Well, if you clicked on this post, that means you are a Hallmark Christmas movie enthusiast like me. I’ve been following up on Hallmark Christmas movies since 2007 with their annual “Countdown to Christmas” movie line-up. I watch holiday movies on other networks as well, such as Abc Family, ION, UP & Lifetime, but none are more Christmassy and heartwarming as the ones found on Hallmark. I love Hallmark movies, even though the storylines are often very similar, sometimes very cheesy, but mostly really sweet. These are the movies you can rely on to keep the drama down to a minimum and always give you a happy ending. That’s why I love Hallmark movies so much.
So I thought, why not have a bit Hallmark fun week by week until Christmas, maybe even get to know some other Hallmarkies (I made that word up-Hallmark Channel lovers) like myself, as we enjoy the new 2015 Hallmark Christmas movie line-up.

‘Tis The Season For Love
Premiered- Sunday, November 1st, Hallmark Channel
Starring- Sarah Lancaster
I’m not one to be a very harsh movie critic. When it comes to movies I’m quite easy to please. Keep it clean, tell a good story, make it at least two or three of these things in one movie- sweet, inspiring, heartfelt, thought-provoking, exciting, funny and/or an adventure, and give it a happy ending. See, not hard to please (lol).
Truth be told, this is one of those rare occasions when I found a Hallmark movie to be boring. Don’t get me wrong it had alot of heartfelt dialogue in it, but that’s just it, it felt like alot of talking, but nothing really in exciting or interesting really happens in the film. It was predictable, which is mostly the case with Hallmark movies, and usually I can live with that, but because I found this movie to be a bit of a bore, predictability did not help it much.
The chemistry between the two very good looking romantic leads was just okay, but nothing to make a big deal out of. The very handsome male lead did say two funny things in the film, that got a laugh out of my husband and I. Yes, I made him watch it with me. If you watched, you’d probably know those moments of laughter too.
My favorite part is when we got to hear a newspaper article written for the local newspaper by the female lead, that spoke about greatness. It made me cry (I do that easily).
My favorite quote from the movie was when the female lead ask her mother- “How do you really truly know that it is right?” and her mother replied:
“You Know because your heart tells you that it is (right) and your head shuts up”
