Elise is not a fan of Christmas. For many years she spent Christmas in New York in a trailer helping to sell the trees from her family tree farm. Now she has a new apartment and a good job in advertising in New York. Just when she thinks that she has left the tree farm behind, everything quickly changes. She is fired from her job because sales are down at her firm. Her parents need her help after her dad dropped a 40 pound turkey (he got it on sale) on his foot. She is also working with a ‘head hunter’ to try to get another job. She’s supposed to be ready within one hour notice for job interviews. She begins working the Christmas tree lot in office attire and heels but later changes to jeans and tennis shoes.
The Christmas season can become better for a person when they can change everything about themselves. Their environment, the people around them and their job even though it’s not their choice. Elise starts out remembering everything she didn’t like about Christmas but now that she is an adult, it could be different? 3 ½* (I liked this movie)
