Ever wonder how to make a Christmas movie in the middle of a Kansas City summer? You’ve come to the right place.
Rather than sit out the COVID-19 pandemic, Kansas City filmmakers Sandra Martin and Isaac Alongi conjured up a holiday movie. A few short months later, “My Sweet Holiday” is slated to premiere at 7 p.m. on Christmas Day on the Lifetime Channel.
“We’re both from Kansas City, so this is a great place for us,” Martin says. “We love working from home.”
Locals with a sweet tooth will be pleased to see Annedore’s Fine Chocolates in Westwood serve as the hub of events in the romantic Christmas movie.

“We’d really like to do a Christmas movie in the winter,” Martin says with a laugh.
