One of the New Hallmark Christmas Movies Seriously Wowed Me

“Christmas With the Darlings” broke so many molds that I’m still surprised.

The same-sex relationship

The uncharacteristic characterization of the male lead

The *healthy* love dynamic

The protagonist throwing a feminist barb

The message about childhood gender socialization

The casting choices

The eco-friendly angle

Love, sex, dreams, soul, adventure, healing, feeling. I kinda experience life as magical.
