I'm having FOMO. Never watched before. Do you On Demand it or just put on the Hallmark channel all day? What movies are good?

Personally I can't stand them. I think they are all the same - just like the meme says- and beyond cheesy.
But FYI- Lifetime is now running all movies like this all the time. LMN is still the regular Lifetime movies, but Lifetime itself has been all Christmas movies since like 10/25.
Their movies seem exactly the same as the Hallmark type movies.
So you may want to check out Lifetime as well

I just put on the Hallmark channel!!! The meme Nell posted is pretty much the plot of them all. Usually the career is advertising or baker. For years I would poke fun at my mom for watching them....the a couple of years ago when I realized I was way too bah humbug, I started watching. This is my third year and I'm hooked! It's schmaltzy, cheesy, happily ever afters that will never happen for most of us. But if you can just go with it and be open minded, they are sweet movies for Christmastime. Great to have on while you are decorating, baking, cleaning, wrapping presents...you don't have to give them strict attention, lol! I have a bunch of faves that I will watch whenever they are on, some are actually better than others! But they all have similar names and basically the same actors rotate through. Enjoy!

I'm telling you, it's the biggest racket going! They recycle the same plot for every single movie!!!!

I can't wait until Christmas movie season is over on Lifetime. I watch it for the stalker/killer movies, not the stupid xmas ones Chat Icon

I watch them all (all the seasons) and while some are better than others, I just love them. Yes, they're corny and predictable, but that's what I love about them - they're gentle and easy to watch.

Exactly! It's so annoying.
I'm down to one lifetime channel for my movies.
And this has been going on since 10/25.
Isn't Hallmark channel enough?.
They have to take over Lifetime too?
