Christmas is approaching and certainly the 2020 holidays, due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has shocked the world, will certainly be different from usual, allowing us less exchanges of kisses and hugs but not celebrations, although more sober than usual.
In this decidedly anomalous context, it is however possible (probably) to carve out more time to enjoy the sagas of films and TV series dedicated to Holy Christmas and where there is no shortage of funny, moving, romantic moments and completely in tune with the magical atmosphere that only the days in December they know how to donate.
We just have to discover, therefore, the sagas of films and / or TV series that a streaming giant like Netflix has decided to offer just in view of the Holidays (to discover, instead, all the contents offered to viewers by Netflix Italy you can give look at the complete catalog of the platform ).
