    Thanks for showing The Christmas Ball this year! I LOVE that movie (Ballerina helping Aunt Bridgette) and falls for young history teacher. When will it be out for sale? THIS is one I really want to own!

    When will The Santa Squad be on again. I saw the first half this morning but then had to go to work.

    • December 12, 2021 at 11:52 PM

      The Santa Squad will be airing December 18th at 11:00am on Lifetime.

    You stated “Xmas Unwrapped” is scheduled the second time on 6 Dec 21 at 10:00AM.

    The Dec 6 schedule above lists “Nanny for Christmas” at 10:00am.

    Could you send a revised schedule making the correction or show it again before the Xmas shows end.


  • November 16, 2021 at 9:38 PM

    I signed up for updates and I got one and it wasn’t a Christmas movie?

  • November 11, 2021 at 5:24 AM

    When are you going to play Holiday switch ?

  • November 7, 2021 at 12:53 AM

    Hi, me again. Apparently I have too much time on my hands, to be doing this. But it appears that as I write this on 11/7/21, you’re missing MANY holiday movies that are scheduled for Lifetime. the first part of your Lifetime schedule, looks pretty good, up thru about November 29. But then you only show two more, one on 12/3 and another on 12/12. But on, which apparently is the official Lifetime channel website, they show MANY more movies in December, including one every day in December, thru 12/25. Is this right, or am I missing something? Thank you.

      Hi Steve, Lifetime (and many other channels) tend to change their schedules often during the holiday season so we only post a few weeks at a time to avoid any confusion when these changes are made.

  • November 5, 2021 at 12:24 PM

    as i write this (noon on 11/5/21), looks like there’s something wrong with your schedule, namely the date of “Merry Liddle Christmas Baby”. It currently shows Saturday, November 17. But it’s between Friday, Nov 26 and Sunday Nov 28, so I’m thinking you mean Saturday Nov 27, right?

    • November 5, 2021 at 3:40 PM

      Yes thank you for catching that! All fixed.

  • December 8, 2020 at 5:15 PM

    This is a great site to reference what Christmas movies are out and to see if they are on TV and if the are possibly airing. However, unless I’m wrong this website doesn’t control the airing schedule of each individual television station or who sells what DVD. They just report what has been put out.

    My favorite Christmas movie is “A Christmas Kiss” Why is it shown only once in October?! Certain movies are shown multiple times. So disappointing…..

  • December 2, 2020 at 10:55 AM

    Why is “The Christmas Shoes” only shown once in October? That is one of the most beautiful Christmas movies I have ever seen. Also, is the follow up movie going to show this year.

  • December 1, 2020 at 6:26 PM

    Why is the Spirit of Christmas wit Jen Lilley not scheduled to broadcast again this year? I had to leave home half way through. Please, will you broadcast it again?

    • November 7, 2021 at 1:45 AM

      I would love to watch the movie Spirit of Christmas it’s my favorite lifetime Christmas movie

  • November 24, 2020 at 7:52 AM

    I agree with all the above, but have an addition. Will you air Holiday Switch this year?

  • November 13, 2020 at 8:21 PM

    Hi-I’m having a hard time trying to find out when “A Gift Wrapped Christmas” is airing this year. Can you let me know if it will be on TV this year? I will be disappointed if it isn’t.


    • November 25, 2020 at 9:29 AM

      One of my families’ favorites as well. It will be shown at least once, the first time being on Wednesday, December 2nd at noon (11:00 am central).

  • October 27, 2020 at 1:47 PM

    Why is “Christmas Unwrapped” not shown after October 25? There are two months before Christmas. We are missing a great chance to see it.

    • December 3, 2020 at 1:13 AM

      Hi Frances. It says Chritmas Unwrapped will be on again on December 6th at 10:00a.m. I hope you get to watch it.

    I love Lifetime Christmas movies. Wished you’d show them throughout the year. Since Hallmark is showing Christmas in July, I hope you will feature Christmas movies during the month also!!!
