Newly widowed Kathy plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband.

With the support of her best friend Jenna, and the budding relationship with Tim, Kathy begins to embrace the hopeful message of the ornament. Although Kathy wants to take a chance on Tim, she struggles to find the balance between preserving the memory of her husband and moving on with her own future.

Did You Know?


The song heard playing in the gift shop at the tree lot has generated a lot of interest. The title is "Isn't Christmas Time a Wonderful Thing", by Joel Evans featuring Carla Helmbrecht. The song is not available on cd, but can be purchased on mp3. Be sure you are purchasing the version featuring Carla Helmbrecht. See more »


Tim tells Kathy that he was first attracted to her when they first met, when he saw her place upright a small angel ornament on a table in his gift shop so that it would not fall off the table. When Kathy straightened the ornament, Tim was not in the gift shop, and based on the setup of the store there is no way he could have seen her do it through the window of the store even if he was just outside.

A Nice Film
6 August 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews


Put "The Christmas Ornament" on your must watch list! In this film a recently young widowed is facing her first Christmas without her husband. Cameron Mathison plays a man who owns a Christmas Tree lot and the two of course fall in love.

What is believable about this film is that is shows no matter how old you are you never lose the nervousness you have when you "Like someone" and hope they like you. What was perfect about this was the two leads do not start off as adversary's. I love the fact that each one is a "Little Gun Shy" and is afraid of being hurt.

Most adults over 30 will "fully understand" and can relate to both of these people. My favorite moment in the film happens when they turn on the Snow Machine on the Christmas Tree lot. Try not to smile when you hear the man say "I Love Christmas". It is a magical moment
