Now that we're officially in the thick of the holiday season, you need to know what the best made for TV 2017 Christmas movies are. Because honestly, it doesn't quite feel like Christmas until you've seen at least one movie where a woman rediscovers her zeal for life thanks to a very handsome stranger and a mysterious Christmas miracle (or something along those lines). Thankfully, there are plenty of made for TV Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime that will make you feel festive in the lead up to the main event. But if you want to know the absolute essential ones to be watching this Christmas, then the following movies are the cream of the Christmas crop.
When it comes to made-for-TV Christmas movies, there are certain characteristics that you look out for more than others. For one thing, such a movie almost certainly needs to feature some kind of epic romance. If they're not kissing in front of an applauding crowd, a snowy tree, or an open fire in the closing sequence, then it's not worth watching. Unless, of course, the movie isn't about romance at all, but about a character learning some solid lessons about themselves, family values, or why it's seemed as though their dog has been secretly granting Christmas wishes throughout the whole movie. And the best made-for-TV movie offerings of 2017 manage to fit the bill in all of these respects.
Get some cocoa cooking and prepare your favorite snack blanket, because you're going to want to watch every single one of these movies in the lead up to Christmas.
