This is a sweet little Christmas story about Santa who is ready to give up on Christmas.  The people of earth just don’t have the Christmas spirit anymore.  Santa has two daughters, Rudolfa (named after the reindeer, of course)  Now Kristen (Kathy Ireland) is good and Rudolfa (Mary Donnelly-Haskell) is naughty.  But Rudolfa’s older and feels like she deserves to take over for Daddy.  But her plans for the future of Christmas is pretty ugly.  Kristen makes a deal if she can get one family to change and have the Christmas spirit again, Santa won’t give up the holiday.

This is a pretty decent little Christmas story (followed by a sequel called Twice Upon a Christmas which continues exactly where the first left off) has a a family that lost their mother (This seems to be a common thread in Christmas movies) and lost hope.  Dad, as usual, throws himself into his work and the kids chase away nanny after nanny.  But Kristen shows up and takes things into her hands.  What follows is a lot of trouble.   But in the end, Kristin has to make a decision that will change everything.   Will she be able to change the life of the Morgan’s forever, and foil her sisters plan to change Christmas into “Christmas Fools Day?”

This is such a heartwarming story and one I would definitely recommend.
