Whether you like it or not, the holiday season is officially here. The snow definitely makes it feel a little festive here in the Hudson Valley.

If you're looking for that Hudson Valley Christmas cheer in a warmer place then all you really have to do is turn on your tv. On Monday, November 19th, the Hallmark Movie Channel will be premiering Last Vermont Christmas that filmed in Rhinebeck last year.

There's another holiday movie that will most definitely put a smile on your face especially if you're a fan One Tree Hill. An added plus? This one also has a Hudson Valley connection.

One of our favorites actress Hilarie Burton will be starring in a new Lifetime Christmas movie called the Christmas Contract. You can set your DVR's for Thanksgiving night, November 22nd at 8pm when the Christmas Contract airs followed by One Tree Hill reunion.

The Christmas Contract not only stars Burton, but fellow Tree Hill cast members Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles and Antwon Tanner.

If you missed it recently Hilarie, along with local companies and volunteers, renovated yet another wing to Astor. Take a look at the before and after pictures here.

Don't miss The Christmas Contract on Thursday night at 8pm on Lifetime.
