Hallmark plans Christmas movie marathon this weekend to ease COVID-19 stress

Holiday classics, including a Royal Christmas, begin Friday at noon and run until Sunday evening. See full schedule here.

You’re stuck in the house — either by choice or by quarantine (because you’re being socially responsible) — and you’re running out of Netflix series to binge.

Have no fear, the Hallmark Channel is running its famous Countdown to Christmas series beginning tomorrow (March 20) at noon.

So, if you’ve been counting down the days until December to watch your favourite Christmas movies, such as the classic Christmas at Dollywood starring Dolly Parton or the unforgettable A Christmas Love Story with Kristin Chenoweth, you’re in luck.

Hallmark is kicking off this holiday movie marathon with A Christmas Detour, starring Candace Cameron Bure, who also happens to star in several of these romance-themed films.

And the movies keep rolling right through the weekend up until 6 p.m. Sunday when the marathon ends with Christmas in Rome starring Lacey Chabert.

In total, Hallmark will air 27 of its Countdown to Christmas films, so if that doesn’t have you shedding happy tears into your Chardonnay I don’t know what will.
