As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I receive a Netflix subscription and a streaming device. All opinions are my own.
Most of what we watch is for the kids. This time of year, everyone is talking about the movies for kids (and there are a ton of them that we love). I’m going to share some of my favorite movies to watch on Netflix during the holidays once the kids are in bed for the night or on the rare occasion that they nap simultaneously and I’m able to get through a show of my own.
Two war buddies (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye) fall for two sisters and follow the girls to a resort owned by their former commanding officer, who is in danger of losing the place.
Unexpectedly single just before the holidays, an aspiring artist (Melissa Joan Hart) kidnaps a handsome stranger (Mario Lopez) to introduce to her family as her new boyfriend.
After devising a “sexy Santa” contest to increase Christmas sales, young marketing guru Jennifer (Laura Vandervoort) winds up falling for the winner (Nick Zano), a local hero.
This ensemble comedy (including Andrew Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson) is a charming treatise on romance, telling 10 intertwining London love stories, leading up to a climax on Christmas Eve.

Finding a letter mailed to Santa by a girl asking for a new wife for her daddy, twentysomething Crystal sets out to make the girl's wishes come true.
Melody Gerard (Jennie Garth), a high-powered corporate executive, is in for an unpleasant surprise when she takes a spill and wakes up in an alternate universe.
When Luther Krank (Tim Allen) and his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) opt to skip Christmas — no tree and no rooftop Frosty — can they handle the fallout from their family and neighbors?
When Angela (Christina Milian) finds a mystical snow globe that transports her into a winter wonderland, she has to make a choice about what Christmas really means.
After learning the Santa Claus she hired is the real deal, a testy TV producer (Whoopi Goldberg) finds herself chosen to replace him as he faces mandatory retirement.
Bumbling trainee Nick Snowden (Tom Cavanaugh), next in line to take over the duties of Santa Claus, embarks on a journey to California to bring back a lost reindeer.
Set up on a blind date with handsome Miles (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) on Christmas Eve, Kate (Amy Smart) gets 12 chances to relive the date over and over again until she sets things right.
I love being able to watch a Christmas movie while wrapping presents or just enjoying the alone time.
