Itís not even Thanksgiving

Hallmark ticks me off. Itís not even Thanksgiving and ďMurder, She WroteĒ is off the air. Darned Christmas movies for the next 3 months. At some point they need to realize that not everyone celebrates Christmas.

I think last year they did have one Hanukkah movie. But, even if you celebrate Christmas, why do the movies have to start in October? Why canít one find love in October and November?

How many Christmas movies

can there be? I don't get the Hallmark Channel (or any cable, right now) Do they play the same movies over and over?


Sorry to hear you're missing Jessica Fletcher, although I wouldn't want to be friends with her. 10 to 1 you'll wind up being accused of murder and being tossed in the slammer!

It's way too early! And Hallmark does a thing every summer running Christmas movies.

We have a radio station that starts Christmas music right around Veteran's day. I just don't get it!

It's early! Does that mean that the radio stations that play Christmas music 24/7 have also started?

That is ridiculous! I celebrate Christmas and think its too early. Maybe the weekend before Thanksgiving at the earliest, the week before Halloween is not cool.

PE, thatís awesome.

I donít care what they do on the regular Hallmark channel. Heck, I get sucked into the cheesy romance movies now and then (Iím watching one now), but itís the Mysteries and Movies Channel. Leave that alone.

I agree, before Halloween is way too early. At least wait until after Thanksgiving for all of this.

I always wondered why ANYONE would be excited to see her or invite her to visit. Death wish? Gambling, risky behavior?

I was so bummed to see all the Christmas decorations in stores, along with fall and Halloween stuff. I like Christmas movies any time of year, but not decorations or songs.

They used to start them on Halloween. I agree that itís way too early. I went looking for Halloween pencils this week and the stores are loaded with Christmas items. The Halloween items are almost gone. Too early.

Two weeks ago I got in my car, and the radio station was playing Christmas music.

I celebrate Christmas, and I still don't want to be inundated with Christmas music, movies, and decorations for three months.

If you sign-up for peacock you'll get all the Murder She Wrote episodes, FREE! Along with most Law & Order and Psych. No Monk, though, which I would have liked.

Well, all the movies have basically the same storyline

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. That does not mean I want to celebrate all year long. Day after Thanksgiving until December 25. A lot adio station here started Christmas music at the beginning of October.
I've enjoyed some Hallmark movies the last couple of weeks. They had Fall themes and it was nice. I will not be watching their Christmas movies yet.

It comes earlier each year...

Sometimes, I like to put HSN or QVC on in the background when I want to escape from the politics of the world. Starting in the summer, they devote whole days to pushing Christmas trees and other related items, an pre-empt some of the style shows I look forward to. I respond by changing the channel.

Growing up, Thanksgiving always ushered in the holiday season. Now, it comes earlier and earlier.

I feel like the Christmas seasons stops being special when it starts in October. I'm worn out with Christmas by Thanksgiving, having spent a month listening to the music, watching the movies, seeing the decorations. Let it be special -- let it only come one time a year!

I love the Hallmark movies and watch them all year long. I do admit that I hate when they put Christmas movies on in July or March, However, when baseball season is officially over, it is nice to know that I have those movies to watch.

It is a little crazy that they start earlier every year though. It used to be on Black Friday, then it became November 1st. Last year it was October 26th and I didnít think they would come earlier than that but this year it is today,

Happy Hallothanksmas!! I prefer my holidays to be celebrated separately, not overlapping as they certainly are now.

My father wouldn't allow us to put up our tree until after Dec. 1. I still do that now as I get very tired of all the Christmas hype when it starts so early. I really love Christmas music, just not two plus months of it.

I refuse to watch the Christmas movies in July. I can wait till December thank you.
