Chill with Bob Ross A new episode of "Chill With Bob Ross is available on Dec. 1.

You don't have to settle for the same old holiday movies and shows this year. (Though we won't blame you if you want to take A Christmas Story for a few more spins.)

Netflix has a month full of new original movies and series — basically it's a holiday unto itself. From The Great British Baking Show to Gilmore Girls to Bob Ross himself (well, more or less), there's something for everyone.

Here's the full lineup of the holiday fare you have to look forward to on Netflix.
