A war hero (Dennis Morgan) becomes the object of a publicity stunt staged by magazine publisher (Sidney Greenstreet). The corpulent print mogul announces that Morgan has won a Christmas dinner, to be prepared by the magazine's housekeeping expert (Barbara Stanwyck) in her own Connecticut home.
The catch: Not only does Stanwyck not have a home in Connecticut, but she's never been in a kitchen in her life! She also doesn't have a husband (as her articles claim), so Stanwyck's erstwhile beau (Reginald Gardiner) is pressed into service as the hubby. As for the cooking, that will be handled by her neighbor, a master chef (S. Z. "Cuddles" Sakall). This solves everything, right? Watch the fun and see!
Christmas in Connecticut has its own irresistible charm, and has become a perennial Christmas TV attraction.

As we gather to enjoy this special holiday screening of Christmas in Connecticut, we can't help but think of the community that suffered such tragic loss on December 14.
If you've been looking for a way to show your support we encourage you to visit My Sandy Hook Family Fund.
This fund has been established by Newtown and its surrounding communities to help grieving families with immediate expenses–including funeral services–as well as ongoing living expenses such as food, day care and fuel.
Your contribution will enable the people of Newtown to help and support their own neighbors when they need it most!
