In "Snow Bride", a tabloid reporter is one gossip scoop away from a big promotion when she finds that the influential political family she's been pursing is nothing like what she imagined. Greta finds herself in the middle of what could be her best story yet when she encounters Ben, the eldest son of a famous political family, in the mountain retreat, and winds up pretending to be his girlfriend over Christmas so he can save face with his family. However, she soon discovers that the family is more down-to-earth than she ever thought. As she grows more attracted to Ben, she becomes increasingly guilt-ridden about her game of subterfuge and soon must decide how far she will go for the sake of a story. Stars Patricia Richardson, Katrina Law, and Jordan Belfi.

Antique shop owner Alice is nervous to meet her future in-laws for the first time at Christmas in "A Very Merry Mix-Up", especially since she is arriving ahead of her new fianc�, Will Mitchum. As luck would have it, a mix up at the airport, amidst her lost baggage and damaged phone, lands her at the wrong home! However, this "wrong" family is just her sort of people and she quickly forms a bond with them, especially with the handsome son, Matt. When the mistake is discovered, she heads to the "right" house, but soon realizes she would rather be spending Christmas with the "wrong" family. As Christmas approaches, Alice must decide if her "Merry Mix-Up" is actually her destiny. Stars Alicia Witt and Mark Wiebe.
