After Jessie Patterson (Arielle Kebbel) calls off her third engagement - at the altar! - she swears off serious relationships until she finds the one. That is, until charming but chronically single Aiden MacTiernan (Andrew Walker) comes along. Unbeknownst to Jessie, Aiden has bet his friends that he can convince a woman to marry him by Christmas - which is only four weeks away - and Jessie is the target of his bet. As Aiden attempts to court Jessie by first hiring her to decorate his apartment, Jessie looks to her sister, roommate and interior design company partner, Vivian (Kimberly Sustad) as her closest confidant. Vivian advises her to keep it professional with Aiden. To complicate matters, Jessie is doggedly pursued by her most recent ex-fiancé, Mike (Sage Brocklebank), who still wants to marry her. Despite all this, Aiden manages to spend time with Jessie, win over her parents, and even convince her that he could be the one. Aiden surprises himself by falling for Jessie, too, leaving him to decide if he should call off the bet and go all out to truly pursue her.

While Sara and Scott run their booming holiday store, Will and Ally are often left unsupervised.

With help from the kids Dave (John Brotherton), Christine thinks she has it all under control and might even be falling in love.

This annual holiday event dates back to 1928.  In the beginning, the Hollywood Christmas Parade was called the Santa Claus Lane Parade and inspired crooner Gene Autry to co-write the tune Here Comes Santa Claus. (…right down Santa Claus Lane).  Since renamed, the grandeur of the mega-parade hasn
t changed one bit from the beginning.  More than a million people annually line up through Hollywood to catch a look at the dazzling procession of stars, marching bands, open-air antique cars, live cartoon characters, equestrian groups, and more.  The great thing about this parade is that you never really know who is going to show up.  Over the years, it has included everyone from Bing Crosby and Bob Hope to Jimmy Stewart, Sammy Davis Jr., Zsa Zsa Gabor, Betty White, Will Smith, Dick Van Dyke, Natalie Wood, and even Kathy Griffin.  So pull up a comfy chair and share in the magic of a dazzling Tinseltown tradition with this years Grand Marshall, Tony Award® and Emmy Award®-Winning Actor, Joe Mantegna.
