A New Christmas Carol

Every-Day-is-Christmas-Movie-on-Lifetime

Every Day Is Christmas

This new TV movie is inspired by the Charles Dickens classic,  A Christmas Carol.

A shrewd money manager Alexis Taylor (Toni Braxton) gets the holiday visit of a lifetime. A self-proclaimed workaholic who “humbugs” love, Alexis ends up embracing the spirit of Christmas when her past, present, and future collide, forcing her to risk the one thing money can’t buy: her heart.

Her parents act as the ghosts of the three time periods, and her love for them makes her miss them even more when they disappear again, as they do each time she seemingly reacts badly to whatever lessons they are trying to teach her.

Along the way, she gets to revisit some painful memories (of the day her parents died 20 years before), see how the other half lives (especially her Chief Operating Officer, effectively her work ‘husband’), and preview her lonely illness later in life. It’s enough to change anyone’s way of life.

A Couple of Quotes

When Alexis initially twigs onto what her mother’s reason for being there is: “Are you Christmas Caroling me?”

Upon meeting her COO’s granddaughter for the ‘first’ time, the child says, “Where’s your mother?” (meaning that she’d seen them both the night before when they were ghosts), to which Alexis replies, “Right here,” indicating her heart.

Love Wins in the End

He’d been right there the whole 20 years, and she hadn’t noticed. Her driver, Justin. And for several of those years he’d been trying to get her to visit his beautifully lit Christmas house, but until this Christmas, she had never wanted to see inside it.

That’s what happens when the truth is hidden from our eyes, by our own unwillingness to really see it for what it is.

Love is all around.

Well done, Toni Braxton, for helping us to see it, too.
