Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and you know what that means–Christmas movies. I’ll be the first to admit that since giving up cable/satellite nearly 10 years ago, the only time I missed it was during the holiday season. Why?
Because I love Christmas movies, and I love how new stories are always waiting to become favorites.
I wish that channels would offer subscription services so that I might just stream the Hallmark Channel instead of having to pay for so many channels that I don’t want to watch. They do offer one for the Hall of Fame movies, but I want all of them, not just some of them. Heck, I’d even like it if they threw in a half hour program of their old commercials.
But I digress.
I’m happy to say, I have found ION television which plays Christmas movies all day Saturday and Sunday starting after Thanksgiving, but in the evenings of one of the sub channels, there’s Christmas movies on now.
And they’re awesome. No, I’m not just saying that because Netflix doesn’t have many up yet.
I’m saying it because, Christmas movies are the best examples of how to tap into the viewers emotions to give them that feel good sigh at the end. And they’re pure entertainment.
Of course, I still watch my old favorites on DVD/Blu-Ray, but it’s always fun to find a new movie to add.
Until next time.
