I WROTE THIS (?)

November 6th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I truly don’t understand how I’ve made it through any previous Christmases without this Hallmark movie. I discovered it last night, because November. It’s Romeo and Juliet, but the feuding families are NEIGHBORING CHRISTMAS TREE FARMS, aptly named, the Spruces, and the Pines. They had me at this alone, but then it faithfully continued to check every single one of my boxes:

  • A love interest girl with a perfect blowout and the most amazing collection of snow boots, who is studying horticulture in college
  • A love interest guy who wears nothing but cowboy boots and reminds his love interest and the audience in every scene that he’s from Texas
  • A character named Bear who’s a big guy who cuts down the trees and is constantly shamed for eating Pastries
  • A scene in which the love interests drink tea that’s made from pine needles steeped in water (?)
  • a random scene in which an Soldier, fresh off the plane home from Iraq, gets given a tiny Christmas tree, just because
  • Letters from a dead Mom
  • Letters from a dead mom discovered in a secret box of Christmas tree ornaments
  • Fake coldness
  • Dads wearing winter work Coats
  • thirsty background people tucked into scarves and hats
  • A single random Christmas tree in the middle of a baseball field
  • A flash forward at the end to a Christmas Day wedding
  • the traditional 900 clearly empty coffee cups and rolling suitcases
  • THE GENERAL AND OVERWHELMING FEELING THAT CHRISTMAS IS WHEN LOVE AND FAMILY AND FORGIVENESS HAPPEN
  • THE GENERAL AND OVERWHELMING FEELING THAT I WROTE THIS MOVIE (DID I WRITE IT?)
