Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas Schedule

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. “Christmas Fridays” on Hallmark is continuing in 2023.

    It’s ridiculous to show only Christmas movies starting in October. Totally ridiculous.

    Look up the movie on internet (not under Hallmark). This movie says Saturday, December 24th at 4:00. Sometimes the time is wrong so I scour the days around info given just to make sure of date and time. FYI: the date is usually correct; time varies. Don’t waste time looking under “Hallmark” UNLESS it’s a specific Hallmark schedule.

          CMT usually airs that, my cable package does not include CMT, but that’s one of my favorites too so I’ve looked.

    I cannot find the movie title that involved the Chicago Chef/Author looking for the “perfect” gingerbread cookie recipe. She posts a contest, and ends up at The Homestead Bakery with Kris, his daughter Abi, and his mother. Can you help? Please! Thank you.

    Why is it that most of your Hanukkah movies have to be bought or rented? How do I find them? How about Countdown to Hanukkah since it starts on Dec. 18th well before Christmas? Lots and Lots of Christmas movies shown over and over.

    Too much too soon. Do you executives not think that some of us are already tired of the same old lame Christmas movies that run for almost 2 months. Give it a freaking rest. I am not trying to be a Karen here but honestly, Halloween isn’t even here yet nor is Thanksgiving here and you are shoving this stuff down our throats.
