Super Monsters Save Christmas

A new Christmas addition to Netflix this year that sees the likes of Werewolf, Frankenstein and other characters team up to save Christmas. Super Monsters is already a Netflix series and following their Halloween special film; they've treated us to a Christmas one! For kids who love the series already, this is a great  Christmas film for them to also enjoy. 

The film shares the message surrounding the importance of friendship and kindness. A great film for the kids to learn that there is a deeper meaning behind all the fun.


From the creators of Despicable Me, this Christmas film stars Jason Schwartzman as Jesper, a student purposely failing at the postal academy because he’s certain his dad will give him a job. However, his dad ends up sending him on a journey to work at the post office at the Arctic Circle. It is here where he meets Klaus and the movie starts to see a friendship struck between Klaus and Jesper…the rest is to be continued! 

This is a brilliant new addition for 2019 and is certainly one to watch this year with the kids. 

Let it Snow

This new 2019 Netflix film is full of romance, tears and of course, Christmas spirit. We'd recommend this film for 15 years old and over - the perfect film to watch when the younger kids are tucked up in bed. The storyline is simply about a group of high school students who come together following a snowstorm in a small town on Christmas Eve. With friendships forming and romances sparking, Christmas morning will never be the same.  

If you enjoy a good rom-com and the potential cheesiness that accompanies it, then this film could be the Christmas movie you've been waiting for. 

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Moving away from the most recent additions to the Christmas film list, we couldn’t miss out some unforgettable Christmas classics. An absolute classic that debuted back in 2000, based on Dr Seuss children’s tale - How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The movie transports you into a whole new world called ‘Whoville’, which puts you right in the Christmas spirit. Jim Carey executes the role of the Grinch and you may grow to love the green-haired character as he evolves throughout the film. 

This film should definitely be on your watch list this year. Despite being around for almost 20 years, it never gets old and is a great watch for the whole family.

Arthur Christmas 

Yet another great Christmas animation is Arthur Christmas, formed by the creators behind Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit. Despite being a children's film, there are a few jokes targeting parents so there’s laughter for all the family. The storyline is faultless as it answers every child’s curiosity around how Santa really manages to deliver thousands of presents in just one night

Touching on some great topics like family unity and generosity whilst exuding Christmas spirit is what places this film in our top 5. If the family hasn’t seen Arthur Christmas yet, we highly recommend getting together to watch it.

It’s time to turn on Netflix, get comfy, and spend endless hours watching Christmas films. Every year you are spoilt for choice and with festive films being released every year the list just continues to get longer and longer. Our top picks offer variety and comedy for all ages and are guaranteed to leave you feeling Christmassy.
