There's nothing better than cuddling up on the couch in cozy pajamas with your favorite drink and tuning into a Christmas movie on the Hallmark Channel. Yes, they *all* have the same plotline and I'm willing to bet on how each one ends, but there's just something about the holiday spirit, a little magic and a happily ever after that sucks you in.

We've got some good news, mama: You can start enjoying these holiday movies now...as in before Halloween even arrives.

The lineup officially starts on October 22 and features 31 original movies this year!


Of course, movies from seasons past will be playing all day long too, but most of the new ones will premiere on Saturdays and Sundays. Cancel my weekend plans for the rest of the year, please.

Here's a little sample of what you have to look forward to in October and November:
