With everything from the return of a certain pair of princesses switching things up again, a beefcake Santa Claus going on another adventure, and even some seasonal cheer from Dolly Parton, there's a lot to take in. So, without wasting more time than absolutely necessary, here's everything you can expect to catch on Netflix that has anything remotely to do with holiday cheer.
