I want to wish everyone an (early) Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that you all get to spend some time with friends and family, watch some football, and of course, eat some good food.
The four-day Thanksgiving weekend is probably my favorite weekend of the whole year. Family, food, football, putting up my Christmas tree. I enjoy it all. Plus, it’s a great time to just stay home and relax.
One of my favorite things about the long holiday weekend is watching all the movies, new and old, during the annual Countdown to Christmas on the Hallmark Channel. I love, love, love romantic comedies. Plus, watching the Christmas rom-coms has become a fun tradition that my mom and I do every year.
Probably my mom’s favorite Hallmark movie is Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. It came out a few years ago, but I bought her the DVD, and she watches it every year. We might watch it again this weekend.
I really like the royal-themed Hallmark movies, like A Princess for Christmas, A Royal Christmas, and Crown for Christmas. Those all have a lot of good conflict and drama, as you have the culture clash of ordinary people getting swept up in the royal world. Plus, the commoner-falls-in-love-with-a-prince is one of my favorite romance tropes.
Another one of my favorite Hallmark movies is Snow Bride, which is about a tabloid reporter who is trying to get a scoop on a prestigious family. But of course she ends up falling for the guy she is investigating.
Also, in these movies and pretty much all the other Hallmark ones, the locations, decorations, and costumes are really lovely. So I’m looking forward to re-watching these movies, as well as checking out the new ones for this year.
What about you guys? Do you watch any of the holiday Hallmark movies? What are some of your favorite holiday movies? Do you plan to watch any movies over Thanksgiving weekend?
