12. The Holiday Calendar

There are a ton of holiday rom-coms out there but not many include a magical advent calendar! That’s the premise of Netflix’s The Holiday Calendar. Abby Sutton is down on her luck. She is in a dead-end job and envies her best friend, Josh, who’s been traveling the world.

That all changes when her grandfather gives her an advent calendar. Each day she opens it, it gives her a different object that predicts what will happen to her. If only this was a real thing!

The Holiday Calendar stars Kat Graham, Quincy Jones, Ethan Peck, Ron Cephas Jones, Genelle Williams, Ali Hassan, and Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll,

The calendar starts off simple. The first day, Abby gets a miniature pair of boots and then Josh gives her a pair of boots. The next day is a little more magical. She finds a Christmas tree figurine and then runs over a Christmas tree with her car, only to meet Ty who she goes on to date. The advent calendar gets better jobs and makes her life more fulfilling each day.

But the problem is that Josh has a crush on Abby and while the feeling was mutual, she likes Ty as well. Will the calendar decide for her or will she make the decision for herself? You have to watch to find out.

While this is a holiday movie, it’s cute enough to watch any time of year. Who couldn’t use a pick me up at some point during the year? The Holiday Calendar might just have you looking to change your life for the better.
