Hallmark’s here to make your summer merry and bright
Touch up your home with a bit of tinsel and unravel that battery-operated garland, Christmas in July is almost here — and Hallmark Channel has just the merry lineup of holiday content to binge this summer. We’re talking an assortment of new — and old — Christmas movie faves, from Candace Cameron Bure- and Lacey Chabert-led films to Blake Shelton-produced movies.
Kicking off June 25, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ holiday-themed movie event boasts all of their best and most popular Christmas movies. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, specifically, is hosting themed movie nights through July 8, while Hallmark Channel’s Christmas in July movie event kicks off July 9 and runs through July 31. And to mark the beginning of the annual summer movie celebration, Hallmark Channel’s premiering a brand-new Christmas movie, Crashing Through the Snow, on July 10 at 9 p.m.
Starring Amy Acker and Warren Christie, Crashing Through the Snow follows Maggie (Acker) as she joins her ex-husband, Jeff (played by Kristian Brunn), and his girlfriend Kate (Brooke Nevin), for a Christmas getaway in Aspen. And it’s here in Aspen that Maggie meets Kate’s brother, Sam (Christie), and, well, you can probably guess what might happen next.
Other films slated to air during the Christmas in July movie event include Christmas Under Wraps starring Candace Cameron Bure, the Danica McKellar-led Crown for Christmas, and an entire night (June 28) of Shelton-produced films such as Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas, Time for You to Come Home for Christmas, and Time for Us to Come Home for Christmas.
