The Merry Madness Christmas Bracket opens on March 1st! The Competition will include four categories this year - the Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Hallmark Movies Now, and Hallmark Classics!

See Hallmark's web-site for more details - and which movies are included in this years challenge!

Let's hope the ultimate winning movie will be played on TV again this year during Hallmark Channel's Prime Time, as the 2017 Merry Madness champion "The Christmas Card" aired last year.


Besides all the wonderful new family premiere TV movies, my heart still remains with some of the dear old classics one can discover on TCM. On Easter Sunday, TCM will be airing both the "Easter Parade" starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland and "Holiday Inn" starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire! These two amazing Movie Musicals are a delight any day of the year, especially "Holiday Inn" which takes you along throughout the Calendar year, celebrating each Holiday, including Easter, the Fourth of July, Christmas, and so much more!!!

'Easter Parade' / 'Holiday Inn' DVD Covers

See the classic musical movie Easter Parade
Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018
on TCM at 8pm/7c.

See the classic musical movie Holiday Inn
Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018
on TCM at 10pm/9c.


The Hallmark Hall of Fame original film, "The Beach House," starring Andie MacDowell, Minka Kelly, Chad Michael Murray and Makenzie Vega, will have its premiere on the Hallmark Channel- Saturday, April 28th, according to Hallmark's Press Release.

"The Beach House" - image: Crown Media

"The Beach House" storyline via Hallmark: "The movie sees Cara Rutledge, played by Minka Kelly, thinking she’d left her Southern roots and troubled family far behind. She returns to the South Carolina Lowcountry of her childhood summers after losing her job in Chicago and reconnects with her mother Lovie (Andie MacDowell). Before long, the rhythms of the island open Cara’s heart. She becomes a “turtle lady” who conserves the area’s wildlife, repairs the family beach house and renews a past romance with Brett (Chad Michael Murray)."

Hope you enjoyed this update & highlight of upcoming movie details! I just love a good Royal Movie... so I'm thrilled we have three coming up! Most of Hallmark's past Royal Movies have been for Christmas; therefore, it's good to see them expand this theme to the rest of the year!

Plus, how fun that we can look forward to a bit of Christmas in March with Hallmark's "Merry Madness" event once again!

Have a Wonderful Day, Everyone!
Blessings, Net
