Movies I’m Looking Forward to Watch During Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas 2022
It’s that time of the year when the Hallmark Channel will premiere their new Christmas romance movies! Some may not enjoy it, but I do. I don’t always get to see every single new movie, but I am excited to see what kind of movies Hallmark created for the new holiday season.
This year, the movies will start to premiere on Friday, October 21, 2022. From October 21st to December 18th, there will be one new movie premiere every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The only difference is on Thanksgiving week, when there will be a new movie premiere on on Thursday, November 24 AKA Thanksgiving. The Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving will have two new movie premieres every day instead of one. A print off of the movie premiere schedule is available on the Hallmark Channel’s website.
I am very excited to see every new movie that premieres, but there are always movies that stand out to me more than others. I want to mention those movies in a post, in case anyone is wondering what kind of Hallmark movies I enjoy watching and will probably like. Not every movie will suit everyone’s taste, but I hope you find a movie on my list that you may enjoy as well!
