I am personally looking forward to both of these movies - premiering Thursday & Friday night. I'm so glad Hallmark already got us used to this routine, with all the various classic Christmas movies that aired throughout the year. Spreading the new Hallmark Christmas movie premieres across four separate nights was such a good idea! (I know many of you agree!)

As for casting alone, these two movies already look phenomenal. I can just imagine- Brooke (with her sweet, bubbly personality) and Trevor (with his incredible charm) will be a perfect match, and since Nikki Deloach and Michael Rady already worked together in the Spring Fever Hallmark Channel movie, Love to the Rescue, we already know these two are an excellent pairing!

Do you plan to watch/record both movies? I know many have expressed how much they've enjoyed these Hallmark actors in past Christmas films, such as: Miss Christmas, Marry Me at Christmas, Reunited at Christmas, A Joyous Christmas and more! Let's hope these two new Christmas movies will warm all of our hearts in just the same way!

Joyous Christmas Blessings! Net

Prince Jack, who’s in the city for his family’s annual Christmas charity dinner, finds himself in need of a last-minute chef for the royal event when he meets Jessica.

As they work together, Erin realizes Martin may not be so bad after all, and her take-charge attitude not only helps Martin save his company, but also reveals a calmer, better self that opens them both up to the idea of love.

I hope you have the popcorn ready to watch ALL 6 Christmas movies to launch the Christmas Movie Season this weekend! I’m so delighted one of my favorite actresses, Jill Wagner, will star in “Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses,” the movie that launches Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas! What an incredible honor.

Plus, I’m really looking forward to Lifetime’s “Sweet Mountain Christmas” with Megan Hilty, from the fun holiday movie, “Santa’s Boots” and Marcus Rosner, who was great in “Poinsettias for Christmas” last year.

Then on Sunday, I can’t wait to see UPtv’s “A Christmas Movie Christmas” with Brant Daugherty, from last year’s hit Hallmark movie, “Mingle All the Way.” Did you know, he & his wife wrote and star in this film? I hear it’s a cheerful, laugh-out-loud kind of movie – so, I’m really looking forward to it!

In fact, each of these new movies look like a lot of fun… I can’t wait to watch every single one!

May the true spirit of the Christmas season fill your home with warmth and your heart with joy!

I can hardly believe – it’s HERE!!!

Joyous Christmas Blessings to You All!!! Net
