A wonderful family Christmas film
25 November 2012 | by (Plymouth, England) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film with my Mum back in the 80's on VHS and was enchanted by its Christmas message and the story of Father Christmas. When I saw it was available on DVD a few years ago I couldn't believe my luck! It's now a family tradition for my family to sit down on Xmas eve and watch this wonderful movie every year. In an age where children lose their innocence at such a young age it's nice to be able to view a movie which captures the magic and joy of the Xmas season. A heartwarming tale that is sure to be enjoyed by children of all ages with a few musical numbers chucked in for good measure! Make this your family Xmas film now- you won't regret it!
