This post on 5 Christmas Movies That Aren't About Christmas is in partnership with Netflix as part of their #StreamTeam!
Christmas trees are up, carols are on the radio, and the joy of the holiday season is all around. Starting the day after Thanksgiving, I am in full on Christmas mode. I love it all from the classicly simple decoration to the over-the-top, Griswold family extravagant! Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and I love to just soak it all in!
But after the holidays, that doesn't mean, I don't try and sneak in a little Christmas fun. While I restrain myself from listening to my Christmas playlist on Spotify, I like to indulge in other ways like bringing out the lights (in appropriate colors of course) for any holiday I possibly can.
The other way I get a little added Christmas spirit in December and throughout the rest of the year is watching Christmas Movies That Aren't About Christmas. These are the movies that take place during Christmas that aren't actually about Christmas itself…it's a normal story that just happens to take place during the holiday season.
5 Christmas Movies That Aren't About Christmas

- Sleepless in Seattle
- Love Actually
- While You Were Sleeping
While these primarily romantic movies are just 5 of the great choices on Netflix streaming choices, when you add Netflix mail order movies to your subscription you can find others for the man in your life that take place at Christmas too like Lethal Weapon, Batman Returns, and Die Hard 1 and 2.
