The Holiday Calendar

This new Netflix movie came out this year and is one of the more enjoyable Netflix Christmas movies so far. We love that Netflix is breaking into the romance Christmas movie genre since not all of us have access to Hallmark movies. This movie employs some favorite Christmas romance tropes such as magical Christmas decorations and a friends-to -overs storyline.

According to IMDb, the film is about “A struggling but talented photographer [who] inherits an antique holiday advent calendar, the contents of which seem to predict the future. Will this magical calendar lead her to love this holiday season?”

This is the kind of Christmas movie that you watch when you just want to feel good and not think too hard. Is it the best Christmas movie in film history? That’s up for debate. But it was fun to watch and has some cute moments. The magical Christmas advent calendar was maybe a little ridiculous, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t interested in having one of these ourselves. Who doesn’t want a little magic, wonder, and even romance in their holiday season?

So, if you’re looking for a feel-good holiday movie that combines family, friendship, and a cute romance that doesn’t make you feel bad to watch, The Holiday Calendar is a great choice for you, and you can watch it on Netflix right now.
