Melissa Joan Hart,
Warm story of the rewards of a positive spirit and turning the other cheek
This very heartwarming story involves a widow who's family through several generations have owned and operated a little candy store/factory in a small picturesque town. The widow(Katherine Helmond) has 2 children, one adopted from a deceased employee. Enter Scrooge-like Mr Snyder (Caesar) who decides he needs more revenue and plans to make big changes. Refusing to believe anything could happen to her beloved Candy shop, the widow continues with her busiest of all seasons.
The snow scenes in the quaint little town and candy shop are a balm to the spirit. The excellent performance as the crotchety,cranky Mr Snyder combined with the ever cheerful positive thinking widow (Helmond) make this a great addition to anyones Christmas collection.
