With around six months to go until the big day - and some of the hottest weather of the year under our belts - is there a better time to binge watch a bunch of Christmas films?

Well, if you’re thinking ‘no, there is no better time’ you’re in luck, as Hallmark movies is screening a 17-day Christmas movie marathon throughout July.

Becoming something of a tradition, the network's yearly ‘Keepsake Christmas movie marathon’ kicks off on Friday July 10th with Christmas at Dollywood


From then on, the most dedicated among you will be able to take your pick from a jaw-dropping 188 movies including such classic titles as Double Holiday, Christmas Next Door, A Shoe Addict's Christmas and The Nine Lives of Christmas, before the whole sordid affair is wrapped up on the evening of Sunday July 26th with Holiday Date.

You may be able to tell that I for one am not particularly overjoyed by this news, however it looks like I may be in the minority as quite a lot of people actually seem positively aglow with festive cheer at the prospect!

Fans took to social media to share their excitement at the prospect with one person posting: "Man, I know it's cheesy, but it couldn't come at a better time, honestly."

A second said: "I knew I should have put my tree up during lockdown.” While third person added: “This is what we need a little Christmas joy."


But this isn’t even the first time that the Hallmark channel has hit us up with a run of festive films this year - they’ve got form. 

Back in March it ran Christmas films over a three-day period, and if last year is anything to go by with Sony Movies Christmas launching on September 10th, there are precious few times of the year when you aren’t bombarded with feel good Christmas movies it seems.

I’m pretty sure this isn’t what Wizzard meant when they sang ‘I wish it could be Christmas every day’…
