The true meaning of Christmas.
8 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best Christmas Movie I have ever seen!! It is great for all ages. It truly captures the essence of Christmas. Many times we forget what Christmas means, and this takes us right back to it. It has a great cast. They all play their parts real well. Many times we forget people who are in need or we judge them by the way they look. We forget to look closer and see the real human being. This is a great movie for children to watch to learn values from. I haven't seen it in years and have been looking at all the Christmas movies on television wanting to see it again. I love all the funny movies at Christmas, but this is the one that touches my heart.
