Christmas Joy is a heartwarming Christmas movie that tells the story of a woman named Joy Holbrook who returns to her hometown of Crystal Falls after her aunt's death to help her family run her aunt's toy store during the holiday season. Joy is a successful market researcher in Washington, D.C. who has put her personal life on hold to focus on her career. She is not thrilled at the idea of leaving her fast-paced lifestyle to go back to her small town but she sees it as an opportunity to help her family and reconnect with her roots.

Upon her arrival in Crystal Falls, Joy immediately gets to work helping her family with the toy store. She meets Ben Andrews, a local contractor who is hired by Joy's family to renovate the store. Initially, Joy and Ben have a bit of a rocky start as they clash over the renovations. However, as they spend more time together, they begin to develop feelings for each other.

Matt Long, who plays Ben, is charming and lovable, making the chemistry between him and Panabaker palpable. Lucia Walters, who plays Joy's mother, is a standout performer as well, delivering a heartfelt performance that complements the movie's themes of family and tradition.
