You've only got a few days left to cram in all your fall movie marathons and those scary Halloween flicks before full-on Hallmark Christmas mania begins. It's that time of the year where the Hallmark Channel plans to keep us all glued to the couch with their holiday lineup. Not ready to get into Yuletide mode just yet? Trust us, on October 22, you definitely will be.

The feel-good network will air the Countdown to Christmas Preview Show this Sunday, just five days before Countdown to Christmas actually begins on October 27. So, for those of you who have been counting down (literally) to Christmas since this past summer, we have good news for you! You'll have a chance to get a sneak peek at all the festive movies that will air during the annul Countdown to Christmas event. Yes, you read that correctly—21 merry movies guaranteed to put you in a holly jolly mood starting in October.

The one-hour preview special will include your usual Hallmark movie stalwarts, like Candace Cameron Bure, Lori Loughlin, and Jodie Sweetin. You may remember this talented trio when they starred in the popular ABC sitcom Full House and the recent Netflix reboot, Fuller House. But, on October 22, they'll be bringing good tidings and good cheer as hosts of this televised event. You can also expect to see them in a few of these Christmas-themed movies over the next three months. If that wasn't enough to draw you in, Hallmark's very own rescue dog, Happy The Dog, will make a special appearance on the preview show as well.

Tune into Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas Preview Show on Sunday, October 22, at 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
