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.

When is Starry Night going to be on?
Enough already. I love Christmas but both Hallmark Channels plus two others is too much. We know how they will end before they start. Please have some mysteries between the Christmas movie marathon.
So happy to see my favorite Hallmark Christmas movie, A Very Merry Mix-Up, will be showing on October 30th. I keep recording it and somehow (my husband), it keeps getting deleted. LoL 😂
Please show “The Nine Kittens of Christmas”. That was such cute movie last year!
are you going to show Magical Christmas Ornaments? I only seen that once and you never showed it again.
The old Christmas movies are the best. Like Ebbie, and Ms. Scrooge and the old Christmas list etc. The newer movies are good but throw some oldies in there.
I love the older Christmas movies.
I had single Santa seeks Mrs Claus and Meet the Santa’s and Matchmaker Santa recorded on DVR but somehow lost them. Would love to see them again and be able to record them again. There are other older Christmas movies I also enjoyed very much.
I would like to see
Holiday in handcuffs
A Christmas visitor
Holiday in Handcuffs my favorite! I have the DVD!
Ditch the golden girls. People watch The Hallmark Channel for love and happy endings. The Golden Girls are neither.
Love the Christmas movies, but would love to see more Scrooge movies… Even the older ones.
Please don’t take The Golden Girls off during Christmas in July!!!!!!!!!!
I truly look forward to watching them daily 🙂
Should show more of the Christmas movies
I agree, show more christmas movies , even the ones just 10 yrs old. We love the simpler, less Hobby Lobby decor and fake clothes models with a perfect life. Thanks
me tooooo!!! but we need some christmas in july too! maybe they keep them for the overnight and you can record and watch during the day
Please bring back Home and Family. That show was always a treat to watch as well as the crafts and recipes they shared. It was fun learning about the stars and their lives.
Also, there are a lot of us Fall Fest movies. Please add a couple more at least. I love Christmas movies but by the time Christmas season has arrived I am Christmas movie out.
I love the movie Finding John Christmas. Looked for it all Christmas season last year but it never aired. Please bring this wonderful movie back this year. S
