The elves over at Hulu have been busy tinkering with this December’s Christmas-themed titles, and while their haul isn’t heavy on big-name classics, it definitely includes underrated, deep-cut holiday offerings to land the streaming service on our nice list.
Along with some of our favorites that really should be considered holiday movies considering all the ice-related plot points (Titanic, anyone?), Hulu’s festive December arrivals include everything from Christmas lighting competitions (The Great Christmas Light Fight), to a love story between two dogs (A Christmas Wedding Tail), to a trippy-sounding animated movie about saving Santa from a dance-crazed alien (The Yummy Gummy Search for Santa).
One that’s really got visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads? The criminally underappreciated 1998 family comedy I’ll Be Home for Christmas. (Because, hello, Jonathan Taylor Thomas in his ’90s prime. Plus, Jessica Biel!)
There are also a couple Freeform docuspecials we’re adding to our wish list/watch list stat: There’s Holiday Fairy Tale Wedding, which will surely be as dreamy as it sounds. We’re hoping for glittering ice princess gowns, poinsettia centerpieces, and reindeer-pulled sleigh rides down a snow-carpeted aisle. Then there’s Decorating Disney, a special examination of how the holiday helpers at the happiest place on earth make things even happier — and a lot more twinkly.
So stock up on the hot cocoa, because here’s every Christmas gift to look out for on Hulu next month:
A Christmas Wedding Tail
A Princess for Christmas

I’ll Be Home for Christmas
