Christmas is here and I get those moments to snuggle up and watch a movie. Streaming platforms such as Netflix or HBO Max know this and have prepared, among others, great movies for all ages and tastes on this subject.

We finally have Christmas upon us and with it come those family moments, all together on the sofa in your house watching some Christmas-themed movies or series. However, we already warned you that if you are one of those who has waited too long to immerse yourself in the Christmas spirit, you have a lot to catch up with. 

All streaming services have new Christmas proposals to sweeten your heart a little and take advantage of the bad weather outside to enjoy the odd movie accompanied by, why not, some roasted chestnuts or, well, some popcorn.

That is why we wanted to prepare a list of the last 7 movies that streaming platforms or the big screen have released in 2022. Logically, most are grouped in this last quarter or almost a month, but there is time for everything because some are a few days away from seeing the light.

There are romantic comedies, how could it be otherwise, musicals, cartoons and even a bit of action with Christmas overtones and something bloody.

Hit Christmas (2022)

Netflix has carved a big niche for itself in the cheesy Christmas movie industry in recent years, and this looks like it’s going to be its 2022 offering. 

We are going to find the long-awaited return to the world of cinema of Lindsay Lohan, who will play a newly engaged heiress who, after suffering a ski accident, is diagnosed with amnesia and is left in the care of a handsome owner of a cabin and her daughter.

With a return in a big way, the plot is almost irrelevant, but the story could get you hooked on a typical Christmas Sunday.
