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.

Emily (Faith Ford) misses her daughter Heather (Emma Lahana), who is
attending college in Boston. Since her father died, Heather is sensitive
to her mom’s dependence on long-standing holiday traditions. This
Christmas, Heather has planned a trip to Phoenix with her boyfriend, but
tells her mother she is staying on campus to study.
After Emily arranges a house-swap with Charles (Tom Cavanagh), an
English professor from Boston who wants Washington State’s solitude in
order to finish his novel, Emily hops on a flight to Boston to surprise
Heather for Christmas. Unaware of the house swap, Emily’s best friend,
Faith (Gabrielle Miller) walks in on Charles at Emily’s house and in
Boston, Ray, Charles’ brother (Gil Bellows) responds to a 911 call only
to find Emily at Charles’ condo. Will Christmas travel calamities lead
to cross-country romances? Or have there been one too many surprises
Our Two Cents:
So, we started this thinking, This is just a The Holiday rip off! But we ended up pretty much loving it. We could go into why, but just trust us and watch it.
