Summer is officially upon us, and that means one thing - - Christmas - - that's according to Crown Media's Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Christmas celebrations in July have long been a tradition for both networks, with the annual programming events highlighting some network premieres. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, things will be a little different this year. As new production is still on the back-burner, both Hallmark Channel, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, are delving into their extensive libraries and re-airing some fan-favorite Christmas movies. Starting on Monday, June 29 at 5 p.m., Hallmark Movies & Mysteries kicks things off with their Gold Crown programming event; presenting three heartfelt Christmas tales each weeknight that culminates in Double Feature Fridays, pairing original movies of the same franchise. Hallmark Channel's Keepsake Christmas, begins July 10 and runs through July 27, where it'll be all Christmas, all the time. Given the current state of world affairs, there isn't a better time for some poolside, yuletide, cheer. Over the years, MediaVillage has been fortunate to chat with many of both networks biggest talents, so as we jolly up for Gold Crown and Keepsake Christmas', we delved into our library to revisit what made some of the projects included special for its stars (click on the included links for the full story and SCROLL DOWN for the complete Viewing Schedules or check your local listings for the full programing rundown).
