The Mistle-Tones

Synopsis: Holly, blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group's leader, Marci, Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure.

jingle bells, jingle

bells, jingle all the way

oh, what fun

it is to ride

in a one-horse

open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

jingle all the way

oh, what fun

it is to ride

in a one-horse

open sleigh

dashing through the snow

in a one-horse

open sleigh!

O'er the fields we go

laughing all the way

bells on bobtails ring

making spirits bright

what fun it is

to laugh and sing

a sleighing song tonight


Oh! Mr. bonkers...

You boil me to death

in my own shower,

there'll be no one

here to feed you.

What time is it?

I'm late! Oh!

Bonkers, what happened

to my dress?!

jingle bells, jingle bells

jingle all the way

oh, what fun it is to ride

in a one-horse

open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Close your eyes.

jingle all the way

oh, what fun it is to ride

in a one-horse

open sleigh

we wish you

a merry Christmas

we wish you a merry


we wish you

a merry Christmas

and a happy new...


Good tidings we bring

to you and your kin

good tidings for Christmas,

and a happy new year

Come on!

Ah! I still got time!

I can still make it.

We three kings

of orient are

bearing gifts,

we traverse afar

field and fountain,

moor and Mountain

following yonder star

o star of wonder, star of night...




westward leading, still proceeding


guide us to thy perfect light


hark the herald

angels sing

glory to the newborn king

peace on earth

and mercy mild...

It's okay.


thank you, Annette!

Wow, that was, uh...

That was beautiful.


Great job, girls.

There is a lot of talent

in this... town.

Ahem. As you know,

the snow belles have been

the very definition

of Christmas spirit

in richfield

for over 40 years.

Becoming a belle

is a big deal.

Now, we have a very difficult

decision to make.

So, to all of you,

we wish you good luck.

And, most importantly...


wish you

a merry Christmas

and a happy new year

You can go now.

Wait! Wait!

I'm so sorry I'm late.

My cat, my car,

and that stupid snowplow.

I'm sorry. Please tell me I

didn't miss the auditions.

Holly... oh, sweetie,

I would love

to let you try out,

but we only have the

church till 8:
30, so...

But it's only 8:

Ooh, yeah.

You just missed it.

I'm sure that's

really disappointing.

Please, Marci,

I've waited years

for a spot to open up

in the snow belles.

Now that Ingrid's gone...

May she rest in peace...

I cannot miss this chance.

Marci, her mom founded

the snow belles.

You have to

let her try out.

Look, Marci, I have

wanted this so bad.

It's all I ever think about.

Look at this.

I designed new costumes.

I got new arrangements

of classic Carols.

I'm just asking

for a chance, please.

I'm sorry. Maybe another

spot will open up soon.

In fact,

Barb's vocal chords

are aging much faster

than her face.

So fingers crossed.

Oh, I'm dying for

a gingerbread latte.

Let's go, girls.

O holy night

the stars are

brightly shining

it is the night

of the dear

savior's birth

long lay the world

in sin and error pining

till he appeared

and the soul

felt its worth

a thrill of hope

the weary world rejoices

for yonder breaks

a new and glorious morn


on your knees

o hear

the angel voices

o night


o night

when Christ was born

o night

o night

o night

o night divine

o night

o night

o night

o night divine


Thanks for making that

decision more difficult.

Yeah. Okay.

Well, we're gonna

go deliberate...

And caffeinate.

Let's go, girls.
