Hallmark's Countdown To Christmas Schedule Will Have You Ready For Winter... In September

by Ani Bundel

Summer vacation is officially over. The kids have gone back to school, and the pumpkin spice must flow. Obviously, it's time to think about Christmas. You heard me. There's less than four months' worth of shopping days left. Heaven forbid if you wanted to knit or crochet something handmade, you should have started weeks ago. But there's a great way to catch up. Hallmark's 2019 Countdown to Christmas schedule is here, and ready for you to settle in front of the fire and celebrate the 10th anniversary of this hit TV tradition.

Like the way Christmas creeps in stores like Target and Wal-Mart, the beginning of the holiday season on television has been starting ever earlier in the year. Christmas movies don't start in September, (at least not yet) but the earliest offerings come before Halloween. So start setting those DVRs to record beginning on Oct. 26, because that's when Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas begins its all-new slate of Christmas-themed movies, Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses. It's the first of 24 movies coming this holiday season to the Hallmark Channel, on top of 16 more which are running on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, as part of the "Miracles of Christmas" lineup.

That's 40 Christmas films altogether, enough for one a day from Mid-November until Christmas Day! Here's the trailer:
