List Rules Vote up the best holiday and Christmas films from Lifetime movies.

Lifetime Movies have more to offer than intense storylines and films that are based on true stories. When the winter holiday season comes around they're ready to compete with the Hallmark Channel with a lineup of good Christmas movies, many of which are available to watch online. This list includes both original Lifetime Christmas movies and Lifetime Acquired Holiday movies that have become part of the "It's A Wonderful Lifetime" winter holiday lineup.

Lifetime Movies has been making Christmas films since it was the Lifetime Movie Network in the 1990s. Ebbie, a version of A Christmas Carol where Susan Lucci plays a Scrooge-like character, premiered in 1995. Lifetime may have made added the most Christmas movies to their collection in 2018 with films like A Very Nutty Christmas starring Melissa Joan Heart and Every Day Is Christmas starring Toni Braxton. They balance romantic Christmas movies, such as Wrapped Up In Christmas or My Christmas Prince, with Christmas dramas - like Home by Christmas which stars Linda Hamilton as a rich woman who finds herself homeless. Lifetime Christmas movies even have plenty of options that are light on both romance and drama, opting to have some fun for the holiday with movies like Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

Romantic, dramatic or just fun - whether they're Lifetime Original Movies or acquired originals that are joining the stables, which are the best Lifetime Christmas movies?
