For people who believe all the holidays are worth celebrating.

So, they decide to rely on each other — in a scheme that will reach its crescendo on Christmas Eve!

Stacey De Novo (Vanessa Hudgens) is the queen of Belgravia and Lady Margaret (Vanessa Hudgens, again) is about to be crowned Queen of Montenaro.
