We’re sure these movies will be playing in every household after Home Alone.

The magic of the holiday season is undeniable. Whether you celebrate it or not, whether you enjoy giving more than receiving or vice versa, whether you plan to spend the time alone or with family or friends, it does not matter. What matters is a positive attitude and a belief in better times to come.

And if for some reason you're having trouble setting the mood yourself, there's always the media to help. From Mariah Carrey's all-time favorite musical hit to Macaulay Culkin's breakout performance in Home Alone.

But if you're looking for something a little fresher, here are five Netflix Original holiday movies that are so good that they have a shot at becoming staples next season.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

This story has everything you want in a holiday movie: it's colorful, magical, and a reminder of the importance of family. Follow the adventures of a young girl named Journey who bravely decides to help her grandfather, the toymaker Jeronicus Jangle, save his most important invention.


A story about Santa Claus that you probably never really knew. This animated movie will show you how one selfless act of gift-giving was able to transform even the most miserable place in the whole world into a happier one, the one that accepts and celebrates. A great watch for those who have stopped believing in magic to turn the light back on.

A Boy Called Christmas

The movie starring Maggie Smith, Henry Lawfull, and Kristen Wiig was made to be a success from the very first trailer. It is a beautifully written and beautifully produced piece that can be enjoyed in the company of a whole family, or alone as a little pick-up act. No matter how grown up you are, you will find yourself just as invested in the fairy tale story as the next kid.

Let It Snow

If you're looking for a movie that's a little more relatable and down to earth, this Christmas story based on the novel of the same name by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle is for you. Let It Snow is the perfect mix of Netflix-style coming-of-age movie with a fun holiday twist that will leave you feeling warm, fuzzy, and happy by the time you're done.

Alien Xmas

Another animated film on the list has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, which is an achievement in itself. A fun take on an alien takeover in an interesting animation style that will not bore you for a second. Grab your little ones and give Alien Xmas a try at your next family gathering.
