#CountdowntoChristmas – A December Bride

hallmark channel a december bride
The holiday season is here! It’s really here! This is my favorite time of year, as the feeling in the air and all around is just incredible. I don’t necessarily love it for the gifts, but just for the good feeling of being with family, the downtown streets all decked out in bright lights, and decorating my house. I love baking tasty holiday treats, and watching friends and family enjoy them.

But my very favorite thing about the holidays is settling in for an evening of movies while a nice warm fire is crackling, and a cat in my lap. Add in goodies and hot chocolate and ahhhh….life is good.

Hallmark Channel knows Christmas too, and they always have a great assortment of movies that are warm and fuzzy, and perfect for watching with a fuzzy blanket wrapped around you and a roaring fire. The mood I described above fits perfectly with the mood that Hallmark Channel movies create with #CountDowntoChristmas!

Hallmark Channel countdown to Christmas
One such movie is A December Bride, which airs this Sunday, Nov 20th at 8pm/7c! Here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure:

A December Bride sounds really good, and a movie that I could get completely engrossed in. Sometimes it is nice to be taken out of your own world for awhile and live in someone else’s. I think that is why I enjoy movies so much.

Here is a little about the movie:

Aspiring interior designer Layla O’Reilly (Lowndes) is dreading the Christmastime wedding of her cousin who’s marrying Layla’s ex-fiancé. Although Seth Murphy (Lissing) is the one responsible for introducing the bride and groom, she begrudgingly accepts his offer to be her date as she’s out of options. Seth gets carried away at the reception and announces they’re engaged, forcing a mortified Layla to keep up the pretense. But as the faux couple spends more time together they find themselves feeling something very real. Based on the book by bestselling author Denise Hunter.
