Editor
These holiday movies are sure to fill your month with cheer

After 11 long months of waiting, December has finally arrived. And though the new month means cold weather and some of the year’s shortest days, it also means that it is officially Christmastime. The holiday season is filled with fun family traditions such as baking cookies, chopping down a Christmas tree, and shopping for holiday presents. But one tradition stands above them all: watching cheesy Christmas specials on TV. In an age when people are cutting cable left and right, the question must be raised: What specials can I stream online?

Lucky for you, we’ve combed through HBO Go, Hulu, and Netflix to find the 24 best Christmas specials to add some holiday cheer to this otherwise dreary winter month. From cinematic classics like A Miracle on 34th Street and Scrooge to colorful cartoons such as Yes, Virginia and Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas, there’s something for everyone in the family to watch and enjoy this holiday season.
