The holiday season is a time for festive decorations, seasonal songs, delicious eggnog and, of course, tremendously cheesy and formulaic Christmas movies from the Hallmark Channel.
Hallmark movies have a dedicated following of fans who genuinely love ― or love to hate ― these tales of lonely innkeepers, corporate women who’ve given up on romance, widowed Christmas tree farmers and more. Many Hallmark viewers also love to tweet about the comfortingly familiar films.
We’ve rounded up 55 funny and all-too-real tweets about Hallmark holiday movies. Enjoy!

Does every Hallmark Christmas movie have the same plot?— Alli Moore (@AlliMichalMoore) November 22, 2017
Am I still going to watch them and act surprised when Susan falls in love with the small town baker who only wears sweaters instead of falling for the big city CEO?
I just want all white people to know that I assume everything I see in a Hallmark movie is a documentary of white daily life. Right now millions of you just said, "I am going to tell him I love him the best way I know how. With gingerbread."— Tressie McMillan Cottom (@tressiemcphd) November 1, 2018

Me: *crying* It’s. Just. So. Beautiful.
Husband: *crying* It’s. Just. So. Terrible.
Hey nice city boyfriends/love interests in Hallmark Xmas movies who graciously lose out to the small town guy when she decides to follow her heart and stay— hit me up when you get back to the city 💃🏻— Christine Nangle (@nanglish) November 25, 2018
When will they make a Hallmark Xmas movie about a mom who slowly loses her mind because no one appreciates her and by the end she sets fire to the Christmas tree and maniacally throws all the presents in the snow and runs down the street in her bathrobe screaming FUCK EVERYTHING— Visions of sugar plums Bored🎄 (@VisionBored1) November 28, 2020
What is it about Hallmark Christmas movies that seems like the casting directors just walked into a Target, walked up to the relatively most attractive white person and said “Hey wanna be in a movie?”— katie jo (@katiejoyofosho) December 23, 2019
House Hunters and a Hallmark Christmas movie. The only two places where a reindeer groomer is independently wealthy.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) December 8, 2017
These Hallmark Christmas movies inspire me to believe that one day I too can bicker my way into true love with a Canadian long johns model if I just curl my crispy blonde hair into gross enough spirals— Karen Kilgariff (@KarenKilgariff) December 31, 2017
lady in hallmark movie just said “sorry I’m late, the stars are breathtaking tonight” and everyone was fine with it. no one blinked an eye. those are 2 separate thoughts. u did not arrive late because you were just fucking, looking up. i can’t say “sorry im late, there are birds”— audrey farnsworth (@audipenny) January 13, 2019
a hallmark christmas film starring werner herzog and tilda swinton as two romantic leads drawn together by a shared love of walnuts and figs and kept apart by bitter grocery store owner who only stocks enough for one (played by harrison ford, with earring)— Anne T.

I will write the queer Hallmark holiday movie about a gal who leaves the city to find small town love— Cameron Esposito (@cameronesposito) November 26, 2019
& then moves back to the city bc cmon
I'm convinced that every single Lifetime/Hallmark/ABC Family TV Christmas movie was scored by the same person. The music is always this bouncy, obvious "HERE COMES THE BAD GUY" or "UH OH AWKWARD" theme— jacksfilms (@jacksfilms) December 10, 2017
please let me write a hallmark christmas movie where the townspeople of Snow Falls, North Dakota meet one (1) single jewish person— Dana Schwartz (@DanaSchwartzzz) October 8, 2019

I’m one Hallmark movie away from grabbing the cute, single dad down the street and making snow angels.— Chelle (@BombChelleMama) December 1, 2018
Just watched a Hallmark Christmas movie about a psych professor who gets a call from the "dean of Yale University" saying they saw her thesis manuscript (!) and want to publish it (!!), and then the dean's like, "also, an associate professor position just opened up, come" (!!!).— Nicole Seymour (she/her/hers/Dr.) (@nseymourPHD) November 21, 2018
I’m waiting for a reverse Hallmark Christmas Movie about a small town girl who realizes her community’s politics are terrible, moves to Manhattan, gets a high pressure office job, meets a businessman, and they host a non-denominational holiday party at their penthouse.— Jennifer Wright (@JenAshleyWright) December 1, 2018
Okay hear me out, what if instead of PG kissing for the first time after waiting till they said 'i love you' at the end of every Hallmark movie, they FUCK at the bottom of act 2 like a normal couple who understands the importance of sex.— Stephanie Mickus (@smickable) December 23, 2018
I'm watching Hallmark Christmas movies (FOR RESEARCH jeez) and I am scandalized how quickly the city girl goes over to the handsome widower's house. Like all you know about him is he has a dead wife and statistically he's the one who did it. All that risk for a dry lip smooch? no— Jennifer McAuliffe (@JenniferJokes) August 11, 2020
I want to see a reverse Hallmark movie where someone starts out with a ton of Christmas spirit and then gets broken down and hates the holidays by the end.— JEFF WILD (@jiffywild) December 24, 2018

Hello it’s me, the villain of this hallmark movie, I’m the protagonists shitty girlfriend from the big city as well as the only person in the whole world who inexplicably hates dogs. I hate your used bookstore and I WILL close it down, woman who will eventually date my boyfriend!— audrey farnsworth (@audipenny) February 2, 2018
Every Hallmark Christmas movie should have a post-credits scene where the Big City Lawyer and the Small Town Man of Her Dreams discover each other’s voting history.— Paul Musgrave (@profmusgrave) December 14, 2019
I'm a typical female in that I love Hallmark Christmas movies, but I also sometimes wonder about the penis sizes of the male leads.— Stabbatha Christy (@LoveNLunchmeat) December 9, 2019
Last night I fell asleep during a Hallmark Christmas movie and now I’ll never know if the margarine woman conned the CPR dummy into loving her— Karen Kilgariff (@KarenKilgariff) November 24, 2018
Some one hire me to write a Hallmark movie about a Black girl that escapes her suffocating small town & broke ass high school boyfriend in favor of a great career in the city with an adventurous well off man who loves to travel— ❄Mikki Kendall❄ (@Karnythia) December 11, 2018
seriously i've seen like 39 hallmark movies this year & everyone of them is about a mean realestate developer or a sled that needs polishing— matthew gourd gourdler (@GUBLERNATION) December 24, 2016
Has a Christmas ball/gala ever existed outside the confines of a Hallmark or Lifetime holiday movie 🎄— Emma Gray (@emmaladyrose) December 24, 2019
Earlier today, I had a rep at Amazon named 'Angel,' who saved the day on a Christmas present for my son, and just now, a Citibank rep named 'Gabriel' was able to reverse a double charge from DoorDash that would've caused a check to bounce. Am I in a Hallmark holiday movie?— Gennefer WEAR A MASK Gross (@Gennefer) December 17, 2017
For those of you who think I never “reach across the aisle” to listen to Republicans, I’ll have you know I’ve already watched a Hallmark Christmas movie this year.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) November 12, 2018
The plot of every Hallmark movie is about a career woman who is too busy for love but she has to move to a small town where a handsome local bachelor teaches her about the true spirit of the holiday. It starts snowing and they kiss. There is also a dog.— Joel Doubleyou (@JoelDoubleyou) November 19, 2018
What I really want is a Hallmark movie where a woman learns the true meaning of Christmas while she hunts a serial killer.— Dammit Erin (@DammitErin) December 2, 2019
Spoiler alert, someone in that Hallmark Christmas movie drives a cool vintage truck.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) November 21, 2018
Ok but Selling Sunset has all the makings of a Hallmark movie/romcom.It is inoffensive. You have plucky wholesome small town girl. Wide eyed. Note worthy campy villain. Only thing is Crishell is already married to hot actor otherwise she would meet him while showing a listing— Bolu Babalola (@BeeBabs) June 9, 2020
Does Hallmark use the same actors for their Christmas movies? Yes.— Kendall (@pollard_kendall) November 7, 2018
Do all the movies have the same story? Yes.
Am I going to continue watching them till I can’t hold my eyes open? Yes.
And when I watched them all am I going to watch them again? Yes.
home would be a more peaceful place if I just gave up arguing with my mom about heteronormative tropes of the hallmark movie network— Gabby Noone (@twelveoclocke) December 22, 2014
WIFE: hey wanna try some role play?— mark (@TheCatWhisprer) November 10, 2019
ME: [unaware she just completed a 10 hr hallmark christmas movie bender] wow, sure
WIFE: ok i’ll be the big city executive visiting my rural hometown and you be the old bff who is still single and grew up hot
The most unrealistic thing about Hallmark movies is how well all of these women walk in heels.— Stabbatha Christy (@LoveNLunchmeat) December 31, 2017
I can't wait to get into the Hallmark movie writing phase of my career. Step by step.— Ashley C. Ford (@iSmashFizzle) November 12, 2018

What’s your favorite Hallmark Christmas movie? The one with the lady from the big city who goes back to the rural town where she grew up and runs into an old boyfriend? Or the one with the lady from the big city who goes back to the rural town where she gre— mark (@TheCatWhisprer) December 9, 2018

The sibling relationships in Hallmark movies are intense, especially when one of them won’t be home for Christmas. That’s excruciating pain. You need to understand these siblings were kids together.— John Levenstein (@johnlevenstein) November 29, 2020
I yelled ‘hold the lift please!’ earlier whilst on the phone, running in heels and carrying a take-out coffee. Cannot believe I am a busy exec in a Hallmark movie whose life is about to be turned upside down by inheriting a B&B in the countryside!!!— Juliet Mushens (@mushenska) October 2, 2019
