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.

Crown for Christmas
After getting fired from her job as a maid at a ritzy New York City
hotel, Allie reluctantly accepts a temp gig as the governess to a young
girl who is part of a powerful family in Europe that lives in an actual
castle. After arriving, Allie learns the girl is named Princess Theodora
and her father is Maximillian, the King of Winshire. The King informs
Allie that the Princess has a tendency to terrorize authority figures, a
predilection that has grown worse since her mother’s death. Yet
governess and Princess wind up hitting it off while at the same time a
spark forms between Allie and Max. However, Countess Celia is expecting
to wed the King. Will Max take a stand for his feelings for Allie and
make it truly a merry Christmas for all (or at least, most)?
Our Two Cents:
tale of the governess and single dad falling in love with a Christmas
twist. So far, this might be one of the best of the 2015 movies. Can't
say that the, ahem, casting doesn't have anything to do with it. There's
something about English men named Rupert. Look it up. They tend to be
Anyhoo, cute movie, great grand gesture at the end... Don't miss this one.
Side Note: We greatly appreciated the authentic English accents in this movie.
