My Hallmark Obsession

2019 Hallmark’s Christmas Movies: Which one’s are worth Watching?

It turns out, you might need a little guidance this weekend…

As you may or may not know, my love for Hallmark Movies got very real this past Countdown to Christmas when I reached out to the friends in my Facebook universe.  I posed the question: Who loves Hallmark Christmas movies…and who would love to play a game with me?

Out of the handful of people that shared my love/obsession… 21 people (including myself) decided to jump on board with my crazy idea of hosting a

Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown Bracket.

Basically, I took 24 of the NEW movie premieres and paired them up against each other in a Bracket.  We watched them.  We voted.  People either donated $$ to participate or a prize to be given away.  It turned out WAY more amazing then I thought it would!  It was not only fun to play, but it was fun to discuss the movies and get to know some awesome people that I didn’t typically interact with before.

I DO have plans on hosting again this 2020 Christmas Season (God-willing), but for now…

If you haven’t heard, Hallmark is airing their Countdown to Christmas Movies this weekend as a Marathon!  Now, I know you might be game to just sit down and watch them all.  And, to that I say, “GOOD ON YA!”  They’ll bring you happiness and joy!

If, however, you are thinking…“Geez, I wish I knew which one(s) are actually good…”

I AM HERE FOR YOU!

(to be fair, our Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown Group is here for you) Because thanks to our hours of dedication and sacrifice from October 2019-December 2019.

We WATCHED THEM ALL!  

and BETTER YET….we discussed, voted, and ranked them all!

I won’t reveal all of our secrets, because I didn’t ask if I could share identities…but I will share our FINAL vote.

In order to determine the “REAL” Hallmark Christmas Movie Winner, we voted on the TOUGH, hard-hitting question:

Would You Watch It Again?

Below is the  Final List:

Out of 21 voting Members, the number Listed is the Percentage of Participants that would, in fact, RE-WATCH the movie.  (and with all the options out there, that’s some High Praise for a Hallmark flick, if you ask me)

  • 71% Merry & Bright
  • 71% Christmas Scavenger Hunt
  • 62% A Christmas Love Story
  • 57%  Christmas in Evergreen; Tidings of Joy
  • 52% Christmas Under the Stars
  • 48% A Gift to Remember 2
  • 48% Christmas Town
  • 43% Write Before Christmas
  • 38% Check Inn to Christmas
  • 33% Double Holiday
  • 33% The Christmas Club
  • 29% Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses
  • 29% Picture a Perfect Christmas
  • 29% Mistletoe Secret
  • 19% Christmas at Dollwood
  • 19% It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
  • 14% Our Christmas Love Song
  • 14% Christmas at the Plaza
  • 10% A Christmas Duet
  • 10% Christmas in Rome
  • 10% Holiday Date
  • 5% Nostalgic Christmas
  • 0% Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays
  • 0% A Cheerful Christmas

 

There you have it folks!

My personal opinion…I would watch ALL of the movies on the above list that scored 33% or more.  This is the VERY HIGHLY regarded opinion of the Hallmark Movie experts I gathered.  Do with it what you will!

Also. This is only our opinion of whether or not we’d watch it again…if you’d like further clarification on a specific movie…or pros/cons to this/that.  I am happy to help!  I understand what pressure we are under to choose wisely in a home that shares limited screens 😉  Feel free to ask away!

Hope They Spread some JOY to you this Weekend.

Happy Social Distancing &  MERRY CHRISTMAS!
