Below is the synopsis of "The Holiday Calendar," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A struggling but talented photographer inherits an antique holiday advent calendar, the contents of which seem to predict the future. Will this magical calendar lead her to love this holiday season?

"The Holiday Calendar" is a cute romantic Christmas movie with a cast of color, and a magical storyline. Although Kat Graham isn't a rom-com kind of girl, she explained why she took a chance on this role. According to Bustle:

For one, Graham strongly relates to Abby having parents of different races. "I have never seen a holiday movie centered around a biracial family where the mother is white and the dad is black which is exactly what I had," she says, explaining that her mother is of Russian-Polish descent and her father is West African. "It's never been done before and I think with everything that's happening in the world right now, especially in America, it's really, really important to show love and family and community and relationships in that way."

Below is the synopsis of "The Christmas Chronicles," per Rotten Tomatoes.

THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES, a holiday adventure from producer Chris Columbus ("Home Alone", "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone") and director Clay Kaytis ("The Angry Birds Movie"), tells the story of sister and brother, Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis), whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about. After staking out Santa's arrival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly derail Christmas. As their wild night unfolds, Kate and Teddy work together with Santa - as you've never seen him before - and his loyal Elves to save Christmas before it's too late.

"The Christmas Chronicles" holds a fresh rating of 66 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, while also starring movie legend Kurt Russell as Santa. How much more can you for in a fun adventure? Gary Goldstein wrote for The Los Angeles Times about Russell's magical performance:

Russell, he of the shaggy mane and those twinkly, crinkly eyes, digs into the classic role with a sleighful of energy, humor and gusto, deftly making the character his own with guidance from Matt Lieberman's inventive, myth-bending script.
