Storyline

Newly widowed Kathy plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband. The only Christmas tradition she will observe is baking cookies for her friends, a passion since she was a child. When Kathy meets handsome Christmas tree shop owner Tim, their undeniable chemistry - along with an ornament Tim gives her that symbolizes hope-helps Kathy open up to the joys of the season again. With the support of her best friend Jenna, and the budding relationship with Tim, Kathy begins to embrace the hopeful message of the ornament. Although Kathy wants to take a chance on Tim, she struggles to find the balance between preserving the memory of her husband and moving on with her own future. Is the Christmas ornament a sign that she can have a hopeful future? Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Tim tells Kathy that he was first attracted to her when they first met, when he saw her place upright a small angel ornament on a table in his gift shop so that it would not fall off the table. When Kathy straightened the ornament, Tim was not in the gift shop, and based on the setup of the store there is no way he could have seen her do it through the window of the store even if he was just outside.

Thumbs Down!.....ALL too phony!...and dull!
9 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

"AWFUL!"...yes! Annoying and boring!...the stars / co-star, the plot, the lines, everything! In every one of her movies, Kellie Martin has a habit of mumbling...speaking inaudibly, fast, and in spurts. Just when you think she is finished saying something, she continues again and again in spurts.

Jewel Staite must have a fear of hair stylists and stage wardrobe experts! In every one of her movies, her hair and clothes are atrocious! So apparently she must be the one who decides her appearance. She should be embarrassed with the "sloppy" look! No, it's not the "natural" or "casual" look...it's just plain sloppy...very detracting in what is supposed to be a decent movie.

The plot was totally pathetic, as were all the players. It seemed as if the plot didn't know where to go next...as it went from the tree sales, to the bike store, to her home, to ice skating, to cookies, to the relationship, and around and around again...and again and again.

Her "amazing" cookies were over the top, too unbelievable.

There was no sense of sincere feelings extended about her loss (but perhaps I missed it when she mumbled). Anyone who has lost a beloved spouse, is not even considering a romantic relationship within a year...much less become disappointed and jealous when she thinks the guy is interested in someone else.

And "Tim" was just too obsessed with "Kathie," someone he hardly knew...and who really had nothing enticing to form a relationship.
