What has been your favorite aspect of the holiday season thus far? Some might say purchasing gifts while others enjoy decorating.

If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for Lifetime movies and Holiday films. I don’t care how cliche or predictable, I’m here for it. So I was really excited to learn that on Saturday, while we’re eating all of our Thanksgiving leftovers, we can do so while watching Tatyana Ali in a Lifetime Holiday movie called “Dear Secret Santa.”

Shadow and Act reports that the film follows a newly single Jennifer who moves back to her childhood home. While there she is flooded with memories of her friend Jack who recently passed away. One day Jennifer gets a Christmas card in the mail from a secret admirer. Who calls himself her secret santa. The admirer knows personal details about her life and so she decides to write him back. In fact, his letters remind her of her friend Jack. Throughout the movie she tries to determine who’s been writing her.

You can watch the trailer for the film which stars Della Reese, Bill Cobbs and Jordin Sparks.

The film premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, November 30 at 8/7c.

When it comes to black Christmas movies, the list is not that long. But one of the best Christmas movies, featuring brown people, is The Preacher’s Wife. Starring everyone’s favorite singer, Whitney Houston, and favorite actor, Denzel Washington, The Preacher’s Wife was a feel good movie we wanted to see from them. And though many of us were rooting for Denzel and Whitney to at least kiss in the flick, it was still a cute, little holiday movie.
