I am fully aware that it is only the middle of October, but I cannot contain my excitement because it is Christmas movie time!!!! That’s right! This month marks the start of Hallmark Christmas movies, which are my all-time favorites! Yes, I know that they basically all have the same plot, and I can pretty much predict how they all will end. I have even seen most of them several times already. I don’t care! I love them so much. They get me every single time. I spend my weekends binge watching with tears in my eyes. I don’t know why I get teary when I know how it is going to go, but I do every single time. I cannot wait to watch all of my old favorites and the brand new ones released this year. I fill my DVR with all the new ones, so I don’t miss a single one. I even re-watch them all when they come back on in the summer for Christmas in July. They are just that good.
My husband can’t stand them and rolls his eyes every time he walks in the room and sees me watching another one. My children think I am crazy, but I know that one day they too will love them as much as I do. They do occasionally watch one or two with me, and I can tell that they love it and don’t want to admit it. Seriously, almost every female that I know loves Hallmark Christmas movies. My mom, sister, and I have to watch at least one together when we are all home for Christmas. It is tradition. People even make shirts about it, so I know I am not alone in my obsession with them.
I so have to admit that the Lifetime channel has upped their game, and they are putting out some great Christmas movies too. Some are even right up there with Hallmark’s. I added the Lifetime ones to my repertoire last year, and they are sure to be on my DVR this year as well. I do know that their movies start this month as well, but I couldn’t find a complete schedule all nicely compiled into one graphic like Hallmark has, but you can find the full schedule here. Their Christmas movies start on October 23.
I know that Hallmark Christmas movies are corny, predictable, and a little sappy, but I love them anyway. There is nothing like a good Hallmark movie to really get the spirit of Christmas flowing through your body. It makes me want to decorate the house already. I am so ready! This year they have 23 brand new movies for your entertainment pleasure. Check out the schedule below for all of the new releases and get your DVRs ready! It all starts next week.
