Christmas DVD Review and Giveaway: ‘Tis the Season for Love ~ from Hallmark Channel

Have you been enjoying all of the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel? We always seem to have one showing on TV throughout the day. They’ve really become a big part of our holiday tradition. Even my husband enjoys them, despite their romantic, feel-good themes! We recently saw one that is well worth the mention:

'Tis the Season for Love

Hanna Baker (Sarah Lancaster) left her small town of Kern to seek the stardom that everyone knew was her destiny. Now, ten years later, with none of her dreams coming to fruition and feeling like a failure, Hanna heads back to Kern to cheer herself up with a real, hometown, family Christmas. Once back, Hanna sees that life in Kern has moved on quite nicely without her, and she soon finds herself longing for her past. Everyone seems so content with their lives, and she begins to wonder if leaving was a mistake. Everything changes when a magical Santa gives her the wonderful opportunity to see what her life would’ve been had she never left to pursue her acting dreams. And she is shocked to learn that her alternate reality is nothing like she ever could’ve imagined, opening her eyes to new possibilities, new opportunities and a whole new love she never even considered.

Watch the trailer:


My thoughts:
Often, we are offered more than one path in life, and it’s not easy to decide which one to take. It would certainly be easier if we could see what’s ahead on each path. In the movie, Hanna isn’t given that opportunity either when she has to choose whether to stay in her small town and settle down or to take her chances in New York City to pursue an acting career. She chooses New York, but finds that she’s still not certain she’s made the right decision after ten years. They say you can take the girl out of her hometown but you can’t take the hometown out of the girl, and that’s what happens with Hanna. When she returns to Kern to re-consider her options, she finds that life in her small town feels better than she thought it would. She has a new appreciation for her family and friends, and discovers that smaller ambitions – like directing the children’s play – can make a larger impact on people’s lives. And, of course, it helps that a certain small-town boy is also convinced that Hanna belongs in Kern. We know how the story ends, of course, but it still makes the journey worthwhile as this movie explores themes that are universal and relatable.

I hope you’ll catch the next showing of 'Tis the Season for Love on the Hallmark Channel or purchase the DVD. When you buy the DVD at Walmart, you get a special bonus: You can instantly download an eCopy and get a Vudu code to give as a gift!
