Hallmark's 'A Rose for Christmas' - Rachel Boston and Marc Bendavid

The movie 'It's a Wonderful Wife'
starring Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker
is now titled 'A Dream Of Christmas.'

See the list of Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies for more details on these movies! *Thank you Shirley S. and Kristina for sharing this updated news!

The question is... what do you all think of these new titles?

The last title changed to a whole new holiday. I wonder what the thought behind that was - especially since it won't be premiering until after Christmas, on New Years Day! Interesting!?!?

Also, in re-searching.... I discovered Dylan Neal's co-star in 'Looks Like Christmas' will be actress Anne Heche! I would love to know what you all think of these new titles. Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
