But along the way someone made the point that two Christmas films in a canon would naturally leave one wondering what they could cover in another film that For Christmas didn't adequately explore.
And then it hit me---an engagement!
A Christmas engagement would be a perfect fit for NoRita. If you remember from For Christmas, and discussions here on the blog about age and length of service, Norman and Rita have, at a base level, accumulated 4 years of friendship, and that was by the end of 2014. By the end of 2016, they will have known each other 6 years, and dated for almost two of them.
As a point of fact, they're less than a year into their relationship as it is and have already exchanged "I love you's." To think that an engagement could take place by the end of 6 years wouldn't be the craziest thing I ever heard!
You're squealing---I can hear you from here!
That's not to say that Martha couldn't pen another 6 Christmas films that would captivate us in the best way possible sans engagement---she could certainly achieve that! But from where I'm sitting, and because Kristin seems so sure about it, I have reason to believe that 2016 is all but mapped out in final form. That means the Postables are working towards something in 2016, something that it's never too late to start speculating about!
After all, they did return to work this week!
What do you think? Could an engagement be on the not-so-distant horizon for NoRita? Let me know in the comments!

More Than Happy To Speculate,
