Hallmark Channel Announces a New Original Special

The 'Home & Family Holiday Special' helps viewers celebrate the holidays

The 'Home & Family Holiday Special' will air Monday, Nov. 25.

The Home & Family Holiday Special, starring Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare, will air on the Hallmark Channel Monday, Nov. 25 at 8 p.m. with an encore on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 10 a.m.

The special will feature Steines and Ferrare celebrating the holidays with live entertainment, celebrity guests, recipes, crafts, and a tree-lighting ceremony. We can expect to see celebrities like Emmy Award-winning actor Kellie Martin, Daytime Emmy-nominated actor Cameron Mathison, veteran TV actor Candace Cameron Bure, six-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Naomi Judd, and Golden Globe nominee Nicollette Sheridan.

The special will also feature amazing musical performances and even a special festive ice rink will be set up in the Home & Family’s yard for a performance by the phenomenal Los Angeles Ice Theater Company.   

The Home & Family Holiday Special would not be complete without Ferrare's famous turkey dinner recipe — a personal favorite of Oprah’s — while Steines shares holiday success secrets with the viewers.

To get excited for the show, Ferrare shared with us a delicious turkey soup recipe from her cookbook Big Bowl of Love: Delight Family and Friends with More Than 150 Simple, Fabulous Recipes.
