“Can’t Talk Now, I’m Watching a Hallmark Christmas Movie”

“Can’t Talk Now, I’m Watching a Hallmark Christmas Movie” (Said no man, EVER!)

There are some things men just don’t normally admit to. Forgetting to put the toilet seat down or being lost on a car trip are obvious examples. For me, it’s taking yoga classes and watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. Sure, everybody knows it wouldn’t be the holiday season without Hallmark Christmas movies,but no self-respecting man is going to admit he watches them! So, how did I get here?!

I started taking yoga classes, thinking it might help me get more limber. While waiting for a class to start I overheard a couple of people talking about binge watching the Hallmark Channel. They mentioned movies like Sleigh Bells Ring, where a magic sleigh nudges a single mom back to an old flame; Christmas Wonderland, when Heidi returns home to babysit her niece and nephew and comes face to face with her high school love; and Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas, with two strangers, a businesswoman and a country star, stuck waiting for a flight home for Christmas.

Fast forward a couple of nights later and I’m clicking around, trying to find something to binge watch and I came across the Hallmark Channel. A Christmas to Remember was just starting. The plot was ridiculous. A female TV personality was reluctantly driving home to her small hometown for Christmas when a blizzard hit, and she slid off the road into a ditch. She wakes up with amnesia in the company of the handsome Good Samaritan who pulled over to help her…and they end up in love. Because that’s how ALL Hallmark movies end. Come on!

Let’s face it: Hallmark movies are super cheesy. I guess there’s a lot of conscious suspension of disbelief involved, like watching early Star Trek. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to watching Christmas at Graceland, but not before wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the EIL family!
