Good Morning Christmas! Plot Summary Two quarreling television hosts feign civility during an assignment to report on a small town's Christmas celebrations, but something genuine starts to develop.

The Christmas Contest Plot Summary Lara and Ben are exes who compete in a Christmas contest to win money for the charity of their choosing.  The city watches them battle to choose which is more important--victory or love.
