In “Naughty or Nice” we discover that it isn't always Santa Claus who “sees you when you’re sleeping,” “knows when you’re awake” and “knows when you've been bad or good,” as the song goes. Hilarie Burton portrays Krissy Kringle, a beautiful young woman who nonetheless rejects everything positive about the holiday season. As if the name she got saddled with wasn't bad enough, things really start falling apart as Christmas approaches. First, she gets fired from her high-powered advertising job, then her attorney boyfriend Lance (Matt Dallas) starts pestering her about marriage and on top of all of this, she lives on Candy Cane Lane! The final straw is her part-time job wrapping presents and playing Santa’s elf at the mall. One day, as she’s cursing the fates, Krissy gets mistakenly delivered a crusty old book titled Naughty or Nice that’s filled with blank pages. She doesn't think anything of it, until she recites someone’s name to the book and it suddenly springs to life, exposing the naughty deeds of those around her. Now, no one can hide their misdeeds from Krissy. But it turns out having this power isn't so nice. It takes a lot of trial and error for her to ultimately discover the power of love, humility, and the wonder of Christmas.
