We interrupt this spooky season with breaking news: the Netflix 'Here for the Holidays' schedule has been unveiled. Oddly enough, we've yet to even bust out our fall coats!

While most of us are enjoying the best Halloween movies ahead of October 31st, the overzealous are already dreaming about mistletoe, snow-covered small towns and holiday romances. While most of us have been reveling in scary marathons with Freddy, Jason and Pennywise, the Christmas enthusiasts have emerged and said, "Hold my eggnog." 

Even if we are a few seasons early, we're still looking forward to the streaming service's 2021 holiday lineup. It comes equipped with 28 newbies, including 11 films, six series, five family-focused flicks (for the young and young at heart), three Vanessa Hudgens movies, two Elf on the Shelf appearances and one Merry Sneak Peek Jubilee. And a partridge in a pear tree! 

For those who prefer to bask in all-things creepy and kooky, you'll be pleased to know that Elves offers "a touch of horror to scare you into the new year." Perfect!
