If You Love Holiday Movies, Read This

Refinery29 Editors

'Tis the season to be jolly. And, what could possibly be jollier than slipping on a comfy onesie, commandeering the couch, and settling in for a movie marathon? Nothing, that's what.

With Halloween behind us, it's time to set our sights on the holiday season. That means lots of twinkle lights, hot chocolate, and holiday music. But it also means that there will be tons of holiday movies available to stream on all your favorite apps and sites for the next few months. And what better way to get into the holiday spirit than with your old pals Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu?

Consider this your ultimate movie playlist. Many of these are holiday classics; some are feel-good films that make you feel a little less Grinch-like, and all are available to stream online. All you need now is to hire an elf to keep the eggnog and Christmas cookies coming.
