Plot of Candy Cane Christmas
This new holiday movie will center around Phoebe Saunders. Christmas-loving Pheebs has grown up adoring the “Candy Cane Lane” tradition in her childhood neighborhood.
The tradition involved transforming the neighborhood street into a festive winter wonderland that would look straight out of the North Pole. But Phoebe’s holiday spirit is dampened when the neighborhood decides to skip the tradition this year.
Phoebe tries to revive her enthusiasm by looking for other Christmas traditions. And her search leads her to Eric Kelton.
Her budding romance with Eric leads Phoebe to realize that it’s not the traditions that make Christmas fun, but rather the people you spend them with.
