Time travel: yay or nay? And does it belong in our holiday movies? Join my friend, Aliza Latta, and me as we discuss this and so much more in this week’s holiday movie recap episode.

Aliza is a Canadian writer, artist, and author—and a huge fan of telling stories. Her artwork and writing has been featured in publications for LifeWay, Dayspring, and (in)courage. She is always searching for the goodness of God, even when she has to squint to see it. And when Aliza reminded me that she watches holiday movies while creating all the pieces she sells in her Christmas market, I knew I had to get her on the couch. Not literally, unfortunately, because she does live in Canada. But metaphorically – podcastilly? – is the next best thing! So today we are talking about two of the new Hallmark movies we watched last weekend: Gingerbread Miracle and Next Stop, Christmas.

Of course, because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also get into our favorite holiday snacks and our differing opinions on time travel stories. Hint: Aliza is wrong, and I am right, you’ll just have to listen to see if you agree. So, let’s get started!
