Christmas Town was Built on Garbage
3 January 2015 | by fishfryluv2See all my reviews

Christmas Town is a movie about a Christmas town. The town is all about Christmas. There are people who love Christmas in this town. But what the casual viewer doesn't realize is that the entire town looks a giant parking lot outside of a walmart with buildings that were built with garbage. The people who live in Christmas town must have all kinds of diseases and infections because of the structure of the entire town being made of garbage. All in all, the woman in Christmas town discovered the meaning of Christmas, found love with a strange guy, and repaired her relationship with her father after defeating him in hand-to-hand combat. I missed some of the movie because I was busy throwing up. Ho ho ho!
