Hallmark Channel's Original Premiere of "Christmas By Design" on Friday, Oct. 27th at 8pm/7c! #CountdowntoChristmas #Giveaway

It's officially my favorite time of the year! Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas is my green light to start celebrating the holiday season. Every year my family and I breakout the slice-n-bake shortbread cookies and cocoa and snuggle up for our movie-watching tradition. We always make a cookie tin to give to Grandma and Grandad as well, since they share in our Hallmark movie obsession. It's a deliciously easy gift that always brings a smile to their faces and gears them up for the best movies of the year. If you're like our family, you've already marked your calendar for the 31 new original movies premiering throughout #CountdowntoChristmas, too.

No one can resist Christmas cookies!

We're kicking off our movie marathon with "Christmas by Design", which airs this Friday, October 27th at 8pm/7c. Check out the trailer below...

Christmas by Design stars super talented actors Rebecca Dalton and Jonathan Keltz. When a fashion designer gets accepted into a Christmas challenge to create a new holiday-themed collection, she not only finds the inspiration for her next line but decides to redesign her approach to what’s most important in life. 

Be sure to add Hallmark Channel's movie line up to your calendar. We invite you to join us for a Live Chat on 'X' (formerly Twitter) during the movie premiere, as we watch 'Christmas By Design' together! Connect with us using #CountdowntoChristmas, @HallmarkChannel & @AvenueReviews to chat!
