Mason (Gig Morton)’s Mom doesn’t have much of the spirit of Christmas.  She uses holiday decorations to spur sales in her Real Estate business, but she thinks it’s a bother since people do not buy over Christmas, and it’s hard to reach the bankers and escrow people.  Mason talks her into taking a Christmas week visit to Grandpa who moved to a little town called Hollyville that is not on any map.  Out in the middle of nowhere, Hollyville is full of the holiday spirit!  Her Dad, a former banker is now a short order cook in the Egg Nog Cafe in town.  Grandpa is full of the holiday spirit.  But the strangest thing is the secretive business NP Enterprises that is certainly strange out in the middle of nowhere.  Turns out it’s a loading point for Santa’s round the world flight.  Mason, along with a little help from some other firiends, do their best to help Mason’s grandpa into winning over his mother and helping her to remember and to believe.

This is a new movie to me.  I have not seen this one before, even though it came out in 2008.  But it’s certainly a fun, feel good movie.  It’s light and fun, and doesn’t require a lot of emotion or downers.  Just a relaxing view into Santa’s world.  I think any of us would hesitate to move to H9llyville if we could.  I know I’d love to be there!
