SNOWED IN FOR CHRISTMAS is a delightful holiday romance on UPtv about an Au Pair girl named Kaley. Because of Christmas, Kaley has one more night with the two Cunningham girls before she goes home to spend Christmas with her own family. However, when a snowstorm cancels the Cunningham parents’ flight back, it’s up to Kaley to sacrifice her time to take care of the girls. Mr. Cunningham had noted that his brother, Ethan, is coming to spend Christmas at their house, but he wasn’t scheduled to arrive until Kaley leaves. Will Ethan’s unexpected, surprise early arrival hurt or help Kaley’s holiday spirit? Also, will Kaley and Ethan make an unexpectedly good team, or are Kaley’s Christmas plans ruined?
SNOWED IN FOR CHRISTMAS offers a lovable cast of characters and heartfelt message about sacrifice, an emphasis on family before career, serving others, and the importance of forgiveness. Aside from the mention of a scandal and Christmas magic taking the place of Jesus, SNOWED IN FOR CHRISTMAS has very little objectionable content. So, MOVIEGUIDE® only advises some light discernment for younger children.

SNOWED IN FOR CHRISTMAS is a delightful holiday romance movie from UPtv about an Au Pair named Kaley who has to work a few extra days after a snowstorm cancels flights.
Kaley is a hardworking Au Pair and beloved by her host family, the Cunninghams. Entering the holiday season, Kaley is wondering if a job opportunity in social media marketing would be too big of a step. She also doesn’t want to leave the Cunningham family and the two girls she babysits.
Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham have one last Christmas party to attend, but Kaley can fly home to spend Christmas with her parents after they return. Mr. Cunningham notes that his brother is coming to spend Christmas at their house, but he’s not scheduled to arrive until Kaley leaves.
As Kaley gears up for one last night with the girls, Mr. Cunningham’s brother, Ethan, knocks at their door. Although Kaley is reluctant to let Ethan in the house, his two nieces recognize him. Kaley convinces herself it will be just one night, and then she doesn’t need to worry.
In the morning, however, she wakes up to Ethan burning breakfast and realizes that he may make things harder for her and the girls. For most of the day, Ethan is occupied by work. However, in the evening, Kaley, Ethan and the girls see that a snowstorm has canceled Mr. and Mrs. Cuningham’s flight home.
Kaley knows she can’t leave Ethan alone to take care of the girls, so she decides to stay until their parents return. The two reluctantly pair up to take care of the girls. Will Kaley and Ethan make an unexpectedly good team, or are Kaley’s Christmas plans doomed?
