It's time to dust off those DVD's of your favorite holiday movies. I've discovered many of my favorites are already on Netflix. We are fortunate to have a tech nerd in the family who has connected Netflix to something like 400 devices in our home. I'm a little shocked my toaster oven won't stream, but I'm sure that's coming soon, too.

If you're looking to get into the spirit of the holiday and want some of my best holiday suggestions, here ya go:


  • 1

    The Muppet Christmas Carol

    Not only does it tell one of my favorite stories, it does it in the unique "Muppet" way.

  • 2

    White Christmas

    A classic, Rosemary Clooney and Danny Kaye make it even more brilliant.

  • 3

    Love Actually

    Not suitable for all ages but if you can get past the nudie boobies, you'll find heart-affirming love stories all centered around the holidays.  It also features a cast most Anglophiles will drool over (Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Martin Freeman, Andrew Lincoln . . .yes, the dude from The Walking Dead . . . Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant and many more).

  • 4

    Veggie Tales Christmas Productions

    Perfect for little kids and usually pretty funny for adult's, too.  One of my favs is "It's a Meaningful Life"

  • 5

    Ernest Saves Christmas

    Not one of the suggestions I would tell everyone, but it's pretty funny in that Ernest kind of way.
