Don’t worry – there are still plenty of shopping days until Christmas. But if you are eager to get into the spirit ASAP, Netflix wants to help. If Christmas movies really do it for you, there is a secret workaround that allows you to find a truckload of Christmas films ready for streaming.
While they’re not advertising Christmas categories just yet, that doesn’t mean those Christmas classics aren’t queued up and ready to go — you just need the codes below (or the specific category names) to find them right now.
If you watch from your laptop, first go to this link: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTNUMBER.
From there, replace INSERTNUMBER with the appropriate code from the list of categories below:

You can, of course, still search by name if you know exactly what you want to watch (for the hundredth time), but if you’re looking for something new, well, get to browsing!
