We know it isn't even October yet but that hasn't stopped anyone from thinking about the holidays. 

Halloween announcements began in August thanks to the cooling weather and now, Hallmark has dropped its "Countdown to Christmas" lineup. 

The first film premieres on Saturday, October 26th -- 5 days before Halloween! 

In other words, it's never too early for Christmas. 

There is a new movie each night during the week of Thanksgiving and the lineup commences on Saturday, December 28 with a New Year's Eve-themed movie titled "New Year, New Me."

Hallmark is celebrating the 10th-anniversary of "Countdown to Christmas" so they're promising bigger and more festive offerings in their lineup. 

Earlier this summer, we reported that the cast of One Tree Hill was filming their holiday film. The film stars lead actors Hilarie Burton (Peyton) and Tyler Hilton (Chris Keller). 

There's another One Tree Hill reunion film titled "Write Before Christmas" debuting Thursday, November 28 starring Chad Michael Murray (Lucas Scott) and Chicago PD actress Torrey DeVito (Crazy Nannie Cary/ Natalie Manning).Mark your calend

"Merry and Bright" will star Full House and Fuller House's Jodie Sweetin while Candace Cameron Bure (DJ) stars in Christmas Town airing December 1.
