AMC and AMC+ will again celebrate the holiday season with the return of "Best Christmas Ever," a month-long celebration featuring over 62 titles and more than 622 hours of holiday season programming beginning November 27 and running through December 25.

AMC kicks off "Best Christmas Ever" with Love Actually and Christmas With the Kranks and will be the exclusive broadcast cable home in December for some of today's most cherished holiday favorites, including Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Four Christmases, The Polar Express, and Fred Claus. Additionally, fans of the Yuletide season can enjoy classics and fan-favorite films like Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, Rankin/Bass titles, Planes Trains & Automobiles, and much more.

As previously announced, AMC+ will serve as the exclusive streaming home to the original film Christmas with the Campbells, which premieres in theaters and streaming on Friday, December 2. A new spin on the traditional holiday rom-com from Vince Vaughn (Fred Claus), Peter Billingsley (A Christmas Story), and Dan Lagana (American Vandal), the film stars Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect), Justin Long (He's Not That Into You), Alex Moffat (Saturday Night Live), Joanna Garcia Swisher (Sweet Magnolias), Julia Duffy (Newhart, Designing Women), and George Wendt (Cheers).

In Christmas with the Campbells, when Jesse (Snow) gets dumped right before the holidays by her boyfriend Shawn (Moffat), his parents (Duffy and Wendt) convince her to still spend Christmas with them, and Shawn's handsome cousin (Long), while Shawn is away.

Other holiday films on AMC+ in December include the premieres of Shudder slasher Christmas Bloody Christmas (in theaters and on AMC+ December 9), new Anna Gunn thriller The Apology (in theaters and on AMC+ December 16), and holiday romance Saving Christmas Spirit (December 23), as well as last year's #1 AMC+ Exclusive film premiere Silent Night.
