There’s nothing like the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas celebration. The annual event yields enough holiday content to span the months and weeks leading up to the big day, with holiday movies running 24/7. Every year there are dozens of new original movies gracing the schedule along with several classics, and these 15 movies rank among the best Hallmark Channel Christmas movies to watch.

Whether it’s Christmas Eve or Christmas in July, these movies will get you in the holiday spirit and leave you with all of the joy and merriment you can handle.

Hallmark Channel Christmas movies make any season merry and bright

Hallmark Channel holiday movies all have a happy ending, but the journeys always vary greatly. From holidays at magical castles with royal families to stories of hard-working first responders trying to make the best of the holidays, and stories of people trying to get through the holidays when they’re missing loved ones or dealing with heartbreak. There’s something for everyone.

Between the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries there will always be new holiday offerings throughout the holiday season, but as we look forward to new movies there are those movies that stay with us and inspire us. They’re the movies we look forward to, the ones we have to stop and watch when we see that they’re on. You might watch them over and over again, or you might have special memories of watching them with loved ones.

It’s impossible to rank the movies on this list because they’re all so good, so instead they’re featured at random.
