1. A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix: Nothing goes right for Bill Murray in this Netflix holiday special.

3. The Santa Clause on Netflix: Tim Allen stars in one of our favorite holiday funnies of all time. Watch it for the amazing ’90s fashion flashback and an extra dose of holiday magic. (Photo via Disney)
4. White Christmas on Netflix: This beautiful 1954 holiday musical extravaganza gave new life to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas.” It’s a bright, fun and romantic look at the glamour of Christmases past. (Photo via Paramount Pictures)
5. Uncle Nick on Netflix: Made specifically for those with darker senses of humor, this comedy about a drunken slacker who sets out to deliberately ruin his brother’s Christmas party could be just the cure for anybody dreading their family holiday party. (Photo via Chris Kasick Company)
6. A Very Brady Christmas on Hulu: Here’s the story of a very large family and their holiday get-together with the now-adult children. It took place almost 20 years after the series started and shows the family in a whole new (seasonal) light. (Photo via Paramount)

9. Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas on HBO: It’s the time of year again to quote “jury duty, jury duty, black mail, pink slip” and reenact that scene where the Grinch tries on hundreds of outfits before attending the holiday party. And then, at the very end, you can also carve the roast beast. (Photo via Universal Pictures)
10. Yule Log on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu: No matter what you’re subscribed to, you can find hours of yule log action to fuel your parties. Put it on on the background, play your favorite Christmas tunes and get ready to feel the holiday spirit surge through your veins. (Photo via Netflix)
