I am just going to start this review by confessing: I am a Christmas junkie. I love it, all of it, the Christmas specials, the feelings they bring, holiday gatherings, decorating, all of it! The thought of having a perfect Christmas drives me all year long! This year I have had the privilege of reviewing Christmas stuff- I’m in way up to my ears with happiness over this one!!!
Now, on to my thoughts! The movie has a great story! Having seen probably a hundred Christmas movies, I can honestly say that I haven’t seen this story before! I loved the story and the message behind it! The set designers did a great job of making it a believable little town and homes! The actors could use some work, but then perhaps the fact that they aren’t household names is what makes this special. The film makes you feel good and even amidst mediocre acting you want to watch, to hear the story, to see it unfold.
Overall, I can’t turn down any holiday movie, good or bad. This one has a great story, an actual unique one which is a rarity. While this probably won’t be your new holiday favorite, it is one you will feel good watching. Personally, I enjoyed it. I am a sucker for a good Holiday story!
