Happy Thanksgiving and Hallmark holiday movies …

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?

    I’ve seen `A Princess for Christmas’. One of my friends loves Hallmark movies, and sometimes I get together with her to watch them. Your mention of Holiday themes reminds me of one -but I can’t remember the name of the movie. It was a gender-swapped Cinderella retelling that took place over Halloween. The guy was an underdog lawyer, forced to work overtime by his boss and boss’s sons, and the `Princess Charming’ was a wealthy client everyone was trying to impress. It was a lot of fun.

    Too funny – I just started watching Hallmark last weekend (I usually reserve all Christmas themed things – movies, songs, decor) for the day after Thanksgiving. BUT, I will admit I started watching Crown for Christmas this weekend and hit record on my DVR so I could finish it later (one of my favorite tropes too). We have other movies on DVD we watch every year – some classics some more modern (think Four Christmas’ and Love Actually). This is my favorite time of year, especially the lights and cooler weather in TX. Enjoy!

    My ideal Christmas movie is Die Hard . Not really a fan of Hallmark. but I do like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree special.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I’ve watched a few of the Hallmark movies but now that I don’t have access to the channel I’ll miss them this year. They’re always cheesy fun.
