It’s a Hallmark Christmas

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. – Agnes M. Pahro

If you are like me, you cannot wait for the holidays. As soon as Fall is within reach you are putting out your pumpkins and decorating your home to welcome the change of season. Soon thereafter you are decorating for Halloween! I don’t know if you do like I do, but I tend to go out for every season. The last few years have been a downer because we’ve flooded twice in the past 3 years; so some holidays have failed in the decoration department. I know one thing for sure, the weekend after Thanksgiving and sometimes the very next day is dedicated to decorating for Christmas. While I love all the holiday’s, Christmas is my FAVORITE! I decorate my 8 foot tree that can barely fit my ceiling with the star on top, I place my Nutcrackers all over the house, and this year – I am ordering a couple of extra trees to place around the house and decorate because we are HOME! Oh yeah, I have already started Nutcracking hunting as well. I may have a little obsession with those little statues. Last year, we were in a shoe box apartment sharing walls with loud neighbors, and I believe Hagrid from Harry Potter lived upstairs. Prayerfully, nothing keeps me from enjoying my holiday or my Hallmark in the comfort of my own walls this year.

There is something else I look forward to during the holiday season, and that is the wonderful world of Hallmark and the beautiful Christmas movies they give us each year. I was a little scared this year that with the pandemic we would have to recycle previous years movies. Which would not be a problem at all because they always give us the best! However, Hallmark with their ever giving spirit has gifted us with a list of new movies that I believe will definitely put us in the holiday mood, get us out of our heads of the year that has been 2020, and help us to look forward to the New Year…which I personally think we should be able to get a preview of. I wonder if Hallmark could make that happen in their final Christmas movie this year? Dear Hallmark, can you make that happen?

Thanks to myEntertainment Weekly subscription, I was able to get a glimpse of the joy and wonder we would experience via Hallmark and their holiday lineup. We will see a lot of our favorite actors within the Hallmark family and some newcomers as well. What would a Hallmark movie be without Candace Cameron Bure, Barbara Nevin, Benjamin Ayers, Ashley Williams, Niall Matter, Catherine Bell, Holly Robinson Pete, and Allison Sweeney. That is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more regulars and newcomers that I am sure will wow us in there performances. You will be happy to know that Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries “Miracles of Christmas” campaigns will start a week before Halloween on October 23. We will get the adventures of going back in time, holiday romances, homecomings, a charming little inn, and so much more in the 40 films set to air through December. So without further delay, let me deck the halls with the list of movies and when you can expect to see them.
