Christmas in the Smokies is a modern-day Christmas classic set in the beautiful Smoky Mountains that tells the story of one family's journey to save their historic berry farm against all odds during one fateful holiday season.

Calvin Campbell is a retired baseball player and a father to Katie Campbell,an independent teenager. One day when he goes shopping for alcohol at the local market he meets an employee of the market. He talks to produce and is shocked when produce gives him a hug..
when Jesus is not even mentioned during the movie. Granted, many prefer to watch a movie that's a feel good movie that isn't "preachy" (you can get a ton of those anywhere), but the gospel could have (and should have) been presented at least during the funeral scene. Live your dash? What does that mean? What about life beyond the grave (provided by a loving God through the death of His son on the cross)? Sorry if that's too preachy for many of you, but that is what life is really about. I do like the scene when Calvin and his daughter discuss prayer, but wish it had gone a little further.
