Honestly, we’ve been watching Christmas movies since Halloween ended, and streaming platforms have made that a lot easier over the past few years.

HBO Max has added and is continuing to add a slew of Christmas movies for fans to enjoy as the countdown until the arrival of Santa draws nearer. From cartoons to comedies and of course, romances that will warm your heart – you’ll find everything you need right here.
Here are some of our top picks for HBO Max viewing options this holiday season.
Scooby-Doo! Haunted holiday
When Scooby and the gang attend a holiday parade, they soon discover sinister happenings around them. From an abandoned clock tower to an evil snowman, they are at the top and must figure out how to save the Christmas season. When they head to a toy store to investigate strange things going on around them, they discover the owner has hinted at the store’s and clock tower’s haunted history.
With time not on their side and a snowman chasing them, they must solve the mystery. The group gets lucky when a Christmas staple arrives and helps them discover that the sinister snowman is the one they least expected.
The holidays are a great time to be together, but have you ever just wanted to skip it all and go somewhere tropical for the vacation? The main couple in Four Christmases, Brad and Kate, are about to do just that when their plans go awry. Instead, the couple spends Christmas Day going between the four celebrations to visit different family members.
What happens next is a wake-up call for Brad and Kate, who have decided to get married and have children not in the cards for them. When they spend their vacations going between houses, they have different emotions, but both lead to the same conclusion; maybe what they’ve been avoiding all this time is exactly what they need.
Will Brad and Kate part ways after stressful vacations, or will it bring them closer together than ever before? You can go live Four Christmases on HBO Max and find out.
