Unless you’re completely avoiding all things Christmas as if your life depended on it, you’re probably at least aware of the fact that holiday movies are a big deal for many people. This is especially true for the variety of holiday movies made for television, with Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies dominating the airwaves for more than a month before the actual holidays. . Former Sabrina the Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart has been in several of these films now and has explained why she continues to make lifelong Christmas movies.
Melissa Joan Hart is preparing for the release of her latest lifelong Christmas movie, Mistletoe in Montana, on December 17, and while talking to TV Insider about the project she was asked why she keeps coming back. on the net for your vacation. This marks his fifth consecutive year starring in a lifelong Christmas movie, and it turns out that Hart is a fan of the style, as he noted:
They allow us to get a little more out of the formula, I think. There’s a little more comedy.
While Hart made his first holiday film of his life in 2014 (this is The Santa Con, where he starred in Barry Watson and Jaleel White), it wasn’t until A Very Merry Toy Store in 2017 that he began the journey to help him. offers the annual Christmas joy to Lifetime viewers. And from watching their movies and several of the other channel deals, I can confirm that they tend to rely heavily on comedy if they’re going to present funny things.

Speaking of this beloved formula, there’s something that viewers of all these Christmas movies should see, no matter what happens, and Hart believes that Lifetime always manages to deliver it, even though it’s still a long way off. typical rules applied. She continued:
People want a happy ending for Christmas. They want to know that the girl is getting the boy. It’s hard to get away from that when you’ve been working for so many years.
YES, Melissa Joan Hart! Yes, we want our HEA (happy forever) at the end of the Christmas movie of a lifetime! And, if we have to see that you and your movie pretender are going through the wrong identity issues, communication errors, weird Christmas magic and / or mistakes to get there, even better.
