Every Trash Christmas Movie We Can’t Wait To See This 2020 on Netflix 

Now I know Halloween ended just yesterday, but as we throw away our pumpkins and we’re reminded that cobwebs are strictly seasonal décor, we make way for a new holiday season. It’s November 1st and we all know what that means: its Christmas prep time, baby.

While I do enjoy my fair share of sensationally crappy, cringey films all year round, there’s something special about Christmas cringe-fests that just warms my heart. And no one does it quite like Netflix. I mean they managed to convince Vanessa Hudgens (notoriously Miss Halloween herself) to star in not one, but TWO Christmas films. One in which she had to Lindsay-Lohan-Parent-Trap herself, which just so happens to be getting a sequel this merry season.

There’s nothing like Christmas at Netflix to distract you from an ongoing pandemic that continues to plague the world.

So wrap yourself in tinsel and get to ho-ho-hoing, here’s a list of every wonderfully trash Christmas movie coming to Netflix in 2020, sorted by release date.



Release date: October 28th

You read that right, this holiday flick starring Emma Roberts and Luck Bracey is already out and ready to stream on Netflix.

Two friends make a deal to become each other’s platonic date for every holiday to avoid those pesky love-life chats with family. Can you guess what happens next? They couldn’t…fall…in love do you think?

Release date: November 5th

Starring Kat Graham and based on the real-life Air Force training exercise carried out in the States annually, Operation Christmas Drop is a rom-com (shocker) about a congressional aide who falls in love with the captain of an Air Force base that is due to be shut down by the government.


Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

Release date: November 13th

A musical Christmas film about a toymaker named Jeronicus Jangle is something I never knew I wanted, but now am desperate to see. Particularly considering it stars Forest Whitaker and Keegan-Michael Key.


The Princess Switch: Switched Again

Release date: November 19th

While we don’t have much info on this film, its lead actress and first film are enough to have me on board. Although I’m not entirely sure why a princess and her identical looking baker friend would want to switch positions again considering the havoc that ensued last time.


Alien Xmas

Release date: November 20th

Unfortunately, this one isn’t going to bring a Christmas spin to all our sci-fi fantasies. Alien Xmas is a stop-motion animated flick created by the Chiodo Brothers, based on their book with the same title. It tells the tale of an Alien named X who tries to save Earth’s gravity from a group of Kleptomaniac extra-terrestrials.

Maybe just throw this one on while you bake some more cookies or decorate your gingerbread house.


Dolly Parton’s Christmas On The Square

Release date: November 22nd

Another Christmas musical is on its way and I’m certainly not complaining. This one follows the story of a wealthy woman who returns to her small hometown to evict everyone following her father’s death. Expect: Parton as an angel (literally), small-town vibes, old romances, and *obviously* a change of heart.


The Christmas Chronicles 2

Release date: November 25th

Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn are back following their 2018 hit The Christmas Chronicles. Siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce are forced to join Santa one again at the North Pole after a troublemaker threatens to destroy Christmas for good.
