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.

  1. Sheesh, I’m still trying to work through all the Hallmark Christmas films on my DVR and now there are new ones! I’m thrilled to see the actor from The Spirit of Christmas (a favorite) showing up in a Hallmark movie.

    • I’ve seen “The Spirit of Christmas” (a couple years ago), and as I remember, I did enjoy it!! Like you, I have a few Christmas movies on the DVR too. But at this point, I’ll probably catch them next year. 🙂 Hope you enjoy some of these, too, Brittaney. 🙂
