As a child, Michael Walker wished every day could be Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can't muster any joy for the holidays, despite encouragement from his playful wife and well-intentioned parents. But when his young son faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick gives Michael a gift and instills in him the courage to find the joy that he lost.

Did You Know?


In the scene where Harry Connick Jr is trying to take the large snowman upstairs, the snowman is smiling. When you see the head of the snowman being stuffed up the attic stairs, the top down shot shows the snowman frowning. May have been intentional to show the snowman's unhappiness. See more »


After Michael dodges the reindeer and dives off of his bicycle with his back to the camera, one shoulder of the actor's (or stunt double's) hoodie is covered in leaves and twigs, and his other shoulder is clean. However, when the camera angle changes, his previously clean shoulder is now covered in leaves. See more »

It was a dream of a movie, and I didn't want to wake up! The cast blended well, and wove a story that is refreshing and magical. The musical selections were on point, and never seemed forced. The themes were well balanced, and flowed together like an orchestra. It was a wonderful movie for the entire family to enjoy. This will remain on my play list. Now if I can only find out the name and singer to the song towards the end..... "I get totally wrapped up, wrapped up in Christmas. It's so amazing. I love the feeling." I highly recommend this for either family night, or a good solo movie. Hope to see more movies like this.
