Great American Family is back with even more for its original Christmas movie lineup for the holidays.

With autumn upon us, we’re even closer to the holiday season and the channel, Great American Family, is getting ready to kick off its annual event titled “Great American Christmas”, which features original Christmas movies premiering every weekend. In addition to this, Christmas films will be on the air, “24/7 throughout the end of the year.” In its second year, it has increased by 50%.

Every weekend will feature a new film, and there look to be numerous choices and a variety of stories to fit every person’s taste. All new film premieres will air at 8 p.m. ET.

First up, on October 22, there’s Destined at Christmas. The characters of Kim and Theo meet with a spark during Black Friday shopping, but after they get separated following a power outage, it’ll take, “a little Christmas magic and destiny to bring them back together.” Many can relate to the idea of meeting someone amazing by happenstance and losing touch with them, so this film sure looks to be one to garner attention for its relatable quality.

There’s Catering Christmas on October 29 where the character of Molly Frost gets a gig that can help her struggling catering career by working for the annual Christmas Gala dinner for the Harrison Foundation. Frost soon develops feelings for Carson, the nephew of Jean Harrison, director of the Harrison Foundation, who is assigned in making sure all goes well with the dinner, leading to a more complicated situation. Any film when things get complicated is always one to grab one’s attention.

From the inclusion of an athletic woman to seeing how much has changed with the passage of time since high school, both films look to have storylines that warm the heart.

A Merry Christmas Wish on November 12 has an advertising executive from NYC selling her hometown family farm which soon becomes the site for the annual Winter Wonderland in the town, an event she’s running with a childhood friend. This is a film that can relate to anyone who returns home after being born and raised in a small town and moving away to the big city.
