The holiday season is here again. If you’re like me it’s all about baking cookies, drinking hot cocoa and watching all things Christmas on Hallmark Channel. To say I’m obsessed with Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies is an understatement. Not only do I have most of my favorite movies saved on DVR, I also tune in during the summer for Christmas in July. And although we’re not even at Halloween, the Christmas spirit is already in the air. This year is poised to be their best season yet with more new movies, a radio channel on SiriusXM and festive Hallmark Channel inspired gifts.
The Hallmark Channel 24/7 holiday movie line up begins October 26th. This year, the channel is set to debut 24 new original Hallmark Christmas movies starring some of your favorite stars. Most movies debut on Saturday or Sunday nights at 8 p.m./7 p.m, with the exception of those scheduled on Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas and New Years.
