Looking for a heartwarming holiday show to watch on Netflix? Enter the new original series Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas!

What is Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas about?

Streaming now, Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas stars interior designer Benjamin Bradley (aka Mr. Christmas), as he gifts deserving families with the best present of all: a holiday home makeover! Bradley, a seasoned interior designer and founder of E & Co. Home Interiors, pair his design chops and penchant for all-things Christmas to provide with four families some very merry, yet extravagant makeovers for the season.

Filmed during 2019 (pre-pandemic), Bradley arrives at each recipient's home with a bag chock full of Christmas goodies. Think: lights, garlands, and tons of tinsel! Then, alongside his design team (or team of "elves" as the press release writes) he gives each home a festive facelift within the matter of days. Throughout the series, Bradley will transform a firehouse to honor a client's late father, help a client prepare to host her fiance's family for the first time, design a holiday display that honors both Christmas and Hannukah, and more.

Why is Benjamin Bradley called "Mr. Christmas?"

Now, you're probably wondering how Benjamin Bradley got the name "Mr. Christmas." As it turns out, Bradley has been collecting antique Christmas decorations for years. In 2018, he spoke with the New York Times about his collection which boasted over 3,000 pieces at the time. He specifically searches for German imports made between 1850 and 1920. Highlights of his expansive collection include: Santa-themed jars and candy dishes, nodders (think: windup bobbleheads), Dresden ornaments, and more.
