Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas

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.

  • Gail says:

    I love watching your Christmas shows any time. I wish you would have a Hallmark Christmas channel that would play only your Christmas shows. All of them even from years and years ago.

  • Barbara says:

    I have loved Hallmark for years and years. NATURAL, clean movies for the whole family.
    However, I promise you this if you change the “agenda” I will never watch it again. I wont be the only one.

  • Cyd says:

    I like the Golden Girls when they are on before 11:00 PM CST. I’m not in to Christmas in July at all but would tolerate it for others sakes if I could have my Golden Girls to relax me for bed each night. Why can’t you compromise and do that? I find Christmas movies depressing and you play enough of them from October to January. Your schedule said Christmas stuff would be done at end of July but I’m seeing it going into August. Maybe you should just make one of your 3 channels an all year round Christmas channel so those of us who don’t need reminders that we are alone can watch things that make us laugh.

  • Judy Sellers says:

    Any chance to get Christmas movies say once a week during year on Hallmark? That would be so awesome!! Thanks for Christmas in July.

    • Chaz says:

      Hallmark is showing a Christmas movie every Friday evening. Check your local listings for an exact time. They are also showing Christmas movies every Thursday evening at 9:00 PM on their Movies & Mysteries channel.

  • Janene says:

    Please show “A Christmas Melody” this 2020 Christmas season. It’s my favorite. Thanks.

  • Teresa Schumachet says:

    Please play some of older movies they are all so good. Please show Stranded in Paradise. Thank You

  • Joanne says:

    Why doesn’t Hallmark ever show The Christmas Train. Had actors that were in ‘A’ movies. Was great to see them on Hallmark. In my opinion, it was a very good movie.

    • Kim says:

      Hi Joanne: If you have Comcast, you can search it and play it for free to Me. You can also click on watch options and it gives you options of 2 channels to watch it on, one being Hallmark (available until 7/31/20). I love that movie as well. I even thought the commercials were heartfelt.

      I am a Christmas Movie Lover. I think I watched about 80 Christmas movies last year on every channel I could find them. When I retired this year, my job gave me a blanket from Hallmark that says Hallmark Christmas Movie Watching Blanket. I hope you get to watch it.

  • Judy says:

    Why don’t you show “A Bride for Christmas” more often. And not at 2:00 or 4:00 in the morning.

  • John says:

    Trying to remember the name of the movie about two friends switch homes for Christmas. One from New York and the other is from the country. Both find love at Christmas.
    Anybody know the name?

    • Mike says:

      The movie is called “Finding Christmas”

    • Sue Sims says:

      Finding Christmas — Sean, a New York adman, swaps his swanky loft for an aspiring musician’s North Carolina cottage after a proposal gone wrong leads him to find a holiday escape. Sparks fly when he meets single mother Ryan. On the other end of the swap, singer Owen is charmed by Sean’s sassy assistant, Mia. As these singles open up their homes, they also unexpectedly open up their hearts for the romantic possibilities in store this Christmas. —Tricia Helfer, J. T. Hodges, Mark Lutz, Christina Rosato —Original Broadcast: 12/15/2013

    • Chaz says:

      There are two, actually. This is the other: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2008491/reference

  • Tony C says:

    If at anytime we need Christmas it’s now With Covid Racial Unrest Unemployment the Christmas Season should be alive in our hearts

  • Mary Jackson says:

    I am paying for 3 separate Hallmark channels.Not cheap either. I really get tired of paying and seeing the same thing over and over such asd Waltons, Golden Girls, Magnum etc. Please show more movies on Movies and Mysteries and Hallmark Drama. Love my Hallmark channel but just don’t like the same thing over and over.

  • Corlisa says:

    What about A Season for Miracles it’s been a while since I’ve seen it.

  • Jozette Williams says:

    Im all in on Christmas anytime, especially now!

  • Crystal says:

    I love Hallmark Christmas movies. I can watch them anytime of the year. Thanks Hallmark.

  • Really up[sert that the movie we were watching from 7:00 to 9:00pm eat tonight is to be continued. Who knows when the 2nd half will be on? Felt like we wasted 2 hours.

  • Jay says:

    How the virus stopped them from producing 2020 holiday movies??

  • LC says:

    Love watching hallmark movies, especially the Christmas movies! I look forward to seeing them on TV and cannot get enough. It’s great seeing them on TV right now and helps lift everyone’s spirits. Hallmark you are amazing!

  • Margaret says:

    It’s been a relief to watch something cheerful at this time
    with all the bad news about the virus.
    Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. It give people faith and hope.
    It bring out the best in people. We need that right now.
    We need to pray and have faith that this virus will past.

      You have to pay for the Hallmark Channel? I live in Monterey County, California. I have Comcast/Xfinity/whatever they call it, and all three Hallmark Channels and UPTV are included. Of course, TV, Internet and voice is $280/month…
