71 Christmas TV Episodes You Can Stream On Netflix Right Now
Disclosure: I’ve joined the Netflix #StreamTeam and have been compensated for writing this post.
I love this time of the year. The visits with family, home cooked meals and travel plans are all a part of this wonderful yearly ritual. Christmas movies are often lumped into the list. Who hasn’t watched The Muppet Christmas Carol a thousand times? Yet, there is so much more when TV Christmas episodes are taken into account. Just in case you need a little push to get started here are 71 television shows with at least one Christmas episode currently streaming on Netflix. Some are fully Christmas themed shows and others only mention the word “Christmas” in passive dialog. I’ll let you figure out what ones are what. Enjoy!
