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)

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!
