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 at Cartwright's
With the holiday season at hand, single mom Nicky Talbot is unemployed
and struggling to afford a nice Christmas with her 8-year-old daughter.
Hearing that Cartwright’s Department Store is hiring temporary holiday
help, Nicky rushes in to apply, but is rejected by Senior VP Fiona
Aldrich, who considers Nicky a threat to the relationship she hopes to
have with Bill, a charming and handsome store manager. In a whimsical
turn of events, Harry Osbourne, claiming to be a consultant from
corporate headquarters, encourages Nicky to dress up and begin working
as Cartwright’s store Santa Claus. With the magical help of Harry, Nicky
keeps the job, but nobody knows Cartwright’s Santa Claus is a woman.
Will she be able to keep her job if her secret gets out?
Our Two Cents:
Our only real complaint with this one, because it was pretty darn cute, is that we wished the main character had a little more backbone and didn't wilt under pressure from Fiona (who obviously has a vendetta against her) quite so easily. But otherwise it was a fun movie, and we recommend it!
