Storyline

With the threat of having to close her father's candy store, Wendy and her six-year-old daughter Grace travel to the big city in hopes of making extra holiday cash to save their family store. When she's offered a job in the toy department of Wolman's, the city's biggest department store, Wendy can't wait! Her excitement doesn't last long when the store's new corporate fixer, Teanna, progressively destroys the Christmas spirit throughout the store, replacing Santa with hunky male underwear models surrounded by elfin "babes." What no one is aware of is that Teanna has in fact sacked the real Santa. Wendy reaches out to the old man, but it seems even he is giving up hope. With her daughter losing faith in the holiday, Wendy realizes the true meaning of Christmas needs to return to Wolman's before it is too late. Written by Anonymous/edited by statmanjeff

Trivia

The only time the store name "Wolman's" appears is within the inappropriate Beefcake Santa video. See more »

Goofs

With everyone deeply displeased with Teanna's cost-cutting measures (axing Christmas bonuses, and day care for working employees and busy customers), it's a wonder that at least Tom doesn't at some point question who's footing the bill for Teanna's bottles of champagne. See more »

Quotes

Tom Wolman: He's also drawing up plans for some new departments. One of 'em's a candy shop. I thought we could call it "Carroll's Candy."
Wendy Carroll: That is so sweet.

This film is cute. In this film Wendy Carroll is a young mother. Wendy is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Its "Great Recession" time and her family business is failing. She refuses to watch it die. Her father started the business and has passed on. She along with her mother are trying to keep it afloat. With foreclosure looming she decides to take a chance.

So Wendy & her daughter move to the city. Wendy moves in with her long time friend Angie. Angie then helps Wendy get a job a job at a department store.

Unknown to Angie the store is in trouble as well. The stores board of directors have brought in Teanna. Teeanna is a win at all cost person. She however goes on warpath against Wendy when she sees that Tom (The Stores Owner) is falling for Wendy. Teeanna not only wants to be with Tom but she also trying to take over the store.

Now this is a film for the family but "Men will hate this". Most teen's will hate this.

The film is for people that like Christmas movies. If you are a person who loves "Family Traditions" then this movie is for you
