24. Dear Santa
Dear Santa tells the story of Crystal, a wealthy party girl who, out of nowhere, finds a little girl’s letter to Santa Claus. When she reads it, she sees that the little girl has asked for a new mom for her and a new wife for her father. Crystal decides to find the girl and her father, Derek, and see what happens.
But it’s not just the letter that’s making Crystal want to change and settle down on her partying and spending. She also drained her parents’ bank account and they gave her an ultimatum. She has until Christmas to clean up her act and if she doesn’t, all her credit cards will be immediately canceled.
Through the letter, she figures out the girl’s father is the owner of a local soup kitchen. So that’s where Crystal goes despite never setting foot even near one in her life. But when Derek sees her wandering around, he pulls her in and she begins volunteering to get closer to him.
As she gets closer, she realizes Derek isn’t single. He has a girlfriend named Jillian and she wants Crystal as far from Derek as possible. But Crystal doesn’t give up. She’s determined to keep Derek and his daughter in her life if for no other reason than that they make her a better person.
Unfortunately, as often happens with these types of films where the main character doesn’t tell the truth in the beginning, Derek finds out how Crystal found him and he’s pissed. How will she get back into his good graces? You’ll have to watch to find out.
