Who says you can only start to watch holiday movies 25 days before Christmas?!?! I started back in November.
I love that Holiday movies always leave you with a feel good feeling. And that after watching them the magic of Christmas suddenly seems to be there.
Recently I was able to review A Christmas Ornament from the Hallmark Channel. I sure just like everyone else Hallmark Channel has some of my favorite Christmas movies! Each one if magical, filled with holiday spirit and is always family friendly.
Newly widowed Kathy (Kellie Martin) plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband. The only Christmas tradition she will observe is baking cookies for her friends, a passion since she was a child. When Kathy meets handsome Christmas tree shop owner Tim (Cameron Mathison), their undeniable chemistry - along with an ornament Tim gives her that symbolizes hope - helps Kathy open up to the joys of the season again. With the support of her best friend Jenna (Jewel Staite), and the budding relationship with Tim, Kathy begins to embrace the hopeful message of the ornament. Although Kathy wants to take a chance on Tim, she struggles to find the balance between preserving the memory of her husband and moving on with her own future. Is the Christmas ornament a sign that she can have a hopeful future?

The Christmas Ornament is a beautiful story that touches on faith, support and finding happiness. Kathy struggles with the thought of celebrating the holidays without her passed away husband. I love the small town feel (Small town girl myself) of everyone wanting to help her out and worrying about her well being. I loved watching her growing relationship with Tim and seeing Cathy find happiness again with not only, but also from the support everyone showed her.
As with all Hallmark Christmas Movies The Christmas Ornament is sure to leave you feeling the Christmas spirit :)
