New England, 1906. In The Twelve Months of Christmas, Charlotte Holland is struggling to manage all her responsibilities as headmistress of her boarding school for girls. But when the girls realize just how much their teacher sacrifices for their sake, they decide to treat every day as if it were Christmas and show Miss Holland how much she is loved.

Their year-long Christmas project, however, meets a challenge when all of Miss Holland’s long-lost uncles decide to show up in the same week. One of them — Morris Holland — holds a deep grudge against Charlotte’s late father and is willing to destroy everything she has worked for in order to get his hands on the family fortune. Charlotte and her girls must decide who to trust and how to keep Christmas alive throughout the year while Morris is trying to undermine what holds them together.
