Netflix: The secret codes that unlock all the best Christmas movies

The house is filled with the rich scent of pine, you've wrestled for hours with an angry python of tangled fairy lights and your bank account is empty - it's Christmas! 

With so much hard work to be done over the festive season, it's fair to say you'll be looking forward to putting your feet up watching some feel-good holiday content. 

But where to begin? The last thing you need is to be overwhelmed by the mountain of movie options on Netflix and other streaming services, paralysing you with indecision and pissing off your loved-ones.

In what can only be described as a Christmas miracle, Netflix has delivered a list of secret codes that unlock an entire Santa sack full of films, helpfully broken down by genre. 

All a weary Christmas reveller needs to do is go to http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/ and add the appropriate code to the end of the URL.
