Netflix is known for its wide variety of movie selections. Big mainstream Christmas movies never seemed to be on the streaming service, unfortunately. For the past couple of years, however, Netflix has been producing its own original movies. The movies are made and put out all throughout the year, but the holiday ones are by far the best.

The first holiday Netflix original is called A Christmas Prince. This movie is about a journalist who goes undercover to expose a royal family of a fake country around Christmas time. There, she meets the prince and befriends his little sister, all while still plotting to expose their secrets. However, she has a change of heart. This is due to her growing feeling for the prince. If that story line doesn’t sound appealing, I don’t know what does. Sure, it’s predictable, but we still eat it up nonetheless. The lead is played by Rose McIver, from the hit show iZombie. This movie has a very warm and cozy feel to it and it will be sure to hit you in all your feels. It is definitely worth watching around the holidays.

A Christmas Inheritance was a 2017 release and it features lead actress Eliza Taylor, from the popular TV show, The 100. This movie is about a rich, privileged, and spoiled New York City girl who is sent by her father to a very small town in which he lived and started his very prosperous business. The lead character, Ellen, is like a fish out of water in the town. It’s a very home-y town and on top of that, no cell service. On her first day there, she meets the owner of the inn she is staying at while in town. He is an all-around nice guy and it starts to rub off on her. She learns the true meaning of Christmas, if you will. Again, this story line is one seen hundreds of times previously but still manages to capture the attention and hearts of audiences everywhere.

The newest addition to the Netflix Original holiday movies is The Holiday Calendar. Since it’s the beginning of November, it is the perfect time to watch Christmas movies… right? Anyway, this movie is about an aspiring photographer who inherits an advent calendar. But this is no ordinary advent calendar. Each day, a door pops open and reveals a small trinket. This then predicts something that occurs during the day. She mentioned the calendar to some people, including her best friend, but only her best friend believed her and didn’t think she was crazy. There’s romance, magic, and Christmas. What’s not to love? With the lead played by Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries, people in the mood for a good Christmas movie should definitely give this flick a try.

Netflix has been delivering in the movie department as of late, especially with the Christmas movies. I am already excited for what is to come in terms of holiday movies from Netflix. Christmas in honestly the best holiday to curl up and put on a fire (even though we are in Florida) and watch a cheesy, romantic movie.
