I may have rated this a half star higher because I'm a pushover for a romantic Christmas movie. The story line was a little predictable for me, because I love to guess what'll happen next, but I'm also a fan of Tom Arnold's effervescent personality. The plot was a classic contrast between cold, greedy worldly desires and warm, loving Christmas traditions. Characters were cast appropriately to convey the obvious "villan," but the ending is kept secret right up to the end of the program. Makes you wish you could visit Santaville this Christmas! Story line includes reconcilliation, generosity, forgiveness, believing, kindness, and determination. Great story for all ages!
