Storyline

A comedic family film that follows MACKENZIE, an angst-ridden 14 year old girl (Abby Corrigan) whose mother died during childbirth. Mackenzie and her father Ash (David Garrett), who is a strong caring man and loves his family, partake on a journey to the quirky South Georgia town of McClellan to visit his sister Sally (Mandi Christine Kerr) for the first time since Mackenzie was little. On the way down, Mackenzie is sullen and irritable because she has to spend her Christmas away from the city (Atlanta) with relatives she doesn't like in a town she is not fond of. Upon arrival to Sally's house, Sally's 8 year old son Tyler (Luke Westerfield) excitedly talks to Mackenzie about Christmas and the Preceding week's Duck Days festivities which Ash reveals is a big tradition in this tiny town. While celebrating the festivities and shopping for Christmas gifts, Mackenzie and Tyler go to see Santa. He is not at his post, but the two teens run into him in the local café. When Tyler is too ...

Review Date 2/18/2018

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. I HAVE OVER 400 REVIEWS OF "CHRISTMAS RELATED FILMS & SPECIALS" WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Some movies go on way too long. Tv-Movies often get ruined because they are cut to fit a time period. They are padded out but this is not the case. this film runs a little over one hour and not a moment seems too forced.

In this film a sullen teen named Mackenzie is an angst-ridden 15 year old girl (Abby Corrigan) whose mother died during childbirth. Mackenzie and her father Ash (David Garrett), are spending Christmas in a South Georgia town of McClellan to visit his sister Sally (Mandi Christine Kerr) for the first time since Mackenzie was little.

Mackenzie however rather spend time with her friends but these 3 days will be her best memories she will ever have.
