With the help of Pete Kennedy played by Patrick Creery , the eccentric head chef at the soup kitchen, Crystal and Derek begin to spend more time together outside of work.

Even though Hallmark Christmas films are cookie cutter and the storylines are a bunch of cut-and-paste jobs, Hallmark also knows what the people want. Viewers are left with the impression that they become one big, happy family in the entirely predictable but still immensely satisfying way of every great Christmas romance. Now adults, they work together at the same elementary school and still have yet to stop competing over every little thing. Finn uses that to his advantage, inviting Scout and Willa along with him while he does some sketching for the next book in the series coming out next year. Dear Santa is currently available on Canadian Netflix, , and it can be rented or purchased on Amazon.

A Bramble House Christmas is available on iTunes or purchased on Amazon. It has the stereotypical privileged woman coming to find meaning in life outside of a shopping mall, an adorable little girl plotting to find her dad a wife, and a down-to-earth single father who is equal parts charming, adorable, and sweet. As Willa tries to set aside her worries of finding a new nursing job now that Greg is gone, she finds herself becoming fast friends with the aging but headstrong, self-sufficient Mable Bramble. In fact, Haydn-Jones has starred in four Christmas movies released between 2011-2017. Christina looks stricken as she realizes who he is and how she likely only made things worse for both Cooper and Kurt by allowing him to be fired.
With some help from new friends Willa makes along the way, a tentative romance begins between she and Finn. On her way out of the store, she accidentally bumps into a young boy, Cooper, who just missed seeing Santa to tell him his special Christmas wish. Throughout it all, Finn and Willa try to fight the chemistry bubbling between them. David Haydn-Jones plays Derek Gowen in this movie, single father to Olivia played by Emma Duke.

Now in a rush, she leaves the decision up to Henry as she scurries away, and Kurt is officially fired. There are a number of reasons to watch : the heartwarming romances, the spirit of Christmas that permeates them from start to happily ever after, the desire to see which productions have actually tried to make it look like Christmas even though they were filming in the summer, and, of course, the incredible predictability of every single movie.
Through a series of coincidental meetings with Cooper — which leads to Christina spending time with Kurt — she eventually re-hires Kurt to help her with the Christmas display. That is, Henry says, unless Christina sees it differently. Unfortunately for Christie, despite the help she gets from her mom, she remains helpless in the kitchen.

Plus, schmaltz and Christmas go together like peanut butter and jelly. For a holiday movie, My Christmas Dream features a more realistic story line than most. Meanwhile, Finn and Scout become fast friends.
