A Mom for Christmas is a 1990 fantasy/comedy television movie directed by George T. Miller and starring Olivia Newton-John. Based on the book A Mom by Magic by Barbara Dillon, the film originally aired on NBC on December 17, 1990. An historic home in Wyoming, Ohio was used as the story's family setting.


The story revolves around 11-year-old Jessica (Juliet Sorcey), whose mother died when she was three years old. Her father Jim (Doug Sheehan) is a workaholic with little time for his daughter. Just before the Christmas holiday season, Jessica wins a free wish from a wishing well. Her wish for a mother for Christmas is granted by Philomena (Doris Roberts) and Amy (Olivia Newton-John), a department store mannequin, is brought to life to be a mom for Jessica.
