I was watching the Hallmark Channel and found that most every Christmas movie had some serious clichés in common. I thought to myself that I could do just as well or, at the very least come up with a decent parody of the genre. So, I wrote a parody of a Christmas story.
In it, we find Holly Clause, a Big City executive being called back to her small hometown because of the death of her mother. Soon, she is pairing off against the town's grinch, one O. M. Potter. The sparks and insanity begin to fly as Holy comes up with a scheme to win back Christmas from the old miser.
