Don Cassidy is an award-winning Christmas decorating enthusiast living in hot, sunny Florida. When he and his family move to Maine, Don dreams of finally seeing his holiday display amidst the falling snow for the first time. Unfortunately, he has moved across the street from local busybody Muriel Michaud, a retired teacher who loves to spy on the comings and goings of the folks in their fast-changing neighborhood.
When Don begins to create an elaborate Christmas display in September, it immediately becomes a focus for all of Muriel’s pent-up frustrations, and she starts a campaign to shut the display down, dragging her reluctant husband into the fray with her. Will Muriel and Don reach a compromise? And, most
importantly, will their battle further divide the community, or will the residents band together to find friendship and, perhaps, love, in the midst of neighborly dysfunction?
The House on Christmas Street dazzles us with the lights and spectacle of Christmastime – while also reminding us that the holiday season is not just about what we see with our eyes, but, more importantly, what we see with our hearts.
