    1. Paul, thank you so much for sharing this news! I just updated the above post with the newest press release from A+E Networks - which is the same release at Broadway World! Thank you for being so thoughtful to send this link my way to share with everyone! That's really interesting news on all the new movies + the mini movies, too!

      Again, thank you! Net :)

    2. Isn't Dear Santa already air before?

      Amy Acker & David Haydn-Jones

    3. My pleasure, Net.

      But I have to thank you for this wonderful website. It's quite an undertaking you have here, but I can tell you cherish it.

      I view this website as a "one stop" for all my Christmas movie happenings. Keep up the great work.

      Thanks again, Net!

    4. Well, Paul... I appreciate that very much! I do my best to keep the schedule updated, as my own schedule permits.

      I do cherish this site, but more than that... I truly cherish all the wonderful people, like you, who come by and visit, and often share their favorite movies, as well.

      Thank you, again! Blessings, Net :)

    5. Anonymous, yes, Dear Santa is the same title for the movie with Amy Acker & David Haydn-Jones. I guess since this is one of the mini movies, they didn't think it would be too confusing. Let's hope not. I'll be sure to note this difference on the main Christmas schedule when I update.

  3. I bet some of these Mini-Movies could turn out to be some real hidden gems.

    I'm getting so excited for the start of the Christmas movies coming this Friday. I noticed that little extra bounce in my step today. It's here!!!

    1. Awe, Jim! I love it! I just bet you have a twinkle in your eyes, too!

      These Lifetime mini movies do sound fascinating! They are certain to draw interest!

      Didn't you just love the Hallmark Christmas previews!?!?! I almost felt like I wanted to watch with my hands over my eyes, peaking just a little... so I didn't see too much and ruin any of the movies to come! LOL! I felt kind of like I was unwrapping all my gifts on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day, which would be totally weird, in my book!

      Anyway.... Thank you so much for sharing the Christmas merriment & wonder!!!

      Blessings, Net

    2. Net...I haven't watched the Preview shows yet. I am now waiting until this Thursday when they are both being shown that night on the Hallmark Channel. So for me the Hallmark Christmas Movie season starts Thursday. Yay!!!

  4. One thing I noticed from this Lifetime press release is that I was expecting to see the new Christmas movie starring Ashley Jones since it was mentioned earlier this year that it would be airing on Lifetime. It's titled "12 Days Of Giving".

    I wonder what happened? Here's the link to the article mentioning Lifetime airing this movie.

    1. Yes, I remember that movie, Paul! I have some cute behind the scenes pictures of it on my Upcoming Christmas Movies for 2017 page.

      In fact, I have recently learned that "12 Days of Giving" was actually sold to UP and it has a tentative air date of December 3rd!

      So... be sure to look for it there - with lots of other Christmas movies, too!!! :)

      Blessings!!! Net :)

    2. Excellent news! Thanks for the heads up, Net. I don't care which network carries it, just as long as someone airs it. So UP it is.

      My Tivo is about to get a crazy workout these next two months. So many shows to record. I'm giddy!

  5. Wow! All of these Lifetime movies look great. Definitely looking forward to all of them especially Christmas in Mississippi, Four a Christmases and a Wedding and Snowed-Inn Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yay! More Christmas movies! But also how am I ever going to have time/DVR space for everything between Hallmark, Lifetime, ION, and UP?! Such a happy problem to have, though. I'm very happy to see Wes Brown's name. I was missing him in the Hallmark lineup!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thrilled to see Arielle Kebbel back in a movie (Four Christmasses And A Wedding).

    She and our very own Andrew Walker have a special place for me as A Bride For Christmas was the film which got me hooked on Hallmark!

  8. So glad that Lifetime is doing Christmas movies this year! It's always great to have many options for movies to watch!

  9. Wow! Lifetime really seems to be getting back into the game this year. This sounds like a great slate of movies, and mostly family-friendly as well. From past years, I loved "Comfort and Joy", "Christmas on the Bayou", "Christmas in Paradise", "The Flight before Christmas", "The Twelve Trees of Christmas", and "On the Second Day of Christmas."

  10. Can't wait til "Christmas in Mississippi " airs, looking forward to seeing Jana Kramer, she is a great actress and singer.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Now that I've seen all the Christmas short films from Lifetime, I have to say that my favorites were "Delivering Christmas", "A Christmas Snowman", and "The Christmas Trap"! The rest either felt rushed or could have benefitted as a full-length movie.
