A Storybook Christmas

image: Lifetime

Storyline via Lifetime: If event planner Celeste Everett (Liebert) is going to save her business and give her niece a happy Christmas season, she is going to need help. When the nanny she hires turns out to be a man (Epstein), Celeste surprisingly realizes she may have also found Christmas love for herself.

A Storybook Christmas premieres

at 8pm/7c. on Lifetime

*Please Note: I have not previewed this film, so I don't know, yet, if it will be family friendly. Please be sure to check ratings and use your own discretion when watching.


I hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season! I can hardly believe there are less than 20 days until Christmas now! Where does the time go?

As a cat lover, I'm definitely going to be watching the new kitten cartoon, Spookely and the Christmas Kittens. I can hardly resist their little meows and the way they rub on your arm or leg to get your attention. They are so adorable. I've never seen a green kitty cat or pink, blue, or yellow, like the ones featured in the cartoon, so this should be interesting!

Plus, look for the classic cartoons... Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer airing tonight on Freeform!

I recently updated the Christmas TV Schedule with the latest changes, and I've added in even more movies for the week ahead.

‘PROJECT CHRISTMAS JOY’ PREMIERING ON HALLMARK DRAMA!


image: Hallmark Crown Media

Hallmark Press Release:

Rashad Jennings, former NFL star, New York Times best-selling author and founder of the Rashad Jennings Foundation will host “Project Christmas Joy”. The special program will air on Hallmark Drama December 10th at 9 pm. “Seeing the joy that was brought to the town of Beauregard, Alabama through some simple holiday magic was incredibly inspiring. I feel so grateful to be a small part of this effort.”

image: Hallmark Crown Media

image: Hallmark Crown Media

In March 2019, two E4 tornadoes ravaged the towns of Beauregard and Smith’s Station, Alabama. Twenty-three lives were lost in the tornadoes’ wake. In an effort to bring some Christmas joy to those who have gone through so much, Hallmark Drama will be decorating Providence Baptist Church (known as the “Heart of the Community”) and creating a night of holiday fellowship for the community. In addition, Crown Media Family Networks will be sponsoring homes to be built for townspeople that lost everything during the storms. Ultimately, our Christmas wish is to bring some hope, and joy, to this special community for the holidays.

“This show aligns perfectly with Hallmark Drama’s exclusive offering of original content,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. “We look forward to bringing Hallmark holiday joy to a special town in Alabama for the 2019 Christmas season.”

Distributed in nearly 20 million homes, the network features an unduplicated lineup from its sister networks, and evokes the legacy and spirit of the iconic, award-winning Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise with engaging, dramatic storytelling. In addition to fan-favorite Hallmark Hall of Fame titles, the network showcases an array of movies and series from Crown Media’s vast library of original dramatic content.

--- End of Press Release ---

I absolutely love that Hallmark is giving back to this community - who is very much in need. The true spirit of Christmas is giving, and I know those who gave to help the people in Alabama will be blessed.

I hope you join me in looking forward to seeing this special when it premieres on Hallmark Drama.
