A ‘Spirited’ Start to Christmas

‘Tis the season to fall for Christmas movies! While leaves toss to the ground, a 100+ new holiday movies can be found! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for viewers. Just about EVERY television network, cable channel and streamer have new original Christmas movies! 

Grab those Christmas sweaters or holiday PJs and settle in! Let the annual festive viewing party begin! There’s nothing like binging new holiday movies. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. 

My favorite option is sleighs! Tune-in to Hallmark Channel for the happily-ever-after Christmas movies. This network is holiday royalty and tops the list of must-see networks.

Hallmark Channel‘s 2022 Countdown to Christmas schedule rolls out romance and seasonal bliss 24/7. Watch new movie premieres on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights with previous year films airing in between leading up to Christmas!

Lifetime is a close second with their Christmas movie line-up. You can check out their new seasonal movies, packaged nicely in their It’s a Wonderful Lifetime schedule. Watch for star favorites like Keshia Knight Pulliam, Mario Lopez and Kirk Franklin. Get your deck-the-halls vibe with new movie premieres every weekend!

BET+ is also in the Christmas spirit! The streamer is rolling out their holiday kickback! The stars are in full effect! Their original films feature Ne-Yo, Romeo Miller, LeToya Luckett, Jasmine Guy, and more. Expect new Christmas movie debuts weekly through Dec 22.

Well, give me a Christmas movie musical and I’m all in with bells on! Apple TV+ has chimed in with their original Christmas movie Spirited. I was super excited to see this modern musical update of the classic Charles Dickens story. Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are a magical team! Octavia Spencer (Kimberly), Tracy Morgan as (Yet-to-Come) and Sunita Mani as (Past) round out an awesome cast. It’s fun, funny, heartwarming and Christmassy!

Tracy Morgan and his daughter Maven Morgan celebrate the premiere of his new film, “Spirited.”

Christmas movie specials will no doubt catch my eye too! Especially a modern-day movie musical about the making of a network special. Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas has made it on my watch list! It premieres December 1 on CBS.

My top picks with the glow of my screens big and small will be a huge source of my Christmas viewing entertainment. I simply LOVE those holiday feels! There’s so many new Christmas movies to fill your holly jolly fix. And… yes, I will also find time for these honorable platforms to unwrap their new original yuletide offerings: HBO Max, Hulu, Disney+ and Prime Video.
