Hallmark's Christmas in July movies have come to an end.

I confess - I sure miss turning on my TV and seeing them, BUT instead of feeling empty, I feel RE-CHARGED!

CHRISTMAS in JULY was a refreshing summer treat and now I feel powered up - 100% FULL of Christmas charm, wishes and whimsy!

7 Ways to KEEP
that Christmas Feeling!

here we go...

7. Instant REPLAY

Okay… so you know you recorded one or two, or MORE Christmas movies during Christmas in July… so pick a favorite among them, watch, and enjoy today!

Also, keep in mind... you’ll want to prepare some extra space on your machine to record all the NEW movies coming this holiday season! It’s the perfect time to get ready.

6. Plan your Christmas decorations

Decide now what kind of decorations you will use this year. If you need a new ornament or two, check out Hallmark’s newest Christmas Keepsake ornaments here!

Santa's Magic Train With Music, Light and Motion is one of my favorite new ornaments for 2018!

It's also a good time to plan your outdoor Christmas dΓ©cor - while it's still warm outside!

Outdoor or Indoor - Snowfall Christmas Lights Display Projector
Pre-Lit Santa and Rudolph Christmas Yard Decoration
Outdoor Nativity Holy Family Set

5. Plan a Get-Together

Plan a small gathering with Family and Friends, or plan now for a BIG Christmas party this holiday season, perhaps an ugly Christmas Sweater party like Candace Cameron Bure in “Switched for Christmas” or Brooke D’Orsay in “Miss Christmas.”

By the way, for you Ladies... BOTH Candace and Brooke's exact CHRISTMAS SWEATERS from the movie are still available at Amazon!

Brooke D'Orsay - Reindeer Christmas Sweater

4. Organize your Christmas DVDs

This is the most perfect time to reflect on what you have in your Christmas DVD collection and which ones you still want/NEED! Check out my list of newest 2018 Christmas DVD releases – here!

Includes: Christmas Next Door, A Bramble House Christmas, and so much More

*See more 2018 Christmas DVD releases – here!

3. Enjoy TODAY

Let's simply enjoy the season we are in – at this moment in life! When the weather is sunny and pleasant... do something outside… like a nice walk, hike, or stroll along the beach... or gather on the front porch with friends... or have a picnic in the park. Whatever you do – choose something you might not be able to do once the cold weather returns.

Enjoy these beautiful summer days and summer nights, and that will make the Christmas season even more Special!

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice today and be glad in it!" ~Psalm 118:24


Christmas is right around the corner!

Keep a close eye here at It’s a Wonderful Movie for all sorts of Christmas movie news! It’s such an exciting, fun time to hear all about the festive holiday movies coming soon! Stay here for the latest scoops!

See the 2018 Christmas Movie LIST (so far!) - here!

1. Choose JOY

Do SOMETHING for SOMEONE else. GIVE to others. That is CHRISTMAS in motion… giving!

If we change our perspective, sometimes we can look on the brighter side of things!

To really get you into the spirit... here’s an uplifting, awesome Music Video with the group for King & Country! It includes Hallmark actress Candace Cameron Bure! The song is joy. Let it move you... 1, 2, 3...

Music Video:

Celebrate the true traditions and meaning of Christmas. Each day of the year, we believers in Christ should rededicate our lives to Him, for that is the true SPIRIT of the Christmas season! When we connect with Him in prayer and live out our faith, it gives the Christmas season and the story of a coming Savior even greater meaning! Every day - believe and receive the greatest gift of Christmas! I encourage you to read Luke 2 – which is what Linus shares with Charlie Brown – “what Christmas is all about”!

Hope this inspires YOU to keep that CHRISTMAS JOY -
down in Your Heart!

Every Day of the Year!

Blessings! Net
