( You may want to set your DVR for that one).  You can catch also catch the feel-good holiday movie on Amazon & Hulu.

The movie was filmed predominately at the River Place Shops in Frankenmuth, as well as the Bavarian Inn and the Rupprecht Vacation Haus. The filming offered up a chance to feature many locals as extras including yours truly. ( I made my debut walking across the bridge and waving. Hold the applause, please. lol).

Filmed in March 2019, the film stars Lana McKissack and Kimberly Daugherty, familiar actors in the world of Lifetime and Hallmark movies.  The holiday flick also features Brant Daugherty known for his work on Fifty Shades Freed (2018) and Pretty Little Liars.

A Christmas Movie Christmas tells the tale of two sisters who are transported to the magical Christmas town of Holiday Falls and learn the true meaning of the season. Eve is a Christmas movie fanatic and dreams of having a movie-perfect Christmas with a movie-perfect boyfriend. On Christmas Eve, when Eve and her cynical sister Lacy make wishes to Santa, they wake up in Christmas Town and find themselves trapped inside a Christmas movie where they are the stars. (Cue falling snow)
