| Liked the time travel aspect here
I've watched a fair few of these Hallmark Christmas movies, this was better than most despite the abrupt ending. I'm a sucker for the time travel stories though and that helped here. I particularly enjoyed the1940's parts and how they all connected in the future.

Candace Cameron Bure does a good job, she's perfect for these types of movies; sweet, innocent, kind. Tom Skerrit was a nice surprise here too, as was the comet part of the story -different.

Back To Christmas follows Bure as a World War II nurse whose husband is missing in action presumed dead. She grieves and continues her work at the VA hospital. On the night of the so-called Christmas Comet she bumps her head and suddenly finds herself transported to 2016 where after a 5150 sanity check she's taken in by a policeman and his family. As she unravels what happened to her and gets a makeover she helps his family find the true meaning of Christmas.
