Well, Lifetime has you covered with some of the best Christmas movies to watch this season and one among them is 'People Presents: Once Upon a Main Street'.

The film's story deals with Amelia and Vic who need to fill in the shoes of Elder Dubois in order to make their dream of owning a year-round Christmas shop come true. However, their attempt at winning Elder's space brings them closer in an unexpected way, when they discover the key to happiness. If you're planning on watching 'People Presents: Once Upon a Main Street', here's everything you need to know about the Vanessa Lachey and Ryan McPartlin starrer. 

Release date 

'People Presents: Once Upon a Main Street' will premiere on November 29 on Lifetime at 8 pm ET. 

Plot

The official synopsis of the movie reads, "Amelia Lewis (Vanessa Lachey) is super excited when she buys an available storefront, planning to open a year-round Christmas shop. But her celebration comes to a screeching halt when she discovers that Vic Manning (Ryan McPartlin) has also bid on the property. Amelia and Vic have the same idea, get to the seller—Elder Dubois (Patrick Duffy) in the next town—and convince him to sell his space to them. Despite the holidays, Elder is down in the dumps. It’s the first Christmas without his wife, and he’s in no mood to chair the decoration committee for the “Battle of the Main Street” yearly holiday competition with the neighboring town."

"Hoping to win favor with Elder, Amelia and Vic volunteer to take over his duties. After continually bickering and trying to one-up each other, the two combatants learn to work together and even get the merchants on Main Street to put aside their differences for the greater good. Everyone, including Amelia and Vic, realizes that compromise is the key that leads to a happy—and romantic—ending," it reads further.
