Hallmark based its feature movie "November Christmas" on the book by Vanessa Marks that described her father's love and dedication when Marks suffered a serious illness as a child. Because of Marks' illness, her father wanted to shorten the wait between Halloween and Christmas so that his sick daughter could enjoy both holidays. When her father asked someone in the town about pumpkins and Christmas trees at the same time, Marks' neighbor figured out her father's plan. Eventually, the entire town helped Marks' father bring his daughter the joys of Halloween in August and Christmas in November.
