When Christmas approaches, some people eagerly await the arrival of an onslaught of holiday movies during Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” event. Although many of these movies have already arrived, there are still plenty more to come. Here are the four best Christmas 2020 Hallmark movies.
Christmas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing
Aired December 5
Christmas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing is the fourth movie in the Christmas in Evergreen series, and Hallmark Channel viewers have been highly anticipating its arrival. Rukiya Bernard and Antonio Cayonne will be starring in the roles they have long held in the series. Holly Robinson Peete, Barbara Niven, Colin Lawrence, and Ashley Williams will also star.
In Christmas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing, a mayor named Michelle (Peete) and her fiancé Thomas (Lawrence) are preparing for their wedding. Unfortunately, Thomas is out of town for work, and he can only plan the wedding long-distance, and Michelle has a hard time planning the wedding with limited help from her fiancé. That’s why Michelle hires her sister-in-law-to-be, Hannah (Bernard) to take over Michelle’s responsibilities at Evergreen’s soon-to-open Christmas Museum, but Hannah’s work at the museum doesn’t go quite as planned.
Christmas She Wrote
