Cinema session with these Christmas movies on HBO Max

With the arrival of december we adapt everything that surrounds us for the festive atmosphere: decorations, Christmas sweaters, typical sweets … and even what we see on television is set at parties. Christmas series and movies to get into the spirit when December arrives, comedies or animation specials for all audiences on all platforms. Here are some of the Christmas movies you can watch on HBO Max.

If we had to stay with a streaming platform to watch Christmas movies, it would probably not be HBO Max because it is not the one with the most extensive thematic catalog in this regard. There are not too many options for a Christmas movie marathon on this platform but if you are subscribed you can see some of the classics for the whole family. Funny comedies that don’t go out of style, like The Grinch, or sagas that we always turn to when cold afternoons arrive in December, like Harry Potter.

For the entire family

If you want to see fantasy and family comedies, we can catch some Christmas movies on HBO Max. Funny and new comedies like Christmas in 8 bits but also others with more than twenty years, like Jiom Carrey giving life to The Grinch.

The Grinch

One of the classic Christmas tales is The Grinch, whose protagonist is a green and hairy being, who lives alone in a cave and who does not want to have friends or know anything about the inhabitants of the city. A little girl, when the whole town is getting ready for Christmas, discovers why he behaves like this and invites him to the celebration with the others, but the party ends in disaster and The Grinch, played by Jim Carrey, decides to steal Christmas. The film tells a classic story of the Christmas holidays, in which family celebration is given importance and the materialism of gifts is criticized, and which has remained in the memory whenever the end of the year dates approach.
