Hallmark Holiday Programming
Does anyone else find it annoying that Hallmark is beginning their Christmas movies tonight and they will be showing them until after New Years?
On the other hand, Ash vs Evil Dead! I actually subscribed to Starz for it. SO FUN
It’s beyond annoying sunshine8075. Good thing I recorded Hallmark’s Jesse Stone marathon last weekend since I won’t be watching Murder She Wrote or anything else on that channel until after the holidays. It’s not that I’m a scrooge but I don’t warm to the idea of watching Christmas movies for 1/4th of the year. It takes away from the excitement of watching them a month before Christmas.
Well I’m not into Christmas movies that much. I’m a late niter and watch Frasier, Hart to Hart, and Matlock. So will miss those, will have to find something else on sommmme channel…..1000 channels and nothing to watch lol.
And I’ve probably seen all of their Christmas movies at least 3 times.
I know Christmas is a bigggg thing for lots of people, I mean in the way of decorating and such. I was in retail for many years and some customers would ask why it was being started so early and we’d have to tell them because many many customers would demand it!
And we have a Christmas decorating shop near here that’s open all year long.
If I were yunger and my son younger I would be into it more than I am.
So I understand why they want to show the movies but couldn’t they start Dec 1?
I do not mind the Christmas movies as long as they also show some other programming too…I DVR the Christmas movies and watch them from Thanksgiving to New Years.:smileyhappy:
I do! I was looking forward to some serious Halloween horror features everywhere and there aren’t that many, at lkeast not to my liking. I am also ticked off they interrupted Murder she wrote for it, because that’s pretty much the only thing I watch there. BUT after Thanksgiving, I will be glad they have Christmas stuff.
To be honest I don’t care about that channel all that much. If BBC America swiched to only Christmas stuff though, it’d be a loss. Although… They probably have enough good stuff to fill the channel with even if only Christmas-themed.
But I do not like having Christmas on before I finished enjoying the Fall. Let each season play out, TV people!
I don’t mind it, it’s easy enough to ignore. What I do mind is how on December 26, it’s almost impossible to find any Christmas movies on television.
I agree that constant Christmas programming from now seems crazy…Maybe weekend programming should be enough until Dec.1.It’s all marketing.
After running my family’s Gold Crown Hallmark store for over a decade..The realization is that the Christmas "season" for Hallmark never ends..
Before Easter we were ordering Christmas again.
I had customers clammering to order the new Hallmark ornaments that were due to come out..A good part of the new products were in my store by the 4th of July..
I had great customers..They would pre- order and pay for their Christmas ornaments in full and when they came in..and leave them in my store..They couldn’t stand the thought of taking Christmas things home in the summer..
At times I miss all the constant happy confusion..but now I don’t Christmas shop until after Thanksgiving..Unless it’s something really special.
Yes, it’s very annoying! A lot of this Christmas advertising starts in June or July! We don’t even really celebrate the other major holidays anymore. The 4th of July is just used as a prelude to Christmas nowadays. And we seem to skip right over Halloween and Thanksgiving and jump into Christmas preparations. It’s all just an excuse to sell. The culture has become grotesquely commercial.
Not at all—> ‘ Tis the Season!
