Hallmark Schedules Christmas Movie Marathon During Self-Quarantine

The Mid-March Christmas content just keeps on coming. It looks like our favorite channel, Hallmark, of course, has decided to lift the spirits of those who are practicing social distancing and self-quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, by giving them what they want. Yes, you guessed it…unlimited amounts of Christmas movies! Let the marathon begin! It’s a brilliant way to keep people at home, that’s for sure.

Starting on Friday, March, 20 at 12 p.m. ET/PT, Hallmark is said to air 27 original “Countdown to Christmas” holiday films from recent years. The first one, A Christmas Detour, will star our favorite Hallmark actress, Candance Cameron Bure. The weekend marathon came as a response from several fans who desired a dedicated line up of “feel-good movies” to pass the time amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

What other movies will be shown? Well, on March 22 at 6.p.m. you can expect to see the wonderful Lacey Chabert star in Christmas in Rome! Other stars featured in the Hallmark weekend marathon include Jesse Metcalfe, Brandon Routh, Adrian Grenier, Chad Michael Murrey, Torrey DeVitto, Holly Robinson, Danica McKellar, and Kristin Chenoweth.

For those of you who have been following the network, you know there is a new premier coming up starring Scott Michael Foster and Laura Osnes. In the Key of Love is planned to air on Saturday, March 21st at 9 p.m. ET/PT as well as a preview special for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and “Spring Fling” line ups.
