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 on the Bayou
Emotionally scarred by a failed
marriage, Katherine has plunged into her successful career as a NYC
marketing executive, but her workaholic ways are taking a toll on her 8
year old son, Zack. Concerned over Zack's increasing disaffection,
Katherine decides they will spend Christmas in her home town in
Louisiana's bayou country, where her mother, Lilly, is soon match-making
with a vengeance. When Caleb, Katherine's old admirer, tries to
rekindle a childhood romance and convince her to move home, Katherine is
torn between the bright lights of the big city and the quiet, gentler
rhythms of her Southern roots. But a small Christmas miracle,
orchestrated by the mysterious Papa Noel, convinces Katherine that her
heart belongs back in the bayou where she was raised.
(Summary from Lifetime)
Our Two Cents:
Many of these movies have a major motion picture counterpart, and this one is a holiday Hope Floats. This movie (and Tyler Hilton) will win you over with it's southern charm and you might just start considering making a trip to the bayou yourself.
