Perfect Early Holiday Gift: Hallmark Channel Christmas-Con
There are Comic-Cons. Sports teams have off-season fan conventions. So it makes perfect sense to have one for all the fans of Hallmark Christmas moves.
Hallmark Channel starts showing Christmas moves in August, because they're so popular. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but not by much. These seasonal programming staples are incredibly popular, and in turn, make a lot of money for the channel and Canada (many of the movies are filmed there, due to lower production costs), not to mention resurrect any number of actor's careers.
It sounds like Hallmark Christmas-Con is binge-worthy:
The Hallmark Channel is hosting its first-ever "Christmas Con" at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison. The event takes place Nov. 8 through Nov. 10. The three-day-holiday celebration will feature musical performances, a “Christmas Market,” photos with Santa Claus, and an ugly sweater contest – where wearing the ugliest sweater could win you up to $500. Convention goers will also have the chance to meet some of the Hallmark Channel's stars. - NewJersey.News12.com
One day passes start at $35 for adults, $10 for kids, and $75 for three-day passes. You can buy tickets here. You also see the list of Hallmark stars expected to be there. It's like a who's who of Hallmark Christmas movie stars.
