Lifetime Reveals 2020 Christmas Movie Plans

The holiday season might be the last thing anyone is thinking of right now, but Lifetime is looking further ahead than the rest of us by already announcing some of the planned projects in the works for their 2020 Christmas movie season.

After pulling off their most ambitious holiday season yet in 2019 by starting a 24/7 marathon of movie in October and premiering over 30 new titles, the cable channel is already starting to lay some groundwork for what could potentially be an even bigger event for 2020. While production on the different projects is in “various stages,” any production has been shut down due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, with dates to resume not yet determined. Still, work that doesn’t need to be done in front of the camera is in full swing.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the network has made a big score when it comes to casting the lead of one of their still-untitled projects. Betty White has signed on to star in a project where her character “helps ready would-be Santas for the holidays. But a mystery looms: Is she actually Mrs. Claus?”

However, the White-led film isn’t the only one that the network revealed, with some favorite stars from past films once again starring in new holiday movies. Kelly Rowland, who made her debut in 2019 in “Merry Liddle Christmas” is set to star in a sequel film in 2020 titled “Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding.” Meanwhile, Melissa Joan Hart, who previously starred in the network’s “Santa Con,” “A Very Merry Toy Store,” “A Very Nutty Christmas,” and “Christmas Reservations,” will step behind the camera to direct the potentially titled “Felix NaviDad.” That film is set to star Mario Lopez, who previously starred with Hart in “Toy Store,” as well as “Holiday in Handcuffs” for ABC Family (now Freeform).

I watched Rise of the Guardians last week and it did the trick.  Love that not just Santa is trusted with protecting the innocence of children throughout the globe in this.

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

    • Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?
      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
