About Homegrown Christmas
After stepping down as CEO of her dream job, Maddie (Lori Loughlin) heads home for the holidays to gain perspective. She finds herself running into her old high school sweetheart Carter (Victor Webster), and tensions quickly arise. When forced to put together a Christmas dance for the local high school, Carter and Maddie find themselves putting their differences aside and just might rediscover what made them fall in love all those years ago.
What the Holidays Means To Me
The holidays in my family growing up were very special because it meant it was a busy time of the year. But because it was busy it also meant we were going to be spending more time together as a family. Growing up in Northern Missouri my grandparents owned and operated Brummitt’s Christmas Tree Farm just outside of Trenton, Missouri in a place we fondly call Hickory. The tree farm was open every weekend starting the Friday after Thanksgiving and each weekend we would spend hours running up and down the fields of evergreens. While we were there to “work” we had lots of fun and working the tree farm was just a holiday tradition. Because customers were able to cut and choose their own Christmas trees there were lots of us on hand to assist the customers.
While enjoying downtime we drank lots of hot chocolate, warmed ourselves by the fire between customers and enjoy many sleigh rides on the horse-drawn sleigh with my Papa at the reins. They were some of the best days of the year and with each year that passed, we all looked forward to the holidays each year. When our daughter Elizabeth was younger she was even able to take part in the tradition of picking our very own Christmas Tree Thanksgiving Day. Then we would each go home and decorate for the holidays as a family after we decorated Nana and Papa’s tree at their home. It is one of my all-time favorite memories and while the tree farm is no longer it is still something that we chat about each and every holiday season.
With each passing year, I learn just how important holiday traditions are and one of my favorite “newer” holiday traditions include watching Hallmark Channel’s Christmas programming. Each year their line up never ceases to amaze me and this year they have 22 new original movies premiering throughout #CountdowntoChristmas.
