Best Christmas movies set in each state

HOME ALONE - Eight year old Kevin MacAllister (Macaulay Culkin) gets lost in the shuffle as his large, upper-middle class suburban family rushes to make a plane that will ferry them off to their Christmas vacation in France; Kevin, having been banished to an attic room as punishment, is subsequently forgotten. At first this is a dream come true, as for the first time in his young life he has no one to answer to but himself, and he takes full advantage of his newfound freedom, eating junk food and watching late-night horror flicks. But when the bumbling Wet Bandits Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) target his house for a robbery, Kevin must step up to defend his home; he sets a maze of booby traps so elaborate that only an eight year old imagination could concoct them.

Maine: Let It Snow

Release Year: 2013

Directed By: Harvey Frost

Starring: Candace Cameron Bure, Jesse Hutch, Alan Thicke, Gabrielle Rose, Dan Willmott, Alison Thornton, Samantha Ferris, Connor Christopher Levins, John Innes, Meredith McGeachie, Emma Tremblay, Matthew Kevin Anderson

Before Hallmark Christmas movies were the annual pop culture talking point they are today, Candace Cameron Bure was the real star of the seasonal event. It’s no wonder that she’s still so involved with the networks rollout and starring in a number of movies each year. Back in 2013, Bure took a trip to Maine in Let It Snow as Grinch-like executive Stephanie Beck, who checks out the Snow Valley Lodge, her company’s new property. But as she gives in to the lodge’s charms, including the handsome Brady (Jesse Hutch), Stephanie’s heart grows a few sizes bigger.

Like most Hallmark Christmas movies, Let It Snow centers on a character conflicted between her professional duties and newfound personal attachments. No matter how many times this story plays out in TV movies, there will always be audiences for the escapist, picturesque winter fairy tales. For two hours, nothing else matters but Candace Cameron Bure unlearning bitterness toward the holidays and opening herself to love and small towns. Grab your coziest blank, pour a glass of whatever you like, travel to Maine and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
