Drowning in tinsel and lights every Christmas, Michael and Caroline Anderson throw the year’s biggest party at their house. But this year, with Michael jobless and Caroline’s store struggling, that tradition may end. The Andersons decide to host a very different kind of party and, in the process, rediscover what’s most important about the holiday.

The purpose of the husband’s aunt or relative or whatever she is showing up is unclear; one assumes she is going to help them discover “the true meaning” of life, love, Christmas, etc., but she never really seems to provide any inspiration.
