It's our favorite time of year: holiday content season. As you can imagine, there's a robust amount of Christmas-themed offerings popping up on Netflix this month. So, if you were planning to watch Love, Actually on repeat until 2019, well, you can do that. But you might just find a flick or two to add to the mix.

Not a fan of holiday cheer? No problem! The streaming service is releasing classic romps like The Big Lebowski and the entire hilarious Friday series, so you can laugh until your belly aches. Among the most exciting Netflix originals coming out this month is The American Meme, a documentary following the highs and lows of Instagram stars like Paris Hilton and Josh Ostrovsky (know online as The Fat Jew). Bird Box (starring Sandra Bullock) and Dumplin' (starring Jennifer Aniston) will also debut, adding to this month's impressive slate of original content.

Below, the five releases we can't wait to stream on Netflix this month. After you check those out, read on for the full list of what's coming — and going — in December

This is one's a crowd pleaser, so keep it in mind to play in the background of any adults-only gatherings you might be hosting this holiday season. It boasts vintage appearances by Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore and Steve Buscemi (available on Dec. 1).

Picture this: Jennifer Aniston as a former beauty queen in small town Texas, raising a daughter named Dumplin’ who is far from the cookie cutter pageant girl. Feels like a cross between Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Whip It (available on Dec. 7).

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale

If you enjoyed the recently released re-imagination of the classic Archie comic, then you're in luck — Netflix is releasing a holiday special. This time, Sabrina Spellman (played by Kiernan Shipka) will orchestrate a seance that, of course, doesn't go as planned (available on Dec. 14).

Bird Box

Sandra Bullock plays a mother desperately seeking asylum from an insidious, unknown entity that has driven most of society to suicide. We loved John Krasinski's A Quiet Place and this feels like the same vibe — and Bullock's broken from her slapstick, girl-next-door style for the lead role. We're in (available on Dec. 21).
