Getting in the Christmas Spirit with Netflix

Christmas/ Netflix Stream Team

If you are anything like our family there is nothing we like more than curling up under a blanket on a Sunday afternoon after we have spent the morning at the park or out for a chilly walk. We tend to do this every Sunday during December and we love to get in the Christmas spirit by watching some of our favourite Christmas movies.

This year is the first year that we have had Netflix so we will be making the most of it, out go Mum’s TV series addictions and in come the cheesy movies 😉 Here is what we have added to our list to watch on our special family Sundays…


The Search for Santa Paws is a prequel to Santa Buddies. When Santa Claus travels to New York City and gets hit by a cab, loses his memory and gets the crystal that keeps him eternal stolen, it’s up to his new friend, his puppy named Paws to save him.


Jake Wilkinson has just one thing in mind for the holiday season: get home for Christmas dinner or forfeit the vintage Porsche he has been promised by his father. He is therefore more than slightly annoyed when he awakens just days before the deadline to find himself in the California desert, with no money, wearing a Santa suit and a glued-on beard. He must beg, hitch and crawl his way home, learning a few life lessons along the way.


Fifteen year old Eddie  is on a shopping trip with his mother when she is tragically struck by a car and left in critical condition. With their father absent from their lives, Eddie and his brother Stewart face the daunting prospect of potentially losing their mother just as Christmas approaches. One night, Eddie s mother visits him in a dream urging him to find a halo so that she may be saved. Stewart scoffs at the idea but Eddie is determined. Will the brothers be able to find an angel and save their mother before Christmas?

Things we need to accomplish this wonderful tradition…

  1. Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows.
  2. Popcorn or other treats.
  3. Netflix.
  4. The softest, cuddliest blankets and a sofa.
  5. A blazing log fire.
  6. A loving family.
  7. A darkened lounge.
  8. Candles.

Resulting in a perfect Sunday afternoon; what do you do with your Sundays? Do you have a favourite Christmas movie?

    I only recently discovered Netflix (my hubby has been watching it for quite a while on his ipad), when we got a new TV. So far my younger son wants to watch his fave Ninja turtles non-stop on it, but I love the sound of suggested Christmas movies.

    Perfect! I do love snuggling up with a Christmas movie. My favourites are Muppet Christmas Carol and Elf, though any and all make me happy :-)!
