I’m a girl that is in love with love, so those Christmas movies on Hallmark that always have a happy ending and couples riding off into the sunset make me all melty inside. I am going to share five new Hallmark movies that I am excited to curl up to this holiday season.

This movie is about a bridal boutique owner, Madeline Krug, who finds organizing a Christmas wedding a true treat. She loves the challenge of finding the perfect dress for the bride and orchestrating an exquisite event. What Madeline didn't expect was to be swept off her feet by the bride’s gorgeous brother, movie star Johnny Blake. Johnny came to the quirky town of Fool’s Gold to support his sister — not to fall in love. Yet Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he’s ever met. Planning the perfect wedding leads to candlelit dinners and strolls through snow-covered streets. Madeline finds the real Johnny even more captivating than her celebrity crush.


Christmas Festival of Ice

Starring: Taylor Cole, Damon Runyan, and Wendy Crewson

Christmas Festival of Ice premiered on Hallmark on November 4th.

Those years of law school pay off for Emma, but not in ways one would expect. When she finds out that her beloved ice-sculpting contest, part of her hometown’s Christmas festival, has been canceled, she springs into action. Determined to keep it going, she enlists sponsors and artists. Nick, the town’s ace artisan, isn’t interested in competing this year, but Emma wants him as her teammate. Considering what she’s managed to accomplish, Nick is impressed and signs on. As Emma and Nick work together, she realizes there’s more to life than legal briefs. And, transformed by Emma’s can-do spirit, Nick is invigorated, too. They just might have a shot at winning this very special Christmas contest — and a lot more.


Miss Christmas

Starring: Brooke D’Orsay, Marc Blucas

Miss Christmas premiered on Hallmark on November 5th.

Nicknamed “Miss Christmas,” the official tree finder for Chicago’s renowned Radcliffe Tree lighting is left desperate to find the perfect tree. A letter from a young boy promising his tree is perfect sends her to a small town where she learns the young boy’s dad isn’t willing to part with his tree. While sparks fly, she’ll be forced to confront what she’s really been missing for Christmas.


Christmas Getaway

Starring: Bridget Regan and Travis Van Winkle

Christmas Getaway premieres on Hallmark on December 23rd.

Travel writer Emory has never had a traditional Christmas. Although her free spirit makes her the perfect travel writer, a surprising breakup with her boyfriend takes her personal life back to square one. Hoping to spend the holiday relaxing and recovering, Emory takes the picturesque Christmas vacation planned for the two of them alone. Through a mix-up on the rental site - or maybe a little Christmas magic - Emory is forced to share the cabin with a handsome widower, his young daughter, and mother-in-law. What begins as an annoying inconvenience blooms into a romance she never knew was possible and a Christmas they will cherish forever.


When Calls the Heart: the Christmas Wishing Tree

Starring: Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Lori Loughlin, Martin Cummins, Jack Wagner, Pascale Hutton, and Kavan Smith

When Calls the Heart: the Christmas Wishing Tree premieres on December 25th.  

A loved one returns, Christmas spirit is renewed, and children’s wishes are granted in this heartwarming Christmas movie featuring the series’ beloved characters. Elizabeth’s fiancé, Jack, surprises her, coming home on leave and bringing a young Mountie desperately searching for Christmas inspiration. The community of Hope Valley works together to aid this young man with the help of an enchanted Wishing Tree. And, as mayor, Abigail is pretty busy recognizing that her newly adopted son Cody engages classmates in creating the town’s annual Christmas Celebration. While Sheriff Bill Avery forges a relationship with the disgraced former mayor Henry Gowen, Rosemary and Lee are reminded that family is the true meaning of Christmas.


A Royal New Year’s Eve

A Royal New Year’s Eve premieres on December 30th.

That first kiss of the New Year is special: it’s supposed to signify that special person with whom we’ll spend the next year and possibly forever. So it’s wise not to squander those affections. When everyone else just puckers up to the nearest set of lips, Robin has always kept her wits — and her mouth — to herself. An established photographer at a lifestyle website, she’s assigned to work on a New Year’s Eve story with a new hire, Todd. When she confides in Todd that she has never kissed anyone as the clock strikes midnight, he sets about to correct this by finding someone for Robin to kiss at the magic hour. His theory is that a kiss is just a kiss and she should enjoy the moment. Ultimately, they are both right. Todd finds a man for her to smooch, and Robin does find the right man. And guess who fits the bill?


I’m looking forward to this holiday season and catching these movies on Hallmark!
