It's not long until we'll be dusting off our Christmas trees, rushing out to buy festive candles, and transforming our homes into a Christmassy haven. Yep... we don't have long to wait until the holidays are upon us and stores start stocking up on all things festive.
Christmas is a time for good food, family, festive decor, gift-giving, and of course, Christmas movies. One of the highlights of the festive celebrations has to be the Hallmark channel's "Countdown to Christmas" event. The legendary channel is a favorite among movie-loving folk. We can't get enough of the channel's cheesy rom-coms - especially when they're Christmas-themed.
Well, fans of the popular channel are being treated to something even better this year - Hallmark-themed Monopoly - meaning we can get into the festive spirit early with a good old board game.
