A year ago this month in my post ‘Christmas Movies‘, I wrote the following –
Okay, I admit it – I am a sucker for those made for TV Christmas movies!
Do you know what I am referring to?
The Lifetime Channel Christmas movies –
Holiday Switch, Holiday Baggage, Christmas on Chestnut Street, A Very Married Christmas, Nothing Like The Holidays, All She Wants For Christmas, Holly’s Holiday, Home By Christmas, and the list goes on.
The Hallmark Channel Christmas movies –
A Royal Christmas, The Christmas Ornament, Moonlight And Mistletoe, A Coral Christmas, Love’s Christmas Journey, Naughty Or Nice, The National Tree, and the list goes on.
In today’s post, I write the following –
Okay, I admit it – I am still a sucker for those made for TV Christmas movies!
As I did last year, I am watching those made for TV Christmas movies again this year!
I can’t help it, I must watch these movies this time of year and started watching them before Halloween. I watch several each week including the following –
My Christmas Dream, The Mistletoe Promise, Christmas Cookies, A December Bride, Broadcasting Christmas, Love You Like Christmas, My Christmas Love, and the list goes on.
huffingtonpost.com article 11 Reasons to Watch Hallmark Christmas Movies includes the following –
I wanted something sweet when I have given up sweets. Can one get cavities from watching TV?
I wanted romance. I have written a few things down for my husband that seem to work in these movies. Like one must go ice skating and fall down. No problem there. Apparently lying about your identity is also very romantic. I’ve tried to tell my husband I’m Nigella Lawson, but no spectacular gifts seem to be arriving addressed to “Nigella.”
I wanted to see the real meaning of Christmas. I do love how these movies just make me think everyone loves each other. Really. You just have to wait until Christmas.
I wanted to feel connected to humanity. At least, I’d like to be connected to Hallmark Humanity. These are nice people. They give you cookies and hot cocoa and show up at your house at all hours of the day and night to make sure you’re okay.
I wanted to uncomplicate life. Who wouldn’t want to live in a Hallmark town? You either work in a coffee shop, a gift shop, play Santa or get the promotion of your dreams. And every town has a cute skating rink and Christmas carolers.

For me the reason I watch these movies – these holiday movies make me happy and fill my heart with joy.
