Burnt out on Hallmark Christmas movies? Lifetime will also be airing some of its own holiday rom-coms on Dec. 25. And unlike Hallmark, Lifetime has a new movie on the schedule for Christmas Day. 

Writing Around the Christmas Tree stars Krystal Joy Brown as Mikaela, a successful romance novelist who hasn’t been so successful in love. She visits a quaint B&B for a Christmas writer’s retreat, where she meets a dashing writer named Levi (Curtis Hamilton), who convinces her that she has no business writing about love if she doesn’t go out and experience it herself. It airs at 8 p.m. ET. 

Other Lifetime Christmas movies airing on Dec. 25 include Merry Liddle Christmas, Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding, and Merry Liddle Christmas Baby, all starring Kelly Rowland. Plus, you can also watch Christmas on the Menu, A Taste of Christmas, and Mistletoe in Montana. 

Over on GAC Family, you can watch the “Great American Christmas Countdown,” which features the new channel’s top 10 Christmas movies of 2021, all airing commercial-free.
