Also this year, Hanukkah will be featured in Lifetime's Mistletoe & Menorahs (which premieres December 7). It will star Kelley Jakle and Jake Epstein, and the plot goes something like this: When a determined toy company executive, Christy (Jakle), must learn about Hanukkah in a hurry in order to land a big account, she enlists the help of her co-worker's friend Jonathan (Epstein), who happens to also be in desperate need of turning his bachelor pad into a Christmas Wonderland to impress his girlfriend's father. After butting heads, they realize they need each other's holiday expertise and quickly appreciate one another's cultures and each other. As they spend more time together, they realize they have more in common and a holiday romance lights up. Can't wait.Courtesy of Marvista Entertainment
Then, in a Christmas Love Letter (premiering December 21), relationship advice columnist Amalie (Ashley Newbrough) receives an unsigned love letter and tries to solve the mystery of who sent it. Maybe she'll find true love in the process? The film also stars Tilky Jones, Chanté Bowser, and Izzy Herbert.Lifetime
Rounding out the new films is A Date by Christmas Eve on December 22, in which Chelsea, a good-hearted brand strategist for a popular dating app, discovers the app has given her magical powers. (Where's that when I need it?) She uses her newfound ability to make all the naughty people in her life learn how to be good again. Of course, nothing goes as planned; and in a twist reminiscent of The Good Place, a kind neighbor is added to the naughty list, forcing Chelsea to fix things before time runs out. The film stars Vanessa Lengies, Evan Williams, Katherine Bailess, Julie McNiven, and Morgan Fairchild.
