Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas
From the last weekend in October until January 1st, Hallmark Channel runs the seasonal block called Countdown to Christmas, featuring a mix of holiday movies, specials and holiday-themed original programming. Countdown to Christmas officially began in 2009, while the channel’s first holiday original movie was aired in 2000. Since 2012, the network has also held a “Christmas in July” event with airings of previous movies. In February 2019, it was announced that in honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Countdown to Christmas event, the channel would air selections of movies on Friday nights throughout the year. This is continuing in 2020.

I love Xmas movies but I can watch them beginning on Thanksgiving Day not before Halloween.
Leave movies mysteries open as a break from some of the xmas movies.
i would like to see some of old movies mix with new movies ,like new movie showing then a old movie showing ,,,etc the old movies are the best
GOOD IDEA on old movies – old 30s 40s – the best
and bring Fraiser back
these same same same OMG 24 hr same movies
I agree, they seem to be playing just the movies from the last year or two mostly and there are many that were from a little earlier that I wish they would play. Some may be on Movies and Mysteries but that is not available for our area without special equipment.
Watching any Hallmark Christmas movie any more is like listening to Handel’s “Messiah” performed by other choirs and expecting something different.
Boring, mundane and formulaic. Exactly what the middle American mentality can cope with.
November Christmas and silver bell these are best Christmas movies of all time and you not show them .should show new Christmas with the old mix the up
I too would love to see more of a mix, there are so many movies in your library. For those of us who love to see all the different movies and do not get the movies & mystery channel, it just doesn’t seem fair.
I would like the “The Christmas Card” to be shown this holiday season.
Hi Bette, Hallmark only airs The Christmas Card on their Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.
Those 2 movies are showing on the Hallmark Movie Channel….565 on Directv, hope this helps.
I have direct tv but my guide does not have channel 565 would I need to order it?
Please bring back the Christmas movies that starred Peter Falk as the Angel Max, and Katy Segal as a lady Angel. They are my favorites. I can’t find them on DVD.
All 3 of them are on dvd look under max the angel on ebay
I am a fan of Catch a Christmas Star – which is airing now, so early in am. I hope you play it again!!
I to am I fan of Catch a Christmas Star, please please play it again but t
Not to early
I am sorry to say that all of your very valid complaints are falling on deaf ears, Apparently, the only concern that Hallmark has is money. The very fact that they created a new channel, in which you must get a upgrade to your cable service to receive it, speaks volumes. Buy the movies that you love, if they are available and forget watching Hallmark. They could care less about their loyal viewers. If you read through the comments, you will see that the same older movies, that really have a beautiful message that depicts the entire reason for the season, are no longer shown e.g. The Christmas Card, Silver Bells, just to mention a few.
Very, very disappointing!!
They really need a competitor that is toned in to the concern of the viewers!!
I agree totally . Want to see some of the older ones on the regular Hallmark channel. The ‘Christmas Card’ especially.
Everyone is not a fan of so much Christmas! A little goes a looooong way. Miss the mysteries!
I miss the mysteries. Too soon for Christmas movies. Same old theme.mimi
My sister and I both love The Christmas Card and even though I have I on DVD I think it should be shown every year for support of our service men. Another is Christmas Visitor. I am a veteran and somewhat old fashioned. These movies make me feel really good inside.
Me too I agree The Christmas Card is my favorite!
The Christmas card is by far one of my families favorite and it should be on more times every Christmas season. The Christmas list should also be brought back.
how about a season for miracles, Christmas in canan, and the ultimate gift? In my opinion these are some of the best.
We love these too, they are airing this year on Hallmark’s other channel Hallmark Movies & Mysteries:
Why isn’t the part two of the Bridge not airing on the regular channel? Seems kinda greedy and cheap to force another channel on people. You gonna pay for the extra cost of it?
I watched The Bridge & The Bridge 2 back to back on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. they had them that way more than once.
Ji agree it is my favorite movie.
My daughter and i love a Hallmark movie called Undercover Christmas from 2003, we love this cute Christmas movie and we cant even buy it. Wish you would bring it back and air it !!! Loved it!!!
Yes, I would love to watch undercover Christmas again!
I love undercover Christmas too and also have looked to buy with no luck. Why hallmark won’t you show and not at 2am
I would love to see the Christmas shepherd come to dvd or see it back on hallmark channel
I agree!! I second that motion!!
