You would think that with my love for Hallmark Movies….and ESPECIALLY Hallmark CHRISTMAS movies, I would be all over the “Christmas in July” craze.
I’ve had the pleasure of living in Wisconsin my entire life. I love my seasons. I NEED my seasons to match my Hallmark.
My Christmas/Winterfest needs to have SNOW….my Spring Fever must BLOOM…..my Summer Loving must be HOT and SUNNY …… and my Harvest Fest must have gorgeous Orange/Red leaves. It’s how I was raised. I mean, I will not even plan warm vacations if they fall over the Holiday Season.
So, I will not be watching Christmas Movies in July….but that doesn’t mean I am not HERE FOR YOU to help you make the hard decisions in your life.
Like……. Which of the 100s of Hallmark Christmas Movies are worthy of your sweet time?
This past Holiday Season marked my 2nd Annual Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown Bracket.
Yes, I turned my Hallmark Movie Obsession into an interactive game/competition. Yes, other people participated in this with me….and YES, YEAR 2 was an OVER THE TOP SUCCESS in more ways than one.
We watched MORE MOVIES. We had MORE PARTICIPANTS. We gave away MORE PRIZES!!! I even reviewed almost all of our bracket movies on this blog.
It was AMAZING….and exhausting. I may have even had a little Hallmark burnout towards the end. (Hence why not all movies got reviewed)
However, with the help of my fellow Bracketeers, we crowned a 2020 Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown Champion.
We also answered the ultimate question: Would you watch this movie again?
So, without further ado. Here are our 2020 Stats.
Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown 2020
Bracketeers: 54 brackets were filled out
Movies Watched: 32 movies in the bracket (yes, this means some 2020 premieres were left out)
Overall Bracket Winner: Good Morning Christmas
List of Movies in Bracket that we’d watch again. This is polling from 52 of our 54 bracketeers…not all voted, so percentage is skewed a bit. However, it’s a good idea of which flicks were the most well loved. The following percentages are the percent of our viewers that would REWATCH each of the bracket movies:
- 48% Good Morning Christmas
- 44% On the 12th Date of Christmas
- 44% Christmas with the Darlings
- 40% Cranberry Christmas
- 38% Christmas Waltz
- 33% A Timeless Christmas
- 31% Christmas Carousel
- 25% One Royal Holiday
- 21% Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater
- 21% Cross Country Christmas
- 17% Five Star Christmas
- 17% If I Only Had Christmas

- 8% Christmas in Vienna
- 8% Unlocking Christmas
- 6% A Godwink Christmas: Second Chance, First Love

- 4% Christmas Comes Twice
- 4% Meet Me at Christmas
- 2% Jingle Bell Bride

- 2% Christmas in Evergreen: Bells are Ringing
- 0% Christmas She Wrote
Now, there are some very important things to note:
8 of the 2020 premieres did not even get placed in the bracket to begin with….and of those, in my humble opinion, 3 of them were some of THE BEST MOVIES of the season: The Christmas Bow, Deliver by Christmas, & Project Christmas Wish. All three of these mentioned could have competed with the Elite Eight hands down.
Want even MORE info??? If you click on the Movie Title in the Above List….you’ll find my blog review. Looking for a second opinion? One of our bracketeers, Jamie, gives her Two Cents HERE.
Also, I know Hallmark is showing many more Christmas movies from their stash. HERE are our 2019 rankings!
and if THAT is enough…..feel free to ask me anything! I love chatting Hallmark movies! Man, this recap has really got me jacked for Christmas 2021!!!!
