Warm fireplaces, fuzzy blankets and a cozy night in with Netflix sounds like a perfect night in, right?  Especially around holidays. Well you’re in luck because they have got all sorts of festive titles all wrapped up and ready to stream this month. So fill up your queue and snuggle up with Netflix.

For the grown ups:

El Camino Christmas: Stuck in a liquor store during an alleged robbery, a group of strangers shares hidden truths and forms an unexpected bond on Christmas Eve.

The Santa Claus: The snow hits the fan when an advertising executive accidentally kills Santa and suddenly finds himself saddled with jolly old Saint Nick’s job.

12 Dates of Christmas: Set up on a blind date with handsome Miles on Christmas Eve, Kate gets 12 chances to relive the date over and over again until she sets things right

For the older kids:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The Grinch decides to rob Whoville of Christmas — but a dash of kindness from little Cindy Lou Who and her family may be enough to melt his heart.

Casper’s Haunted Christmas: Casper faces getting into a heap of trouble with the king of the ghosts unless he frightens at least one person before Christmas Day.

The Nightmare Before Christmas: Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Claus and plans to deliver ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning

Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special: Amid an avalanche of stars, Pee-wee straps on his ice skates and glides into the holiday season with Christmas cards, carols … and Charo

Gremlins: A man brings home a cute creature as a Christmas present for his son that spawns a horrifying army of devilish — and dangerous — little beasts.

For the little ones:

Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas: George and the Man in the Yellow Hat are having a merry time counting down to Christmas, but neither can decide what present to give each other.

Trolls Holiday Special: When Queen Poppy realizes that Bridget and the Bergens don’t have any holidays, she hatches a plan for Branch and the Snack Pack to help create one.

Santa Buddies: In this family-friendly North Pole adventure, the rambunctious golden retriever pups known as the Buddies must save Christmas.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas: The world’s favorite mouse rings in the holidays with three charming stories: “The Gift of the Magi,” “Duck Tales” and “A Very Goofy Christmas”.

A Storybots Christmas: Bo thinks her holiday gift-giving isn’t good enough, so she heads north to study under Santa Claus — only to find he’s missing.
