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.

The Christmas Parade
Hailee Anderson, the famous talk show host, is
preparing for the holiday season by working; she's planning her very
important TV show, her Christmas special. Already a scrooge, Hailee is
even more miserable when she finds out on live TV that her real-estate fiancée Jason is cheating on her! To clear her head, she goes on
a drive and ends up in Carver Bend, Connecticut, and unfortunately crashes
through a local judge's fence. When is sentenced to community service, witness and rescuer Logan recommends she work with him at the local art center where they are building a float to win the contest at the annual Christmas Parade.
While Hailee bonds with the locals, the art center kids, and grows
closer to Logan, she begins to learn the magic and joy of Christmas.
Our Two Cents:
Shamelessly stealing Winona Ryder’s line from Reality Bites: this movie is so cheesy you can’t watch it without crackers. Full of christmas cliches including the Scroogy saboteur, a classic Grinch transformation, and sappy romance, it’s a perfect candidate for a Christmas guilty pleasure.
