It certainly is the most wonderful time of the year when you can binge-watch all the corny Christmas movies you want without any guilt. Watching cheesy Christmas movies is one of the greatest Christmas traditions around and is now even easier to do thanks to TV subscription services.

So, if you subscribe to Netflix, Stan or both (guilty!), here are the top 10 best Christmas movies to watch before 2020 comes to a close.

1. Love Actually (Stan)

What did we watch before Love Actually? The iconic Christmas love story centres on multiple love stories and is a timeless classic and not just at Christmas time.

2. Holidate (Netflix)

What could be better than bringing a complete stranger as your date to a family Christmas? Well, when he's hunky Aussie Luke Bracey, what could go wrong! Emma Roberts stars alongside Bracey in this rom-com that's so bad it's actually good!

3. Serendipity (Stan)

If you believe in love at first sight (& fate) then Serendipity is the perfect Christmas movie to add to your list. Stream Serendipity on Stan this festive season and find out what happens when Sara and Jonathan put their love life entirely in the hands of fate. And the romantic, snow-filled backdrop of Christmas in New York City is a lovely added bonus. 

4. Christmas With The Kranks (Stan)

If you’ve ever dreamt of skipping out on a Christmas at home and relaxing on a tropical island, you’re not the only one. Luther and Nora Krank try to forgo their Christmas responsibilities for one year to head to the Caribbean but it doesn’t go over well with their family and friends.

5. Shrek The Halls (Netflix)

Your favourite irritable ogre at Christmas time – yes please! Shrek The Halls follows all of your favourite Shrek characters putting a comical spin on Christmas traditions.

6. A Sunburnt Christmas (Stan)

This Stan original is an Aussie Christmas movie starring Daniel Henshall as a fleeing criminal who gets mistaken for Santa Claus - what could possibly go wrong?

7. The Knight Before Christmas (Netflix)

One for all the hopeless romantics, The Knight Before Christmas follows Vanessa Hudgens as she falls in love with her Knight in shining armour and what happens when she tries to help him return to medieval times. 

8. Miracle On 34th Street (Netflix)

In Miracle On 34th Street, we meet another Santa sceptic, Susan Walker who questions whether the man her mother hires to be a Macy’s Kris Kringle for Christmas is the real Santa Claus.

9. Bad Moms 2: A Bad Moms Christmas (Stan)

If you’re a mum who finds the Christmas period particularly stressful, you will certainly get a kick out of watching tired, cranky and overworked mums Amy, Kiki and Carla try to navigate the crazy season unscathed.

10. The Christmas Chronicles (Netflix)

The brilliant enigma that is Santa Claus has gone on long enough according to siblings Kate and Teddy, who hatch a plan to capture the man in red but things go hilariously awry.
