With the holiday season setting in, weather getting colder, and Christmas decorations coming up, there is nothing better to do than cuddling up on the couch with a hot chocolate and a blanket and going on a Christmas movie binge. These are the top 10 romantic holiday movies to get you in the Christmas spirit. Bonus- they’re available to
stream on Netflix!

- The Princess Switch
Now I know, the story of two girls that somehow magically look the exact same and switch lives either for fun or to be the oh-so-strong heroes of the book feels overused and frankly, boring. However, this movie is anything but! This is a wholesome story starring Vanessa Hudgens, following a baker from Chicago and a duchess through their lives, and watching them both find love. A perfect family movie, or just a movie to watch when you feel especially lacking in Christmas spirit.
