Plot Synopsis

Scott and Sara VanCamp own a successful Christmas gift shop, Holly Daze, but they are having a hard time keeping the Christmas spirit alive in their own home with their children: Ally, 12, and Will, 8. Ally and Will are disappointed every year on Christmas, thinking their parents just don't have time for them anymore. Will, who loves the holidays, asks the Santa at the downtown Christmas Village to revive his parents' spirit. At the North Pole, Christine is an elf who wonders if there is more to life than making toys. Sensing her unhappiness, Santa calls Christine into his office, where he gives her a special assignment. She will go to the VanCamp family's home to bring the family together for Christmas. She must never reveal herself as an elf, and she must not get emotionally attached to anyone she meets. Christine quickly interviews to be the kids' new nanny, hoping to secretly transform their sad Christmas spirit into a loving family celebration. She thinks she has it all under control and finds herself falling in love with Sara's brother, Dave. But when Sara suspects her new nanny is interfering too much, she threatens to end Christine's stay. Confused, Christine must make decisions about returning to the North Pole or helping her new found family reclaim the holiday spirit. With Santa's help they all learn the true meaning of Christmas.
