2021 Hallmark Christmas Movies Based On Books

Sharing is caring!

We love Hallmark Christmas movies as much as the next girl. In fact, I might be watching one as I write this post (ok, I’m definitely watching one).

But you know what they say… the book is always better than the movie!

That got us wondering – are any of the Hallmark Christmas movies based on books? It turns to out that a lot of them are, so we did what we do best… we compiled a list! 

This list of holiday Hallmark movies based on novels could go on an on, but since we know half the fun is watching the movie after you finish the book, we’ve limited our list to 20 book-inspired Hallmark movies that are airing throughout the 2021 Christmas season. We’ve even included a schedule of when each movie will be on TV. The currently available air dates are listed below each book, and we’ll continue to update the schedule as Hallmark releases the December air dates.
