The 2020 Hallmark Christmas in July Movie Marathon Begins This Monday

Emily Tannenbaum

With the world midburn, Hallmark wants you to escape for a moment with a little holiday cheer. Who cares if it's almost July and a whole six months out from Christmas—time doesn't even really exist in quarantine, right?

Granted, Hallmark's Christmas in July movie marathon—not to be confused with its recent Countdown to Christmas marathon this March—happens yearly. In 2020, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air 250 of your favorite original holiday movies, from June 29 to July 27.

According to a June press release, per CNN, the network will air "three heartfelt yuletide tales" every weeknight, along with a more packed weekend schedule. "Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries once again bring the yuletide poolside this July, with the return of the networks' popular summertime Christmas-movie programming events starring fan favorites Candace Cameron Bure, Lacey Chabert, Holly Robinson Peete, Danica McKellar, Chad Michael Murray, Ryan Paevey, and more," the release stated.

Wait, Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill? Count me all the way in.

The entire event will kick off with The Mistletoe Inn, starring Alicia Witt (hint: You've seen her in a ton of these Hallmark movies). Basically, when Katie (Witt) is dumped by her novelist boyfriend (aren't they always a “novelist”?), she decides to sign up for a romance-writing retreat at an adorable inn instead of her typical Christmas plans. (QQ: Are cute writing retreats a real thing? Asking for a friend that is me.) 

Anyway, if you don't have access to cable or a Hallmark subscription (time to hit up your parents), there are still ways to get in on this. Fubo, Philo, and Frndly TV all grant access to Hallmark content and can be tested with a free seven-day trial.
