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

I like the movie! It is not drama, you just relax watching Ashley Williams performance as Wendy and young actress playing her daughter Grace. I like the lovely smiles, decorations, and scenes in the movie. Well it's all about Christmas, so it is a bit sugar, but I like this sort of sugar in Christmas. The movie has some weak 2nd characters, but for me this story is about Wendy and her daughter enjoying the Christmas in big City and they know how to have fun with it. I think this movie is close to "A Princess for Christmas" and "Borrowed Hearts" in spirit.
Need a drama with a strong scenery? Skip it. Want to relax? Watch it.
9/10 for the good Christmas mood.
