It’s here!

Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas lineup has officially arrived more than 100 days before Christmas.

As much as I love the holidays and cannot wait to cozy up by the fire with my spiked hot chocolate to watch these gems, I have to admit it is a little early to be talking about the holidays.

I’m still just trying to take in all of the pumpkin spice items in all of their glory.

However, it’s Hallmark’s 10th anniversary of Countdown to Christmas, so I can’t blame them for being excited to share all these fantastic movies with us!

To celebrate the milestone, the network is adding a whopping 24 new movies to the lineup (plus 16 on the Hallmark Mystery Channel) for a total of 40 new holiday offerings. That’s sure to keep you busy through the cold winter months.

The festivities kick off on Saturday, October 26 (5 days before Halloween) with “Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses” starring The Vampire Diaries/ The Originals/ Legacies actor, Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman), who is new to the Hallmark holiday family!

They start Friday, October 25th on Hallmark Mystery.

It wraps up on Saturday, December 28, with a NYE-themed film aptly titled, “New Year, New Me.”

We have a few favorites on the lineup so far:

“Merry & Bright” stars Full House favorite Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), “Write Before Christmas,” which brings together One Tree Hill alums Chad Michael Murray and Torrey Devito (who also stars in Chicago Med), “Christmas in Rome” with Mean Girls’ Lacey Chabert and The Bold Type’s Sam Page, “Christmas Town” with Fuller House’s oldest sis Candance Cameron Bure (DJ Tanner), “A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas” with She’s All That’s Rachel Leigh Cook, and “A Christmas Miracle” with Tamera Mowry-Housley.

Queen's Gambit Causes Major Spike in Chess Board Sales

Queen’s Gambit is taking the chess world by storm.

In a case of art influences life, sales of chess boards have skyrocketed thanks to the Netflix limited series. 

The series, set in the 1950s, trails the rise of a young orphan, Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), who finds chess to be an outlet, leading her to become a female prodigy. 

Spin Master, a Toronto-based toy merchant, said that chess sales have increased by “triple digits” since the show’s premiere on October 23. 

Goliath Games has also noted a surge of more than 1,000 percent, NPR notes. 

“Our October sales for chess were up 178% over the same period last year,” Mary Higbe, director of marketing at Goliath Games, said. “That’s a big increase. But something else unexpected happened at the end of the month. Now, she says, “our chess sales are up 1,048%.

EBay has made similar findings, reporting a 215 percent spike in sales of chess sets.

The New York Times found that wooden sets have trumped plastic sets. 

Even before the series debuted, interest in chess sets was spiking due to COVID.

Will this make finding a Christmas present harder?

Toy analyst Gerrick Johnnson told NPR: “Good luck finding a chess set this holiday!”

The popularity also extends to groups such as the US Chess Federation, which revealed that membership also jumped for the first time since the onset of the pandemic. 

To sum it up… 2020 is the year where both chess sets and toilet paper are scarce.
