    Why oh why didn’t we see more of the lead make actor in more of your movies??? This is by far my most favorite of all your holiday movies!
    You seem to use the same actors all the time but not him. Why? The Christmas Card is the only Hallmark movie I want to see during the Holiday Season! With so many Military serving the Holidays I think it would be nice to have more of these type of show.

      I totally agree. I love The Christmas Card, Also the one about the cowboy and and his brother who sang to a family while staying there. Can not remember the title but he and the girl line dance and talk about Orion. Also the one with the two young kids who had a pretend marriage when his parents died. These were so different. My husband does not like mushy movies, but he can tell you exactly how it’s going to end because they are not unique like these 3 were.

      Yes, this would be nice for a follow up of a great love story and the military. John Newton is great in this movie so natural and fluid in his movements and script.

    The Christmas Card has and will always be a special Christmas program for me as it reminds me of what my brother said to me when he got such a card when he was in the service. With all of the service people that will be away from home each year, I believe that it is and always will be a favorite of many people that are affected by the Christmas Season. Thank you for your consideration in showing this wonder show each and every year.

          You don’t stop to think of people who can’t afford another channel from the cable provider or to buy a DVD, probably elderly, maybe veterans. Why the heck can’t you show this movie on a weekend at a decent hour of day on the regular Hallmark channel? I am guessing some suit in a conference room voted in some stupid meeting and that was it! Think if your viewers! If you have this many people asking why don’t you listen. TV is for the viewer not a damn vote in a meeting or some brainfart from some putz in an office!

            My Husband and I are both Army veterans so we have been there and done all of this that The Christmas Card holds so true. Yes, NOW as Senior Citizens we would like it to be shown more frequently at earlier hours like today DEC 10 2017 at 1 PM our time. We really enjoyed seeing the Whole movie at one time. You are right Karen some of us can not afford to buy a DVD or afford another cable channel at our ages and small benefits we receive as Senior citizens. We do enjoy some of the movies the older ones are better MUCH better as they show Heart and Soul where as the new ones for 2017 seems phony even the script lines. Santa Matchmaker is another one we enjoy and I hope the boardmembers will take some of our comments to heart.

    The Christmas Card was supposed to be shown tonight – 7:00 p.m. Eastern, 6:00 p.m. Central. It WAS NOT. Another movie was shown in its place – The Christmas Stocking.

    What happened to the showing of the Christmas Card, why wasn’t it shown and when will it be shown again.? ?????????

        Karen, we love The Christmas Visitor too. Unfortunately, it’s another movie that Hallmark only airs on their Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

          Does anyone know the actor’s name in the movie, The Christmas Card, who is sitting at the lunch counter and pushes the ketchup bottle over to Faith for her French fries…??
