12 Days of Christmas. Netflix Style.

The 12 Days of Christmas... Netflix Style. - SahmReviews.com


It’s hard to believe that only yesterday we were celebrating the start of the new school year. If my girls are reading this, we weren’t throwing a party and having drinks and appetizers. We are lonely when they go to school. Of course, any parent knows exactly how we all feel about the start of school. Right?

But it makes time fly, that’s for certain. Homework and activities and sports and carpooling and whatnot. Before we know it, half the year is gone and *poof* Christmas break is here. Like this. Christmas is soon! So to get in the festive spirit (aside from the holiday gift guides and boatload of giveaways we have been running), I’ve decided a little Christmas carol is in order. This time, Netflix-style.

On the first day of Christmas, my Netflix gave to me…

A partridge in a pear tree! Alright. It’s Alan Partridge and he probably isn’t in a pear tree, but work with me here people. We’re being creative with this song. And at least I’m not on video singing. You’re welcome.

One the second day of Christmas, my Netflix gave to me… Wait. Let’s just start at 12 and work our way backwards or this could get a bit redundant. So skip to the final verse and sing along.

12 Drummers Drumming – Netflix regularly streams concerts on their service. From classics like The Eagles and Ray Charles to current pop artists like One Direction or Justin Bieber. You may need to watch a few of the concerts to find 12 drummers, but it’s worth is, right?

You can stream all kinds of cooking shows on Netflix. Let's watch some bakers piping! - SahmReviews.com #StreamTeam

11 Bakers Piping – Okay, fine. I don’t know how many there are but pastry chefs pipe frosting into amazing decorations and confections. So do cake people. And cupcake creators. And it’s the holidays so why not bake… and pipe. It works for me.

You'll want to jump at this one on Netflix: Quantum Leap! - SahmReviews.com #StreamTeam

10 Lords a-Leaping – Hmmmm. Maybe this one needs to be broken up a bit. Send the kids off with Leap Frog, then watch 10 episodes of Lords of War followed by Quantum Leap and Leap Year!

Netflix has shows about dancing for children and adults! - SahmReviews.com #StreamTeam
Ladies Dancing – Adults and kids can find something about dancing. From My Little Pony and Angelina Ballerina to a miniseries following the Louis Lester Band.

Maids Conspiring – There aren’t quite 8 and these brides(maids) aren’t milking anything except ideas for breaking up the wedding. Want something less vindictive? Jennifer Lopez may be more your taste in maids.

Whales a-Swimming – Watch a documentary about swimming with killer whales or go a different way and take in The Midnight Swim.

Netflix has a throwback to 1978 - Roger Moore and Richard Burton in The Wild Geese. - SahmReviews.com #StreamTeam

Wild Geese – This one is a throwback. Isn’t Netflix awesome like that? Richard Burton and Roger Moore. Need I say more?

5 Golden Things – On Golden Pond, The Golden Child, The Golden Era, Golden Door and The Golden Hammer. So many golden things can be found on Netflix. On Golden Pond, a classic that everyone should see! I saw it years ago but think I’m due for a recap. Other hits like The Golden Child as well as Bob the Builder for the littles in the family.

Learn about birds. Stream the Life of Birds on Netflix. - SahmReviews.com

Calling Birds – There are a whole lot more than just 4! Learn about all kinds of birds in 10 episodes of The Life of Birds. The documentary series from 1998 explores more than 300 species of birds.

Have you seen The French Connection? Stream it on Netflix! - SahmReviews.com #StreamTeam

French Hens – Or better yet, one classic French Connection! This is one of those classics that people talk about, you see in crossword puzzles and has found a place in pop culture. Yet I haven’t seen it. How about you? Thank goodness Netflix makes it available to stream!

2 (technically 4) Ninja Turtles – Don’t tell me you didn’t see that one coming!

and Alan Partridge not in a pear tree!

So what is the point of this silly “song” I’ve created for you? It’s to show that Netflix offers a whole lot of variety of classic movies and TV shows, documentaries from across the ages as well as new original hit series. With only a few days left until Christmas, if you’re still stuck on ideas for gifts (even though we’ve given you tons!) then maybe a subscription to Netflix is what you should consider… even if it’s for yourself! What’s not to love about it?

Have you watched old classic shows like The French Connection and On Golden Pond?

  1. I love this list! Now that I’m on winter break from school and have a few days off of work coming up I can finally spend a day only leaving the couch for food and the ladies room. I’ve already got my wine, all I needed was my Netflix line up and now I’ve got it!

    Happy Holidays,

  2. This. Is. Awesome! I love this list! I love your spin on the 12 Days of Christmas/Netfilx. Very fun take on it.

  3. What a fun list! I have Netflix but a lot of those are movies or shows I haven’t seen yet. We are going to watch some Christmas movies tonight on Netflix 🙂

  4. As soon as I saw the list, I did think of the TMNT. 🙂 This is fun. I’m a newish Netflix fan. We watched the new Frosty last night.
