After that, catch a feel-good Christmas film every Friday night until the holiday season starts. (For up-to-date listings, check the Hallmark schedule).

If you’re still feeling festive, whip up a batch of cookies perfect for Christmas in July. Make your home office a little more merry with Hallmark’s virtual Zoom backgrounds. Or, heck, go put up the tree! There’s a surprising reason you should put up your holiday decorations early anyway. No matter what you do, bask in that cheerful glow only Christmas can provide, and remember—’tis (almost) the season!
