What Christmas movies are on Netflix UK? That’s the question we always find ourselves asking, as the nights grow dark and the real world gets too cold for normal human beings. So, with only a matter of weeks to go until the big day, we present to you the full list of Christmas films available on Netflix UK in 2019.

Even better news, some of the previous seasonal slips, from Santa Baby 2 to the dire Holiday in Handcuffs, are nowhere in sight – although there are still no fewer than three Power Rangers Christmas specials available.
