Santa shares his list of must-watch Christmas titles on Netflix
To all the true believers, why am I here telling you about what’s on Netflix this holiday season?
While my typical 9-5 (that’s PM to AM) has me making and delivering toys, I also day-light as Netflix CHO - Chief Holiday Officer. Through my yearly travels I’ve seen first hand what members across the globe are watching and enjoying (for me and Mrs. Claus it’s Sugar Rush) and despite countries having different traditions, one thing is clear: great stories can come from anywhere and be loved everywhere.
As I sit down to double check my list, I thought I’d make another one to help get you in the spirit this year. I present (pun intended) a list of new and upcoming titles heading to Netflix soon that’ll bring you joy no matter your level of cheer.
