Christmas has always been an exceptionally wonderful time for the town in Christmas With A Capital C. The town, and especially its mayor Dan Reed (Ted McGinley), always look forward to the events, festivities, friends, and family that fill the special time of the year. The entire town decorates for Christmas, and Dan, his brother Greg (Brad Stine), and their families are always on the forefront of the team. The town practically halts business to celebrate the holiday-- and most importantly remember the birth of Christ. The town is just gearing up for the festivities in Christmas With A Capital C when Dan's old high school rival Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin) rolls into town. Now Mitch has not been home to Trapper Falls for nearly twenty years-- and that is just fine with the town. The man had a reputation for being mean-spirited, bitter, and hating the town-- and even though the may now be a successful lawyer it soon becomes apparent that his reputation is still true, even twenty years later. Mitch almost immediately files a legal complaint against the Christmas decorations, saying they violate the town's rights. He demands all nativity scenes be removed from public places, and even wants to see the words "Merry Christmas" be replaced by "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" on any sign in town. Fifty years of tradition are now being threatened by a former member of the community. Things escalate quickly in Christmas With A Capital C as the conflict soon turns into a race between Dan and Mitch for the position of the town mayor. Just when everything seems to be falling apart Dan's wife Kristen (Nancy Stafford) and his daughter Makayla (Francesca Derosa) launch a "Christmas With A Capital C" campaign to remind the town of the true meaning of Christmas, and bring them back together. As the town struggles to defend their faith, they also struggle to see the reason for Mitch's return. Will they be able to band together once again, or will Christmas with a capital C be lost forever in the town of Trapper Falls?
