In these difficult times, it’s nice to know that there are people out there willing to help however they can. And that list of helpers now includes the Hallmark Channel.

The Hallmark Channel announced its plans to bring back a little joy with a very special marathon featuring its famed Countdown To Christmas movies. The marathon starts Friday, March 20, and runs through Sunday, March 22.

The marathon will kick off with an absolute banger, “A Christmas Detour,” starring Hallmark queen Candace Cameron Bure. In case you missed this one, the plot revolves around Bure’s character finding love while trapped with another traveler in a snowstorm, which seems very timely right now, no?

Other movies in the marathon include “A Royal Christmas,” following the adventures of a young prince falling in love in Philadelphia, and and “A Very Merry Mix-Up,” which follows a woman who somehow, magically, goes to the wrong family’s home for the holidays. And that home happens come with a hunky — and eligible — son to boot.
