Do you believe in Ghosts? If not you will want too after watching this movie.
The Spirit of Christmas has a lil bit of everything -- romance, mystery, and ghosts. The setting is gorgeous and actually is one of the most intriguing elements of the story. Hollygrove Inn is a gorgeous, old southern plantation-esk style bed and breakfast. Kate is a go-get-em, big city attorney that's determined to secure her big promotion. Oliver (Kate's boss) is headed to the Bahamas on vaca ...he assigns the Foresthye Estate to Kate making it her responsibility to get the Inn appraised and sold by years end -- a mere three weeks. As executor Late heads to Hollygrove to meet the third appraiser hired to look Hollygrove over. She arrives to find him sprinting to his car. She meets the caretaker, a kindly, if a bit odd man named Walter-- who is on his way out-- as the Inn closes from the 13th thru thr 25th. This seems quite strange to Kate. The holidays should be the Inn's busiest time. But Walter insists that it is "tradition." Kate's first night in the Inn she meets "Daniel," he is the ghost who haunts Hollygrove. Murdered 95 years ago on Christmas Eve, His photo and an article from the newspaper about his disappearance are displayed in the entryway.
A curse, a blessing, or maybe a miracle Kate tries to help Daniel solve the riddle that has trapped him. Along the way the tough, no nonsense lawyer falls in love with Daniel. Knowing she may only have him present in her life a mere twelve days a year is hard to fathom. However, twelve is better than none. Daniel too begins to soften his harsh, I want to be alone attitude and reveals information that helps put the pieces of what happened nearly a century ago together.
A gorgeous setting, an intriguing murder mystery, love, family ties, betrayal, and forgiveness. I love this movie I just wish it was longer. I didn't want it to end. If you love the sweet. I mean sappy sweet Christmas movies you will love this one. Even my eight-year-old granddaughter liked it. She loves fairy tales and happily ever afters. . .if you do too you will like this one.
