A Few of My Favorite Hallmark Christmas Movies

Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas 2021!

Last year I made a post talking about my Top 5 Christmas Movies, so this year I’m tackling the same topic from a slightly different angle. This time I am specifically sharing my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies. I know there is a lot of valid criticism about their predictability, their inability to commit to either a fully Christian or secular perspective, and their sometimes shallow view of romance. I still find them fun and seasonal though, and that’s enough to make it worth talking about here! These are not in any particular order.

Christmas in Vienna (2020)

Jess, a concert violinist whose heart just isn’t in it anymore, goes to Vienna for a performance. While there, she finds the inspiration she has been missing, and a new love.

About Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas

Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas (2014)

With a duty to deliver every last letter before Christmas, the beloved quartet of post office detectives—Oliver (Eric Mabius), Shane (Kristin Booth), Rita (Crystal Lowe) and Norman (Geoff Gustafson)—are working around the clock to redirect Santa’s mail just as Oliver runs into his former Sunday school teacher (Marion Ross). When they receive an emotional last-minute plea not meant for Saint Nick, but instead written to God, they must delay their own travel plans to make sure one little girl doesn’t lose her Christmas joy—something Oliver and Shane are also struggling to find as they each face painful holiday memories. With a little guidance from a mysterious post office volunteer, Jordan (Rob Estes), the Postables are more surprised than anyone to discover they’ve been a part of more than one miracle on this Christmas Eve.

12 Wishes of Christmas (2011)

A woman must set things right, when a mysterious lady named Noel grants her 12 wishes and they magically come true for Christmas.

Northern Lights of Christmas (2018)

Zoey Hathaway has been working towards her lifelong goal of being a pilot for years, but everything is thrown off-course when she unexpectedly inherits a reindeer farm, along with the dangerously handsome ranch hand Alec Wynn. Now buried in taking care of reindeer and all the Christmas responsibilities, Zoey thinks life has delivered her a strange and cumbersome blow, and she isn’t sure about Alec, who has his own ideas how best to run things. Alec, who has never had many people have faith in him, opens up when Zoey invests trust in him, and the two find themselves falling for each other. Could they both find happiness in the most unlikely of circumstances right before Christmas?

Christmas at the Plaza (2019)

An archival historian is hired to create a Christmas display at the Plaza Hotel and is paired with a handsome Christmas decorator to bring it to life.

One noteworthy bonus is 2019’s Write Before Christmas, which made my overall list last year so I didn’t give it a slot in this year’s Hallmark-specific list.

Do you enjoy Hallmark movies? Also, did you know that a lot of them are based on books or later have books written based on the movie? You can check out their book catalog here.

Until the next chapter,
