"A Gift to Last" is the greatest Christmas story I have ever seen
2 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most beautiful stories about father/son relationships ever presented on television. It is a crime that it is not shown every year. It has been many years since I last saw it, but it remains my favorite Christmas story. In this crazy hectic world of ours, it is nice to look back at a time when things were quite simple, times were tough, and relationships were just as difficult then as they are today. I urge everyone to write to the CBC and ask them to please present this remarkable show again each Christmas. It is a classic that should never be forgotten. So I ask the CBC to brush off this treasure of theirs and please share it with us once again.
