HOOKED ON HOLIDAY MOVIES
Today I’m joined by my very good friend, friend of the show, and Hooked on Holiday Movies partner, Anna Rendell. As you know, if you’ve been listening to The Couch for a while, Anna and I love holiday movies but we also look at them with a bit of a critical eye, especially when it comes to diversity. So today we’re taking a look at the holiday movie season overall to see if the big networks (especially Hallmark) followed through on their promises to be more diverse and inclusive.
This week’s episode is super fun, because both my guest and I brought our daughters along to chat! My friend (and friend of the show) Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young brought her daughter Zayla to the Couch, and my daughter Adrienne joined us as well. So that means we’ve got extra giggles, plenty of rabbit trails, and honestly? Some really good insight from our girls who watch holiday movies along with us.
Welcome back to the Christmas Couch! This week, I’m hanging out with my friend and friend of the show, Tori Rask, to talk about the new movies we watched last week. Take a listen to hear our take on Hallmark Channel’s Chrismtas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing and Lifetime’s Christmas Ever After. We also check in with our predictions from the preview episode (ep. #59).

Fake Snow & Real Faith
by Anna Rendell & Mary Carver
Love holiday movies? Love Jesus? This is the devotional for you! Mary and Anna take ten topics commonly found in holiday movies (think snowball fights, meddling angels, and holiday baking) and pair them up with a personal story and lesson from Scripture. This devotional is a light and inspiring read, perfect for a quick break from the hustle and bustle of an over-full holiday season. Here’s to fake snow and real faith!
