Freeform Christmas Movie Schedule 2020: What Made the List?


The air’s a little chillier, the leaves have started changing, and everyone’s decorations are getting nice and spooky. You know what that means, right? It’s time… to start thinking about Christmas!

Freeform just announced their month-long block of Christmas movies they’ll be airing all throughout the month of November (aka Christmas: Origins). We’ve got bonafide classics like Home Alone, Disney-blessed “seasonal gifts” like Frozen, and, um, The Hunger Games franchise. What do you think Peeta got Katniss for Christmas? A new bow? I’ll take my answer off the air.

Check out Freeform’s full “Kickoff to Christmas” programming block, beginning on November 1, below. And for some more, um, “seasonally appropriate” programming, here’s our favorite Halloween movies of all time.
