‘Dear Christmas’ Preview

Melissa Joan Hart Hosts: It's a Wonderful Lifetime Preview Special | LifetimeWhat if Lifetime never made Christmas movies? In this special, hosted by Melissa Joan Hart, we will be taken on a journey that explores how terrible life would be without Lifetime Christmas movies to bring us holiday cheer.

Dear Christmas stars Melissa Joan Hart, Jason Priestley, Robin Givens, Ed Begley Jr., Faith Prince, and Nicky Whelan with cameos by Jamie & Doug Hehner, Hilarie Burton, and Antwon Tanner.

Hart plays Natalie Morgan, an author and host of a popular podcast, “Holiday Love,” which shares true stories of holiday romance with its listeners. While to the outside world and her listeners everywhere see Natalie is an expert on romance, she’s never truly experienced a romance of her own. As Natalie prepares to embark on a promotional tour for her new book, she stops back home to spend Christmas with her family and to celebrate her parent’s 50th anniversary where she unexpectedly begins to experience her own holiday romance as sparks ignite with local firefighter, Jack (Jason Priestley).

Christmas is a special time of year for Hart. She recently told the Television Critics Association about her favorite Christmas, which was the year she got engaged on Christmas.

“I have a very big family and we were all together in L.A. and celebrating Christmas, and my boyfriend was supposed to come home the next day and he came back and we had our Christmas by the tree on the 26th so it was a day after but I got a ring and I got married — just the memory of getting engaged on Christmas by the tree and opening the presents … So it was my last like kind of childhood Christmas combined with me moving forward as an adult and having my own Christmas with my family now,” said Hart.

She also said that she loves doing Christmas movies because it’s so much fun to give people all the warm, fuzzy holiday feelings.

“I love doing them because they do give people a good, happy feeling … people want this season to be a season of easy, happy joy. You know from whatever is going on in our real lives,” said Hart.

Finally, she divulged that her go-to Christmas party move is the tacky holiday sweater.

“I tend to be the tacky sweater girl.I just do the tacky sweaters. I go to eBay,” she said with a laugh.

Dear Christmas premieres Friday, November 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
