The Twelve Trees of Christmas

Cheri just found that her cherished local library is set for demolition the week after Christmas. She sets out on a mission to save the library by getting together the residents of her Manhattan neighborhood and faithful attendees of the library to participate in a Christmas tree contest.

Carrie Blackford only lives because of her career as an event planner in New York City. Her life automatically changes after car accident as a result of a snowstorm.

You will have to watch the rest of the movie to find out what happens. This is a great movie that will make a great gift for someone special or for a family. Check out the reviews on Amazon. Stars include Lindy Booth, Derek McGrath and Paul McGillion.

A Christmas Wish (2010)

This was a hallmark movie I saw last year that was really touching and showed me the different hardships that families go through at Christmas. It is about a woman who was abandoned by her husband who left her without any money and she had two daughters and a stepson to take care of. It shows the journey and process she had to go through to make it, but in the end people made sure she had her Christmas wish. This is one of the most real holiday hallmark movie I have ever seen.

Christmas Angel

This movie is very inspiring and it gave me thoughtful ways to help those struggling around us. It is about a shy single woman has a hard time finding a job, so her neighbor presented her with a job offer that will also give her an opportunity to help strangers in their time of need. Her neighbor also helps her in building a romantic relationship with a magazine writer. It is an absolutely great movie. It shows you the true meaning of christmas.

A Christmas Snow

I really enjoyed this movie. This movie is about a woman Kathleen, who refused to celebrate Christmas because she has carried the memory of her father abandoning her and her mother on Christmas Eve. She blamed her mother for that night . Now a blizzard has kept Kathleen stuck in her home with two strangers until Christmas. Who are these two strangers and how do they tie into your past? You will have to watch the movie to find out.
