The Hallmark Channel wants you to forget about Halloween this year. To encourage this, they're releasing their 2021 Christmas Hallmark movies starting on October 22nd.

I couldn't be more on board. I've spent enough time in the past two years wearing a mask and stuffing my face with treats. I no longer have a use for a national holiday dedicated to those things.

Even Ryan Reynolds is a fan of Hallmark Christmas movies. If you haven't seen the Ryan Reynolds Free Guy/Hallmark crossover promo, you need to give it a watch below.
