This is worth a batch of homemade cookies.

Hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting, tingling? It's music to our Southern ears. We understand that the thought of Christmas in October, let alone July, is a lot earlier than what many people want to see or read about. It's just never too early for us or Mama or the Hallmark Channel. And while we might not be quite ready to do our gift shopping, casserole making, or tree trimming, we are ready to get in the spirit. It's about the joy of traditions, the gathering of family and friends, and the true meaning of the season – and the best part is that we can watch it all unfold from the living room sofa. No pressure to plan. Now that's pretty magical, and why we're extra excited about tonight.

Enter Candace Cameron Bure who will host a special one-hour preview tonight on the Hallmark Channel (10pm EST; 9pm CST) to give us a sneak peek into what's really in store for us this season. Expect her to share some behind-the-scenes secrets, and to also reunite with a few unexpected old friends. (Spoiler alert: This might involve Stephanie Tanner and Rebecca Katsopolis.) Bure will get us set for the 21 brand-new Christmas movies that will start on Saturday, October 28 and go all the way until Saturday, December 30. Bake a batch of Bourbon Balls, whip up some hot cocoa, and enjoy tonight's preview.
