Synopsis (via Lifetime)

An event planner mistakenly throws out her grandmother’s Christmas ornaments, and the person who finds the ornaments leads her on a scavenger hunt to retrieve them, helping her to find the magic of Christmas again along the way.

Thoughts

Whitney is in town to visit her grandma. Her grandma has been trying to match her up with the neighbor, Brian. Whitney’s grandma loves her and tells her about every five seconds, she is also very concerned about how committed Whitney is to work. Over dinner they plan their Christmas agenda. 

Whitney and her grandma go through Christmas decorations and relive family memories, while drinking wine. Her grandma gives her the family Christmas ornaments.

The next morning, Whitney is cleaning out some old boxes in her room and accidently throws them out. She gets a note in the mail from a stranger who sends Whitney on a scavenger hunt. Brian agrees to help Whitney look for them.

The first clue takes then to a production of The Nutcracker. They follow clues together, while keeping the whole things a secret from her grandma. They are sent all around town and Whitney is a little stressed because she is also planning an event in downtown Chicago for a friend of her Grandma. She is also responsible for decorating the store window. 

More people around town are giving Whitney clues for the ornaments. She is slowly getting them back and having fun along the way. It turns out that Grandma was behind this whole thing and she is trying to get Brian and Whitney to spend more time together. Brian discovers this and is upset that she is manipulating them. He comes around and makes Whitney a decoration box. 

Whitney is trying to complete all the things she committed to while she is on vacation but still making time for Brian. While over at her house, Whitney finds a note from Grandma at his house. She is upset that her grandma is manipulating them. She yells at Brian and then talks to her grandma more reasonably. She realizes that she doesn’t see a good thing even when it is right in front of her… maybe like Brian?

The department store window is finished and reflects the past of the store, everyone loves it and then goes to the party. (Which we don’t see and doesn’t matter.

Brian and Whitney make up. Whitney decides to stay in town and they kiss, while grandma take a picture. This movie is pretty weird, you guys!
