Now that it's December, you can officially get into the holiday spirit with reckless abandon. While people often debate when it is OK to start listening to Christmas music, there's no denying that December allows for unbridled Christmas celebration. This year, there are tons of new made for TV Christmas movies in 2017 to support your pursuit of Christmas merriment. Hallmark started churning out new made for TV Christmas movies all the way back in October, so if you're just starting now, there's a lot to catch up on.
This year, the Hallmark Channel will release 21 new Christmas movies and Lifetime has six new Christmas movies coming out. Many of these channels' Christmas movies have already been released, as has Freeform's first original movie, Marry Me at Christmas. If there were ever a time to sign up for a cable subscription, this would be it, because you won't want to miss these movies. Sure, their plots are likely similar to other made for TV Christmas movies you've seen in the past, but the whole point of watching these movies isn't necessarily to be shocked by mind-bending plot twists. No, the whole point in watching made for TV Christmas movies is to watch a feel-good story about the magic of the holiday season. These movies deliver on that front, so pour yourself some hot cocoa and plan your schedule for watching each of them before Dec. 25.
