Holiday movies fill our hearts with joy. Between Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas, It's a Wonderful Lifetime (or Fa La La La Lifetime, if you prefer) and ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas, there are so many movies and so little time.
To help you, our friends, we have sacrificed by watching as many of these movies as possible and will give you our two cent review. Hopefully this will help you know what you do or do not want to watch.

Christmas in Boston
Gina and Seth became pen pals when they were in the 6th grade. It is now 13 years later, and they
still have been writing to each other but have not yet met. Gina is a
journalist covering a scandal story on a big toymaker. Seth works as a toy inventor for the same toymaker. When a big toy convention comes to Boston, Seth proposes a meetup with Gina. As the day nears, Seth and Gina both chicken out, and send their best friends who both have completely opposite personalities, Matt and Ellen, in their places.
Meanwhile, doing research and interviews for her story, the real Gina begins interviewing the real Seth, and sparks begin to fly. Will Gina and Seth realize that they are perfect for one another and they don't have to hide who they are?
Our Two Cents:
ABC Family tends to be kind of hit or miss with us (for Christmas and regular movies). This is one that they did right. The side story with Matt and Ellen is just as fun as watching Seth and Gina (in some ways, perhaps more). Our only complaint about this one is the underwhelming ending, but it's still perfectly enjoyable.
