September through December is often considered the most festive time of the year. With Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve to look forward to, many eager TV and movie fans will be waiting in anticipation for the newest Netflix originals to be released so they can be binge-watched around the season of good cheer.
During the earlier fall season, Netflix released a spooky selection of Halloween thrillers, including Hypnotic, Night Teeth and Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight II, which all proved to be popular hits with the American audience. However, as the merry winter season approaches, seasonal entertainment will inevitably begin to make a comeback.
Christmas-themed quiz shows, parties, games, and casino slots will be becoming more prevalent during the countdown to Christmas. Lots of people will be fetching down board games from the attic, retrieving festive console games out of their boxes, and trying their luck with yuletide casino slots online, playing slot games like Christmas Cashpots and Very Merry Christmas to get into a more festive spirit. Christmas television programs and movies will also start making an appearance, giving people warm and fuzzy feelings associated with the special holiday.
Netflix has already announced that they are releasing 14 Christmas movies this year, perfect for those looking forward to watching wholesome, festive movies whilst wrapped up in cozy blankets on the couch.
