Now that the gluttony and ritual of Thanksgiving have come and gone, ’tis finally the season for indulging in Hallmark Christmas/holiday movies. Now, I understand that many of you may consider the channel’s “films” (if you can call them that) a low form of entertainment. But gosh darn it, they are predictable! There are not many tropes that compare when it comes to formulaicity, and that’s a blessing and a curse. It’s great that I can multitask with one of the Christmas romps on the television, but they’re certainly not giving any exciting twists, turns, or conspiracies. Despite this, the genre has amassed a huge number of fans, as evidenced by a wildly popular string of tweets from @shylawhittney.
