A Christmas Detour

While people are stuck at home in quarantine due to the coronavirus, they can lift their spirits with some Christmas cheer. Starting on Friday the 20th at noon and ending Sunday, March 22 at 6 pm, the Hallmark Channel, known for its feel-good fare, will air 27 of its holiday favorites. 

The marathon kicks off with Candace Cameron Bure’s Christmas Detour, and will be filled with mood-lifting flicks starring channel faves like Lacey Chabert, Tori DeVitto, Danica McKellar, Holly Robinson Peete and more. Another new rom-com In the Key of Love, starring Laura Osnes and Scott Michael Foster, will premiere as planned Saturday, March 21 at 9 pm. 

Check out the full lineup, grab a glass (ok, bottles) of wine, pass the kids their iPads and take your mind off the world for a while. And if you miss the marathon, the network regularly airs Golden Girls in the morning hours, and we’ve found that starting your morning with Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia is way better than watching the news.

The Hallmark Channel isn’t the only spot trying to help make people feel better with some Christmas magic. Twitter users are encouraging people to rehang and turn on their Christmas lights in order to bring something bright into this bleak period.
