‘The Christmas Yule Blog’ is a romantic comedy film that is about rediscovering one’s faith in the spirit of Christmas through a journey that may lead to true love as well as precious new experiences. The Lifetime made-for-TV movie follows Caroline Williams, an up and coming travel blogger, as she travels to the quaint little town of Carte De Amor, New Mexico. Her assignment is to cover the town’s 100-year-old Christmas parade. Over the years, Caroline has become disenchanted with all things Christmas, but she takes on the project, albeit reluctantly.
When she arrives in New Mexico, she meets Oscar Ortiz, a high school music teacher who shows her a new side of Christmas, with traditions unheard of and immerses herself in brand new festive experiences. Soon, Caroline finds her Christmas spirit returning as she falls deeper and deeper in love with the handsome teacher.
