Here Are All The Lifetime Holiday Movies Playing This Holiday Season So You Can Get Your Cozy On
The holiday season is already here (I know), and there are so many ways to celebrate. Personally, I like to cozy up on the couch and get my hygge on with some feel-good holiday romantic movies. Luckily, a bunch of new Lifetime holiday movies are playing this season, as part of the "It's A Wonderful Lifetime" series, and now seems like the perfect time to get acquainted with them all.
For the 2018 holiday season, Lifetime will be airing 14 new original movies. And yes, I will be taking you through all of them, so that you can be prepared for the onslaught of new Christmas content this winter.
Kicking off the "It's A Wonderful Lifetime" series is a special called It's A Wonderful Lifetime Christmas Movie Preview Special, starring is Melissa Joan Hart. Hart will show previews of the 14 new original films with viewers. In the special, the host of Lifetime's Christmas Past, Present, and Future, will visit Hart to teach her about this year's new movies. Sounds a little hokey, but it still may be worth tuning into the special, which will air on Lifetime on Nov. 17 at 10 p.m. ET.
So without further ado, here are the new Christmas movies playing on Lifetime this year, according to Lifetime's website.
