Can you feel it? That little touch of crispness in the air and the undercurrent of excitement in the stores? The holidays are right around the corner and you know what that means. Decoration, baking, and family? Uh….no. It’s time to tuck into snuggly pajamas, grab a steaming cup of cocoa and curl up on the couch with your favorite holiday movies!
Every year, Hallmark Channel outdoes itself on the family movie front and this year is no different. With TWENTY-ONE new Christmas features premiering on the network’s “Countdown to Christmas” this season, there is plenty of sweet, family friendly goodness to go around.
One of these movies in particular has piqued my interest. It’s called Enchanted Christmas. Here’s the description of the movie:
Young widow, Laura Trudeau (played by Alexa PenaVega) was a remarkable dancer. Now working as a project manager in LA, she is tasked to renovate a rundown hotel lodge, in her hometown of Rosemort, Utah and have it ready by Christmas Eve. She is stunned to run into her former love and dance partner Ricardo Archuleta, (Carlos PenaVega) who she discovers is in rehearsals for The Christmas Eve shows grand finale, with his new dance partner Taylor (Chelsie Hightower, “Dancing with the Stars”). When Taylor has an audition abroad, Laura once again finds herself back in Ricardo’s arms. Feelings are rekindled, and with both the hotel opening and the show in jeopardy, Laura has to make somee difficult decisions, both personally and professionally.
You can check out the trailer here.
Doesn’t that look great? Who doesn’t love ballroom dancing? And then you throw in Christmas? Seriously, this movie looks like a lot of fun.
If you thought you recognized the main character, Laura, you probably did. Alexa PenaVega skyrocketed to fame in the Spy Kids series of movis. Now she’s all grown up and co-starring with her husband, Carlos PenaVega. They even contributed their musical talents by recording one of the songs for the movie. Is there anything they can’t do?
Enchanted Christmas airs on November 12th on Hallmark Channel at 8:00 pm/7:00 central. Don’t miss it!
