“One of my favorite Christmas memories is something that I still do today. I have two siblings and growing up, the three of us would look forward to every Christmas Eve because we received an early gift from my dad where he gave us PJs to wake up in for Christmas morning. So, now that I have children, I make it a big deal and I buy them Christmas PJs and they get so excited to see which PJs we picked out for them. This year they are really looking forward to it. This tradition is something I hope that they [my kids] will pass on to their kids when they get older.”

A Royal Winter
“While on a last-minute European holiday, a young woman finds herself in the middle of a real-life fairy tale when a chance meeting with a handsome local leads to something more. However, things get complicated when she learns that the ‘local’ is actually a prince who is about to be crowned King, and whose mother is dead-set against her royal son’s romance with the tourist.” courtesy of hallmarkchannel.com.
