Former US Marine John Ving hates everything about holiday displays: they’re tacky, they waste energy, and they’re an eyesore. So what does his new neighbor do? He sets up the holiday spectacle from hell, and he doesn’t seem to care which holiday—he has a menorah, a baby Jesus, a Santa, and everything in between. Not to mention it’s swathed in enough lights his house is probably visible from space.
High-school teacher Kaden Melling loves the holidays, and huge light displays on his lawn make his heart glow. He’d love to share some cheer—and maybe some kinky fun—with his smoking hot neighbor John. Odd things start to happen to his displays, but just as he begins to think life is going his way, with the holidays and with John, a Grinch destroys everything.
It’s gonna take the display-hating John to set things right—and what he has planned might blow Kaden’s mind.
John hates the holidays, but gets forced into decorating his own house when he loses a game to his nephew. For the first time in years he actually puts a tree up when his nephews end up staying with him for a few days. It takes a visit from his ex to realize what it is he really didn’t like about the holidays.
Kaden is absolutely adorable and trying to keep his mother’s spirit alive with decorating and baking for the holidays. His brightness melts John a bit and I love how John is able to let his walls down for Kaden. I hurt for Kaden when someone steals his decorations and stomps on his Christmas spirit, but John won’t let that stop Kaden from having the Christmas he deserves.
