Klaus @ Netflix

Klaus is a 2019 Spanish-American animated Christmas comedy.

A simple act of kindness always sparks another, even in a frozen, faraway place. When Smeerensburg's new postman, Jesper, befriends toymaker Klaus, their gifts melt an age-old feud and deliver a sleigh full of holiday traditions. A selfish postman and reclusive toymaker form an unlikely friendship, delivering joy to a cold, dark town that desperately needs it.

This Netflix animated film rounds out our Holiday Watchlist with a Santa story we've never heard before.
