Your Guide to Christmas Movies on Hulu

Check out these holiday classics, some good background noise, and the occasional scare.

On-demand Hulu offers way more classic Christmas movies now in 2023 than it has in years past. But even with those additions, Hulu’s strength lies in its seemingly endless list of Christmas romance movies, holiday horror films, and festive background-noise specials to occupy your TV while you open presents.

Looking for more holiday romance?

Your best bets for those cozy holiday movies are Hallmark and Lifetime. Check out our holiday movie guide for more information on this year’s new romance films.
