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.

Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade
Chicago native Emily Jones (Autumn Reeser) loves her city, and has
dedicated her career to coordinating its beloved Thanksgiving Day parade
every year. This year, Emily is hoping for a memorable holiday and
anticipating a long-awaited proposal from her long-distance boyfriend
Brian (Ben Cotton). Then, the parade director hires a wealthy
development consultant, Henry Williams (Antonio Cupo), to analyze the
finances of the parade and increase profits.
Immediately writing Henry off as a privileged playboy, Emily
worries he will ruin the joyful spirit of the parade, not knowing how
much it means to the city like she does. As the two are forced to work
together to pull off a successful production, Emily is determined to
show Henry she’s in charge. But when Emily suffers a sudden setback, she
starts to rely on Henry to help her through it, and suddenly realizes
she might be falling for him. As Thanksgiving draws nearer, can Emily
confess her true feelings and end the feud while still putting on the
parade of her dreams?
Our Two Cents:
There is something about Emily's personality that isn't as likable as she should be, but that being said, this movie isn't bad. In fact, it is a bit cute, we gotta admit.
