If you are a Christmas DVD collector like I am, this one will be a nice addition to your collection. Without saying too much about the story, I can say that I was pleased with the performances of the main characters. The young girl that plays the daughter steals every scene she is in and she makes her experience believable for the viewing audience. She is a natural. The towns people are the typical variety of crazy personalities that you have encountered in many of the other holiday movies. The love story, the conflict, and the happy ending are what makes us go back year after year and watch these Christmas movies. This one is no exception.
