How about some *good news*? Hallmark to air 40 new Christmas movies this year!!!!

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Hallmark's Christmas Movie Schedule for 2019 Already Has Us Feeling the Holiday Cheer

The more, the merrier — especially when Hallmark Christmas movies are involved. While it might feel like the holiday season is far away, Hallmark is here to make our spirits bright (months in advance): To celebrate its 10th anniversary of holiday magic, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air 40 brand-new Christmas movies in total, starting October 25. That means that we're in store for 40 times the hot cocoa, Christmas carols, and tree lighting scenes.

While the exact schedule is still in the works, the network has already confirmed the projects of some of our favorite Hallmark regulars (and Queens of Christmas) Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Lacey Chabert. As you wait for the most wonderful time of the year to kick off, learn more about the star-studded movies you'll be watching from October through December. And if you're too impatient, you can also watch their most popular holiday movies from years past every Friday night as a part of Hallmark's "Countdown to Christmas."

And do they all live in small towns with snow? In that last photo, I like those piles of dirty snow (that's authentic at least!).

My very good friend is an older woman who adores the Hallmark Channel. Every time I go over to visit her that's all she has on. I'll admit I enjoy it occasionally. Most of the story settings are small town midwestern Americana, lily white of course.

32. on another website i read

Someone described Hallmark movies thusly:

"And it's always the same f*cking story: Some chick named "Holly", high power executive, visits her parents in her old hometown, leaving her fiancé to tend to things in the big city. She hooks up with her old flame, "Nick", who never left town and is kind to small children and animals. Son of a bitch...wouldn't you know it, Holly discovers what an asshole her fiancé is and that she's really in love with Nick. They kiss under the mistletoe and live happily ever after. Every. F*cking. Movie. "

Lol

But, if you like the movies, binge away!

46. Plot: Single woman, who owns bookstore,

bakery or farm - or works at newspaper, ad agency or book publisher - that’s close to failing but nobody knows. Has older/younger sister who’s married to generic bumbling husband who’s kinda dumb but with heart of gold. Married sister has two very cute, smart daughters with whom single sister is very very close, and married sister is terribly worried about single sister all the time, especially since Mom died. Single sister goes home to small town for Christmas, where she runs into the incomprehensibly studly, and newly widowed, ex-boyfriend that she hates, or the incomprehensibly studly, new-in-town single guy who says something irritating causing her a burning hatred for him. Also then runs into said stud again at small town Christmas barn dance, where she glares at stud and he starts to fall in love...

Christmas is over, back to work in the big city, where by total coincidence studly shows up with business at the place she works, owns. Friends unfathomably fill him in on the failing status, he cooks up a plan to secretly save the business, she finds out, hates him more. Then somehow she ends up drunk, kisses him and they are suddenly back at the family farm getting married. The End.

ETA: I have to come clean and admit I’m not completely immune to those kinds of movies. “Hope Floats” is one of my favorite retreats into escapism But I mean, come on! We’re talking about Harry Connick Jr here, in the glory days of his hawtness! Swoon...
