Hallmark's "Countdown to Christmas" starts October 23 with 40 new movies

We could all use some cheer right now — and if there's anything that'll put us in a festive mood, it's knowing that there are tons of new Hallmark Christmas movies coming our way. The best gift of all: The network will release 40 all-new movies on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries from October through December.

Both Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas" and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' "Miracles of Christmas" are scheduled to kick off on Saturday, October 24. In total, there will be 40 brand-new holiday movies — 23 on Hallmark Channel and 17 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. That means that Hallmarkies will have 40 excuses to bust out our Hallmark-themed drinking game … or even polish off a few glasses of Hallmark's Christmas-inspired wine.

While the official movie schedule is subject to change, Hallmark fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they'll get the same amount of holiday magic as last year despite the ongoing health crisis. A true holiday miracle, don't ya think?
