New Winter & Christmas Movies 2017 - Theaters/DVD


I've made a list (and I checked it twice--for real) of all the brand new movies you can watch in theaters or at home on DVD/rental this Christmas season! We're getting pretty spoiled this year; I don't remember seeing so many holiday movies in theaters in 2016. Hopefully it's a growing trend!

Also, I know lots of you are interested in the brand new Christmas TV movies from Hallmark, Lifetime, ION, etc. but there were SO MANY this year that I'll have to make a separate post for them. Not a bad thing, if you ask me! Keep your eyes peeled for that list. It'll be an impressive one.
