Story: In You Can’t Fight Christmas the Chestertown Hotel is being all decked out for Christmas by Leslie Major, who is the designer behind the Christmas magic. While decorating the hotel, Leslie finds out about the plans that Edmund James, nephew of the hotel owner, and his uptight business partner and love interest Millicent, have to turn the old hotel into an upscale resort once Edmund inherits the hotel from his uncle. Scheming Millicent also has plans for Edmund that involve a wedding ring but Edmund may not be ready to take their partnership to the next level.
Leslie enlists her merry team of helpers to help save the hotel and in the process, shares more than a little Christmas spirit with Edmund, who hasn’t celebrated Christmas since his parents divorced around Christmastime when he was a teen. Actress Marla Gibbs makes a special appearance in this holiday romance as one of the many hotel patrons who return to the homey Chesterton every Christmas season. Source: TV One.
