Happy January 25th - Let's πŸŽ„Countdown to ChristmasπŸŽ„ Again! 🌟 SEE HERE:


 πŸŽ„ Merry *Mark the 25th*! πŸŽ„



Happy January 25th! Are you ready to Countdown to Christmas? If you've been following *It's a Wonderful Movie* for awhile then you know starting on January 25th, we highlight each 25th day of the month as we Countdown to Christmas! January 25th marks 11 months until December 25th, Christmas day!

If you'd like to join along to celebrate the day - all you have to do is choose something Christmassy to watch TODAY! It can be a Christmas movie, cartoon, family sitcom or anything you like. (There's only one stipulation - it must be family friendly.) Then, please share in comments below your Christmas choice for the day!

My pick to *Mark the 25th* is...

The Hallmark Hall of Fame movie -


I was thrilled to see "Pictures of Hollis Woods" would actually be airing on Hallmark Drama tonight, Monday, January 25, 2021 at 9pm/8c., so I thought right away - this would be a nice way to begin the *Mark the 25th* Christmas Countdown! (If I have a little extra time throughout the day, I might also watch a little of one of the 2020 Christmas movies I haven't watched, yet.)

"Pictures of Hollis Woods" Storyline: Having run away from a succession of foster homes, a 12-year-old girl resorts to desperate measures to stay with the eccentric retired teacher who's made her feel like she's finally in the place where she belongs.

My Movie Review: "Pictures of Hollis Woods is such a beautiful, heartwarming movie. I was deeply touched by the story of sweet, gentle Hollis Woods... who is orphaned as a small child and looking for the love of a family, all the while loving and giving so much back to the families who reach out to her.

Young children may not fully understand the character, Josie, Hollis' foster parent (portrayed by Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek), who is facing forgetfulness; however, it is an excellent teachable story of showing kindness and empathy toward others in need.

The main Christmas portion of this movie does not happen until the very end, so it's not extremely Christmassy, but trust me, it's well worth it, as you will instantly feel the warmth and love in this amazing Christmas scene that completes the movie so perfectly.

"Pictures of Hollis Woods" is available from Amazon on DVD and Streaming, if you have a Hallmark Movies Now subscription.

Joyous Blessings to You All! Net

Encores: Friday, January 22, 2021 at 9pm/8c.

***********



I hope you all enjoy the Christmas movies airing this week. "Swept Up by Christmas" is a feel-good Hallmark movie; our friend Jane reviewed it as "a sweet, cozy, gentle Christmas movie that's a keeper" and I absolutely agree!

If you like comedy best, "Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater" is certainly a super fun, cheerful Christmas movie! In fact, more of our friends confirmed this with their reviews... Namegirl shared it was one of her favorites and kitkat said "Ashley Williams and Niall Matter are great together!" See more reviews of 2020 Christmas movies *HERE*!

"Picking Up and Dropping Off" is a Christmas movie that first premiered in 2003 on ABCFamily. From what I am remembering of the movie, it is family friendly, but it's been quite some time since I've seen it. Do any of you recall watching it? "Picking Up and Dropping Off" also aired a few years back on INSP during the holidays and they are well known for airing wholesome programming. The movie stars actor Scott Wolf, from the 90's TV drama series "Party of Five" and the Hallmark Hall of Fame Christmas movie, "A Christmas Love Story."

Happy Christmas movie watching!

Blessings, Net
