Let's be honest with one another, shall we? The autumn/Halloween season is great and all, but it's a placeholder season — at best. As far as I'm concerned, there really are only two seasons: summer and Christmas.

Luckily, the good folks at Hallmark seem to feel the exact same way. So if you, like me, are looking to make your life a little more merry and bright, have a look below at Hallmark's 2022 Christmas movie lineup.

Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas officially begins on October 21st.

That might seem a bit early to be getting your holly jollies off, but keep in mind that Hallmark's "Countdown to Christmas" movie lineup consists of 40 different holiday flicks.

You can also expect to see a happy host of your favorite yuletide stars making their merry return to the little/big screen.

Network favorites such as Alison Sweeney, Holly Robinson Peete, Jodie Sweetin, Jonathan Bennett, Luke Macfarlane, and Tamera Mowry-Housley are all slated to star in brand-new holiday romances.

This season also marks a record-setting achievement for Hallmark regular, Lacey Chabert.
