New Christmas Movies 2020

November 19, 2020

This year more than any other years, I need Christmas movies in my life. Lucky for me (and for all of you as well!), there is no shortage of feel-good, jingle-belly, cozy movies to keep us soothed and happy during the cold season ahead.

Netflix in particular is treating us to quite a good amount of high quality Christmas movies this time around, and I, for one, cannot wait for The Christmas Chronicles 2.


Here's what you can look forward to in the next few months:
