My Santa is a Christmas romantic-comedy movie that was released in 2013. It tells the story of a single mother named Jen, played by Samaire Armstrong, who works as a waitress and struggles to make ends meet while raising her young daughter Hayley, played by Madison Pettis. Jen has a long-standing family tradition of writing a letter to Santa every year on Christmas Eve. However, this year is going to be different as she has an unusual idea after she sees a handsome man named Chris, played by Matthew Lawrence, who enters the diner where she works. Chris is charming, and Jen develops an instant crush on him.
As she leaves, Jen jokingly writes a letter to Santa, asking for a man like him to enter her life, replace her deceased husband, and become a father-like figure to her daughter. The next day, she is surprised to find a handsome stranger at her doorstep with a staggering resemblance to Chris. The stranger introduces himself as Kris Kringle Jr. and claims to be the son of Santa Claus.
Kris Junior, played by Jim O'Heir, informs Jen that he has been sent to fulfill her wish, and he is willing to stay with her and Hayley over the holiday season. Although Jen is skeptical about his claims, her daughter Hayley is thrilled to have Santa's son with them.
As Kris spends time with Jen and Hayley, a connection begins to grow between him and Jen. Kris reveals that he is here to help Jen connect with the Christmas spirit, which she lost after her husband passed away. He also teaches her some valuable life lessons.
However, Jen's happiness is short-lived when their landlady, Mrs. Claus, played by Julie Brown, discovers Kris's presence and informs him that his father, Santa Claus, needs him back as soon as possible to help save Christmas. Kris must leave, but he promises Jen and Hayley that he will return and be with them on Christmas Day.
The rest of the movie follows Kris's efforts to help Santa save Christmas and his return to Jen's doorstep as promised. The story focuses on the growing relationship between Jen and Kris Jr. and their efforts to come together despite the obstacles that are set in their way.
