So I've been absent for a while because, you know, life. But I have 7 hours by myself time today, and this movie has been sitting in my DVR since December 10.

Amazingly enough, these Christmas movies don't just jump out of screenwriters' heads fully formed. Sometimes they are based on books, like today's installment, Miss Christmas, starring some blonde girl and Marc Blucas, forever stamped in my brain as Riley from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
