We might live in an ever-changing world, but one thing remains constant: new films, as well as oldies (but goodies), are sure to hit our screen come December. So get that eggnog ready and those Christmas cookies in the oven because Comedy Central just announced part of the lineup for its "31 Days of Going Home for the Holidays" December program. And while we're looking forward to some LOL-worthy classics, our sleigh bells are jingling most for the new content coming our way: A Clüsterfünke Christmas and Hot Mess Holiday.

Comedy Central will release A Clüsterfünke Christmas on December 4th. The film centers around real estate executive, Holly, who makes her way to a small town to purchase the Clüsterfünke Inn. The city gal plans on turning the simple accommodation into a resort but fate has other plans: Holly's attention is captivated by the Inn's current owners. More specifically, their good-looking nephew Frank. But, this is Comedy Central, so A Clüsterfünke Christmas will not be your typical holiday rom-com, but rather a parody of the genre. We're chuckling already.

The upcoming movie is directed by Emmy-nominated director Anna Dokoza and written by comedy legends Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer. Dratch and Gasteyer also act in the new flick, alongside Vella Lovell, Cheyenne Jackson, Ryan McPartlin, and Nils Hognestad. The star-studded project is gearing up to be a comedy success.

Hot Mess Holiday will bring us another sort of comedy that's far from your typical rom-com: the film tells the story of a finance executive who's dumped by her fiance during the Diwali holidays. The exec's BFF is set on making sure her friend has fun despite the heartbreak, and a round of shenanigans comes their way, including a multi-million dollar diamond ring.

With all of these fresh comedies coming our way, this truly feels like the most wonderful time of the year *cue the carols*.
