Fa-la-la-la-la-l right back down on your couch and crawl under the largest blanket you have.

Netflix has an impressive suite of holiday content, and thankfully for us, they just keep ’em comin’ every holiday season. This year, Netflix is releasing over 20 holiday-themed movies and shows, which is perfect, because there’s something special about curling up with your favorite humans (or pets) and watching Christmas movies on Netflix.

Starting November 1, Netflix began releasing its new holiday content. We’ve rounded up all the new movies and shows you can watch this season—and if you’re clamoring for more Christmas, check out all the Hallmark Christmas movies that are coming out this season, too.

Netflix Originals

Streaming: November 15th

Starring Vanessa Hudgens, Josh Whitehouse
If you loved last year’s The Princess Switch, you’ll be first-to-stream this year’s Vanessa Hudgens Christmas title, The Knight Before Christmas. This film follows a knight who gets transported to the future and befriends a modern science teacher—think Outlander, but family-friendly.

Haven’t watched Nailed It! yet? Now’s the time to dive in—this hilarious series follows amateur bakers as they attempt to recreate those enviable Insta-worthy baking creations, often to no avail.

Merry Happy Whatever

Streaming: November 28th
Starring Dennis Quaid, Bridgit Mendler, Ashley Tisdale
This dark comedy follows Matt, a man spending the holidays with his girlfriend’s family that can’t quite be described as “welcoming.” The series is only eight episodes, but don’t be surprised if this one expands to cover new seasons and families if it performs well with the Netflix audience.

More baking competitions creating holiday specials? We’ll take it. Sugar Rush tries its hand at Christmas baking this year, debuting its holiday-themed episodes at the end of November. Thank goodness it drops on a Friday—you’ll need all day Saturday to binge.

Sometimes you find a movie description on IMDb you know you can’t top; instead of trying to paraphrase it, we’ll paste it here: “A broke puppeteer returns home for the holidays and gets caught up in a treasure hunt with her paintball-obsessed best friend, her tango-dancing grandmother and a childhood sweetheart.” Yes.
