Hallmark has been a staple of the holidays for over a century. The card company was founded back in 1910, so the brand will turn 110 in 2020. But the name "Hallmark" has meant more than just cards for generations. It started doing Hallmark movies in the 1950s, and in 1992, then the Hallmark Channel followed. Since then, the holidays have become the TV channel's staple, with Christmas as the crown jewel of its presentation. So it should surprise no one that Hallmark’s Christmas Day 2019 movie schedule is chock full of holiday romance.
Every year, it seems like Hallmark keeps adding to the library of titles focusing on the holidays. That impression isn't wrong. In 2017, the channel debuted 33 new films; in 2018, the channel debuted 36 original holiday movies from Halloween to New Year's Day. This year, it's outdone itself, with no less than 40 new titles that have debuted over the last ten weeks or so. At this point, Hallmark has enough Christmas content to make it so holiday lovers can watch original Christmas romance fare all year long.
But which titles are the ones to make the coveted Christmas day airing schedule, when fans watch Hallmark Christmas films all day? Here's the list:
