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 2024.

    Are there any plans to make another movie(s) starring Katie Findlay and Wyatt Nash. These two show a lot of chemistry and been in two great movies, The Bridge and Love Strikes Twice which were both very enjoyable. These two actors seem to work very well together

    My husband and I love Hallmark especially the Christmas movies. One of our favorites is the Christmas Card. Will you be airing it in 2023? We had it on our DVR to watch over and over but for some reason it is no longer there. Please let me know. Please consider putting it on this year. Hallmark and Hallmark Mysteries are our go to show. Thanking you in advance. Ann Adams

    I noticed scenes from “A Holiday Spectacular” were used in advertising the summer 2023 Hallmark ‘Christmas movies’ — when is it airing? I don’t see it listed with Christmas in July titles… ???
