Ughhhhh, this summer has been so stinking hot! Good thing Christmas in July—where we can at least watch snowball fights and ice skating and outright blizzards on the TV—is right around the corner!
Today my friend, friend of the show, and Hooked on Holiday Movies partner Anna Rendell is here to talk about our all-time favorite, watch them every year holiday movies plus all the ways you can celebrate Christmas in July with the Hallmark Channel. As always, it’s a lot of festive fun!
Of course, you know rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome on The Couch, so we touch on the merits of soft rock and radio DJs, as well as superhero movies and shows (and, obviously, how much we love them).
Also, a real quick note to let you know this episode is sponsored by my upcoming book, Prayers from the Parking Lot: 50 Short Reflections for Moms on the Go. If you’ve ever found yourself hiding in the car, taking the long way home, or sitting in the parking lot for just a minute, okay?—this book is for you. God loves us so much that He meets us wherever we are, whenever we need Him, and sometimes that means we are praying in the parking lot. Find out more and pre-order your copy at marycarver.com/parkinglot.
And now, time for the show! Let’s get started.
UPDATE: In this episode I talk about how the Hallmark Channel is only playing one holiday movie a day during the month of July. I was wrong! They’re playing SEVEN holiday movies each day during the month of July! Stay tuned on social media for my daily recommendations (or just keep it on all day, every day; you do you).
