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 Thanksgiving House
When Boston lawyer Mary Ross (Emily Rose) inherits a house in
Plymouth from her late aunt, she has no idea she may have inherited a
historical treasure. Mary's initial desire to sell the house is
supported by her slick boyfriend, Rick (Adam Kaufman), but she is
shocked to discover local historian Everett Mather (Justin Bruening) has
evidence that her house is located on the site of the first
Thanksgiving! With the house turning into an unexpected tourist
attraction, putting Mary in the media spotlight at the prying of
unscrupulous gossip blogger Ashleigh Mulligan (Cerina Vincent), Everett
tries to prove his theory and Mary tries to prove anything that will
keep the house in her hands. Suddenly, Mary clings to the house as an
artifact of her own history before her happy childhood memories were
tarnished by her father's abandonment.
Ultimately, Mary must decide if it is more important to preserve
the house’s historical ties or make it the site of many happy
Thanksgivings to come. What will she choose?
Our Two Cents:
While this isn't really a CHRISTMAS movie, per se, it still has all the great nuances that you love, as you can see by the labels below. So this is why we like The Thanksgiving House. First, it's nice to give Thanksgiving it's own movie. Second, it has a sweet love story which is why we watch these movies, right? And third, it has a great message about family.
