As the calendar updates in December, you’re looking to bask in the Christmas spirit. It turns out that Hallmark and the Hallmark Movie and Mystery Channels are debuting 40 new holiday movies this year. So there are many occasions where I consider the film the equivalent of a warm sugar cookie.
Since there are so many movies you can watch between these two channels, I’m going to try to present the can’t-miss Hallmark holiday movies for 2022. These are the movies that have premiered this year (20 movies, half of the full slate, have aired since October) and have the highest ratings on IMDB. Below that, you’ll find the full list of new Hallmark Christmas movie offerings for 2022. Grab some eggnog and let’s go.

Noel Next Door got off to a strong start to the season as the first 2022 Hallmark Christmas movie broadcast. The flick follows a single mother named Noelle (Natalie Hall) whose love interest is also the neighborhood “Scrooge.” Tune into this one for a crowd-favorite holiday romance.
The next showtime is November 22nd at 10/9 Central on the Hallmark Channel.
