Hallmark Christmas 2018, Part 1 – Under the Mistletoe Romance!

11: A Godwink Christmas – November 18

Where: Hallmark Movies and Mysteries

Based on the “God Winks” novels, the story follows a woman who has mixed feelings about her engagement. To sort out what these conflicts mean, she goes to visit her aunt (played by Kathie Lee Gifford) and stays in her Nantucket home.

12: Last Vermont Christmas – November 19

Where: Hallmark Movies and Mysteries

Erin Cahill returns as Hallmark leading lady, and Justin Bruening makes his Hallmark debut. The story, about three sisters who reunite at their family home each Christmas, sounds fun and cute. Of course, there’s also an ex-sweetheart who plans to buy their family home!

13: Hope at Christmas – November 20

Where: Hallmark Movies and Mysteries

Hallmark Christmas 2018

Hallmark’s “Mr. Darcy” Ryan Paevey (Unleashing Mr. Darcy) headlines this drama. The story follows a recently divorced mother who “soon finds herself hopelessly smitten by the very definition of ‘a good man.'” Sounds like my ideal romantic drama.

14: Reunited at Christmas* – November 21

Where: Hallmark Channel

“Samantha Murphy’s beloved grandmother plots from beyond the grave to bring the family together for one more hometown Christmas, during which everyone is reminded of the importance of family, love and second chances.” – Hallmark

15: Christmas at the Palace – November 22

In case the title doesn’t give it away, this one is another “royal” contemporary fairy tale. This time a former figure skater (Merritt Patterson) is hired by a king to give his daughter figure skating lessons.

16: Pride, Prejudice and Mistletoe – November 23

Where: Hallmark Channel

Lacey Chabert steps into iconic shoes in this kind-of contemporary Pride & Prejudice re-telling. This gender-bent re-telling is based on the novel (of the same name) by Melissa de la Cruz. Chesapeake Shores star Brendan Penny co-stars.

Where: Hallmark Channel

18: Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane – November 24

19: A Shoe Addict’s Christmas – November 25

Favorite Hallmark Channel star Candace Cameron Bure returns to her Christmas roots in this new rom-com. It’s given a kind of A Christmas Carol treatment as our heroine reflects on Christmases past – and present.

  1. I am so excited about the reunion of the Christmas With Holly stars!! And I always love seeing Brooke d’Orsay on screen. I’m even more happy seeing her paired with Daniel Lissing. I’m already clearing out my DVR recordings to make room for all these Christmas movie.s

    • ME TOO!! I’ve always loved that movie, Brittaney, so to see them together again (and in a story that will honor the military) is like a Hallmark movie dream. 🙂

      Same: Brooke is adorable no matter what she’s in (I just re-watched “How to Fall In Love”) and I’ve liked Daniel in what I’ve seen him in too.

      YAY for DVR space. I’m pretty low, so I’d best do the same. 😀

  2. Definitely at the top of my list is A Veteran’s Christmas & Hope at Christmas, for both the actors and their amazing story-lines. However, I’m also getting exciting vibes from Christmas Joy, It’s Christmas, Eve, A Shoe Addicts Christmas, and A Godwink Christmas. Point of fact though is that I’m level 10/10 excited for every film except one that’s a part of the Miracles of Christmas line-up! They are firing on all cylinders this year!

    • I’m SO excited about ‘Veteran’s’ and if I remember right (I’ve read about WAY too many Hallmark originals in the past week), I did think “Hope at Christmas” sounds really good as well.

      Hope you enjoy each one your excited about, Kristy; like you, I too am ready for these movies even though I feel like it’s a tiny bit “too early.” 😀
