If you like this one, you must see the sequel too that carries the same adventure and comedy, but this time it sets in New York. 


The Night Before

This Seth Rogen movie fulfills the criteria of his every movie with weed jokes, adult comedy and the challenges of adulthood – with a Christmas touch, that is.

Last Christmas

For the fans of Khaleesi (from Game of Thrones), this one is for you to watch Emilia Clarke in totally different light!

This rom-com sets in the snowy streets of London where Kate works as an elf at a Christmas shop. 

Her life is a complete disaster: she’s an alcoholic, her career is going down the drain, and her life at home isn’t quite the best. But then things start to change when one day she meets a charming man, Tom. As the whole city sets up for Christmas, these two try to mend their lives with an alluring romance.



This family comedy is surely fun to watch as it has all the visually appealing essence of Disney movies. 

The story features Christmas enthusiast, Santa’s daughter, Noelle, who helps her brother, Nick to prep up for taking his father’s post. When Nick fails to complete the tasks, she asks him to take a weekend off, but the entire Santa World up north gets concerned as he doesn’t return with the holidays just around the corner. Noelle then sets off on a journey to find his brother and takes the business in her hands.

Thirty years later, when he gets too big for the elves world, he finally figures out that he is, in fact, not an *actual* elf and sets off to New York City to find his real family.


The Grinch 

Based on Dr. Seuss’s classic book, “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”., The Grinch is one of the best movies to watch if you’re not feeling the Christmas spirit yet. We’ve watched this a hundred times, plus one, and we still love watching it as much as we did the first time.


The Princess Switch

This Netflix romantic comedy features an ordinary girl who happens to receive an invitation for a baking competition where she meets a duchess that looks exactly like her. 

Believing that they were destined to cross paths, the duchess offers her to switch places for two days, but things don’t go as expected.

Somewhere in between their switch, they fell in love with each other’s boyfriends.

Let It Snow is a Netflix romantic drama that takes place during the holiday season. The story begins when a snowstorm hits a small town right on Christmas Eve, bringing together a bunch of high school seniors, Breakfast Club style.
