This is the time of year when it is so fun to make a big batch of hot chocolate or tea and curl up as a family on the couch with blankets to watch a Christmas movie.

There are so many great films to watch at this time of year, both classics and newer releases, so I came up with 20 streaming Christmas movies. Some are available to rent for just a few dollars, and many are free if you already have a subscription to the streaming service.

Note: We don’t do Santa at our house, so the movies below that feature Santa have come recommended by others! If you ever want to know more about a film, check out Common Sense Media.
