As we inch closer to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, I have been patiently waiting for this announcement as I do every year: the Hallmark holiday movie lineup. And I am extremely excited because this holiday season we get 36 new holiday movies!

I can't be the only one who gets excited about these movies, right? Is it so bad that I pay a little extra for the Hallmark Channel App just so I can binge watch these movies? There is just something about wearing your holiday jammies, drinking coffee or hot chocolate, and watching these characters fall in love and live happily ever after.

I make a whole weekend out of baking cookies, drinking, and having some friends over to watch Hallmark Christmas movies. This year's movies, I think, could be the best. We get out first movie of the year right before Halloween, October 27 (never too early in my opinion). I am like Elf right now; smiling because smiling is my favorite after reading the list of holiday movies coming our way this season.

I don't know if it's because I love seeing the actors and actresses from the sitcomes I grew up with (e.g. Candace Cameron Bure, Melissa Joan Hart) but I am completely obsessed and I can not wait until October 27.
