It’s officially time to slip on those cozy socks and whip up some hot cocoa: holiday movies have arrived.

The family-friendly original flicks are getting an early jump on the season and begin airing on Oct. 25. (Sorry, Halloween!) And then, over the two months that follow, nearly 100 new holiday-themed movies will debut across the Hallmark Channel, Lifetime, UPtv, Netflix, OWN, and more.

Stars like Rob Lowe, Marie Osmond, Hilarie Burton, Vanessa Williams, Vanessa Hudgens, Candace Cameron Bure, and so many others are surrounding themselves with snowmen, twinkle lights, and sweet mistletoe-inspired kisses to help get us into the holiday spirit this year — so we’ll let them get to it.

Below is the complete list of all 96 original holiday movies coming to TV this year. (Don’t have cable but can’t miss a Lifetime movie? Sling carries the channel as well.)

Note: This does not include holiday specials, special episodes, tree lightings, or even holiday series like Netflix’s Merry Happy Whatever (starring Dennis Quaid and Ashley Tisdale, launching Nov. 28).
