Even though some people prefer to hold onto fall until after Thanksgiving, others can’t help but switch right into Christmas mode. If you’re in the latter camp, you're in good company, as Netflix is adding a slew of new Christmas movies to its library this month.

The slate of holiday films features a handful of children’s movies, some romance movies, and—of course—lots of new Netflix originals. Below, we've highlighted four standout originals coming in November, followed by the full list for the month after that. If you’re starting to ring in Christmas early, here’s what you need to watch.

Love Hard

Release Date: November 5

Love Hard premieres on Netflix on November 5, and it kicks off the new holiday movie slate on the streamer. The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev headlines this charming rom-com where she plays a Los Angeles woman who travels across the country for Christmas to surprise a guy she’s hit it off with on a dating app. However, she soon discovers she’s been catfished by his best friend—who then promises to set her up with the man she was originally after. Love Hard also stars Never Have I Ever breakout star Darren Barnet and Jimmy O. Yang.

The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star

Release Date: November 18

Vanessa Hudgens returns for the third entry in the Princess Switch saga with The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star. Once again, the singer-actress will be tackling multiple roles for the second sequel to the fan-favorite Netflix Christmas movie.

A Boy Called Christmas

Release Date: November 24

A Boy Called Christmas is a new family holiday movie that’s directly centered on the popular mythology surrounding Christmas. The movie follows a young boy named Nikolas (who is actually a young Father Christmas) as he sets off on a journey with his pet mouse and a reindeer by his side to fulfill his destiny.

A Castle for Christmas

Release Date: November 30

Brooke Shields brings her charm to Netflix for A Castle for Christmas, in which she stars as an author with the hopes of purchasing a castle in Scotland, only to butt heads (and maybe fall for) its grouchy owner.
