Top 10 Hallmark Christmas Movies Of 2019

Christmas movie season is finishing up on Hallmark Channel and things are starting to slowly get back into a normal routine after the holidays.  This year I watched almost every single new movie that premiered on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies And Mysteries and I wanted to share my personal favorites.

1. Double Holiday-
If I didn't mention this movie y'all would know something was up!  I watch every single movie of Kristoffer Polaha's and this is my new favorite of his!
I was extremely excited to see that this one would be about both Christmas and Hanukkah. I loved learning about many Hanukkah traditions in such a fun way.
I'm also really hoping we see more of Carly Pope on Hallmark Channel. Such an extremely talented actress.
Such a sweet, sweet movie that I hope we get a sequel to.



2. Angel Falls: A Novel Holiday-
Carlo Marks, Jen Lilley & Eric Close starred in this movie.  First off Carlo and Jen were great together, they really pulled off the old friends falling for each other. Seeing two of my favorites together was also a plus :-)
 Secondly, Eric Close as the angel was great although I was hoping for a little more of the angel helping like there was in other angel movies.
Such a great movie with an especially sweet ending!



3. Two Turtle Doves-
Nikki DeLoach, Michael Rady, and Michaela Russell reunited in this heartwarming movie.  My love for Nikki DeLoach is no secret, I've adored her her since the very first movie I saw of hers'.

I also have to say this, while I love Hallmark movies I'm not blind to the fact that many of them have the mentality of "just go for it and see what happens" which I don't really like (just my opinion) Michael Rady gives one of my all time favorite lines in this movie "I don't just kiss someone to kiss someone, I want it to mean something"

And lastly, Hallmark, please continue using Michaela Russell in your movies. This girl is amazing!



4. The Mistletoe Secret-
Two of my favorites Tyler Hynes and Kellie Pickler teamed up for this movie.  The story was touching and the acting was superb. One of my new favorites. Also, Patrick Duffy was great as Kellie's dad.


5. Holiday Date-
This hilarious romantic comedy starred the amazing Brittany Bristow and Matt Cohen and tells the story of a girl who's boyfriend broke up with her right before she's about to bring him home to meet her parents (played by Bruce Boxleitner and Teryl Rothery) a friend then suggests that she hires an actor she just met to play her boyfriend over the Holidays, but what happens when they really fall for each other?
I've already re-watched this movie and was still cracking up.
I also have to mention Peter Benson, this guy is always great but I think this might be my favorite role of his.



6. Homecoming For The Holiday's-
Laura Osnes and Stephen Huszar have quickly become favorites and this movie was just amazing!  The singing was excellent, the family coming back together for Christmas was great and the two characters actually acted like adults over things (girl seen talking to another guy etc).  Definitely a classic.



7. Check Inn To Christmas-
This movie starred Wes Brown and Rachel Boston and I legitimately would have just watch it for the two of them but as it stands the movie was also pretty epic.  I loved the dynamics you got from the family feud going on and how the families didn't really hate each other.



8. Write Before Christmas-
I was immediately intrigued by this movie when I read the plot and it did not disappoint!  Chad Michael Murray and Torrey Devitto were great together, Madison Smith gave a wonderful performance as Torrey's brother away in the army, and I especially loved the story of her aunt (Lolita Davidovich) finding love again. I'm really hoping for a sequel next year based on Drew Seeley's character!



9. Christmas In Rome-
This movie was epic.  Sam Page and Lacey Chabert were great together and placing their movie in Italy was such genius move. I loved getting to see what Christmas looks like in Rome. This has to be one of my all-time favorite pairings. A sequel would be nice.



10. Christmas In Evergreen: Tidings Of Joy-
Seeing Paul (Greene) and Maggie (Lawson) in a film together again was great but I have to say, I get it, the movie is about the entire town I just wish more time was focused on their two characters because I felt like there wasn't really a lot of of them spending time together and falling in love. I'll also say this, kudos to the writer for actually also having a mature breakup (they do get back together at the end though, don't worry).  I also have to give a quick shoutout to Antonio Cayonne and Rukiya Bernard. Such a cute love story between their two characters.



While I know I said only ten I also have to give Christmas In Montana, Sense Sensibility And Snowmen, Christmas At The Plaza, Christmas On My Mind, and Our Christmas Love Song honorable mention. they didn't in my opinion measure up to the ones mentioned above but were still really good. And also please do know that there are some I haven't had the opportunity to watch yet, like the When Calls The Heart Christmas movie.
Happy New Year’s Eve to you all!
