The Christmas Note is an amiable Hallmark film. Gretchen and her young son Ethan move back to her hometown to be near her mother. Her soldier husband Kyle is recovering from injuries in a military hospital and is hoping to be discharged soon.

Gretchen has to deliver a message to her new neighbour Melissa and tell her that her mother has passed away. Gretchen offers support when Melissa discovers a note left behind by her mother. It tells her that her mother had an older child that was given up for adoption.

Gretchen and Melissa undertake a search for this sibling who they think will turn out to be a long lost brother and this search brings them close. At the same time Ethan has written a letter to Santa who wants his father home for Christmas.

There is little that will come as a surprise in this movie but the acting has conviction and the characters are likable.
