The fourth Hallmark Channel “Countdown to Christmas” Hanukkah movie, “Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” premieres at 8 p.m. Saturday.

“Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” stars Mia Kirshner as Christina Rossi, the chef and owner of an Italian restaurant in Cleveland she has taken over from her late mother, who learns from a DNA test she is Jewish as she is preparing for the restaurant’s busiest time of year, Christmas.

The discovery leads her to a new family, new traditions and a new and an unlikely romance with handsome, witty and very opinionated restaurant critic/author David Singer (Ben Savage) over eight nights.

The cast also includes Marilu Henner as a longtime friend of Singer’s family.

A collection of more than 200 vintage dreidels was rented from a woman in St. Louis for use in the film.
