Some holiday enjoyers love to travel away from their cold homes to warmer, tropical pastures, while others may dig into their homes for a lovely staycation. Whether you are travelling or spending the December festivities at home, you will need some kind of entertainment to keep the whole family sane during this busy time. CGMagazine created this specially curated list of shows and films available on streaming sites now. Keeping the holiday spirit up is always a plus during these festive times.

Here are the best holiday streaming ideas for 2022:

Hawkeye (2021)

Hawkeye Episode 1-2 Review 5

Can Be Found On: Disney+

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with some Marvel goodness in the holiday-adjacent streaming TV series, Hawkeye. Here is the synopsis for the show provided by CGM’s reviewer, “Taking place after the events of Avengers EndgameHawkeye sees Clint Barton spending time with his children in New York City, then struggling to get home in time for Christmas when a threat from his past reemerges. On the other side of the coin is Kate Bishop, a young girl who has idolized Hawkeye most of her life, who finds herself embroiled in a growing conspiracy.”

Spirited (2022)

Can Be Found On: Apple TV+

Who does not like a good ‘ol retelling of a Christmas/holiday classic story like “A Christmas Carol”, but with a more modern musical take. Spirited will offer this and more—along with Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Will Ferrell (The Lego Movie film series) as the leads. The film was notable for its original songs and stellar performances with additional cast like Octavia Spencer, Sunita Mani, Patrick Page, Marlow Barkley and Tracy Morgan.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (2022)

The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special 2022 Review 194939

Can Be Found On: Disney+

2022 has been a special year with the introduction of MCU special presentations on Disney+ like Werewolf By Night and this one. This one was a lot more light-hearted and filled with more holiday laughs, as the Guardians of the Galaxy return with a more festive backdrop than trying to save the galaxy. The special film heavily follows Mantis and Drax, who travel to Earth to help Peter get over the Christmas blues—the shenanigans that ensue is not something to miss if you love the other Guardians films.

Binge 2: It’s A Wonderful Binge (2022)

Cgm Recommends: Best Holiday Streaming Ideas For 2022 6

Can Be Found On: Disney+

Binge 2 reinvents itself to the holiday season. If you were a fan of the first one, this had the main cast returning to their Binge Day ways, but now Binge Day has fallen on Christmas Eve. The story continues to follow Hags, Andrew, Sarah and Kimi as they struggle with facing adulthood. If you are into some wild Christmas shenanigans that are not MCU-related, this could be right up your alley.

Who Killed Santa?: A Murderville Mystery (2022)

Cgm Recommends: Best Holiday Streaming Ideas For 2022 8

Can Be Found On: Netflix

Fans of the Murderville series will not want to miss this mystery, comedy Christmas special for the show. Senior detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett) returns where he has to solve Santa’s murder, with celebrity guests Jason Bateman (Ozark) and Maya Rudolph. The catch is that the two guests have no script and have no idea what could happen to them, so you can expect some cinnamon spicy surprises throughout the murder mystery.

Home Sweet Home Alone (2021)

Home Sweet Home Alone (2021) Review 1
Home Sweet Home Alone (2021)

Can Be Found On: Disney+

This is a revitalized version of a childhood classic we all know and love during the holiday season. Home Sweet Home Alone is the reboot of the known series but still “follows the regular formula of comedic violence in the form of household booby traps,” as noted by CGM’s reviewer. Of course, the family leaves their child, Max Mercer, ‘home alone’ and must defend his home against two burglars who are trying to steal a rare item from the Mercer household. How will Max defend his poor home all by himself? You will have to find out yourself as this holiday film is action-packed with many laugh-out-loud moments.

The Santa Clauses (2022)

Cgm Recommends: Best Holiday Streaming Ideas For 2022 7

Can Be Found On: Disney+

Ever since I grew up on cable television, The Santa Clause movies were a holiday staple to watch Tim Allen say and do weird Christmas stuff. This show built on the lore of what Scott Calvin (Allen) and the role of Santa meant as a historical figurehead throughout history and for the future. However, Scott and Carol (Mrs. Claus) are thinking about retiring their iconic roles and return back to their homes in Chicago—adding the fact that their children have never set foot outside of the North Pole. This was a pleasant ride down memory lane of all the previous films while trying to add some modern sensibilities.

The Simpsons Meet The Bocellis In Feliz Navidad (2022)

Cgm Recommends: Best Holiday Streaming Ideas For 2022 9

Can Be Found On: Disney+

The Simpsons is always staple in keeping up with the current climate from pop culture to political views. But, this special short film gets very festive as The Simpsons family meets the Bocelli family (played by the real Bocelli’s). While it is only 3 minutes long, it has a funny, wholesome premise. Homer surprises Marge with a wonderful performance from the Italian opera superstar Andrea Bocelli, along with his 25-year-old son Matteo and 10-year-old daughter Virginia.
