Did we miss something on diversity?

Be careful!

This is great for younger kids, but I would think twice if your kids are starting to question their belief in Santa. The mom is constantly questioning how her son still “believes”. I had to keep distracting my 8 and 9 year old during those scenes. Younger kids won’t catch on, but older kids will.

One of the Best Christmas-themed Hallmark films

Northpole really is one Hallmark Channel's best Christmas film. There are some moments that made me felt uncomfortable, but that didn't prevent me from liking this film. Nearly everything else about the film is good.
