Best Netflix shows Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve 2021 has arrived, and you need something to watch on Netflix.

We shared a list of the best Netflix shows to watch this Christmas Eve and also sprinkled in a few Netflix movies for you to watch.

It’s always hard to find something to watch, especially if you add in friends and family and are looking for something the whole group hasn’t seen. We tried to pick enough Netflix shows and movies to avoid that problem, and we also tried to pick a variety of genres to make sure everyone has something to watch.

Let’s get the list started with Emily in Paris season 2.

Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris is THE Netflix Christmas show this year! The new season of the Netflix original series premiered on Dec. 22, and fans all over the world are binge-watching the second season on Netflix.

Wondering what Emily is up to this year? You’ll just have to find out! This Netflix show is probably okay for most of the family, but it’s probably too inappropriate for most kids.

Fingers crossed for Emily in Paris season 3!

Virgin River

If you like a good romantic drama, Virgin River is the best show you could watch on Netflix on Christmas Eve. The first two seasons have big fall and winter vibes while the third season is more a summer show.

Virgin River season 4 is coming to Netflix soon!

Don’t Look Up

Don’t Look Up starring Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio hits Netflix on Christmas Eve. The Netflix movie from Adam McKay follows two astronomers who realize a comet is going to hit earth and try to warn the population. As you can imagine, they are met with … well, not the reaction they expected.

There are so many major stars in this movie. You need to check it out on Netflix this Christmas.
