Re: Older Hallmark Christmas Movies

There are some holiday movies that I loved that weren't necessarily on Hallmark I don't believe that they never show anymore.

 

One of my faves is the Christmas List.  It was with Mimi Rogers and Marla Maples.  I think Mimi's character was Melody and she worked in a department store behind a perfume counter.  I haven't seen that movie in several years.

 

There was also one with Susan Lucci called Ebbie and it was basically A Christmas Carol.   


 

I loved The Christmas List.   In fact a short time after that movie came out I searched and found the DVD from either Amazon or Ebay.    I knew eventually they would stop showing it on tv and I wanted to be able to view it each year.

 

When I find a particular Hallmark or Lifetime movie that I really enjoy I always try to purchase the DVD because sooner or later they won't be showing it again.  

 

If I like a movie but I don't necessary need a perfect copy,  I always record it to a DVD, that way I always have it to view at any time.    

 

I have a huge collection of DVD's.   I know many people have gotten rid of their DVD's because they say they can find most of the movies on Netflix or Prime but I can't part with my collection.   I even have a few VHS tapes left with some of the much older TV shows.   Many years ago I purchased two large free-standing cabinets  with glass doors that are made to hold VHS tapes and DVD's and I have it filled with TV shows and Movies.    

 

My two favorite things to do are read and watch TV.     I'm not big on traveling. My husband and I are homebodies and those two things are our enjoyment.

Watching Debbie Mocomber’s Trading Christmas - it’s a favorite too. Thanks for heads up on Christmas List - I will look for it. I too look for DVDs in case they stop showing.

I noticed Hallmark Drama has been showing a lot of the older movies. Last couple years rarely saw Silver Bells on other two channels but this year the movie has been repeated numerous times in Drama.

@Twins Mom, that one wasn't a favorite of mine but I love the Mrs. Miracle ones.  One was on this morning at 7:00 a.m.  It seems like last year they only showed them once, early in November, and I never saw them again throughout the rest of the season.

@alicedee, I'm such a dope.  It was Monday night.  I misread the date.  I'm sorry.

 

@Sunshine45 has a thread and she lists all the movies that will be on. Maybe you can find what you are looking for.

@J Town Girl   I also have a huge DVD collection, and am buying throughout the year.  I still have tons of movies that I recorded decades ago on VHS.  I like to watch something when I am in the mood, and that is possible, as you know, by having a nice collection, but only buy what I know I will watch again and again, even if only once a year, some I watch many times in a year.

 

I have bought a lot of the Christmas shows usually between $5-8,00, most brand new., and bought some older shows, but brand new, today.
