Your favorite characters return in this hilarious sequel to the smash hit Miracle on Christmas Lake! This time around and with a brand new baby in tow, Colin and Tess have more than a theater to save; their beloved town of Christmas Lake is under threat of annexation. After saving the theater from financial ruin last year, Colin and Tess have been busy settling into Christmas Lake and adjusting to their new role as parents. Reptile enthusiast Martha Knutson has been dating her crush Neil Gunderson for a year and is eagerly waiting for him to pop the question. Neil, busy with his piano tuning career, is oblivious to Martha's yearning, leaving Gunther to swoop in and sweep Martha off her feet. A ridiculous and zany holiday hit that will charm the pants off even the Scrooge-iest Scrooge!
