They are the essentials of our sofa evenings in winter. Comforting, light-hearted and sometimes deliberately kitsch, Christmas movies and series are the "cocooning" programs par excellence. They make us dream, laugh, and sometimes even cry at the same time, which is why we look forward to them every year. Looking for the perfect series or movie to disconnect? The Amazon Prime platform offers a wide catalog ready to delight the whole family. We find the greatest classics that we love to (re)watch, as well as the new ones that will soon be cult favorites. In this guide, you will find our selection of Christmas movies and series not to be missed on Amazon Prime.

After this encounter, he decides to go down into the valley and mingle with the locals. When his hopes of becoming a party director are dashed, he decides to take revenge and steal Christmas.

With Love (2021) by Gloria Calderon Kellet on Amazon Prime

A first. Amazon Prime has also thought about the LGBT community. She produced a gay Christmas series called With Love. Jorge JR, one of the main protagonists, introduces his boyfriend, Henry, to his parents for the first time during the holiday season. A source of stress, compounded by the somewhat extravagant nature of his family. Will they be able to get through this famous stage of presentations? The program, which plays with the codes of the telenovela, has already been renewed for a second season. Calling all fans of comedy Christmas series and far from clichés!

André Rieu, Christmas in London (2016)

There is no need to introduce André Rieu again. Violinist, conductor and one of the world's most renowned classical music artists, he has rethought the very concept of the classical concert by transforming it into a true sound and light show.

An enchanted interlude to watch and listen to in the same way as a Christmas series or movie. Ideal for preparing all your senses for the holiday season.
