The Hallmark Christmas Movies 2017 Schedule Is Full Of Holiday Cheer

Ad failed to load

Christmas is coming, and the goose is getting fat. That must means it's time for Christmas movies! When it comes to the classic emotional, heart-string pulling, romantic camp of the holiday classics, no one does them better than the Hallmark Channel. It's why we call them "Hallmark Movies," because they were brought to us by Hallmark years before they ever had their own channel. So what's the Hallmark Christmas movies 2017 schedule like?

Well actually, the Hallmark schedule is probably wondering why you're so late to the party. They were so eager to start the most wonderful time of the year, they've been chugging out brand new Christmas movies since the last weekend in October. (Yes, *before* Halloween. Like, back when you were binging Stranger Things, they were already walking in a winter wonderland.)

But since some of us refuse to acknowledge Christmas until after Thanksgiving, because holidays are supposed to be done in order, the real majority of audiences are only tuning in now. That's okay, though! You may have missed the first run of the movies that premiered over the last month, but Hallmark's already rerunning them in between the new releases, so keep your eyes on the TV guide.

As we noted, Hallmark has actually been running their "Countdown to Christmas" movies since prior to Halloween. Our list will highlight all the new films for this month, but first, check out the list of what you've missed so far, and make sure to catch them on the rerun:
