HOOKED ON HOLIDAY MOVIES
The Couch Podcast #89 – Gearing Up for Holiday Movie Season with Brandon Gray of Deck the Hallmark Podcast
Holiday movie season is almost here, so let’s talk made-for-TV holiday movies! What do Lifetime movie fans think when the station switches from killer cheerleaders to stars from the 90s having snowball fights? What’s the best way to watch a holiday movie—while doing laundry or while taking notes because this is serious business? And when, for the love, will Hallmark release their full holiday movie schedule?! One of my favorite podcasters and now, friend of the show, Brandon Gray is here to address all these questions and more.
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.
DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
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!
