Luke loves Christmas. He loves the woolly scarves, the mulled wine, the music, the snow. But he's beginning to ask: what good is it, if you have no one to share it with?

Laura doesn't think there's anything magical about December. She'd never normally be seen dead with a man in a Christmas jumper. But, at a crowded gig this winter's evening, has she found her soulmate in handsome, funny frontman, Luke?

Under the lights, something magical begins. But will Luke and Laura still feel the same on this day next December? And the one after that?

Finding love at Christmas is special. But is staying in love - year after year, through the joy and heartbreak - the real miracle?

Luke and Laura are about to find out. One December day at a time...
