When do Hallmark Christmas movies start?
Hallmark starts its Countdown to Christmas early in 2023, with a premiere date of October 20. That’s right, even before we’ve thrown our Halloween parties, Hallmark wants us to start roasting chestnuts and chopping down Christmas trees.
Of course, you can always DVR your favorites and watch them later if the start of the Hallmark Christmas season is a bit too soon for you.
How many new Hallmark Christmas movies will be available?
Hallmark knows that some of its most fervent viewers tune in during the holidays, so the service has announced that it will be introducing 31 new Christmas films this year.
If you plan on watching all 31 films, be sure to stock up on eggnog and popcorn. And, of course, for those of age, a dash of the good-stuff can add to the seasonal warmth.
