Previewing Hallmark Channel’s Winterfest 2018 – Four All-New Premieres!
Though it’s probably gone faster than most of us would like, Christmas 2017 is now gone. With a favorite holiday’s disappearance, Hallmark Channel’s beloved Christmas programming also disappears (at least until next Christmas). Fortunately for us, Hallmark understands our attachment to the charms of their Saturday night movies.
This is why, in the New Year, they invite us to have fun in the snow and introduce Winterfest. This year, like most, their slate reveals four all-new originals. Four new romantic comedies that look to be full of fun, snow and of course, romance sure to melt our hearts. Down below, we’re taking a quick look at what’s to come and how we might need to plan our Saturdays accordingly.
