Are you ready for some Christmas movies? Netflix sure hopes so, because it’s getting ready to put out a ton of them. Kids Christmas movies, romantic Christmas movies, musical Christmas movies, Elf on the Shelf Christmas movies and Dolly Parton Christmas movies are just some of what you have to look forward to this year.

OK, there are a few more things, like the fourth season of “The Crown,” a documentary series about weird contests (frog jumping, anyone?), the underrated crime caper “Widows,” and a Brazilian drag queen show. But mostly, November’s Netflix offerings are about Christmas. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
