Storyline

Holly, blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group's leader, Marci, Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure.

A Perfect Film
22 May 2017 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

This is a great film. It is just about a singing contest. No major drama here. The film is about family and trying to stay connected to your family's traditions.

In this film the local Christmas Carolers (The Bells) Singing group has an opening. When Holly auditions she is clearly the best performer but she doesn't make the group, The Groups leader (Marci) is clearly jealous of Holly's talent and allows lesser talent join in. What huts Holly is the fact her own mother started "The Bells" but she can't get in.

Upon the news that she can't join she ends up starting a rival group. Now "The Bells" have to compete with "The Mistle-tones" ti sing at the annual "Deck the Mall" Christmas Eve Spectacular.

Very family safe. If you want to watch a great film puts this on any time of the year.
