Since we’ve no place to go, Hallmark Channel is letting it snow.

Doing its part to ease the anxieties of self-quarantined viewers, the cable network will air a marathon of Christmas movies from March 20-22, TVLine has learned.

The “We Need a Little Christmas” marathon will include 27 original holiday films, beginning with the Candace Cameron Bure-led A Christmas Detour on Friday, March 20 at 12 pm ET. The lineup concludes with Christmas in Rome, starring Lacey Chabert and Sam Page, on Sunday, March 22 at 6 pm ET.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which has shut down production on more than 100 series, networks are finding new ways to bring content to socially distanced viewers. Multiple late-night programs, including The Tonight Show and The Late Show, are recording segments from the hosts’ homes, while Today‘s Savannah Guthrie is co-anchoring the show from her basement after cold-like symptoms kept her away from NBC’s studio.
