Fourth of July celebrations will be more celebratory than ever for many, but for those who have cooler climates on the brain, Hallmark Channel is focusing its attention on a much colder holiday season, with the official beginning of their Christmas in July holiday programming event.
Featuring many of their epic romances from years past taking place in snowy villages and towns, the network is bringing fans a dose of the festive holiday season, complete with Christmas carols, gifts, sweaters and of course, many kisses under the mistletoe. So if you’re feeling more up for wintery programming this Fourth of July, there will be something for you when the festivities officially kick off beginning Friday, July 1 at 10 a.m.
