Holiday Movies on Netflix

Holiday movies are a great way to get in the spirit of the season. After the chaos of finals is over, or maybe for a break during said chaos, it’s nice to relax with a wholesome holiday film. Of course there are the classics like Charlie Brown and Frosty the Snowman, but there are a ton of new ones coming out all the time, so you’ll never be short on options.
