Well, folks, it's that time of year again: Halloween and Thanksgiving are officially over and the ~real~ holiday season is here to stuff your stockings with cheer. That's right, say goodbye to pumpkins and turkeys because it's time to dust off the mistletoe and drag out the yuletide logs for a month of caroling and other festive crap. Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, there is one thing we can all agree on: 'Tis the season for cheerful movies. That being said, there are a bunch of heartwarming movies on Netflix this month that are perfect for any holiday occasion, or for just curling up on the couch and relaxing by the fire with hot chocolate.

It's no surprise that Netflix has pulled out all the stops this year for Christmas-themed movies, featuring classics like all three of The Santa Claus movies and plenty more like them, but it's not all about the holidays. Indeed, there are tons of non-Christmas-themed heart-warmers available for streaming this month, too.

So, whether you're looking for a movie filled with Christmas cheer, or just a feel good romantic comedy for a cold winter night, you've come to the right place. Here are some of the most festive and most heartwarming movies on Netflix this month.
