The Duke then thanks Jules for putting up with “an old fool”. That’s no way to talk about Paisley! Oh, he means himself. He then tells Ashton “don’t let that girl get away”. Ashton then asks Jules if she would consider extending her stay. The Duke, in the meantime, is over with the staff, telling them to get a receipt to him for the gown.
Now the Duke has the doors opened to the study, and what to my wondering eyes doth appear? A fat old guy and eight tiny reindeer. Well, I assume the reindeer are outside. It’s Santa of course. The Duke says he wishes Charles were there. Jules says he is, in Milo and Maddie – didn’t the Duke himself say that already? – and so is her sister. And then there are fireworks. Those are outside though. Safety first!
We end with the wedding, when Frau catches the bouquet, Jules says to Ashton, “Hello my prince” and he responds “Hello my princess”.
So did they. Next year, Hallmark premieres A Divorce for Christmas.
And everyone lived, more or less happily or not, forever. Well, until they died. Which in the Duke’s case was probably a few weeks. Also, Paisley isn’t looking that spry anymore. So basically some people lived, some died, and sometimes some of them weren’t too miserable. That’s a freaking Christmas miracle, all right.
Thanks so much for joining me on this delightful journey to a magical land of wonderment and wholly implausible characters and plots. Happy Holidays, and don’t forget to donate to charity.
Here’s a good one.
