Yes, Hallmark’s “Countdown to Christmas” has been in full swing for two weeks already, with a daily lineup of holiday-themed movies to choose from. I’ll admit it–they’re my guilty pleasure this time of year.
Unfortunately, not all of these sappy romance movies are worth tuning in for–some are painfully trite and obvious–but every once in a while, there’s a gem hidden in there that is absolutely worth watching.
The Nine Lives of Christmas is one of my favorites. It’s a heartwarming story about a veterinary student named Marilee and a firefighter named Zachary, who meet and bond over their love of cats, while facing down some serious trust issues and emotional baggage. LOL…yes, it sounds hokey, but trust me, you’ll enjoy it. CLICK HERE to watch it on Vimeo, or check the Hallmark Channel schedule to see when it airs next.
