Nothing says Christmas quite like what nostalgic films are on the TV, the ones that remind us of when we were younger and send us straight back to a time where we believed that Santa is real. What a magical time that was! Now, of course, TV’s are basically extinct and it’s all on Netflix these days…but they’re doing their best to fill the big shoes of that magical box that saved our family from so many arguments.

Netflix are set to release a whole slate of films over December, giving you the perfect excuse to curl up with your laptop while you wait for the overload of food to digest like a snake that’s just swallowed an antelope. Consider it to be a Christmas Present from Netflix that you can open early.
