In the years before basic cable, decades before the streaming era, Christmas movies were an annual tradition on broadcast networks. Every year, families or solo holidaymakers can take solace in the fact that they’ll be able to watch some of their favorite Christmas movies for free – assuming they were home in time to watch them. Currently, free movies are becoming rare among streamers. But YouTube is filling the void with tons of free Christmas movies that you can watch anytime.
Since the holiday season is here, we’ve updated our list of the best free Christmas movies you can find on YouTube in 2023. The selection may change between now and 2024, but like Santa, we’ll be back at least once a year to make sure everything is still here, as well as another one of the world’s biggest streaming platforms. Adding even more Christmas joy.
