This weekend I am watching some good movies. As many channels are broadcasting awesome Christmas themed movies to restore your faith and believe in yourself and the miracles of the Lord, many wonderful movies are relayed by Hallmark. If you remember your favourite Hallmark Greetings online site where you can send beautiful greeting cards to family and friends, is the same brand streaming movies.
From October last weekend until January 1st 2019, Hallmark Channel runs a seasonal block called Countdown to Christmas, featuring a mix of holiday movies, specials and holiday-themed original programming. The block is branded as Countdown to New Years from December 26th until January 1st and culminates with the channel’s broadcast of the Tournament of Roses Parade.
Countdown to Christmas started in 2009, while the channel’s first holiday original movie was aired in 2000. Hallmark characters, Hoops & Yoyo, hosted Friday “Movie Night”, starting in 2009 during the Countdown. Countdown had 12 original movies in 2013 and 21 in 2016.
In 2014, the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Cards collaborated for the first time on a movie, Northpole, which was shown during Countdown to Christmas. During the 2017 holiday season, the Hallmark Channel premiered 33 original Christmas holiday films, up from a total of 28 holiday movies in 2016. Hallmark has a total of 136 Christmas holiday-themed movies in their original library of films.
For 2018, Hallmark Channel partnered with Sirius XM to launch “Hallmark Channel Radio”—a Christmas music channel hosted by Hallmark Channel and featuring behind-the-scenes features relating to Countdown to Christmas programming.
The Hallmark Channel is an American pay television network that is owned by Crown Media Holdings, Inc., which in turn is owned by Hallmark Cards, Inc. So if you want to watch some good movies with your family and friends and have the feel and look of Christmas season then here are the six upcoming Christmas Hallmark movies of miracles, blessings and faith to watch this weekend.

She’s forced to team up with advertising campaign “fixer” Max (Cassidy), who has a completely different take on the holidays, but as Elle and Max work together and learn more about each other’s Christmas traditions, they unexpectedly find themselves falling for each other.
