All the best holiday movies and specials on Netflix

Ho-ho-ho!

Netflix.
Netflix.

Your favorite streaming service, Netflix, is bringing the holiday cheer to your living room with all kinds of movies and original specials.

While there is a solid selection of holiday movies on the streaming service already, like "Love, Actually," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Bad Santa," this year, Netflix has rolled out enough specials to keep you and your family glued to the TV all Christmas break.

Here are some of the Netflix specials and movies that we're most looking forward to watching.

"The Princess Switch"

Vanessa Hudgens channels her inner Lindsey Lohan a la "The Parent Trap" and plays two different characters who just so happen to look identical and end up switching places. This time around, it's a pastry chef and duchess who switch spots during the holidays.

"The Christmas Chronicles"

Kurt Russell is Santa -- this is not a drill! A brother and sister sneak onto Santa's sleigh and end up crashing. They must go on a journey to help Santa deliver the rest of the presents to the world before everyone wakes in the morning. This genuinely looks like an awesome movie and an instant Christmas classic.

 

 

"The Great British Baking Show: Holidays"

Fans of "The Great British Baking Show" are in for a real treat with this holiday special. We're sure that the bakers will be tested to some challenging holiday-themed bakes that will blow our minds.

 

"Nailed It!" Holiday"

The hilarious not-so-serious cooking show "Nailed It!" celebrates the fact that most of us can't bake that well, and that's OK. This Christmas edition looks super fun, and hosts Nicole Byer and Jacques Torress are as charming as ever.

"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale"

For those who watched the dark and twisted "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," you'll now be getting a Christmas surprise with an extra special episode. The Spellman family is set to celebrate the Winter Solstice with the rest of the coven when unexpected guests show up. Who else is down for a little horror-holiday mashup?

 

"Springsteen on Broadway"

OK, so this technically isn't a holiday special, but "Springsteen on Broadway" just feels like something you need to watch with your family around the holidays. The reviews for Bruce Springsteen's one-man show on Broadway have been incredible, so it's truly notable that Springsteen partnered with Netflix, so that fans around the world could experience the show. Springsteen's run on Broadway ended the day the special premiered, Dec. 15.
