Freeform Kickoff to Christmas (2021)

The countdown to Christmas is finally here. No list of Christmas movies season is complete without Freeform’s kickoff to Christmas schedule for 2021.

Do you watch Freeform’s Kickoff to Christmas every year? Well, I have the schedule for you.

I love Winter. It’s an extra reason to spend some much-needed quality time with my family. 

Freeform has announced they are doing a movie line-up pre-Christmas. Every day in November they are showcasing multiple movies that are perfect for family night. These are not heavy on holiday but great family-friendly options still.
