It's Christmas Eve, and a snowstorm is blowing through the small town of Summit View. The roads are virtually empty, except for a group of vehicles that get stuck on a remote road on the outskirts of town. The seven people involved decide to take refuge in a nearby abandoned church. Those seven are: James, an ex-priest who is running away from his life and his vocation following the death of his wife and child; Darryl, an EMT who dreams of becoming a doctor, but who believes that dream will never materialize because of his dyslexia; wealthy married couple Drake and Madeleine, whose marriage and its problems are centered on money; newlyweds Nick and Christy, who find that they are arguing more and more ever since their wedding three days ago; and the only local among the bunch, Joe, who is separated from his wife Mary, largely because of their differing views of how to manage their family, most specifically in dealing with their autistic son, Matt.

A good cast make this one a decent Christmas TV movie.
Eight people get stuck in an abandoned church in a snowstorm on Christmas Eve. Here they evaluate their lives in the usual Christmas movie way.
You know what you are going to get in most Christmas TV movies and the success of them in my opinion rests on the performance of the cast and the script. Personally I thought the acting was pretty good in this one, especially from Aaron Pearl, and the characters were more interesting than a lot of other Christmas movies. Although maybe a touch predictable the script stayed just on the right side of schmaltz.
The wonderful snowy settings were an added bonus and added nicely to the good overall Christmas feel.
This is a very easy watch, a film that puts you in the mood for Christmas and on that basis I think it does it's job. It's got snow, a Christmas Tree, Christmas carols, church bells and characters called Mary and Joseph. What's not to like. Although nowhere near perfect, for it's type, I thought Christmas Miracle was slightly above average.
