Friends watching movie and having fun on Christmas Eve

Peanut butter and jelly. Chips and salsa. Forks and knives. All iconic duos. Based on the way things have been going as of late, one might assume that janitors and the entertainment industry are about to join the list of iconic combos.

A custodian and maintenance worker for an Illinois High School has penned an unpublished Christmas novel that is also being made into a cable television movie, reports WGN.

Rick Dunlap, who writes novels when he’s not working at Flossmoor High School in Flossmoor, Illinois, wrote a book called “The Christmas Tree Lot,” based on a Christmas tree lot located in a Chicago suburb. His agent approached Hallmark with the story, and they bought the rights to the holiday tale.

Just a few weeks before word of Dunlap’s success broke, it was announced that a movie is being made about the the man who created Flaming’ Hot Cheetos while working as a janitor at a Frito-Lay plant.
