I have discovered Hallmark movies. I don’t know if we have the Hallmark Channel in the UK, but oh my god, their movies. They’re cheesier than a Christmas camembert served with a side of cheddar, and I LOVE THEM! Thanks to Netflix, I’ve had the chance to binge on them over the past few days. If you’re as into corny love stories with a predictable plot that almost always feature a dead parent, I recommend you watch the following… (Some of these may not be Hallmark, but they have the same vibe.)
Harvest Moon. “A spoiled shopaholic reduced to living on a pumpkin farm after her dad goes broke finds a secret formula for success and romance in a small town.”
Just The Way You Are. “Her perfect love score is on the line. Can dating still work if you’re already married… to the person you’re dating?”
A Gift Of Miracles. “She’s a scientist who’s all head over heart. But a list left behind by her late mother is about to change that.”
A Christmas Detour. “She believes in true love. He’s seriously soured on romance. But even in a New York snowstorm, chivalry isn’t dead yet.”
A Royal Christmas. “Her Prince Charming turns out to be a real prince. Now this regular girl is facing her biggest rival: his royal mother.”
A Wish For Christmas. “After Sara’s boss steals her bright idea, she asks Santa for the courage to stand up for herself. But can 48 hours of magic make a lasting difference?” These last two star Gretchen Wieners. So fetch.
Angel For Christmas. “While researching a family heirloom, a jilted news staffer uncovers the ornament’s magical past and meets someone special, perhaps not by coincidence.”
Once Upon A Holiday. “A princess runs away from her royal duties during a Christmas visit to a big city and meets a nice guy who shows her the joys of living a normal life.”
October Kiss. “This uptight family might need some lessons in love. And this fun-loving nanny might need a lesson in commitment.”
Autumn Dreams. “Their teen marriage never got off the ground. But fate may give these 30-somethings a chance for a do-over.”
I’ll be spending every day until new year enjoying my friends and family (and food and new books and video games and board games) now, so this is goodbye until January. Happy New Year ladies! I’ll leave you with something I post somewhere every year.
