Best Hallmark Christmas Movies from 2022

Hallmark is known for delivering a lot of new movies for each Countdown to Christmas season. In 2022, Hallmark gave fans a schedule of 40 movies with a mix of new and familiar faces, captivating storylines, and of course, the signature happy ending. Here are our picks for best Hallmark Christmas movies from 2022:

The Royal Nanny – Meet Claire, the MI5 operative turned royal nanny, who’s on a mission to keep the regal family safe and sound this holiday season. But as she faces one obstacle after another, including the irresistible charms of Prince Colin, will Claire be able to complete her mission and keep her heart in check?

Rachel Skarsten is an absolute stand out in this movie (as well as 2023’s Christmas Island). This is a fun and different kind of story for Hallmark, especially during the Christmas season.

A Holiday Spectacular – It’s 1958 and Maggie’s got gutsy plans to make her dreams a reality. She’s headed to the Big Apple, where she’ll shimmy her way onto the grand stage of Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas Spectacular. 

This is a must-see film: Written by the Talented Julie Sherman Wolfe and Starring Ginna Claire Mason
This movie is a real knockout! From the stunning visuals to the captivating costumes, it’s a feast for the eyes. Set in New York City, it’s impossible not to be transported.

Haul Out the Holly – Emily returns home with the intention of visiting her parents, but discovers they are planning a trip of their own. As a result, Emily will be spending the holidays at home. However, her Homeowners Association (HOA) has other plans and is eager to involve Emily in the neighborhood’s Christmas celebrations.

Join the one and only Queen of Hallmark, Lacey Chabert, and a star-studded cast in a holiday adventure chock-full of laughs, a few hijinks, and even a special surprise cameo from one of Hallmark’s favorites!

Three Wise Men and a Baby – When three brothers suddenly find themselves in charge of a baby over the holidays, they’re thrown into a world of diapers and bottles. But as they embark on this unexpected journey, they also find themselves reconnecting as brothers, and reigniting their passion for the most wonderful time of the year.

Stars Tyler Hynes, Andrew Walker, and Paul Campbell. That’s all you need to know.

Noel Next Door – Follow one mother’s journey as she faces off with a neighbor hell-bent on ruining Christmas. But, as fate would have it, this grinch might just melt her heart in all the right ways.

This was one of Hallmark Channel’s 2022 sleeper hits. Natalie Hall shines and Corey Sevier gives a moving performance.
