Meredith Rossman is the uptight heiress of Rossman's Department store. She has made the business her entire life, not leaving any time for Christmas or romance, much to the chagrin of her parents. But when she is roped into donning the store's antique Mrs. Claus outfit to play Mrs. Claus at Rossman's famous Santaville, her life takes some unexpected turns. Through the help of the suit and the charming store Santa, Nick, Meredith rekindles her love of Christmas, the store, their employees and possibly even begins a new love with Nick. He is mysterious, great with children and always there when you need him. Just like the real Santa....wait...could he be? One thing is certain: from the moment Meredith put on the magical Mrs. Claus dress, her life would never be the same!

Just when they need a Santa Claus, Nick (David Sutcliffe) appears on the scene. The parents hire him without question or without the advice of Meredith – which is incredibly irksome to her. He plays the role so well that Meredith begins to question if Nick is, well maybe, St. Nick himself. Nick is a sweet and charming individual who is helpful to all and especially great with children. While working with Nick, Meredith begins to alter not only the way she interacts with others but also how she thinks and feels about the holiday and life in general.
The chemistry between these two actors is wonderful. The tough as nails Meredith and the charming (funny how that word keeps getting repeated) Nick seem to be exactly what the other is missing. They spark off one another and when they speak, it seems as if it were in real life and not merely lines in a movie. This is the type of relationship that allows me to step into the moment of watching as if it were someone I know and care about.
Along with the main story line, there are two other women who share the duties of Mrs. Claus. The dress that they share (which is interesting because they don't share what I call an exact body style), just be a tad magical, too. At the very least, it twinkles as if it were, so maybe we are supposed to wonder about that, too. Each of these women, Jesse (Ashley Leggat) and Olivia (Vanessa Matsui) need and find the magic that they are looking for.
We always look to Hallmark for great new Christmas movies each year. This one is one that we will happily watch each year as the calendar winds down towards Christmas Day.
This was entertaining without being over-the-top. The
two-leads---and the supporting cast---drew you into the
story-line. Characters that you CARED about. You could
spend a lot of time looking for a bit of holiday cheer,
and do worse than this.

We watch Hallmark Holiday stories year-round at this house. Watching “Charming Christmas” is like getting one of Nick’s charms in your Christmas stocking, a shiny dangle of delight.
