OWN’s fifth annual OWN for the Holidays is in full swing and continues this weekend with “Christmas of Yes” on Saturday, December 9 at 9pm ET/PT. Amy Bell (Michele Weaver, “Love Is”) is a pro at turning down party invitations, vacations with friends, and even dates with eligible bachelors because she’s been laser-focused on her job. When her job is eliminated, her brother dares her to do something terrifying: say ‘yes’ to everything this holiday season. Amy is thrown for a loop when the challenge introduces her to the endearing Nico (Jeff Pierre, “Shameless”). Can Amy embrace saying yes and find love in the process?
