The Santa Box
For 12-year-old Kallie Watts, Christmas is anything but merry. For the last five years, the tinsel-strewn holiday has spelled disaster for her family, so when an apartment fire leaves Kallie and her widowed mother homeless just in time for the holidays, it comes as no surprise. There’s only one logical conclusion: Kallie is cursed by Christmas.
When her mother finds a new job in a small California town, Kallie steps out of the moving van and into her worst nightmare: a real-life version of “Whoville,” overflowing with holiday decorations and brimming with Christmas cheer. Forced to navigate the complicated ins and outs of her jolly new surroundings, Kallie is shaken out of her gloom one day when she discovers an ornately carved wooden Santa box on the porch, addressed to her. The moment she lifts the lid, Kallie’s life is changed forever as she rediscovers the true magic and meaning of Christmas…
A rainy evening was the perfect chance to put on my Christmas PJs, cuddle up with my blanket, and my daughters, and watch The Santa Box. This was the first Christmas movie we have watched this year, and it was just wonderful. I really liked that this movie was something we could all enjoy together. The story was uplifting and really placed the true meaning of Christmas front and center: caring for others. The actresses and actors were wonderful and really brought the story to life. The Santa Box is a film that will be one we view each Christmas. The magic of the story and the lesson that we can all put others before ourselves came together to create the perfect movie for us.
