Storyline

It's the December holiday season, Christy Dickinson's favorite time of the year, which doesn't exactly mesh with her stock broker boyfriend Peter Carlson, who doesn't understand the joys of Christmas. She knows what she wants in life down to the very exacting order she places at her regular coffee house. One bigger item in what she wants is a move from the sales department to design at Solomon Wind Toy Company (SWT) where she loves working in that connection of the joy toys bring to children at Christmas. The scuttlebutt from Samantha Ames, her best friend and the president's executive assistant, is that the opening in design is hers if her sales pitch to Toys for All's CEO David Berger is successful. While the sales side of the pitch seems to impress David, she will have to impress a second time when David invites her to his holiday party in just over a week on December 24th, when he expects to see a design concept and the party where she agreed to lead many of the holiday traditions...

Charmingly original.
5 August 2020 | by MIssM19See all my reviews

Christy loves Christmas, and she is putting a presentation at work for someone who is Jewish, which she knows nothing about. Jonathan is Jewish and her girlfriend's family celebrates Christmas, which he doesn't known anything about. So, they make a pact to teach each other about their respective holidays.

I love this concept. I really enjoyed the movie. It was quite educational, at least for me, someone who knew NOTHING about Hanukkah, plus add the romance and you have a winner! There are a lot of movies about Christmas out there. I've seen one or two with Jewish theme, but this had both, and it works!

Great chemistry between the leads. I would definitely watch them again in the future. She is cheerful, but not in a cringey way and he is quite charming. I definitely recommend it!
