Hallmark fans don’t have to wait until December or even November to start enjoying all they have to offer. Hallmark Christmas in July is coming this year!
If you have been here a while you know I’m a bit obsessed with Hallmark. I have been collecting the ornaments my whole life. I have several large tubs full and at least one for every year of my life.
I’ve always loved Christmas and my family and my grandparents always had Hallmark ornaments on their trees so it just has always screamed Christmas to me.
I look forward to going to pick out ornaments to put on my ornament wish list every year. I even joined my local ornament club. It’s fun to spend time with others that love Christmas and Hallmark as much as I do.
Thankfully Hallmark doesn’t make us wait until December to get into the holiday spirit. They have all kinds of things going on for Christmas in July that will help you get a little taste of Christmas this summer.
Hallmark Christmas in July
Hallmark Chrismas Movie Premiers
If you are already counting down the days to Hallmark Christmas movies your wait is almost over! Hallmark will be airing it’s first new Christmas movie of the year on July 7th at 9.m./est on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
The movie is called Christmas Camp. It starts Lily Anne Harrison and Bobby Campo. It centers around an advertising executive who needs to bring in a new account and it happens to be a traditional toy company. To learn more she goes to a “Christmas Camp” and of course because it’s a Hallmark Christmas movie, she crosses paths with the camp owner’s son and I think we all know where that goes.
The following week, on July 13 at 8 p.m./est, Hallmark Channel is debuting A Merry Christmas Match. It starts Ashley Newbrough and Kyle Dean Massey. This film takes place in a ski village and centers around Corey as she works in her mom’s antique shop and puts on a Christmas pageant in honor of her late father. And of course, a man name Ryder visits her store and everything changes.
And if all of that wasn’t enjoy, for 17 days in July you will get Christmas movies every single day! Click here for the full schedule.
Don’t forget that they have been playing older Christmas movies all year long to help celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas.
Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere Event
If you love Hallmark ornaments as much as I do you have to visit your local Hallmark on July 13-21 to get the first look at this year’s ornaments.
You can start making your wish list by picking up the Dream Book or checking it out online.
If you don’t have a Hallmark near you, you can shop online during the event as well. You will still get some exclusives but it’s even more fun to go to the stores.
My store always has a big event, often with fun treats. It’s a lot of fun for any Christmas lover and it’s so nice to see the ornaments in store.
I always end up buying a few, especially if they are limited editions, and make my list for the event in October and I always ask for some for Christmas.
2019 Keepsake Ornament Club Convention
If you want to truly experience all Hallmark has to offer the Keepsake Ornament Club Convention is a must. I think some of the local club I belong to is going this year. I just can’t make it this year but it looks amazing and is on my bucket list.
It’s a three-day convention where you get to meet Keepsake Artist, connect with others that love Hallmark and all kinds of other fun things. It’s August 8-10th in Kansas City so not in July but you have to register by July 1st so I thought I should share.
If you can’t make the convention or it’s a bit much for you, you can also visit the headquarters in Kansas City all year and they even have a free museum.
My husband and I went a few years ago and it is amazing. The photo above is one I took in the museum. It was so cool to see all the ornaments and learn more about the history of Hallmark ornaments.
