Best Christmas movies on Netflix

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! It’s time to watch Christmas movies on Netflix!

If you’re looking for the best Christmas movies on Netflix, we have some great movies for you!

There are so many good Christmas movies on Netflix right now. To help you find the best Christmas movie to get you in the holiday spirit, we shared a list of the best Christmas movies on Netflix in 2021.

For a long time, Netflix used to have all of the big Christmas movies, or most of them, anyway. It’s a lot bit tougher these days to acquire the streaming rights to the classic Christmas movies with all of the streaming services, so it’s great that Netflix is making so many Christmas movies and shows each year.

There are even more new Christmas movies coming to Netflix this year, including Love Hard starring Nina Dobrev, The Princess Switch 3, A Castle for Christmas, Single All The Way, and more!

While we wait for those Netflix movies to be released, you should start watching these Christmas movies on Netflix now.

Let’s get the list of the best Christmas movies on Netflix started with Love Hard, the best Christmas movies of 2021! 

Best Christmas movies on Netflix: Love Hard

Release Date: Nov. 5, 2021

Directed by Hernán Jiménez

Starring Nina Dobrev, Jimmy O. Yang, Darren Barnet, Harry Shum Jr., James Saito, and Mikaela Hoover

Let’s be honest: The paint-by-numbers romantic holiday movies that dominate our screens each year are an acquired taste. While they’re comforting to some, they lack the bite that others crave from their Christmas movies. Netflix calls on the charisma of The Vampire Diaries alum Nina Dobrev for the holiday rom-com Love Hard, and it’s sure to be a new annual favorite for many viewers.

Dobrev plays a woman from Los Angeles who travels to the East Coast for Christmas to surprise a guy she hit it off with on a dating app. Once she arrives, she learns that she has been catfished and looks to be set up with the man she thought she fell for, who’s played by Never Have I Ever heartthrob Darren Barnet. We were already in for Nina Dobrev, but Darren Barnet, too? Say no more!

If you loved Netflix movies like Holidate and Let It Snow, you’re definitely going to fall hard for Love Hard this holiday season and include it in your rotation every year after.
