Christmas is in the air and if you’re looking to spend the holidays cozy at home to avoid the overwhelming crowds or prohibitive costs of travel, then might as well sit down to binge watch.

There isn't a better season to stream films than the Christmas break. If you need nudging, consider this: experts claim that watching Christmas movies can trigger the release of your dopamine, or happy hormones.

Here are some recommended Yule-tide themed films to watch with your family.

Netflix is one of the most well-used platforms locally and globally. Realizing the upcoming demand, the streaming service has prepared Christmas content that every family can enjoy. Popculture came up with a list of recommended holiday films on Netflix.

First on the list is “Holiday in the Wild,” which stars Kristin Davis and Rob Lowe. Next in line is “Let It Snow” starring Joan Cusack and Kiernan Shipka. Meanwhile, kids and adults who are young at heart can enjoy Netflix’s animated film, “Klaus,” which features Joan Cusack, J.K. Simmons and Jason Schwarzman.

Fourth on the list is a film “The Knight Before Christmas” starred by Vanessa Hudgens. Another upcoming Netflix film is “Holiday Rush” starring Romany Malco and Sonequa Martin-Green.

Straying a bit from the movie genre, Netflix is also offering “Merry Happy Whatever” for the family to enjoy this holiday season. Starring Dennis Quaid, Bridgit Mendler, Brent Morin and Ashley Tisdale, this holiday sitcom is reportedly an eight-part/ episode series.

“A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby” starring Rose McIver, Ben Lamb and Sarah Douglas was also a recommended feel-good, must-watch Netflix movie this Christmas season.

Santa isn’t the only one who’s popular during Christmas. There’s also the Grinch and if you’re fond of Jim Carrey’s green furry character, then you should not miss the remake of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” on Netflix.

“Love Actually,” it wouldn’t hurt to give these upcoming Christmas-themed movies a try.
