Hallmark Will Show A Christmas Movie Marathon During Coronavirus Outbreak
The ongoing coronavirus outbreak continues to force more and more of us to self-isolate at home, meaning there are plenty of bored people out there.
If you're one of those currently climbing up the walls while trying to keep a safe distance from others, then Hallmark has come to the rescue with three days of Christmas movies to keep you entertained.
Just what we all need, right?
Starting tomorrow (20 March), those with access to the US TV channel will be able to watch a plethora of its festive favourites, including Christmas at Dollywood, A Royal Christmas, and A Shoe Addict's Christmas, which will no doubt warm the soul during these uncertain times.
Admittedly this is going to be much easier to watch if you're based in the United States, but if you're able to access the channel, the full schedule is as follows:

The move comes as governments around the world urge people to stay at home if at all possible, save for essential travel to buy food or medical supplies, or to help those in need.
In a bid to reduce the further spread of coronavirus, the UK government announced yesterday that all schools would be closing this week and that all examinations would be cancelled.
Gavin Williamson, the education secretary for England, told parliament on Wednesday: "After schools shut their gates on Friday afternoon they will remain closed until further notice. This will be for all children, except for those of key workers and for children who are the most vulnerable."
