Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies Make Me Happy

If you are anything like me, Hallmark Christmas movies are something you look forward to every year. I was actually disappointed because, in the past, the Hallmark Channel has had Christmas movies every night throughout October, but the channel didn't offer that this year.

I know I can't be alone in my love of these movies; they actually make T-shirts for people who love to watch them! (The one below is my favorite because it's warm enough with long sleeves to wear in most climates and not as heavy as a sweatshirt for someone who lives in a warmer climate like California or Florida.)

I was inspired to create a trivia game for my fellow Hallmark Channel Christmas movie fans while watching "Christmas with the Darlings." I hope you enjoy it! Answer off the top of your head to see how much you have paid attention to these movies over the years. And remember—no cheating with Google, my friends!

Good luck and have fun. Oh, and Merry Christmas—no matter what time of year you take this trivia quiz.
