In the Lifetime Christmas movie Santa’s Boots, the protagonist is Holly, a gorgeous blonde who goes home for the holidays and works at her family’s department store. Money is tight this year at the store, so Holly fills in as Santa’s Helper. While on the job, she falls for Santa — aka a handsome young guy named Nick (Noah Mills, boyfriend Robbie on 2 Broke Girls). The plot includes a fun twist on Cinderella – when Nick disappears right before Christmas, Holly’s left with one of his black boots.
