    'Tis the season for ample holiday movies πŸŽ„!

    Guess what time it is?? If you're thinking "fall" or "spooky season," you're wrong*! It's holiday time, baby, and Netflix just shared the first look at their upcoming Christmas movies!


    *Okay, so you're technically right, but that's not the point.

    First up, Holidate:

    Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey play friends who, frustrated by their families' obsession with their singledom, decide to be each other's dates to all holiday functions throughout the year. They make a pact to keep things strictly platonic, but as time goes on, it becomes clear they should be together always...not just on special occasions.

    Premieres Oct. 28

    This is the rom-com of my heart's desire, and there's a trailer! Check it out below:

    The absolute queen of my life, Christine Baranski, plays a wealthy, disagreeable woman who moves back to her hometown after her father's death to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer. But reconnecting with an old flame and getting guidance from a literal angel, aka Miss Dolly, she has a change of heart just in time to celebrate Christmas.

    Premieres Nov. 22

    There's not a trailer yet, but Dolly released a song of the same name from her upcoming holiday album, A Holly Dolly Christmas! You can check it out below:
