The most romantic network on television has responded: They are having a Christmas movie marathon, because we all need a little Christmas right now. What are all the details?
Hallmark Christmas Movies Are Back!
First of all, Hallmark Christmas movie fans know that nothing feels better than a cozy movie to sit back and enjoy with the whole family. Most of all, viewers want songs, and skating. Hallmark Christmas fans want to see stories that include baking cookies and decorating a tree. In the same vein, Hallmark fans want to feel the comfort and security that Hallmark Christmas movies bring. Furthermore, that is why viewers littered all of the Hallmark social media and fan sites with requests to air Christmas movies all day.
According to Deadline, Hallmark is airing Christmas movies for an entire weekend, starting on Friday, March 20, and will end on Sunday, March 22. Subsequently, they will go non-stop, with just a short movie pause on Saturday evening.
