh oh! Something happened to Santa and he’s lost his memory of his wife (who just might be a certain zoo keeper). What will they do??

Snowglobe – another ABC Family made for TV beauty – a woman discovers that she can go into her Christmas Snowglobe, and it’s totally awesome. 

Swan Princess Christmas, The - It's time to take Swan Lake into a whole extra Christmasey setting.  I haven't seen it yet, and I can't promise I will - maybe someone else can, and can give me a review.

Trailer Park Boys: Xmas Special - I'm not a Trailer Park Boys fan, so I'm going to leave this to you to discover on your own.

Traveler, The - I'm not sure if Christmas is anything more than a setting in this very poorly rated movie starring Val Kilmer.  One of us should watch it - I'm nominating you.

Veggietales: St. Nicholas, a Story of Joyful Giving - This is the Veggietales telling a story about St. Nicholas. I am not a Veggietales fan, so I'm not going to watch and find out how it is.

Vicar of Dibley Christmas Specials, The - I've never seen the show - but the photo looks quite British.

While You Were Sleeping - I have absolutely loved this movie since the first time I saw it.  It made me fall in love with Sandra Bullock, and made me able to tolerate Bill Pullman.  The plot is farfetched, but adorable.

White Christmas - Quite possibly the greatest movie ever made.  Fact: my sister and I can perform the "Sisters" routine in its entirety, and sing the song together on a regular basis. If you've never seen it - watch it! If you've already seen it, why aren't you watching it again???

Winnie the Pooh, A Very Merry Pooh Year - We already know Pooh's not the brightest bulb on the tree, but we want to watch him have fun adventures during the holiday season anyway!

Yes, Virginia – this is an adorable animated version of the true story of a little girl who wrote to the newspaper asking if Santa was real because "If you see it in The Sun, it's so."  I’m really excited about this new addition to the Netflix streaming Christmas library!

  1. Thanks for looking all of these up!! My wife & I have a goal to watch 1 of our favorite Christmas movies very day in December until Christmas day as a fun way to relive some childhood memories ... I hate to say it but we're pretty disappointed in the selection that Netflix has to offer. They have very few of the "classics" to choose from. Looks like we are going those to find alternatives to achieve this undertaking!!
    Thanks again!!

  4. Great list!! Netflix should pay you. Have you considered adding Edward Scissorhands? That one is also now available for streaming.

  5. The movie Dutch is pretty good. I think it's set during Thanksgiving but it has a "christmas feel" to it. Thanks!

  6. Thanks for all the good suggestions of good Christmas movies to watch. I love watching the "Christmas Carlo" and "Miracle on 34st Street". I just rented these movies using Blockbuster Movie Pass. If you’re a huge movie watcher around the holidays like me then you want to get this package. It’s offered to DISH Network customers for only $10/mo and allows users to stream 3,000 movies to your TV and 4,000 movies to your PC. It also includes movies, games, and blu-rays rentals by mail and you have unlimited titles to choose from. I over heard a co-worker at DISH saying that Blockbuster gets new releases 28 days before Netflix and Redbox does. I can also tell you that new DISH customers can get 12 months free streaming and 3 months free disc rentals.

  21. Yay for husband-cide by Christmas movies :)

    I'm crossing my fingers that they'll have some more new ones this year. Last year they added a lot of the ABC Family movies. I am BEYOND thrilled that they have White Christmas, I've already watched it a couple of times!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for the great list, but unfortunately many of those titles are going off streaming on Nov 1st. Some are favorites - "Holiday in Hancuffs" as are "Snow" and "Snow 2: Brain Freeze." actually, it looks as if their contract with ABC Fam Movies has ended. Hoping they can renegotiate.

    ReplyDelete

  32. Oh and powder blue not for children. It's about a stripper and there is nudity. And no christmas references whatsoever.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks for the info about Powder Blue - I'll take it off the list straight away! One of these days, when I have the time, I'm hoping to break it down into different categories.

  41. Wow I've found someone who loves Christmas films as much as I do! I was very excited to read your list (and you for doing it) but sadly barely any, if any at all are on Netflix uk, the USA Netflix sounds amazing, ours is about 10 years out of date with very little choice

  45. I've had Midnight Clear in my instant queue for months thinking that it's the 1992 war movie with Ethan Hawke and Gary Sinise. I'm disappointed now to realize it's something else entirely.

    Thanks for the list update.

  46. 8 crazy nights and a christmas too many has been added to netflix streaming

  47. So glad there's a Christmas movie lover out there who realized the "Christmas" search on Netflix was just not enough. Thanks for the list and for your great comments!

    ReplyDelete
  48. There are two Phineas and Ferb Christmas specials, I didn't notice being mentioned the first one I think is the better of the two.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Heart of Christmas, The is the saddest movie ever, dont watch it!!! you are crying from start to finish and it doesn't end happily :'(

  51. Please, please, please, watch One Magic Christmas. It's my favorite Christmas movie from growing up and I was ecstatic to find it on Netflix. Give it a shot!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thanks so much, this was very helpful! Now we need a 2012 Christmas show update :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. For the Love of a Dog is a good dog movie that takes place around Christmas, but isn't about Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  54. They finally have added a holiday section on Netflix. They have one in the main section and one in the kids section. but they really need to add more Christmas movies.

    ReplyDelete
  55. That there are only a few good Christmas movies available for instant viewing on Netflix is a crying shame and almost enough for me to quit my membership! What are they thinking? Seems like they're not too interested in keeping business? But thanks for the list...suprised you mentioned one of my favorites "The Hebrew Hammer"-not for kids; a "B" movie for sure, but hilarious without being politically incorrect! We will have to check out some of the ones you mention here-BTW-we loved the Veggie Tales St Nicholas story and The Littlest Angel the kids watch over and over. Of course White Christmas is the best! Have a great Christmas!

    ReplyDelete

    Here are a few films that, while not Christmas movies technically, take place during the holidays:

    Everybody's Fine (2009)
    Metropolitan (2009)
    Money Train (1995)
    Nobody's Fool (1994)
    Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

    And don't forget about classic episodes from television shows. Here's a couple that stand out:

    Mr. Bean: The Whole Bean - Episode 7 (1990)

    This was fun!

  59. They just added two Charlie Brown Christmas specials. Not the one we all want, mind you, but Charlie Brown nonetheless.

    "Charlie Brown Christmas Tales" (2002)

    "I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown" (2003)

  60. Oh, and "Bah Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas" (2006)

    Of course that and the two Charlie Brown movies all have different voices than the ones we're know from childhood. Oh well.

  63. Thanks for the list! Looks like Netflix has added new Christmas fare! I've just started a cute-looking animated movie called Saving Santa. Don't know if it's good yet, but here's hoping.

  65. Thanks for the heads up on Christmas Lodge. Certainly don't want to accidentally run into a movie that's pretty heavy with religious/scripture references and have to hear about the real reason for Christmas. That would just be so like icky.

  66. A response to anonymous re: the Christmas Lodge. I am well aware of "the reason for the season" and all that, but, for me, I will pick National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation over The Christmas Lodge 9 times out of 10. While I grew up making birthday cakes for Jesus on December 25th, we celebrated the season with joy. I felt as though the Christmas Lodge was aimed at one very specific religious audience, and I am not a member.

  68. Netflix always has great offer for Christmas. But sometimes it is hard to find your movie or tv show series on only one site. Here are other sites where you can watch tv series tv shows online for free. try some of this sites in addition to netflix.

  69. I've noticed we left off all Christmas movies that are on Netflix with an African American cast . I wonder why that is. My family and I try not to discriminate, since some of them are really good and and others give the exact feelings we're looking for at that time of year or whenever we want to just fill the holiday spirit.

  70. The Tigger Movie is also a Christmas movie and is on Netflix.

  71. Last year they had Christmas Vacation, and I was hoping this year too, since it's way easier to pull it up on NF than to take out the darn DVD. Lazy, huh.
