It’s Finally Time to Watch New Lifetime Christmas Movies!
This blog is updated in 2020.
I saw a TikTok today that I think you might like. Picture this, some dude scrambling to burst through the door, another attempting to force it closed, and one more in the background begging, “Oh my god, no! Do not let her in.” The one pushing the door closed is labeled “Halloween,” the person begging is “Thanksgiving,” and the interloper is (you guessed correctly) “Christmas.” Click here to watch for yourself.
While it may be true that Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, Lifetime is 100 percent That Christmas Bitch, already taking over with their 2019 “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday movie event.
If this is the first you’ve heard of it, Lifetime will premiere an original Christmas-themed movie almost every weekend night from October 25 through Christmas. You read that correctly, the first movie premieres tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
Here’s exactly which movies you can watch this weekend, either with cable or on MyLifetime.com. (There’s also Lifetime Movie Club for $3.99 per month, if you’re into that. Don’t worry, there’s a 7-day free trial.)
Sweet Mountain Christmas
Release date: Friday, October 25 at 8 p.m.
When a famous country music star Laney Blu (Megan Hilty) is set to headline a Christmas concert in NYC, she decides to take a short stop at her Tennessee hometown to see her family. Because this is a holiday movie, she ends up stranded during a storm and is forced to spend more time in her hometown. Luckily, not everything is as bad as she remembers it…especially a certain snowplow driver named Robbie (Marcus Rosner).
The Road Home for Christmas
Release date: Saturday, October 26 at 8 p.m.
Dueling pianists and musical rivals Lindsay (Marla Sokoloff) and Wes (Rob Mayes) decide to road trip to their neighboring hometowns together for Christmas (which is kind of a theme with these movies, I guess). During their drive, holiday chaos ensues. Once again, a massive snowstorm might just be a catalyst for love.
No Time Like Christmas
Release date: Sunday, October 27 at 8 p.m.
After Emma (Kyla Pratt) finds her college boyfriend’s engraved watch at a vintage jewelry shop, her sister Bronwyn (Rachel McLaren) believes it is a sign. As any sisters who’ve seen The Parent Trap one too many times would do, she secretly sends Emma to the same Vermont bed and breakfast that her ex is staying.
But Fletcher (Ed Ruttle) is not alone. Throughout the week before Christmas, Emma finds herself falling back in love with her ex and his adorable daughter. Oh, and they have to, like, save a local theater, I guess? Just go with it.
