The Best Christmas Movies Streaming on Hulu

Although the pandemic has irreversibly changed just about every aspect of our lives, one thing is still sacred: binging holiday movies. There’s nothing like distracting yourself from the blistering cold or stressful family get togethers than watching someone learn the supposed true meaning of Christmas, or watching an hour and a half movie of actors doing literally anything around the holiday season. It’s the perfect distraction from all the chaos going on in the outside world.

Any decent Christmas movie list can’t all be romantic comedies and family-friendly stories about Santa Claus. We’ve all seen those kinds of movies enough to know exactly what’s going to happen before the end. No offense to the Hallmark Moviemaking Machine, but holiday movies are more than meet-cutes and mistletoe kisses. Sometimes you want a gritty action-thriller like Die Hard, or a horror movie serving more holiday scares than cheer like Krampus.

And that’s exactly what we did. Hulu’s got movies for every type of Christmas film fan there is. The whole family can enjoy A Very Brady Christmas or Arthur Christmas, your mother can enjoy her winter rom-coms with Happiest Season, Married By Christmas or The Christmas Switch, and the Christmas grinch in your family can still celebrate the holidays with unexpected movies around the holiday season, like The Nice Guys. That’s right. Just because a movie’s not about Christmas, doesn’t mean it’s not a Christmas movie.

Here are 25 Christmas movies on Hulu you can watch right now.

A Very Brady Christmas

When Mike and Carol Brady pool their vacation savings to bring the kids home for the holidays, the Brady Bunch—and their new families—come together in this cheerful holiday special starring one of America’s most beloved families.

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Take everything you know about Santa and flip it. In Northern Finland, archeologists have dug up Santa Claus, but not the one we all know and love. We’ll save you from any spoilers, but we’d say this isn’t one to play for the whole family (unless yours is the adventurous kind).

Back to Christmas

This year, Ali isn’t feeling the Christmas spirit. But when she wakes up one morning only to realize she’s reliving a past Christmas, she has the opportunity to change her love life forever. (We’re sensing a pattern here…in any case, enjoy the rom-com and all its predicable glory).

A Christmas Carol

In FX’s version of the classic Christmas movie, Scrooge’s journey through Christmas past, present, future is marred in horror elements. It’s darker, grittier, and instead of one movie, is split into three parts.

Stream It Here

Jingle All the Way

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this holiday classic about a father who really, really, needs to get his kid the hottest action figure of the season.

A Christmas Carol

For a movie true to the classic tale of Scrooge, the 1984 rendition of A Christmas Carol has everything you need. Three spooky ghosts from Christmas’ past, present, and future, and a scared rich old man who needs to be taught a lesson in compassion. It’s more heartwarming than spooky, in comparison to FX’s 2019 edition.

No Sleep ‘Til Christmas

This Freeform holiday movie starts off with a strange premise. Lizzie, an engaged woman, suffers from insomnia. When she meets a bartender named Billy who suffers the same issue, the two realize they can only fall asleep with each other.

Stream It Here

Married By Christmas

Two sisters realize whoever gets married gets first inherits their family’s company. If Succession was a romantic comedy, it’d probably look something like this.

Stream It Here


This horror movie takes punishing naughtiness to a whole new level. Instead of getting coal for Christmas, unruly child Max is visited by the mythical Krampus, a being who plans to teach Max, and his family a lesson.

Stream It Here

Silent Night

Stream It Here

A Christmas Switch

In this Freaky Friday-like film, two women magically switch bodies to learn about the true meaning of Christmas. Oh, and of course there’s some good old-fashioned romantic comedy antics there too.

Stream It Here

The Jinkx and Dela Holiday Special

Drag queens BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon star in a musical comedic holiday special like no other. Fans of Ru Paul’s Drag Race will love this one.

Stream It Here

The Nice Guys

Okay, so it’s not exactly a Christmas movie. But The Nice Guys takes place around Christmastime, which is good enough for us. Besides, what better excuse to watch the Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling buddy cop film than when you’re home for the holidays with nothing to do?

Solar Opposites: Holiday Special

Hulu’s new animated comedy (from Justin Roiland, the creator of Rick and Morty), Solar Opposites follows four aliens who are tasked with finding a new home planet for their race. Instead, they spend most of their time bickering and causing mayhem for the regular humans of Earth. In a special holiday episode, they all become determined to increase their Christmas cheer, which of course, goes very very wrong.
