On the Hallmark Channel It’s Practically All Christmas All Year

It was bad enough that the Hallmark Channel decided that we needed a little Christmas in July — just when Walmart was putting up their Halloween decorations — but now it’s all Christmas all the time, straight through to the new year. Beginning Friday, there will be new Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night leading up to the holiday. Most of the movies revolve around the main character coming home to their hometown and falling in love with one of their old flames. They all end with a happy ending and a good Christmas feeling. Yes, they’re a lot the same, and there’s little doubt that Hallmark regulars like Lacey Chabert, Autumn Reeser, Nikki DeLoach, Cameron Mathison, Ryan Paevey and Wes Brown will be recycled through the series of new flicks. So, pop your popcorn, get your hot chocolate ready, and prepare to see nothing but Christmas movies for the rest of the year.
