OK, I admit it.....

Hallmark commercials make me cry .....

How about you?


Yesterday I watched movies while I crocheted a Christmas gift for my granddaughter...

First up was The Color Purple.  I hadn't watched it in years, and of course know everything that's in it, but it still made me cry. 




Then I found a sweet sounding movie on the Hallmark Channel....  uh-oh, you know you better get out the kleenex! The movie, Christmas with Holly, turned out to be very sweet and heart-warming and, yeah, the leaky eyes made their appearance a time or two.



But what REALLY got to me were the commercials!! Hallmark is known for their sappy commercials (I can say this, I worked in a Hallmark store at one time) and during the holidays there are so many! Just leave the hankies and kleenex out at the ready!

This one with mama and baby bird was one of the ones shown during the movie and, yeah, the waterworks began -- see if you can watch it with dry eyes....




And, of course, a Hallmark movie played on the Hallmark channel -- 
well, you know it was jam-packed with tear jerker commercials!


Now dry your eyes, 'cause


I do, of course!! 

(yeah, yeah, it's a Hallmark card.....)


(disclaimer -- this post is not really a plug for Hallmark, it just seems that way. LOL!)

Yeah, yeah, my eyes are wet! I think anyone who has a daughter would be hard put to stay dry-eyed. Thanks for sharing your blues.

Happy Blue Monday, Sarah.

I'm totally a sucker for those ads and movies too. They ALWAYS make me cry. My hubby thinks I'm nuts :).

Thank-you for the Good Christmas Wishes and for the sweet birdie video. Yep, it's a tear jerker! Love both movies, too, thank goodness for a lap full of crochet to catch the falling tears.

Happy Blue Monday and Merry Christmas!

aaaawwwww....geee!
That's some wonderful video of the mother and baby birds.

Nancy said...

Oh yes, I've been known to shed a tear or two for a commercial...mostly for those SPCA ones.

LV said...

I enjoyed that show as well. I do not have the Hallmark channel on my TV, but watch all their tear jerking specials.

Commercials are dangerous! Being almost 8 months pregnant, I cry over everything. That Carter's commercial with the little girl talking about her first few years gets me every time.

I'm a sensitive sap who cries at just about anything so I knew better than to click on the bird commercial! :)

Oh, yeah! I needed to grab a tissue after watching that one. I miss my little girl (now 25).

I thought the commercial was cute and all, and thought, "only mothers would cry at time" and then the birdie fly away. And the tears started! Wow! What writers! {:-D

I haven't watched those two movies yet. But the video clip of the bird is so touching that it made me cry.
