2015 Holiday TV Movies

It’s the middle of December and I think I have screened dozens of holiday TV movies. I like this time of year for screening movies at home. These made-for-TV films (Hallmark, Lifetime, Ion, UP, etc.) are all warm and fuzzy stories. Many people say they are all the same, but for me they hold a special place. I know, when the final credits roll (however some screeners simply have place card holders for the credits because the films have not been completed) I will feel happy and content.

That’s the reason for holiday films, isn’t it? To make us feel happy and content? This year the crop of movies did not disappoint. There were some that I really enjoyed and want to hold onto for future viewing, and yes, there were a few that were just OK. But they all managed to leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

So, even though they might not be of the caliber of It’s a Wonderful Life, the networks have done a good job with this year’s holiday movies. 

Here are some samples of what I was treated to this season:
