Thanksgiving is next week and that means the official start of the 2017 holiday season. Black Friday deals are already posted everywhere and the traditional holiday hustle and bustle is about to begin.

To fully take advantage of the biggest shopping day of the year, you'll need to be on your feet and out the door early, but before you do anything, there's one important thing to consider: post-shopping binging.

That's right couch potatoes, once the shopping is done, the shoes are off, and you're finally able to crash onto your couch, it's important to have a proper binging strategy to keep the Christmas spirit going.

Don't worry, because we're here to do that part of the work for you. Put your feet up, relax, and get your holiday binge on with the best holiday programming on Netflix. Check out our official Christmas Couch Potato Guide:

If your favorite Christmas movie isn't represented, there are plenty of other lesser known and original titles on Netflix, plus your local listings will be stuffed like stockings with holiday movies on Black Friday and beyond.

OK, now that we have that settled, you are clear for the important stuff: shopping. Be sure to get plenty of sleep, limber up, and pack those credit cards on Black Friday! Don't blink, because Christmas will be here before you know it.
