Christmas with a Capital C
Monday December 24 | 10:00am
Christmas has always been a time of love and tradition in small town Trapper Falls; hometown of Mayor Dan Reed (Ted McGinley). With his brother Greg (Brad Stine), they drape the town in Christmas cheer concentrating on the nativity scene. When Dan's high school rival Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin) returns home after 20 years, he takes offense to seeing the town's Nativity scene in violation of separation of church and state. Mitch wants the Nativity scene removed and the word Christmas switched to Happy Holidays. Dan's wife Kristen (Nancy Stafford) and their daughter show the true meaning of Christmas by launching a "Christmas with a Capital C" campaign as an effort to keep the town together. Trapper Falls learns the lesson that with the arrival of Christmas, good will was to be given to all; even those whose heart seem closed to Him.

A Christmas Snow
Tuesday December 25 | 2:00pm
Kathleen (Catherine Mary Stewart) has carried around the unwanted memory of her father abandoning her and her mother on Christmas Eve. For the past 30 years, she has blamed her mother for that night and refuses to celebrate Christmas in any fashion. Although she has tried to forget her past, it has not forgotten her, and in the days leading up to Christmas she finds herself stuck in her own home with two strangers, Sam (Muse Watson), a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night and Lucy (Cameron ten Napel), the daughter of her soon to be fiancé (Anthony Tyler Quinn).
As the storm brings her face to face with the hurts of her past, she will have to choose one path; letting go and grabbing hold of a life changing forgiveness or continuing to carry her pain and bitterness with her.

It’s Christmastime, and all Dylan Taylor wants is an XR-7 limited edition speedster. However, his hopes are zapped when he discovers its extravagant price tag would overload the family budget. That is, until he hears that the two-wheeled titanium turbo bike is the grand prize of Odyssey’s Christmas yard decorating contest! But Dylan’s scheming neighbor, Doug, has other plans. And when he gets a glimpse of Doug’s snow-sculpted, ten-foot tall twin T-Rexes towing a skiing Elvis amid a cluster of cut-out palm trees, Dylan switches his design from a humble manger scene to a super-charged, mega-watt wonderland. What follows is a powerful reminder that grounds them all in the true meaning of Christmas.
