Storyline

Widow Emily (Faith Ford) calls her BFF Faith (Gabrielle Miller) for sympathy when Emily's daughter Heather won't return to Oregon from college in Boston for Xmas. Emily will be alone in Oregon for Xmas because divorcee Faith now lives in a distant city. Emily trades houses for Xmas with Charles, a Boston professor. Charles is desperate to break his writer's block on his latest novel overdue at the publisher. Emily's attempt to surprise Heather for Xmas goes awry because Heather has secretly flown to Phoenix with her boyfriend. Adding insult to injury, Emily sets off Charles' silent burglar alarm. Summoned by the security company, Charles' brother Ray unlocks Charles' door and causes the police to walk in on Emily. Meanwhile, Faith tries to surprise Emily in Oregon for Xmas and she walks in on Charles. Romance buds in Boston while things are icy in Oregon. Written by C. Comly

Heartwarming!
27 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LOVED this film....ESPECIALLY loved characters played by Faith Ford and Gabrielle Miller....perfect film for the holiday season! Myself, my mom and sister really enjoyed it. A real feel good film, it made you want to bake cookies and decorate your Christmas tree! And the cast excelled with solid performances...hoping this is going to become a holiday tradition, like watching A Christmas Story or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! In this day and age, it's refreshing to watch a film of this quality. Nudity, drugs, sex, and violence do not always have to be included in a film for it to be successful. OR, touch a heart....and Trading Christmas DELIVERS! Kudos, cast, crew, and Hallmark! :)
