About the movie

Centered around a hard-working workaholic named Meredith, Charming Christmas follows the tenacious businesswoman as she takes over the family department store, a sophisticated, upscale store that has been in her family for 75 years. Caring mostly nothing about Christmas, Meredith busies herself in increasing the size of the current store while she tries to convince her parents to allow her to expand the business by franchising it. Reluctantly, her mother agrees to consider the idea, but Meredith must agree to wearing a beautiful Ms. Santa Claus dress that was first worn by her mom decades earlier. The magical dress sparked a romance between the mother and Meredith’s father who became quite smitten upon seeing her in it. When Meredith agrees, she meets the handsome Nick, a hunky gentleman who prides himself on being the best Santa around town. His loving and warm nature makes him a local favorite with the children around town. But will the old dress incite a romantic connection a second time between Nick and Meredith? And will Nick convince her to slow down enough to enjoy the magic of Christmas?
