It’s never to early for a Hallmark Christmas Movie is it? Well except when a Fall Harvest original is on. ( Updated Nov 25 to let you know which ones I have seen and darn, I have been watching a lot of older ones so I have a lot of catching up still to do)
So grab your favorite mug and cozy Christmas sweater and get ready to mark up your calendar. Your PVR is about to start working overtime. The Hallmark Channel has released the entire schedule for Countdown to Christmas 2020.
Hallmark Channel is bringing its yearly Countdown to Christmas back even earlier this year, so you don’t have to wait to watch all the new holiday movie premieres of 2020. I cannot believe I somehow missed that announcement. Honestly I am already behind and have missed a whooping six (6) new movies. How did that happen?
Good lord this year I even ordered a new Hallmark Christmas Movie shirt for myself and a few of my friends and was saving it for the movie schedule. Well get ready for Hot Chocolate, cozy blankets and a fire while snuggled in front of the largest TV you can find. The Season is here my Friends.

Jingle Bell Bride aired on Saturday, October 24
When Jessica travels to a remote town in Alaska to track down a rare flower for her wedding client, she becomes smitten with the small town charm and one of its locals. ( Canadian Actor plays the lead). Really enjoyed this one, the concept was a bit extreme but the story line was cute.

A world-class pianist returns home for some much-needed R&R, but an old ex uses this time to remind her of the ambitious girl she once was. ( Filmed in Canada in Whistler). Saw this one and it will not disappoint. Great underlying story to make you feel good.
